About Paul Newman’s Racing Habits

You know Paul Newman. He’s that celebrated race car driver who racked up four national championships in his 35-year career. Yeah, well, they made a movie about that guy and it’s debuting tonight at El Capitan Theatre with an after-party. Advance word is he’s very convincing in his role.

RED STATE

Redbird’s Double Burger Is Your Lunch

Redbird. What a place. It could really only be better if Neal Fraser suddenly dropped double burgers, Thai Dungeness crab soup and pork belly posole on your Downtown lunch prospects. This just in: better days have come to Redbird.

Now open for lunch Tue-Fri, 11:30am-1:30pm, Redbird, 114 E 2nd St, Downtown, 213-788-1191, see the menu

A Fine Year for Sloppy Joes

Friday night at Go Get Em Tiger: A pop-up wine dinner with upscale “lunch lady” offerings like sloppy joes and nachos.
Saturday night at Komodo Venice: You’ll get two types of fried chicken with miso-bacon corn and bottomless mac and cheese from Komodo’s chef and Boston’s Samuel Monsour.
Sunday morning: Breakfast at your leisure.

It’s Called Taco Madness, So...
TO SHELL AND BACK

It’s Called Taco Madness, So...

If you’re feeling rudderless on the taco front lately, Taco Madness at Villains Tavern could catch you up. You’ll find eight tortilla virtuosi like Guerrilla Tacos and Mariscos Jalisco, along with beer, cocktails and live painting. Then you can start a band called Tortilla Virtuosi.

Mondays: Now Porkier
THINK PIG

Mondays: Now Porkier

Ha, Terrine acts like it has you all figured out. It’s doing weekly Monday menus that are all about porchetta, sausages and platters of suckling pig. Accompanied by another menu of Irish whiskey cocktails. They must have stalked you on Instagram or something.

Mondays, 5:30-11pm, Terrine, 8265 Beverly Blvd, 323-746-5130
