Things to do for July 31, 2014
Wine, Shorts and... Bacon on a Boat
<em>Weekend 2: The Second One</em>
Rosa Mexicano’s Weird New Ice Creams
Funny how there’s no wrong place for avocado. Guac: yes. Omelets: sure. Ice cream... um, okay. Rosa Mexicano has decided your August might be improved with a bunch of curious Mexican ice creams, so, yeah. Avocado. Or vanilla with chocolate mole, which arrives on apple empanadas. Great arrival.
Oh, Hey, It’s Aether’s First Sale Ever
If you happen to need a new swimsuit—just throwing it out there, Aether’s never really had a public sale before, and now they’re having one, and the nice trunks you see in the immediate vicinity of these words are among the 20%-off stuff. Also, coats. Maybe you’re traveling?
So Much Bacon and Beer on a Boat
Not all boats are filled with the savory commingling scents of 40-plus bacon dishes like the Donut Bar’s maple bacon donuts. Not all boats have 40-plus beers to wash those things down. Not all boats are The Queen Mary. Not all days are this Saturday. This got deep.
Here’s a Charming Wine Tasting Room
Who: You plus date.
What: Flights and bottles from Malibu Family Wines, with spiced nuts and cheeses.
Where: A couple of armchairs in the inviting new tasting room at the Four Seasons in Westlake Village.
When: Your call. But Saturday feels right.
Why: See “what” above.
How: Again, pretty much your call.
Heads Up That Bucato Does Lunch Now
One thing you still can’t do at Bucato: pull out your phone and tweet a photo of your pasta. Seriously, you really can’t do that here. One thing you finally can do now: go here for lunch. Assuming you can deal with having your phone off during lunch.
