Things to do for January 23, 2014
Beachside Pizza, Bourbon Pie and Donkey Kong
The weekend once went undercover at Gold’s Gym.
Fred Segal Does the Huge-Sale Thing
Well, the Grammys are this weekend, so you’ve got two party scenarios: 1) black tie, or 2) a leather jacket and Pendleton flannel somewhere near a friend’s TV and beers. If you’re feeling scenario 2, hit Fred Segal’s big up-to-75%-off sale first. Your friend does usually have good beers...
800 Degrees, Now by the Beach
Critical news about your ongoing beachside-pizza needs: the second location of 800 Degrees just opened in Santa Monica, it’s double the original’s size, and it’s open until 2am. Not that you’ve ever craved pizza at such hours.
Sometimes Brite Spot Puts Whiskey in Pie
Say you’re in Echo Park tonight. Say you caught a friend’s band, or drank a beer then drank another beer. Say you suddenly remember we told you that tonight Brite Spot’s putting bourbon in their pecan pies and whiskey in their buttermilk pies. Because we did just tell you that.
Dancing, Drinks and Donkey Kong
On a Friday night out in Hollywood, you’ve got just three requirements for the dance floor: Donkey Kong, Pac-Man and Tetris. There’s a party called Pop-Up Playroom (in the old Crane’s), and they brought the arcade games, the DJ and the... cocktails with Twizzlers straws. Those weren’t a requirement, but whatever.
Red Medicine Comes to Formosa Cafe
You’ve long known Formosa Cafe for a certain kind of darkness-martini-Bogart ambiance. But you probably never thought to visit for credible Vietnamese food—now the Red Medicine guys just decided to take over the menu and fill it with banh mi, dumplings and spring rolls. Bogey loved spring rolls.
