Your Perks: 1) The same aviators worn by the Italian Air Force aerobatics team. Eye-catching. 2) More tank tops than we know what to do with. Seriously. Help. 3) One of these very rare, very vintage Omega watches. They move fast, if you can imagine.
Things to do for August 06, 2015
Sumo, Champagne and Ice Cream
Weekend enough for ya?
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.
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.
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.
A Little Sunday-Brunch Showdown
Sunday Boozy Brunch Option #1: Unlimited mimosas with house-cured wild
salmon (on the plates) and animal heads (on the walls) at Saddle Peak Lodge.
Sunday Boozy Brunch Option #2: Beer cocktails and vodka-spiked Stumptown with banana pudding french toast at Barrel Down. No animal heads here, if that makes a difference.
Chicago Bartenders Breeze Through L.P.
Two bartenders from Chicago’s Lost Lake are coming to town on Monday. They’ll be up on the roof at E.P. & L.P., making some of their signature tiki cocktails for the night. It’s the start of a whole guest bartender series. Collect ’em all.
