Your Perks: 1) A new pair of summer sunglasses. They’re 100% handmade and 20% off. 2) Portable battery cases and packs to keep your phone charged for twice as long. Because it’s a marathon... 3) Smokeless fireplaces and mini waterfalls. Also known as the world’s most interesting office decor.
Things to do for June 05, 2014
Bourbon, Donuts and Homicidal Maniacs
Tempted by the weekend of another.
Jell-O Negronis at the Varnish
Reasons you just might prefer your Negronis in Jell-O form at the Varnish this weekend:
1) They don’t spill.
2) They exist.
Lo Mein with a Dark Secret
Instead of delivery from your usual Chinese place, you can now get agave-spiced spare ribs and General Tso’s free-range chicken delivered from a Chinese place that refuses to reveal its true identity. So maybe it is your usual Chinese place. Dun dun dun.
Five Courses of Bourbon and Donuts
Eating five donuts for dinner would be totally crazy. Unless they came in flavors like rocky road and butterscotch-toffee, and you ate them alongside five good bourbons at BLD. Then it’d just be a display of good sense.
Camping with Psychopaths
Sure, you could unwind at the beach this weekend. Or spend a night camping in the haunted old Griffith Park zoo, embarking on an all-night scavenger hunt while a cast of maniacs pursues you through the Great Horror Campout’s river of blood. Gotta be warmer than the ocean.
At the Races, It’s Whiskey by a Head
California Chrome might win Saturday’s Belmont Stakes. But you still believe whiskey’s got a fighting shot. The viewing party in Santa Anita’s Chandelier Room features food and wine with help from some Mozza alums and... wait, coming from behind, it’s whiskey cocktails from a Harvard & Stone vet.
