The Weekender

Sumo, Champagne and Ice Cream

Weekend enough for ya?

Thursday
Coolhaus Gets Triangular
HAUS BOUND

Coolhaus Gets Triangular

For the next couple of months, Coolhaus will take inspiration from Jewish delis. So they’ll be making stuff like black-and-white cookies and triangular hamentash ice cream sandwiches. Don’t ask questions. Just eat your cookies.

Available through Sep 30, Coolhaus, 8588 W Washington Blvd, Culver City, 310-838-5559

Friday
Popping Up, Peruvian-Style
THE ZARATE KID

Popping Up, Peruvian-Style

Ricardo Zarate is back. With a vengeance. Actually, he’s just back with 11 Peruvian staples like lomo saltado and ceviche, which he’ll be making at a pop-up called Once at Santino’s. No sign of vengeance.

Saturday
A Fine Saturday for Sumo Wrestling
WET HOT AMERICAN SUMO

A Fine Saturday for Sumo Wrestling

Occasionally there are good reasons to go to Long Beach. Tremendously sized humans crashing into and wrestling one another in a major sumo tournament housed under a giant metal pyramid just might happen to be one of those things. Got to maintain your standards.

Sunday
A Little Sunday-Brunch Showdown
SADDLE VS. BARREL
