Your Perks: 1) A John Allan’s haircut, shampoo, facial massage, shoeshine and manicure, and the choice to not tell anyone about the manicure if you’d prefer. 2) Up to 65% off new swim trunks. Figured you could use those. 3) A juice cleanse to offset any BBQ damage you may be planning for the Fourth.
Things to do for June 25, 2015
Tacos, Bloody Marys and Mazes
When you wish upon a weekend.
You’re Going Solo
Remember when Alone sent you solo into a terrifying pitch-black basement around Halloween? Well, for summer, they’ve got a new theatrical experience that moves you through a space to explore... uh, less scary stuff? Alone? You still might get touched by a stranger. Can’t imagine that’s a deal breaker, but...
Uniform Up for Summer
Tough news: you have to wear some clothes this summer. Good news: Silver Lake’s new shop Virgil Normal has gingham Bridge & Burn button-downs and Apolis trunks. Speaking of which, Apolis has a huge sale with short-sleeve shirts and shorts up to 80% off this weekend. So that’s more news.
Hi. Here’s Five Bloody Marys.
There’s a notorious Santa Monica legend. Claims that people will visit Del Frisco’s on Sunday saying “Bloody Mary” a lot. Then five Bloody Marys will materialize from places like BP Taco, the Lobster and Areal. Everyone will vote on a favorite. What’s done cannot be undone.
Filipino Rice Bowls by a Patina Vet
Rice bowls. Maybe not the most exciting word duo on the planet. Until you learn they’re made Filipino-style by Patina’s old chef at a new place from the owner of Mignon and Papilles with longanisa sausage and slow-cooked jidori chicken. Then it’s like, whoa. Rice bowls.
Taco Tuesday at the Hungry Cat
You recently found the best new taco place. Every Tuesday, it serves crazy stuff like fried clam belly tostadas and lamb belly tacos that you go and eat with mezcal palomas. It’s called the Hungry Cat. Right, that Hungry Cat.
