Your Perks: 1) Tom Ford sunglasses at half off. What? How? Don’t you worry your pretty little head. 2) A flying palm-size HD-camera drone. Huge for your Vine game. 3) A vintage Rolex. A vintage Omega Seamaster 120. A vintage Cartier watch. A vintage... well, you get the idea.
Things to do for April 10, 2015
Jambalaya, 80 Cheeses and a Mad Men Musical
And the home... of the... weekend.
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.
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.
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?
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.
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.
