Your Perks: 1) Button-ups in so many summer colors and styles, it’ll make your head spin. In a good way. 2) Ultra-insulated flasks, koozies, wedge-shaped ice molds... Basically a bunch of things to keep your beverages chilled. Very important. 3) A contraption that turns alcohol into gas. Seeing is believing.
Things to do for June 11, 2015
New Beer, Garden Patios and Fancy Toast
You’ll probably just binge-weekend the whole thing.
A Hollywood Garden Grows
It’s almost summer. When a person’s thoughts turn to patios and drinking alcohol on them. Right on season, here’s Le Jardin, a new outdoor lounge in Hollywood that has a nice olive-tree-to-Bellini-to-guy-strumming-acoustic-guitar ratio. It’s an exciting stage in every person’s life.
Coolhaus, Meet Doritos
You might think it’s not ice cream sandwich weather out there. Then you might laugh at yourself for such a thought. Coolhaus is now constructing them with white cheddar popcorn ice cream full of Dorito shards. And a salted vanilla bean packed with shoestring fries. The old ways are dead.
Double the Downtown Breweries
Two new Downtown breweries launch this weekend:
1) Mumford Brewing exists, and you can try their beers in person at their tasting room.
2) For now, you’ll find Boomtown Brewery’s creations like B-Side red stout at places like Blue Palms and Covell. And they’ll have a tasting room soon, too. Wouldn’t want to be shown up by Mumford.
A Dentist Made You Toast
Toast. You can make that at home. But it’d be more fun to call your brunch support network. Tell them there’s this dentist-cum-chef loading toasts with things like edible soil, herbed burrata and pickled chard in the alley behind Daily Dose. You rarely approach edible soil at home.
Dad’s Day Pregaming
Two ways to shop for Dad this week: in a blind panic, you could comb LA for cashmere socks. Or... stroll into Rotelli Cyclery’s Sunday pop-up for a gratis beer, a haircut and Pie Hole pie while browsing Imperial Barber’s grooming tackle and This Is Ground’s leather goods. Your call.
