Rosa Mexicano’s Weird New Ice Creams
ICE AGE

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.

Available through Aug 24, Rosa Mexicano, 800 W Olympic Blvd, 213-746-0001

Oh, Hey, It’s Aether’s First Sale Ever
YOU’RE AETHER IN OR YOU’RE OUT

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?

Sale in-store and online through Aug 3 (store closed Aug 2-3), AETHERla, 6100 Melrose Ave (entrance on Seward), 323-785-0700

Saturday
So Much Bacon and Beer on a Boat
THINK BIG

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
ALWAYS SO TASTEFUL

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.

How: Again, pretty much your call.

Monday
Heads Up That Bucato Does Lunch Now
TWEET VENGEANCE

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.

Mon-Sat starting Aug 4, 11:30am-2:30pm, Bucato, 3280 Helms Ave, Culver City, 310-876-0286
