Things to do for December 16, 2015

The Weekender

Curling, Fried Chicken and a Big, Sunny Beer Garden

The weekend is strong with this one.

Wednesday
Nilla Wafers and Pasta in Downtown
WHAT’S PASTA IS PROLOGUE

Nilla Wafers and Pasta in Downtown

The ancients foretold of a day when a lone pasta chef from Bestia would enter Downtown’s Mignon wine bar to make you from-scratch dishes for lunch like orecchiette Bolognese and butternut-squash-stuffed pasta with pepitas and shaved Nilla wafers. The prophecy was really adamant about the Nilla wafers.

Friday
New Suit, Meet Your New Shoes
TWO CLOTHES FOR COMFORT

New Suit, Meet Your New Shoes

Your holiday party lineup looks heavy. And no offense to ugly sweaters, but you’ll be partial to the sharp stuff you procure at Suitsupply’s new Beverly Center space. And the wingtips you’ll find on sale at Esquivel’s showroom. Oh, great, now ugly sweaters just stormed out of the room.

A Beer Garden Grows in the Arts District
RESIDENT’S DAY

A Beer Garden Grows in the Arts District

We can’t guarantee beer garden weather this weekend. We can only guarantee that you’ll have Downtown’s new live music venue, Resident, serving you cocktails and over 20 draft beers from a vintage trailer in a giant beer garden. And nothing more.

Now open, Resident, 428 S Hewitt St, 323-316-5311

Saturday
You Get to Try Curling. Yay.
CURL JAM

You Get to Try Curling. Yay.

Curling: the Olympic sport that only looks interesting if you’re playing it. Good thing the Hollywood Curling club will offer introductory lessons in the middle of Pershing Square. You’ll learn some basics, then throw some giant stones across the ice. In other news: the Hollywood Curling club exists.

Sunday
Champagne: Better with Fried Chicken
BIRD CALL

Champagne: Better with Fried Chicken

Champagne and fried chicken. You’ll never really know if they go together unless you hit Wilde Wine Bar this Sunday, where they’re putting a golden crust on Mary’s Chicken, then pairing it with champagne, prosecco and cider. Crazy, but it just might work.
