Your Perks: 1) Up to 69% off Maceoo polos, blazers and button-downs. The French seem to be fond of them. 2) A revitalizing juice cleanse, because sometimes you’ve got to balance the bad with the good. 3) The workout clothes they’d use to exercise in space. Houston, we have a... high-performance shirt.
Things to do for February 12, 2015
Pappy, Ping-Pong and Loco Moco
Weekend is a battlefield.
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.
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.
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.
Here’s Some Ways to Look and Feel Good
Friday: Hang out for tacos and tequila at Stag in Venice. Pick up a new shirt from beachy
brand Faherty’s in-store pop-up.
Saturday: Swing by Silver Lake’s Shinola for a gratis haircut and shave from Fellow Barber.
Later Saturday: You probably have plans. And you’ll look good. You’ll look real good.
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.
