Meet your Perks: 1) The world’s smallest earphones—used by the Secret Service and the FBI. 2) One-of-a-kind watches from the golden age of watchmaking. 3) 20% off the world’s sexiest, ultraportable hi-fi stereo from Geneva Lab. The Swiss really outdid themselves this time.
Things to do for September 26, 2013
Hollywood Oysters, Rare Wine and Fred Segal Madness
For once, the weekend was better than the book.
The Fred Segal Sale Is Back
If you’re craving some tequila tonight, you could hit some bar... or Fred Segal, where they’re giving the stuff away. Tonight, their massive fall sale begins, including Band of Outsiders and Rag & Bone at half off. It’s harder to get a new shirt at a bar without things ending poorly.
Umami Burger Piles On the Bacon
The 9,452nd Umami, now in the Arts District, is the only place you can get something called the Arts District Manly Burger. Apparently, the recipe for manliness includes a bacon-beef patty topped with pork belly, beer-cheddar fondue and baconnaise, on a bacon-fat-griddled bun. The beer-cheddar fondue is the feminine side.
Your New Go-To Wine Shop
There’s one wine-shop strategy that works every time: go to great wine shop where everything is good, pick whatever. Related: the man behind that great wine bar Lou just opened one next to SQIRL, filled with unusual bottles like a rare Mendocino valdiguié. Nothing worse than an un-rare valdiguié.
Obscene Quantities of Thai Food
It’s been too long since your last Thai bender. (Even if you had Thai last night.) Good thing the Paramount lot is becoming one big Thai market on Sunday, overstuffed with food from Jitlada, Night + Market, Sang Yoon and Pok Pok’s Andy Ricker. Basically, the Thai-food dream team.
Dollar Oysters at Delphine
Monday night, you’ve got two options. 1) Go to Delphine for an all-you-can-eat feast of lobster, clam chorizo and lobster bisque for 42 bucks. 2) Go to Delphine for dollar oysters. 3) Don’t go to Delphine. Like we said, you’ve got two options.
