The long-delayed neighborhood den of sausage, beer and Scoops gelato (a new culinary trifecta for the ages) finally bows on Fairfax today. Think brick, concrete and shopping bags from The Hundreds.
Things to do for March 05, 2009
Pirate Burlesque, Beer in Beakers and French Brunch
The weekend is thinking only of beer.
Craftbar Now Open
Tom Colicchio, taking a break from his busy Diet Coke-hawking schedule (we kid, we kid), has launched a new
menu at Craft's bar and patio. Everything, from Berkshire Pork Rillettes in a Jar to Bloody
Mary Martinis, is under $10.
Good idea to entice you to shop: dirt-cheap denim, blazers, shirts and cardigans slashed below a hundred bucks for three hours only. Better idea: in-store beer pong while it all goes down.
For the first time, acclaimed French chef (and husband to Jeri Ryan) Christophe Émé is opening up his doors for Sunday brunch starting this weekend—three courses from Oeuf Benedict to Honey Parfait come to $45.
Watching a talented burlesque dancer is great, sure, but give the girls an eyepatch and a parrot and you've really got something special. To sweeten the pot, the buxom buccaneers are led by Anastasia von Teaserhausen (best pirate dancer name ever).
Historically, you don't make a habit of trolling USC hotspots for a good time. But when a chem lab-style gastropub debuts just off campus—serving Trojan Blonde Ale in beakers—you might have to make an exception.
