Your Perks: 1) A digital subscription to Playboy that also earns you a chance to win an invitation to party at the mansion. A few Playmates have already RSVP’d. 2) Button-ups inspired by the streets of London. Pretty inspiring place, we hear. 3) A juice cleanse to start the summer. Now’s the time.
Things to do for June 18, 2015
Al Pastor Cocktails, Whiskey Exhibits and Summer Shorts
Who weekended it better?
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?
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
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.
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.
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.
