Things to do for January 16, 2014

The Weekender

Burgers, Your Face and Olympic Snowboarding

Redford, Hanks and Oprah are all invited to the weekend’s place for ice cream.

Thursday
Unionmade Loot, 40% Off. Yes.
AMERICAN ’MADE

Unionmade Loot, 40% Off. Yes.

If you get some ice cream at Sweet Rose Creamery in Brentwood this weekend, you might find yourself slightly... cold-ish? Some sort of unfamiliar winter sensation. Stop next door at Unionmade for Kenneth Field coats and other fall/winter stuff on the cheap. Wear coat back to car. Remove coat.

Ongoing in-store and online, Unionmade, 225 26th St, 310-656-3373

Square One’s Lucky Duck
MIGHTY DUCK

Square One’s Lucky Duck

You go to Square One for breakfast. You go to Square One for lunch. You... consider the fetal position whenever you think how they’ve forsaken you at dinner. Enter the empire’s new dinner spot, Lucky Duck, with oysters, ribeye and grass-fed burgers. You can stay un-fetal then.

Now open, Lucky Duck, 2630 Hyperion Ave, 323-686-6304

Friday
Dinner Arrives at the Ace
CHAPTER ONE

Dinner Arrives at the Ace

Checkered floor: yes. Stained glass: yes. Barrel-aged cocktails and sea urchin pasta: yes and yes. Great. Looks like the Ace Hotel’s modern bistro, LA Chapter, will have everything you require for a Downtown dinner date. The stained glass was nonnegotiable.

Saturday
Everything Your Face Needs
THE MOT THICKENS

Everything Your Face Needs

The nominations are out. The party circuit begins. The Motley’s got a new grooming pop-up, with all the Jack Black shaving lather, Billy Jealousy facial cleanser and Imperial Barber pomade to get you through those black-tie nights. From the neck up, anyway.

Olympic Snowboarding at Mammoth
BOARD OF THE RINGS

Olympic Snowboarding at Mammoth

To catch some Olympic-grade snowboarding without commercials, go to Mammoth this weekend—that’s where the Faint is playing a show. Oh, and where US contenders will compete for their shot at the Sochi winter games. It’s only slightly less chilly than the race for Best Supporting Actress.
