Your Perks: 1) A drone that fits in the palm of your hand. Which is a bad thing in no way. 2) Tom Ford sunglasses that’ll shield your eyes from other sunglasses that aren’t Tom Ford. And the sun, of course. 3) Underwear that’s way better than regular underwear. Thanks to science.
Things to do for July 31, 2015
Marilyn Monroe, Rick Bayless and Rick James
<em>Weekends with Morrie</em>
A Marilyn Monroe Exhibit. You Accept.
Welcome to the Limited Runs Marilyn Monroe photography exhibit. Here you’ll find 21 previously unseen, large-format color separations from the 1949 nude “Red Velvet” shoot, which were used to produce Monroe’s now-iconic “Golden Dreams” calendar. If you look closely, you’ll notice—never mind, these really don’t require much explanation.
Rick James. An Open Bar. Perfect.
What you’ll find at the Record Parlour’s Rick James vinyl rerelease party: an open bar, live DJs and a display featuring some of James’s most outlandish stage attire. What you won’t find: Dave Chappelle. Probably. You never know where that guy might show up.
Happy Day for Santa Monica
Los Angeles: We’ve got some things for you.
Santa Monica: What are they?
LA: First, an outpost of Herringbone (for whole-fish ceviche and the like). Then, Rick Bayless’s Red O (for Mexican-style surf and turf).
SM: Is that all?
LA: Careful now.
General Quarters Seems to Like You
Seven hours. That’s how long you’ll have at General Quarters to comb through a significantly discounted selection of Rogue Territory denim and the store’s eponymous T-shirts, jackets and pants and things. So take all the time you need, as long as it’s not longer than seven hours.
The point of the Lion and the Mouse fable is that a Belgian-style dubbel brewed using a single barley varietal in Napa Valley tastes really good with wild boar sausage. No, wait. That’s the point of the Lion and the Mouse beer pop-up at the Peninsula. Classic mix-up.
