Your Perks: 1) Tin after tin of delicious, sustainably sourced Italian caviar. Commence the dinner partying. 2) Pens and watches that are better than all other pens and watches because they’re Versace. 3) Really comfortable workout clothes. Actual working out optional.
Things to do for May 28, 2015
Negronis, Lamb Burgers and Polo
Whole lotta weekend going on.
Valley Imbibement, Much Improved
Random person: Man, the Valley has no good cocktails.
You: Oh, you didn’t know that North Hollywood has a new Fat Dog with drinks from Matt Biancaniello, and that Little Toni’s now has Bar Toni’s with barrel-aged Negronis from Aidan Demarest.
Random person: I am deeply ashamed and stand corrected.
Akasha Does Indian Food
Indian food. That usually just means Indian food. No gin-and-holy-basil-bitters cocktails. No lamb burgers and masala wings. No Akasha Richmond, no Culver Boulevard patios, no Sāmbār. You can’t help it. Sometimes you naturally take part in unusual things.
A New Downtown Date Spot
Your date would like foie gras and champagne. You’re cool with fried chicken and beer. You two are so right for Osso, a nice new spot in Downtown that sanctions menu space for both Slim Jims and hamachi crudo with pho broth. As the great sage Paula Abdul once said, opposites attract.
A Fine Day for Mallets and Horses
Saturday is British Polo Day. Just a reminder to visit Will Rogers State Park and watch some fellows on horses swing mallets at balls. The whole shebang is hosted by Lord Frederick Windsor. Your third-favorite member of the royal family.
A Bigger Chop Daddy’s in Culver City
Pork. A source should always be in reach. Chop Daddy’s got Culver City covered at its much bigger outpost opening Monday. There you’ll encounter it in the form of pork belly and pulled-pork sandwiches and racks of ribs. We assume you’re both acquainted.
