Your Perks: 1) Award-winning Russian black osetra caviar that was banned for the last 10 years. 2) Leather texting gloves that work with your phone in the cold. Finally. 3) A slim, lightweight portable phone charger so you never have to fight over outlets while traveling. Or at your family’s house during the holidays.
Things to do for November 13, 2014
Bare Skin, Then Black-Tie Boxing, Then Hyde for Brunch
Highway to the weekend zone.
Art Date Alert: This Is Reverie
You can expect to see palm trees and a fair amount of skin. It’s true we could be talking about your average drive down La Cienega, but in this case we’re talking about the opening night of Reverie, which involves three artists, Juliette Lewis, skin and palm trees. On La Cienega.
Like Pho, But a Burrito. A Phorrito.
phorrito noun \ˈfuh-ree-toe\: like pho, but a burrito, with thinly sliced ribeye, lime, bean sprouts, jalapeño, hoisin sauce, sriracha, pho noodles and all that, now here for your pho-ish lunch needs at both Komodo outposts. Use it in a sentence, if you like.
Three Updates About the State of Beer
Three things about that new Santa Monica brewery...
1) It exists. It’s called Santa Monica Brew Works.
2) They’re at Del Frisco’s tonight, doing a tap takeover with gratis apps, $8 flights and a first taste of their new one: PCH.
3) You should go.
Tuxes and Boxing Gloves at LAAC
Here it is again. Another typical Friday night. Have to make a quick stop at the black-tie whiskey tasting and boxing match, which involves a pretty serious USC-UCLA rivalry. Sooner or later, you’re going to have to find something else to do besides black-tie boxing matches on Fridays.
You can make the plan now, or you can make the plan Saturday night around 2:30am. Either way, the plan involving you coming to Hyde’s new Sunday brunch for quinoa and poached eggs, fried chicken sliders and Guinness Bloody Marys... it’ll really end up feeling like good planning.
