Your Perks: 1) A bottle of Dom Pérignon that looks like Björk designed it. Because she did. 2) Sustainably sourced Italian caviar that you’ll put on brioche or blinis or tiny spoons and enjoy. 3) Umbrellas that are so good, they’re worthy of bragging about. Which you’re allowed to do.
Things to do for February 10, 2016
A Cake Maze, Cannabis Truffles and a Floating Library
All’s fair in love and weekend.
Happy Valentine’s. Have Some Cannabis Chocolates.
You’re seeking something other than roses. Something better. Then you discover To Whom It May, slinging aesthetically pleasing boxes of chocolate truffles infused with cannabis. They come in flavors like smoked almond truffle butter and cherry cayenne. Then you think, “These are alarmingly better than roses.”
Here, Have a Floating Library
You’ll spend an afternoon at the library this weekend. Awesome. Oh, but it’s a library that’s floating over Echo Park Lake and covered in hand-bound books, independent magazines and printed materials from local artists. And you have to take a paddleboat to get there. So... awesome.
Dueling Eateries in Their Formative Years
Friday: you peer past Daily Dose and see Imli, an upcoming Indian street food place holding a two-night pop-up with Goan prawn curry and sandwiches cooked over an open fire. Saturday: you enter Lou’s place and join Large Marge for pancetta-wrapped shrimp jalapeño poppers and more sandwiches. Friday and Saturday: you achieve nirvana.
Saturday, You Gumbo
Harold & Belle’s just came roaring out of hibernation with a clean new look and drinks from a Jones Hollywood vet. Otherwise, they’re indulging in the same old behaviors. Like serving you fried chicken, gumbo and po’boys. Didn’t think you’d mind.
Oh, Just a Massive Maze of Cake
One of the artists behind Banksy’s Dismaland is making you an enormous maze out of cakes and candy at Think Tank Gallery. There’ll also be an open bar, edible cocktails from some Varnish bartenders, various pop-up dinners and a watercolor ice cream truck through next month. Abstract expressionist ice cream trucks still aren’t a thing.
