We assume you need to buy someone a gift. So here are three great options: 1) A snow-globe-sized wireless speaker, 30% off. 2) Spending $25 and getting $50 worth of handsome gadgets and accessories from LA gadget shop Alpha. 3) Impossibly delicious, freshly baked cookies delivered directly from Brooklyn.
Things to do for December 13, 2012
Mimosa Flights, Christmas Sherry and Bacon
The weekend is so excited, it’s so excited, it’s so... scared.
Sherry Season at 15 Romolo
Sherry. Great name, even better drink. Well, the guys at 15 Romolo devised a Christmas menu with bottles of their favorite sherries and 14 sherry drinks, including the Santa’s Suckerpunch. We’re guessing it doesn’t involve milk and cookies.
Bags. Jeans. Beer. Wine. Proceed.
Friday night, there’ll be two different shopping-related soirees. First, stop by FiDi’s Mulholland for wine and 20% off leather goods. Then head to Self Edge on Valencia for beer and a rare 12% off denim, shirts and more leather goods. Black Friday wishes it were this fun.
Another Sale. More Beer. No Complaints.
You’re going to have to roll up your sleeves for this one. But the reward is a deal on nearly everything the guys at Taylor Stitch amassed over time: khakis, shirts, ties and Rancourt shoe samples, plus gear from Farm Tactics. Oh, and tap beer from Pac Brew Lab. Maybe we should’ve mentioned that first.
Mimosa Brunching at Nectar
Brunch is always a delicate balance of recovery and revelry. Take the new offering from Thrive Juicery and Nectar wine bar. There, you’ll try, say, a colorful flight of apple-cucumber, strawberry-pineapple and/or orange-beet mimosas with frittatas and flatbreads. Actually, that might just be revelry.
If you didn’t get an all-points bulletin about the Bacon Bacon truck’s tragic engine fire, well... it happened. And now we’re all hands on deck to get it running again. Hence this dinner: graze on braised pork belly and risotto (made with bacon, scallops and clams), and soon the world will be right again.
