The Perks of summer: 1) $150 gets you $200 toward vintage swim trunks, T-shirts, polos and more from Unionmade. 2) 25% off sunglasses that float designed by surfers in the Caribbean (naturally). 3) A no-electricity-required bamboo amplifier for your smartphone. Bring it wherever summer takes you...
Things to do for June 12, 2014
Nudity, Oceanside Steak and Fast Cars
Your weekend’s expanding its brand.
Bring a Date to Eatz Tonight
You’re already a skilled bacon chef. But on the off chance you need to brush up on your bacon tempura and chocolate-dipped bacon skills, head to Eatz—they’ve got a class involving five bacon courses and wine. Luckily, there will be a test on this.
A Glass Steakhouse over the Sea
Mastro’s is usually astute in anticipating your Friday night steakhouse-date needs, which just so happen to require crab-stuffed mushrooms, oysters and live Maine lobster in a gleaming new glass house perched right over the Pacific Ocean. They really got it right this week.
You Must Yield to the Pantsless
You’re sitting with friends over a bleary-eyed brunch at Brite Spot when several dozen people of various shapes and sizes start riding by on bikes without their clothing on. Yup, they’re just participants in Saturday’s World Naked Bike Ride. Turns out, you’re still naked if you’re wearing a helmet.
Some of These Cars Might Have Agents
Rodeo Drive doesn’t do normal car shows. It does 100-year-old car shows with celebrity cars, like the Beverly Hillbillies wagon and some sporty, shiny things from Entourage. The Concours D’Elegance is back, and the kicking of tires is not encouraged.
Poolside Cinema at Mr. C
Your ideal summer movie generally has breathtaking sun-dappled scenery, glamorous stars and maybe an identity-stealing sociopath. Enter Mr. C’s new poolside summer film series, which features The Talented Mr. Ripley, pizza and Italian beers this Tuesday. The beer is really a brave artistic choice.
