Things to do for February 13, 2014

The Weekender

Truffles, Pheromones and Park Dancing

Dumb weekend.

Thursday
Five-Course Tastings at Allumette
HOW YOU ’METTE

Five-Course Tastings at Allumette

Enter Allumette. Sit down. There. Your part is done, because they’ve ditched that strange “normal menu” situation—now you’re getting five-course tastings of always-changing dishes like pasilla chili with blue prawns. If you must go à la carte, you still can at the bar. Your bar needs remain pretty specific...

Available now at Allumette, 1320 Echo Park Ave, Echo Park, 213-935-8787

Friday
Dancing and Lobster Rolls in a Park
ON A ROLL

Dancing and Lobster Rolls in a Park

Valentine’s Day Option A: Low-lit dinner. Flowers. That kind of thing. Valentine’s Option B: Dancing to funk and soul bands until 1am in Grand Park, with drinks from the Echo and a lobster-roll truck. Option A probably should have been figured out by now.

A Pheromone-Heavy Rubdown
FOUR PLAY

A Pheromone-Heavy Rubdown

Pheromones supposedly attract other humans, so this could make for an interesting Friday: 1) Go to the Four Seasons. 2) Let them do a new massage that involves rubbing pheromones all over your body. 3) Step outside and let the chips fall where they may.

Available through Feb 28, $180 (60 minutes) or $260 (90 minutes), The Spellbound Massage at The Spa at Four Seasons, 300 S Doheny Dr, Beverly Hills, 310-273-2222

Saturday
A Morning Run in Your Underwear
IN BRIEF

A Morning Run in Your Underwear

Saturday morning, you’ll probably wake up with no pants on. Good. Stay that way. Because a few hundred good Samaritans plan to run a mile around West Hollywood Park in their underwear for charity. And you need to work on that winter tan anyway.

Black Truffles x 18 at Saam
18 AGAIN

Black Truffles x 18 at Saam

Black truffles = good. Spherified mussels = sure, great. Black truffles on spherified mussels = Saam. For the next month, the José Andrés restaurant-behind-a-restaurant is going nuts with 18 black-truffle-y courses, and none of the courses are, like, risotto.

Thu-Sat through Mar 15, $250, Saam at The Bazaar, 465 S La Cienega Blvd, Beverly Hills, reservations recommended at 310-246-5555
