A funky new brick-walled lounge full of ’80s video games opens Friday. There will be Dig Dug, Pac-Mans Junior through Super, cocktails and Cap’n Crunch fried chicken. You should be able to get a high score in one of those.

Some New Waffle Cone Tech

Fried chicken and waffle cones. Those exist now. That’s all.
...
Oh, you’re interested? Well, you’ll find them being served Saturday night at Carb & Nation, a food new truck from two Church & State vets setting up in Glassell Park. And yes, fried chicken. In a waffle cone.

Your New Cheeseburger Hub

Joan’s on Third is now open in Studio City. And Monday, it unleashes its secret weapon: cheeseburgers. They won’t be on the menu. But they will be served weekdays after 3pm. So now’s the time to book that “dentist appointment” that gets you out of work early.
