The Weekender

Happy Oscar Weekend. Have Some Bao.

The weekend is quite comfortable with its dark horse status.

Friday
Got Plans for Lunch Tomorrow?
AEST-BOUND AND DOWN

Got Plans for Lunch Tomorrow?

Sure, you have lots of burritos and burgers to choose from when you need a quick lunch in Santa Monica. But thus far, your shishito-ricotta avocado toast and sweet-and-sour brussels sprouts options have been too few. Enter Aestus. Really. You have to enter Aestus to eat those things.

Tue-Fri, 11:30am-2pm, Aestus, 507 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, 424-268-4433

Saturday
See Turkish Leather Shoes, Have Drink
THE LEATHER CHANNEL

See Turkish Leather Shoes, Have Drink

Sabah would like to see you at RTH on Saturday. They’d like to offer you a drink while you consider your own pair of their handmade-to-order Turkish leather slip-ons. They’ll be hanging out there for a few months, and at no point will you be pressured to buy a rug.

Feb 21, 1-5pm, Sabah Salon open house at RTH, 529 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-289-7911

Get Your Smoked-Bacon Bao Here
TET TALKS

Get Your Smoked-Bacon Bao Here

How East Borough is celebrating Saturday’s Vietnamese Tet Festival: they’ve got a bunch of bao buns for you, filled with stuff like smoked bacon and quail egg, baby octopus, and hanger steak with crab butter. Sounds like they’re celebrating properly.

Feb 21, 5:30-11pm, East Borough, 9810 Washington Blvd, Culver City, 310-596-8266

A Wide-Eyed Blonde Comes to Hollywood
LEPORE SOME SUGAR

A Wide-Eyed Blonde Comes to Hollywood

Lots of New Yorkers around this weekend. One’s especially hard to miss: why, yes, that is Amanda Lepore going wild at the Golden Box on Saturday. You think she wanted to stay in that weather?

Monday
Brentwood Gets Alfred Coffee Cones
CONE HEADS

Brentwood Gets Alfred Coffee Cones

February 23, 2015. To always be remembered as the day Brentwood productivity dramatically increased after the introduction of Alfred Coffee’s espressos, draft kombucha and chocolate waffle coffee cones on San Vicente. At least by that one guy with the laptop.
