Your Perks: 1. Tickets to the ESPYS, where you’ll hang with the world’s top athletes (and Jon Hamm) before hitting the official post-party. 2. Exclusive vintage Rolexes and Omegas in mint condition. 3. A pro-grade ice ball maker used by the best cocktail dens. Your summer cocktails deserve this...
Things to do for July 11, 2013
Zoo Drinking, Rock Art and Christmas in July
The weekend doesn’t sweat. It glistens.
A Lot of Mac and Cheese at the Hudson
Bars: good. Bars with classic mac and cheese: better. Bars with three additional kinds of mac and cheese every Thursday—maybe blackened chicken, Italian sausage and artichoke with blistered grape tomatoes—well, that’s just the Hudson.
Oh, You Know. Drinking at the Zoo.
Last time you went to the zoo, you saw some zebras and an elephant or something—neat. Also, you were 12. Well... starting tonight, the LA Zoo has a whole after-dark thing happening. Live music. Food trucks. Stand-up. And yes, a full bar. Circle of life.
The Doughroom Is Here with Pizza
You wouldn’t be doing your job in life if a big, airy Westside pizza joint opened and you didn’t check it out immediately. So... hello, Doughroom, all casement windows and perfectly charred pizzas and peach shortcake. You didn’t get to where you are by ignoring peach shortcake.
Christmas in July. Sure, Why Not.
Seems like it was only seven months ago that you were seeing Christmas trees. Because it was. Still, this weekend, you’ll be next to one, watching Elf. It’s a “Christmas in July”–themed outdoor screening, and yes, there will be food trucks. As long as you don’t hear Bing Crosby at Rite Aid yet...
Rock Star Moments at Sunset Marquis
Mick Jagger and Björk—both’ve had some interesting hair days, and both have been photographed by Dave Stewart. Head to Sunset Marquis this weekend and you’ll see plenty of rock stars in his new exhibit, Jumpin’ Jack Flash & The Suicide Blonde. Then, you’ll see some more rock stars at the bar.
