Wear Your Ugliest to Bar Marmont
SWEATIN’ TO THE UGLIES

Wear Your Ugliest to Bar Marmont

Tonight will be like any other at Bar Marmont. There will be oysters. There will be a DJ. There will be a lot of people in ugly sweaters and a croquembouche tree filled with eggnog. Nothing out of the ordinary there.

Dec 18, 6pm-2am, Bar Marmont, 8171 W Sunset Blvd, 323-650-0575

A Scent-Pairing Dinner. Really.
SMELL TEST

A Scent-Pairing Dinner. Really.

The effect of smell on taste is... complicated. Probably. So just go to Castle Gourmet’s four-course scent-pairing dinner. They’ll serve you things like walnut pesto risotto and bourbon caramel pie... paired with scented spoons and strips. Hopefully one of them is bourbon.

Friday
Smoked-Meat Sandwiches Are Served
THANK YOU FOR SMOKING

Smoked-Meat Sandwiches Are Served

Congratulations. Your daily odds of having Barrel & Ashes’ barbecue just doubled. Barrel & Ashes has brought their burgers and smoked brisket, fried chicken and tri-tip sandwiches into the lunching hours, whether they wanted to be there or not. But they did. Want to.

Quick, hand over your pants. No, not those. Your old ones. See, Buck Mason is looking to donate 250 pairs to the LA Mission. And will give you $25 off a pair of their new jeans or chinos in exchange. So come on. Hand ’em over.

Through Dec 31, Buck Mason, 580 Venice Blvd, 888-944-5374

HERE’S THE HITCH
