Your Perks: 1) A cutting-edge scale that measures your body mass index, fat ratio, muscle mass... and, oh, weight. 2) A pocket-friendly phone battery charger. Stocking-size, we might add. 3) All the Rolex and Cartier watches a person could want. In gifting terms, the showstopper.
Things to do for November 28, 2014
Cookie Dough, Spaceships and White Truffles
Take 30% Off Wittmore, from Your Couch
Sure, you could go to Wittmore today. But... you can get 30% off regular- and sale-priced clothes on Wittmore’s website while watching the game. Things you’ll need for a 76-degree December on the beach, like Oliver Spencer button-downs and chinos. Yeah. Black Friday is so tough.
Black Vodka, Black Pasta and Black Cod
Some people take Black Friday super literally. Like Hostaria del Piccolo, which is offering an all-black tasting menu with black kale soup, black cod, black tagliatelle with black tiger shrimp and a black vodka cocktail topped with black truffle caviar at both locations. That’s a lot of black.
Not Quite How 2001 Happened, But...
You thought it was tricky helping relatives stream a movie last night. That’s nothing compared to the computer issues that arise in Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odyssey. Catch it tonight at the Egyptian. Then be thankful for your home electronics.
Instead of More Leftover Pie...
Two solid alternatives to more leftovers:
1) Sweet Rose Creamery. They’ve got limited quantities of butternut squash sage brittle ice cream and spiced pumpkin ice cream pies.
2) Edoughble. It’s cookie dough you just... eat. They’re selling only 200 each of their mint chocolate and holiday spiced flavors.
Truffles on Just About Everything
If you must venture anywhere near the Westfield Century City this weekend, you should know about Obicà’s safe haven of Negronis and white truffles—they’re putting those truffles on everything from beef tartare and pizza to poached eggs. You can probably come back another time for the stores.
