Your Perks: 1) Learn to drive a Formula 1–style race car. From a former Formula 1 driver. Really. 2) A gratis shave at Duncan Quinn just for getting yourself a handsome accessory. 3) A rugged leather jacket that’ll make you look cool. And rugged. But you already knew that.
Things to do for November 20, 2014
Golden Disco Balls, Skewers and Turducken Dogs
What’s wrong with the weekend being sexy?
Rum Punching in Chinatown
By now, you know people referencing “General Lee” might mean:
A) The Duke boys’ Dodge Charger.
B) A bearded commander of the Confederacy.
C) A newly revamped, sexy Chinatown bar with B-movie posters, some bamboo walls and rum punch.
D) All of the above. Yeah. D sounds right.
40% Off Some Good Gant Stuff
Wow, feel that? It’s actually kind of chilly out there. Time to stop by either Gant shop. They’ve got 40% off nice items like a salt-and-pepper blazer, cable-knit sweater and double-breasted wool spectator coat. So you can finally spectate correctly.
An NYC Dance Party, Circa 1980
The dude behind Genesis is opening a new place called Golden Box tomorrow. It’s a tribute to licentious 1980s New York, with Interview magazine covering the floors, golden disco balls and a girl on a swing shooting confetti. How those went out of style, you’ll never know.
Finally, Handheld Turducken
Good news: Dog Haus is opening a new Burbank location. Best news: they also sell a seasonal turducken dog made of turkey, chicken and duck with whiskey-soaked cranberries. Guess we know what you’re bringing to Thanksgiving... probably something else. But still.
Centeno Will Skewer That
Josef Centeno found some free time between making puffy tacos and burgers and inventing new bacos. So he’s using it to serve you a prix fixe pile of indulgent Japanese-Italian skewers and Japanese beer for two nights at Orsa & Winston. Guess he doesn’t just watch Netflix.
