Your Perks: 1) Dinner, cocktails and a gripping live show in a Hollywood speakeasy. Yes, you’ll need a password to get in. 2) Iconic street art from the graffiti artist known as Banksy. Maybe you’ve heard of him. 3) Limited-edition bikes made right here in California. Ride like the wind...
Things to do for August 21, 2014
Rare Whiskey and a 60-Foot Rubber Duck
Somebody better remember to thank the weekend.
The Pikey’s Surplus of Vintage Whiskey
You’ve been pondering setting up a whiskey preservation society. First step: ensuring the livelihood of the Pikey’s new vintage whiskey menus—full of stuff like 129-proof ’83 Glen Mhor, ’42 Catto’s and shots from extinct distilleries.

Oh, Just a 1,300-Pound Rubber Duck
Life doesn’t offer you many opportunities to see a 60-foot rubber duck. Maybe just this one—it’s part of the Port of LA’s Tall Ships Festival on Saturday. Guess they have a loose definition of the word “ships.” (Bonus punch line: you’re going to need a bigger bath.)
Endless Surf Threads, on Sale
All kinds of surfy apparel will be on sale in Downtown this Saturday. Wittmore-curated tees, Gant Rugger flannels and Wellen trunks at 50% to 80% off. Call it formal beachwear.
Finding Your Inner Michelada Artist
Breaking news in michelada upgrades: Fifty Seven is here to assist. It’s offering build-your-own michelada kits for two at its new weekend brunch. So you can spend the morning tinkering with different ratios of Worcestershire to tomato juice. You know. Chemistry.
Five Downtown Bars. One Night. Go.
Big Downtown bar crawl Saturday. Start with something ginny and a bite at Beelman’s Pub. Move on for another featured cocktail and dish at Library Bar. Then another drink-and-bite at three more nearby bars before the only appropriate grand finale: a ’90s dance party at King Eddy’s. Ah, closure.
