Things to do for September 11, 2014
Champagne, BLTs and a Hot Tub Cadillac
Are you going to upgrade your weekend?
Make Way for the ’69 Cadillac Hot Tub
Kickstarter is organizing a film festival in Griffith Park tomorrow. You’ll find crowdfunded documentaries, shorts and animated movies. You’ll also find Reubens and a hot-tub-equipped ’69 Cadillac. So, yes, they thought of everything.
Abbot Kinney Gets Two Good New Shops
That slight offshore breeze you feel? Good enough reason to get a new flannel at Rag & Bone’s Abbot Kinney shop, opening Friday. They’ve got a landscaped patio in back, so maybe you’ll want some shades from Warby Parker’s new shop just up the street, opening Saturday. That worked out.
An Ice Cream Truck... and a BLT Truck
Remember the last time food trucks got you pumped? All right. Well, just focus on the now. Marcona is debuting a BLT truck, and Nitropod is finally hitting the streets on Saturday with liquid nitrogen flash-frozen ice cream. Feels good, right?
Good Drinks and Pig’s-Ear Fries
Valley friends. You have a few of those. And Monday, you’ll have a casual new spot from the Tipple & Brine crew to meet them at. Expect 20 beers on tap, tequila-habanero cocktails from a Honeycut vet, fried chicken and pig’s-ear fries. Oh, sure, that old lineup.
These Cocktails Have No Bottom
The Church Key’s got a nice opposite-of-Monday-Night-Football situation brewing. It involves you, a date and a champagne cart bringing bottomless drinks like Kir Royales and Bellinis for $17. Whoops, did we say the opposite of Monday Night Football... we meant, no, yeah, the opposite of Monday Night Football.
