Things to do for June 06, 2013
Tacos, Top-Siders and the Malibu Shore
Come for the week, stay for the weekend.
24 Lanes of Bowling and Pizza
It wouldn’t take much to get you away from your usual haunts and to a Little Tokyo place called XLanes. Maybe just 24 bowling lanes, 24 beers, 100 arcade games and 16 inches of Dragon’s Breath pizza (topped with ghost chilies). Call that a ballpark estimate.
For Lunch: Tacos, Then Some Tacos
You’ve waited at least 8,000 years for the new Tinga outpost in Santa Monica to start serving lunch. Okay, maybe it’s only been a few weeks. Still. You’re practically a saint. And finally your patience has been rewarded. They have tacos. Go to them.
A Very Downtown Jubilee
If you’ve been looking forward to another Silver Lake session of outdoor rock at the Jubilee Music Fest: sorry. It’s Downtown now. In a warehouse. The Drums will be there to console you. And Fool’s Gold. And other great bands you’ll either know or want to pretend to know.
Alpha’s Back. Go Buy Things.
There was that one day when the Alpha store closed and you were sort of distraught, wondering where you’d buy your Top-Siders, shirts and random gadgets. Silly you. The pop-ups started soon after, and the latest is Downtown. You can buy... Top-Siders, shirts and random gadgets.
Alfresco Surf Cinema in Malibu
You’re in Malibu on a Sunday night. You’re seeing stars and sky and ocean and a bunch of surfers doing surfer-y stuff. But you’re not actually looking at the shore. You’re sitting in the grass at Malibu Country Mart, watching a screen that’s playing The Endless Summer Revisited. Huh.
