A WINKLE IN TIME

Your Pappy Van Winkle Hookup

Tonight, the Blind Donkey in Pasadena is getting a generous shipment of 15- to 23-year-old Pappy Van Winkle Family Reserve. And they’re pouring one-ounce shots if you want to sample a few. “If.” Ha. Sometimes “if” is a funny word.

Friday
Choose Your Own Lloyd Wright Adventure
TRUE HOLLYHOCK STORY

Choose Your Own Lloyd Wright Adventure

Nice, you’re getting 24 hours to tour Frank Lloyd Wright’s newly restored Hollyhock House, which is reopening this weekend for the first time since 2012. Unless you already had 4am plans.

ALOHA STATE

A-Frame’s Hawaiian Now

Big changes at A-Frame. Well, the frame is still A. But starting tomorrow, it’ll be filled with longboards, tiki gods and pineapples. Yeah, it’s a Hawaiian restaurant now, with loco moco, three daily pokes and egg-white piña coladas with a crushed-peanut garnish. The churros remain. Can’t mess with churros.

Rallying Is So Hot
THIS IS YOUR PONG

Rallying Is So Hot

A little sweat. Some intense back and forth with your partner. It’s what Valentine’s Day should be all about. Yup, SPiN Standard at the Standard is doing a big doubles ping-pong tournament on Saturday. Rally’s on.
