Things to do for December 19, 2013
Fish Tacos, Beer and Sweaters That Are Not Beautiful
The true meaning of weekend.
Ricky’s Got Fish Tacos Again
You’ve had a dark 10 months. Oh, everything’s fine, just... your world kind of ended when Ricky’s Fish Tacos left Silver Lake. Good news: Ricky got a truck. And it’ll be parked right back at his old address. Every time you eat a taco, an angel gets its wings.
A Merry Sale at Rag & Bone
It’s cold. It’s hot. It’s raining. Turns out you might need some insulated layers to get through this winter thing. Huh. Anyway, Rag & Bone’s got near-endless wool-suede pullovers and down-filled nylon jackets at 30% to 70% off. Good timing.
Running a 5K in an Ugly Sweater
You could stand around at a party in your ugly sweater—or you could run a 5K in it. The Ugly Sweater Run is happening at a Downtown park, and there’s beer and hot chocolate at the finish line. Where you’ll stand around in your sweater.
Bru’s Wiffle Gets a Westwood Sister
Bru’s Wiffle handled your mornings with churro waffles, even if your “mornings” started a bit post-noon. The owner’s new Westwood spot is for when you actually want post-noon lunch: wood-grilled Angus burgers and jidori chicken banh mi. Or as some call them, not-waffles.
Cecconi’s Unveils... This Monstrosity
Some people lie low with relatives on December 24. Others carbo-load. Assuming you’re in the latter camp (the next day’s unwrapping gets intense), call up Cecconi’s now and preorder the one-night-only Timpano—it’s basically a giant cheesy cake filled with rigatoni, eggs, Bolognese, salami and meatballs. So not really cake.
