Things to do for June 27, 2014

The Weekender

Lobster Rolls, Swim Trunks and Tea Beer

More than meets the weekend.

Friday
Up to Half Off Some Surf Essentials
WITT PROTECTION PROGRAM

Up to Half Off Some Surf Essentials

Technically, June gloom can only exist for three more days. It’s the law or something. Then you better have your M. Nii tank tops, Folk short-sleeve button-downs and Onia trunks at the ready. Wittmore’s here to help with up to 50% off that stuff. They understand how the law works.

Saturday
This Art Thing Smells Like a Winner
JUST SAY NOSE

This Art Thing Smells Like a Winner

You typically let your eyes do the work at museums. Now it’s your nose’s time to shine. Just tell Brian Goeltzenleuchter your zip code, and he’ll provide you with a scent meant to capture your neighborhood. Then you’ll wander around an exhibit about color. Blue will still smell blue. Probably.

Jun 28, 11am-6pm, Sillage at SMMoA, 2525 Michigan Ave #G1, Santa Monica, 310-586-6488

Your Source for Tea Beer
BREW BELIEVER

Your Source for Tea Beer

There’s a new brewery in Highland Park. It’s called Highland Park Brewery. Hit the Hermosillo on Saturday for the brewery’s opening party and you’ll get pork belly sliders, cheese and tasters of stuff like smoked-Chinese-tea beer and black coffee beer. You always take your coffee beer black.

Sunday
A Sunny New Blue Plate Oysterette
CHOWDER KEG

A Sunny New Blue Plate Oysterette

You promised your date lobster rolls and oysters in West Hollywood on Sunday—only to find half the 90046 crowding Connie & Ted’s, and the other half at Son of a Gun. No problem. Change course to the 3rd Street–adjacent patio at Blue Plate Oysterette’s brand-new digs. Close call.

Tavern’s Got So Much Shrimp and Grits
TRUE GRITS

Tavern’s Got So Much Shrimp and Grits

Brentwood and South Carolina really aren’t so different. At least not when Tavern breaks out a four-course Low Country feast with shrimp and grits, a crawfish and crab leg boil, and blueberry cobbler. The cobbler clinches it.

Jun 29, 3-9pm, Tavern, 11648 San Vicente Blvd, Brentwood, 310-806-6464
