Things to do for December 06, 2013
The Weekender: Tacos, Bar Carts and Tron
You and a guest are invited to the exclusive premiere of The Weekend.
Nine Courses in a Cereal Stronghold
Cereal restaurants: they sell breakfast to people who seriously lack kitchen skills. Cereal restaurants in Venice: well, sometimes they give birth to Alma. Now Flake’s got a pop-up from a chef who’s done time with Wolfgang Puck, involving nine-course menus of duck confit pot stickers and rabbit mole. No Crunch Berries.
Up to 70% Off at James Perse
At James Perse’s huge sample sale, they’re offering up to 70% off their streamlined, giftable T-shirts, fleece outerwear, corduroy jackets and cashmere blankets. Not a bad deal, though it would be even better with tacos and cocktails. Oh yeah. They’re giving you Guerrilla Tacos tacos and cocktails.
In Case You Need a Bar Cart...
You still need to buy presents for people. Westin Mitchell Design Group happens to be clearing out an entire warehouse of industrial coffee tables, vintage bar carts and random antiques priced at up to 40% off. You two really should get together. See where this goes.
Just Look at These Old Hollywood Pics
Dean Martin cracking up the Rat Pack. Newman and Woodward being intimate. James Dean lounging on the Giant set. Sid Avery was there for all these moments. More importantly, he thought to bring his camera. Now those rarely seen photos are showing up at a Westside gallery. Without hashtags.
Here Comes an Arcade Bar
Finally, a new bar filled with retro video games is opening Downtown... next year. First it’s doing a preview pop-up at Independent Label Market. Expect Lamill-coffee-spiked cocktails plus Street Fighter II, The Simpsons and Tron. And no quarters required. In this case you’ll allow the historical inaccuracy.
