The Weekender

Jambalaya, 80 Cheeses and a Mad Men Musical

And the home... of the... weekend.

Friday
A New Orleans–ish Lunch, Downtown
PROPER FORM

A New Orleans–ish Lunch, Downtown

There’s a counter inside Preux & Proper. You can step up to it when the sun’s still out now, if you want a muffuletta, some fried chicken or jambalaya to get you through that fraught series of moments when Downtown people consider what to consume for lunch.

MR. TEA

This Tea Got Lost in Champagne

On your calendar, you probably have plans for a spot of high tea in Beverly Hills. “Don’t.” “Don’t” was the word that should’ve been between “probably” and “have plans.” Anyway, Livello is doing that but with booze in everything. Tea-infused champagne drinks, cognac brownies, salmon on fernet pumpernickel. So... maybe tea.

Daily, 11am-4pm, $75, Livello at L’Ermitage, 9291 Burton Way, Beverly Hills, reserve at least 72 hours in advance at 310-860-8660

Saturday
Cheesemongers Has Plenty of Cheese
SAY... MONGERS

Cheesemongers Has Plenty of Cheese

If you’re working on some sort of date that requires some sort of basket that requires some sort of cheese inside, this new Cheesemongers place has 80 kinds. And also prosciutto, speck and pâté. And also olives and chocolate. And crackers, but what kind of ridiculous cheese place wouldn’t have crackers.

Oh, Hey, Are You Going to the Desert?
GOLD STANDARD

Oh, Hey, Are You Going to the Desert?

Sure, it’s getting completely out of hand, this whole Coachella thing. But so long as you’re strapped in for the ride into darkness, you should know that the Ace’s usual pile of blowouts involves a Do-Over, and pop-ups from Amoeba and Moon Juice. That’s a juice place, not a person.

Tuesday
The Part About the Mad Men Musical
BREAKING MAD

The Part About the Mad Men Musical

If you’re tired of all this Mad Men talk, change the conversation—maybe to something about UCB’s Mad Men: The Musical, which exists Tuesday. And yes, there’s a group number called “Change the Conversation.” Keep being UCB, UCB. Thanks.
