Things to do for December 16, 2015
Curling, Fried Chicken and a Big, Sunny Beer Garden
The weekend is strong with this one.
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.
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
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.
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.
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.
