Things to do for June 18, 2015

The Weekender

Al Pastor Cocktails, Whiskey Exhibits and Summer Shorts

Who weekended it better?

Thursday
Your New Culver City Seafood Perch
TAKES TWO TO TANGAROA

Your New Culver City Seafood Perch

Feel that? That’s the start of raw bar weather. Culver City’s Tangaroa opens at 3pm today with a raw bar party. Poke and ceviche will be there. Will you?

Friday
75% Off Summer Torso Requirements
PERSE SNATCHER

75% Off Summer Torso Requirements

Hey, hold on, wait a second. You might have gone into this weekend blissfully unaware that Ted Baker is offering deep discounts on leather bags, shirts and suits in Downtown. And that James Perse has up to 75% off stuff like polos, summer blazers and shorts in Hollywood. But now you won’t.

A Cryptic Gallery Parts Its Doors
CONTAIN IN THE MEMBRANE

A Cryptic Gallery Parts Its Doors

This guy opened a crazy Downtown graffiti art gallery inside of an old Japanese ice cream factory last year. It’s shrouded in mystery and it has rarely been open to the public. But he’s inviting you in on Friday night to investigate while consuming food truck products. So it’s gone straight from recluse stage to food truck festival stage.

Saturday
Agave Liquor Steeps the Valley
MEZCALIFORNICATION

Agave Liquor Steeps the Valley

Aged tequila and Mexican Coke. Fresno chili maple and mezcal joven. Mexican truffle simple and rum. Cocktails al pastor. Those are things you’ll drink at Studio City’s new Mexican street food place Cocina Condesa, not fleeting inspirations from a magnetic poetry kit you copped in Tijuana.

Now open, Cocina Condesa, 11616 Ventura Blvd, Studio City, 818-579-4264

Monday
A Whiskey Museum... Finally
RYE HUMOR

A Whiskey Museum... Finally

LA’s own whiskey museum opens Monday. It’s a permanent collection of historic ephemera including forgotten spirits and ancient whiskey-related artifacts. It’s debuting with gratis pours of the stuff at the LA Public Library. No, wait, it’s at Seven Grand. That makes more sense.
