Pizza from the Golden State Guys

First the Golden State guys made you burgers. Then barbecue at Bludso’s and Cofax’s breakfast burritos. Then they realized you might be going to other people for pizza. So now they’re offering you slices, pies and garlic knots at Prime Pizza. They like having you around, that’s all.

Now soft-open, Prime Pizza, 446 N Fairfax Ave, 323-852-1188

The Shoe Fits. Really.
TO THE LEFT, TO THE LEFT

The Shoe Fits. Really.

Your near future is full of holiday parties. Ones in which you’ll be wearing the new leather oxfords you created with the 3D foot scanner at the Left Shoe Company’s Beverly Hills pop-up—which also has bespoke Élevée suits and Refined Hardware watches happening. See, 3D is the future.

Saturday
True Tequila-and-Pickle-Juice Artistry
PICKLING UP THE PIECES

True Tequila-and-Pickle-Juice Artistry

Gracias Madre believes in your creative potential. So much so that they’re trusting you to oversee your own deconstructed picklebacks. You’ll pick tequila, mezcal or sotol and choose from pickled cucumbers, spicy lavender carrots or bourbon-barrel jalapeños, which arrive with a tiny vial of their own juice. Go crazy.

Available now, $15, Gracias Madre, 8905 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, 323-978-2170

Sunday
A Fancy Junk Food Thing at Huckleberry
JUNK IN LOVE

A Fancy Junk Food Thing at Huckleberry

Some might call Cool Ranch gorditas and fried-bologna sandwiches “junk food.” Some others might go to Huckleberry on Sunday for their fancy junk food dinner, with chefs like Marcel Vigneron and Jeremy Fox. Those people might then consider a different term. Or not.
