Your Perks: 1) A five-course cooking class with cocktail pairings. Practice makes perfect. 2) An umbrella that can resist gale-force winds. Though maybe you should just go inside if it comes to that. 3) Button-ups from the one and only Jared Lang. You like them.
Things to do for August 27, 2015
Nicolas Cage, Reservoir Dogs and Ribs
Sweet weekends are made of this.
Hollywood Finally Gets a Sugarfish
Sugarfish opens at Sunset and Gower today. So your pre-ArcLight/post-Amoeba hunger pangs will meet a slow fade over pristine sashimi and blue crab rolls. Hopefully Hollywood takes to this whole sushi thing.
Party with Fake Nic Cage
Imagine Nicolas Cage inviting you and his famous friends over for a barbecue at his place, where everyone swaps stories and exposes their massive celebrity egos. Live the fantasy at a UCB show based on that. Unless you’re going to a real Hollywood barbecue like that.
Churro Waffles, Oh Yeah
Brunch. You eat it. And now Toca Madera has it. If that wasn’t amazing enough, brunch at Toca Madera involves chipotle chicken and churro waffles, and cocktails with Stumptown cold brew and vanilla tequila. So now you eat brunch at Toca Madera. The circle is complete.
Tarantino’s First, at the Autry
Reservoir Dogs. It’s a buddy movie about a bunch of industrious sharp-dressers who hatch a scheme to get rich quick. Then hilarity ensues. It’ll be great on the Autry’s big screen on Saturday. Also, everyone dies at the end.
Dinosaur Ribs. Not Real Dinosaur.
Sunday afternoon. You could do a little grilling with friends. Or just head to Messhall, where they’ll close out summer by smoking sausages, ribs, salmon and dinosaur beef ribs. You can eat it there or take it all home. Wherever there’s better bourbon.
