Things to do for January 24, 2013

The Weekender

Beer and Board Games, Maybe Some Other Stuff

And the home... of the... weekend.

Thursday
In Case of Sandwich Emergency...
CLOVER AND OUT

In Case of Sandwich Emergency...

You’re sitting in La Brea traffic. And suddenly it overcomes you: an uncontrollable need for a sandwich, an almost offensively healthy shake and some kombucha on tap. So pull over. Enter Clover. It’s a juice bar from the Churchill guys—to balance out all the damage you do at the Churchill.

BASE Mondrian Opens. It’s a Shop.
TOUCHING BASE

BASE Mondrian Opens. It’s a Shop.

At most hotel gift shops, you might find a toothbrush and a T-shirt that says you “heart” something or other. Most hotels are not the Mondrian on the Sunset Strip—their new lobby shop has skateboards, Italian jewelry, Comme des Garçons wallets, clothes from Apolis... and toothbrushes. Just in case.

Now open, BASE Mondrian at Mondrian, 8440 W Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, 323-650-8999

Friday
Drinks at Kate Mantilini, Please
WHO’S THE MANTILINI

Drinks at Kate Mantilini, Please

You’ve had many an industry meal at Kate Mantilini. Might’ve even sat at table 24, where Michael Mann sat when he directed that De Niro–Pacino scene in Heat. And now Table 24 is a scotch drink on the new cocktail list by Devon Espinosa (from Pour Vous). Order it anywhere.

Saturday
Breakfast and Board Games at Tony’s
TONY’S THE TIGER

Breakfast and Board Games at Tony’s

So: big game coming. No, not that one. The “Breakfast of Champions” showdown at Tony’s Darts Away—a two-morning tournament involving beer and randomly selected board games (might be Jenga, might be Chutes and Ladders). Winning two-person team gets a pair of growlers. Better than a trophy, really.

Monday
Magnum Mondays at STK
MAGNUM, P.I.

Magnum Mondays at STK

Anytime you have a steak is cause for celebration. Do it Monday at STK and you’ll see what we mean—think DJ, dancers and magnums of champagne going for the price of a bottle. See, red meat is good for you.

Monthly starting Jan 28, STK, 755 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-659-3535
