Your Perks: 1) A high-tech thermos that’ll keep your rosé, craft brew or margarita chilled for up to 25 hours. 2) A secret dinner party in East LA, with 10 kinds of French wine. 3) Exquisitely designed sunglasses that are carved from a single block of wood. How beach-appropriate.
Things to do for July 24, 2014
Wall Street Wolves, Dom and Jalapeño Mac
#1 on Forbes’s “Top-Earning Weekends” list.
Mac and Cheese for Lunch at the Well
Maybe you end up at the Well tonight, and maybe you stay out for a round or two later than intended. There’s only one thing to do tomorrow: go back to the Well. They’re doing lunch now, with short rib sliders and jalapeño mac and cheese. Classic post-Well stuff.
Poolside Tequila Alert
The Mondrian has this insane notion that you’d want to spend a Saturday afternoon tasting tequila and a bunch of tacos while surrounded by really, really good-looking people at Sayulita’s pool. You better go. Just to check up on their mental health.
The Wolf of Exposition Park
Q: “Sell me this pen.”
A: “I mean, it’s a great pen. Look at it.”
Q: “Sell me the Wolf of Wall Street screening at Exposition Park on Saturday.”
A: “Well, it’s your chance to catch a modern Scorsese epic outside, with food trucks.”
A Leisurely Brunch. With Endless Dom.
It’s really important that you save money to reach your long-term goals. But is it more important than spending $295 on one bottomless, two-and-a-half-hour Dom Pérignon Sunday brunch at Cast & Plow? Depends on whether your long-term goals include Canadian bacon.
BierBeisl Goes Thai, Kind Of
Two things often keep you up at night: whether a turducken burrito would be satisfying and what Thai-Austrian food would taste like. Monday, you can settle the second thing over pork belly green papaya salad at BierBeisl’s five-course pop-up at Si Laa Thai. Surely you can settle the first thing yourself.
