Your Perks: 1) Waxed-canvas bags that can handle whatever you throw at them this winter. 2) A truly special bottle of Johnnie Walker Blue. It’s whiskey to be celebrated. Or sipped judiciously. 3) A fitted button-down from Jared Lang. You’ve never looked better.
Things to do for January 22, 2015
Star Wars Burlesque, Downtown Snow and Foie Burgers
The weekend loves your mom’s cookies.
Foie + Brisket = This
The last two years, no one was slathering your barbecue brisket sandwiches in foie gras. But you stayed strong. And now Chop Daddy (no relation) is making up for lost time with the Foie Daddy (and... no relation).
Some Downtown Snow with Your Pints
Friday’s forecast at Angel City: snow. Angel City’s making that happen. Yes, snow.
Also, The Goonies, live music and beer.
Sunday’s forecast at the similarly beery Bock Fest: just calls for... beer. And now, back to your regularly scheduled weekending.
Star Wars Burlesque. It’s Back.
Perhaps you’ve got this thing for Princess Leia. Maybe C-3PO’s accent really does it for you. Either way, your more lurid Jedi-related fantasies might come true at Dragonfly tomorrow, where there’s a Star Wars–themed burlesque show going down. No matter what, it’ll be better than Attack of the Clones.
A Westside Grilled Cheese Pop-Up
Eric Greenspan’s got this pretty out-there theory that you may want one of his short rib grilled cheeses at the Westfield Century City. So he’s starting a pop-up there with cheesy sandwiches and the occasional TV-featured latke. Now he just needs some test subjects.
Your Week of Imbibing Starts Here
The Golden State of Cocktails, that esteemed week dedicated to the pleasurable intricacies of booze, kicks off Monday with fried chicken, DJs and BBQ-friendly cocktails at Good Times at Davey Wayne’s. Also known as the Day the Resolutions Died.
