Your Perks: 1) A two-year digital subscription to Playboy and access to all the back issues. So, everything. 2) Boxing gloves signed by Pacquiao and Mayweather. Apparently they have a big fight coming up or something. 3) A whole spring’s worth of button-ups. Bring on the alfresco brunches.
Things to do for March 26, 2015
Fried Chicken, Ramen and Pop-Up Jeans
Pretty weekend, walking down the street.
New Jeans in an Old Laundromat
There’s this old laundromat in Silver Lake. Inside: a pop-up where you can get fitted for a custom pair of nice new jeans made by a Rag & Bone vet. Then you can track every step of their production until they reach you. Somewhere other than the laundromat.
Good Fried-Chicken News to Know About
If you don’t have a fried-chicken thing on Thursday nights, the Churchill’s got a strategy for you. It involves helpings of hickory-smoked fried chicken, gruyère mashed potatoes and cheddar-jalapeño biscuits from their Virginia-raised chef. And you. If you don’t have a thing.
Apolis at 70% Off, and Other Things
Friday: Head Downtown for up to 70% off useful summer Apolis stuff like trunks and beach
blankets. Summer being used loosely, of course.
Saturday: On Robertson, you’ll find bands, food trucks and good sales at places like the Kooples, Ted Baker and Vince.
Also on Saturday: See below.
Beef vs. Pork. It’s So On.
Former Fig chef Ray Garcia is giving you a sneak look into his new place, Broken Spanish, in the old Rivera space. He’s luring you in with a multicourse dinner pitting beef dishes against pork dishes. You’ve wanted to see that fight go down for a while now.
A Downtown Patio and Westside Ramen
That matter of where to take your Downtown vegan. No longer a matter. Starting Sunday, you’ll just hit Café Gratitude’s new outpost for raw enchiladas. And then... you can make up for it with porky ramen on Tuesday, when Jinya comes to Main Street Santa Monica. Balance restored.
