Your Perks: 1) Many fall-ready button-ups that you’re the first to see because “exclusivity” is a thing we do. 2) A hoverboard-like device. Apparently gliding a few inches above the ground isn’t overrated. 3) Vintage Rolexes from the ’70s, ’80s and ’90s. They were some good years for Rolexes.
Things to do for September 30, 2015
Ant Ice Cream, Graffiti Art and Vegan Oktoberfest
<em>Where the Wild Weekends Are</em>
CasaLinda’s Back. It’s Got Tequila Now.
Abbot Kinney taco disaster averted. You can now go back to CasaLinda’s regularly scheduled lunches of tortilla soup and al pastor tortas, because it’s just reopened inside of Primitivo. And make sure to test out some of their new tequilas. Be firm, but fair.
A Date Wouldn’t Hate This
A swarm of street artists is taking over Siren Studios this weekend. They’re covering the walls with their paintings, installations and prints. It’s going to be bedlam. No, wait... It’s actually a three-day festival dedicated to their work. They’re totally allowed to do that.
Those Are Sprinkles, Right?
Starting Friday, Salt & Straw will serve Halloween flavors including a green-grass scoop packed with ants and other bugs preserved in hard candy amber. Meanwhile, Little Spoon will pop up at the Brig with a cart full of frozen puddings like s’mores and peanut butter brownie, should you take your cold desserts bug-less.
This Is Still Real Life. We Checked.
That attractive vegan you’re seeing wants to experience the many-splendored joys of Oktoberfest. Enter: Vegan Oktoberfest. Yep. Over 50 breweries will be there, plus food from Donut Friend, the Springs and Sage. There will be other, less vegan Oktoberfests next year.
The Return of a Paella Master
You missed former Smoke.Oil.Salt chef Perfecto Rocher. And he missed you. But now, you’ll have Sundays together at Hinoki & the Bird, where he’s making three paellas. And Mondays, when he’ll do five courses of stuff like foie chestnut soup and wood-fired octopus. In your heart, you always knew he’d be back.
