Things to do for April 11, 2013

The Weekender

Cereal Ice Cream, Ukuleles and a Pool to Party in at Coachella

The weekend will take the stage any minute now.

Thursday
Rolex. Cartier. Hublot. Only on Perks.
PERK ALERT

Rolex. Cartier. Hublot. Only on Perks.

Behold: an exclusive batch of Rolexes, Cartiers and other refined vintage watches—only available on Perks. (Your wrist will thank you later.) We’re also getting you 29% off some amazing shave creams, cologne and more. Plus: 25% off some handsome-as-hell headphones. (Bonus: if you’ve got an Outlook.com account, you get an extra 10% off.)

50 Beatles Songs. One Ukulele.
UKULELE SUBMARINE

50 Beatles Songs. One Ukulele.

Finally, the biggest music event of the year is here. No, not Coachella—some guy at Los Globos playing 50 of the Beatles’ greatest hits back-to-back on a ukulele. “A Hard Day’s Night” never sounded so ukulele-y.

Saturday
Wild Pool Partying in the Desert
XIV AGAIN

Wild Pool Partying in the Desert

The trouble with Coachella is dealing with all those bands. Really gets in the way of your daytime-pool-party schedule. Unless you hit up sbe’s big XIV party on Saturday instead—think eight hours of champagne, sunblock and blue, blue hotel-pool water. Indio cannonballs: somehow superior to LA cannonballs.

Chez Soi Is Open. You Should Go.
CHEZ WHAT

Chez Soi Is Open. You Should Go.

First came the bad news: that great little restaurant on Beverly, Eva, closed. Then came the good: the chef is now set up at the new Chez Soi—it’s in Manhattan Beach, and it’s fully stocked with loup de mer and edible flowers. Which always help you get over bad news.

Now open, Chez Soi, 451 D Manhattan Beach Blvd, Manhattan Beach, 310-802-1212

Sunday
Ice Cream on the Beach, Stat
COLD FRONT

Ice Cream on the Beach, Stat

It’s getting close: beach season. To be more specific: Cap’n-Crunch-ice-cream-on-the-beach season. Every Sunday, you’ll now find a Sprinkles Ice Cream cart parked out on the sand in front of the Casa del Mar. Breakfast ice cream is the most important meal of the day.

Tuesday
A Crazy NYC Club, Here in LA
LE LADY LE

A Crazy NYC Club, Here in LA

So, Le Bain. That crazy club atop the Standard in NYC. You’ve heard of it. You’ve... maybe witnessed some table-dancing inside of it. Anyway, that’s all coming here for one irresponsible Tuesday night. There, now you have something to do in between Coachella weekends.
