Your Perks: 1) Speakers and headphones made from walnut, which is infinitely sexier than white plastic. 2) Particularly sultry underthings for special occasions. Or maybe the occasion becomes special because of these. 3) Vintage bags and scarves by Louis Vuitton. We have a feeling this Louis guy is going to make it.
Things to do for February 03, 2016
A New Burger, Hot Neon and a Sleepover
Put the weekend in, coach.
Your Sand Dab Sandwiches Are Served
Leona just began serving lunch. You know, for people who might like taking in the sea breeze while eating sand dab sandwiches, bulgogi chicken wings and a burger inspired by French onion soup. In case you know anyone or whatever.
Two New Places to Lunch, and Lunch Hard
It’s afternoon. There are difficult decisions to make. For instance, are you hitting Bruce Kalman’s 16-seat Knead at Grand Central Market for porchetta dips and handmade duck agnolotti? Or will you do Chinatown’s Amboy for Filipino pork belly and steak from Eggslut’s founder? Hush. Don’t answer.
No Way This Doesn’t Get Weird
Expect an after-hours pageant of multisensory art at the Music Center on Friday. Come after midnight when they’ll take walk-ins. Then you can check out DJs, pillow screen printing, a shadow puppet cityscape, light and sound installations, and something called “furniture music.” Otherwise, you’ll probably experience none of that.
All the Neon, None of the Vegas
The Museum of Neon is having a big grand-opening party on Saturday. There’ll be an open bar, desserts and multiple live bands. Oh, and massive glowing signs shaped like hats and hardware and words. Presumably.
Nominee Catch-Up Time
You can’t fight the unrelenting sense that Anomalisa would go better with a glass of wine or cold beer from the concession stand. So don’t. Just go see it at Laemmle’s cool-looking new Monica Arts Complex and try this bold experiment out for yourself.
