The Weekender

Beignets, Burgers and a Particularly Handsome Basement. Happy Weekend.

You didn’t hear it from the weekend, but...

Thursday
Have a Bunch of Sliders in WeHo
SLIDER HOUSE RULES

Have a Bunch of Sliders in WeHo

Maybe you’re not in the mood for a full burger. Maybe just... several smaller burgers. Meet Burgerim, a casual new takeout joint offering combos like the Surf and Turf (one ahi slider, one beef) and The Mediterranean (one merguez, one lamb). Also: beignets. Beignets are generally nonnegotiable.

Now open, Burgerim, 8593 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-854-0234

The Duncan Quinn Suiting Bus
IN IT TO QUINN IT

The Duncan Quinn Suiting Bus

You could go to the Duncan Quinn store and get measured for a Savile Row–style suit. Sure. But if given the choice between getting measured in a store or a double-decker party bus parked out front and filled with rum, well, that’s not too tough of a choice, really.

Saturday
Anaconda Boxing Gloves, Right Here
GLOVE FEST

Anaconda Boxing Gloves, Right Here

There’s this new store. Looks kind of palatial. Kind of totally for women, with snakeskin purses and stuff. But it’s got four rooms, and one of them in the back is mostly devoted to python-skin flasks. And anaconda-skin boxing gloves. And condom boxes. Suddenly you’re ready for anything. Really. Anything.

A Sprawling New Cavern of Grooming
DEAR JOHN

A Sprawling New Cavern of Grooming

Get a haircut and sure, your head looks great. But not your shoes (could use a shine), your shoulders (could use a massage) or your hand (could use a cue stick). Head to the basement of Saks, and NYC grooming import John Allan’s will handle it all. Yes, billiards counts as grooming.

Now open, John Allan’s, 9634 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, 310-887-5503

Sunday
Spicy Sausage and Beer: A Challenge
WURST THAT COULD HAPPEN

Spicy Sausage and Beer: A Challenge

Go to the Hollywood outpost of Berlin Currywurst on Sunday, stroll confidently to the counter and proclaim that you’ll take your sausage at heat level five. Yes, that’s the hottest. When you finish it—yes, when, not if—your beer is magically half-price. And the heat level is zero.
