Your Perks: 1) A physical copy of the first Playboy and digital access to every issue of Playboy ever published. See, history can be sexy. 2) A box of tasting whiskeys from distilleries all around the world. 3) A nearly indestructible leather bag by way of Great Britain.
Things to do for December 12, 2014
Poutine, Champagne and Don Corleone
The unbelievable true weekend.
A New Cradle of Poutine
L’Assiette is ready to show its range. So it’s introducing a new late-night menu that goes beyond steak frites... and into sous-vide-steak sandwiches and roasted-goat-cheese poutine. Soon, it will want to direct.
Some Important New Ice Creams Exist
Plan for a cold, wet Saturday: A fire. Netflix. Curling up. Mincemeat ice cream from Salt
& Straw. It’s one of their... interesting new flavors.
Plan for a slightly drier Sunday: Beverly Hills gift-browsing, an excuse to hit Ice Cream Lab for horchata/Teddy Graham scoops. More... interesting new flavors.
The Godfather, Back on the Big Screen
It’s a time-honored tale about a generous fat man fulfilling people’s every request. No, not Santa. Don Corleone, who you’ll catch on the Million Dollar Theatre’s big screen in The Godfather tomorrow. He has a much better suit.
A Bison Burger Truck in Hollywood
Generally, huge trucks idling at night in random Hollywood alleys should remain unapproached. One exception: this fellow inside Bison Burger—he’s selling elk, wild boar and bison burgers across from Grandpa Johnson’s. There’s no other real exception.
A Holiday Party with L&E and Lou
On the extreme off chance you don’t have enough celebratory champagne for the weeks ahead, visit Lou Amdur’s wine shop on Sunday. L&E Oyster Bar will be there shucking bivalves, while Lou pours three types of bubbly for you to taste. Situation: normal.
