The Weekender

Downtown Sushi, Warhol and Beachside Dining

Don’t hate the weekend because it’s beautiful.

Thursday
41 Ocean: The Sequel
POETRY IN OCEAN

41 Ocean: The Sequel

Look outside. Great weather for beachside oysters and dry-aged steak from a BOA vet. 41 Ocean’s new restaurant has all this—and unlike the private club beyond, this restaurant’s open to everyone. Except when it’s closed.

Rag & Bone Comes to Brentwood

TO THE BONE

Rag & Bone Comes to Brentwood

Just in time for LA’s chilly season (note: let’s pretend that exists), Rag & Bone’s new Brentwood store has all the necessary denim, cashmere and leather to combat that light breeze that’ll hit you when you end up on some Downtown rooftop, Hennessy Black in hand. You’re feeling warmer already.

411: Now open, Rag & Bone, 11715 San Vicente Blvd, Brentwood, 310-820-0754

Friday
20 Courses of Purist Sushi
Q’S THE BOSS

20 Courses of Purist Sushi

You go to an attractive little Downtown cove slung with glowing orbs. You are forced to eat 20 courses of San Diego uni and kinki (yes, that’s a fish) on unsweetened rice from a Tokyo chef, because it’s an omakase-only place. You... feel pretty okay about all that.

Beer and Tacos at Garrett Leight
LEIGHT OF HAND

Beer and Tacos at Garrett Leight

Tacos and icy Dutch beer. Crazy geometric Tofer Chin paintings. A DJ named Heidi. Yes, you are at a party in a Venice eyewear store. Garrett Leight’s Abbot Kinney shop is having a birthday, and you’re invited. Even if your vision’s 20/20.

Saturday
Five Hours of Watching a Man Sleep
SNOOZEFEST

Five Hours of Watching a Man Sleep

Saturday at midnight, you definitely won’t be sleeping yet. So you should probably be watching Andy Warhol’s five-hour movie about... watching some guy sleeping. It’s supposedly way better than the book.

Tuesday
Ricardo Zarate Hits Santa Barbara
INTO THE BLUE

Ricardo Zarate Hits Santa Barbara

Sure, Santa Barbara has beautiful beaches and scenic hills, but you’ve noticed a distinct lack of wood-fired burrata pizzas with Peruvian huacatay pesto. And you could really use some more mezcal Old Fashioneds. Hey, thanks, Ricardo Zarate (yes, the Mo-Chica/Picca chef), for handling that.

Opens Nov 19, Blue Tavern, 119 State St, Santa Barbara, 805-845-0989
