Your Perks: 1) A membership that scores you tough-to-get reservations at top restaurants around the country. Useful. Quite useful. 2) Stunning wooden headphones that look and sound amazing. Nicely done, trees. 3) A special bottle of Dom Pérignon. Make sure you always have (at least) one handy.
Things to do for February 24, 2016
Boots, Breakfast Pizza and Your Official Oscar Venue
Allow the weekend to reintroduce itself.
LA’s Favorite Critic Hits the Big Screen
Big week for movies. Oh, sure, yeah, the Oscars. That. But also City of Gold, that big Jonathan Gold documentary, will be showing tonight at the Hammer followed by a Q&A with the man himself. So you can clear up all those sequel rumors.
Donuts. Beer. You Can Have It All.
If you’re a morning person, you’ll want to start your day at Downtown’s small new Mega Bodega for donuts and coffee. If you’re an evening person, you’ll come for 12 rotating beers and conversation. If you’re a person, you’ll want to stop by sometime for donuts and beer.
Jackets and Boots and Things: The Sale
Helm American-made boots and Krammer & Stoudt clothes will be 25% off this weekend at Liberty Concept Space. And down on La Brea, Stone Island just opened its first US store for high-tech down jackets and button-downs. All pretty useful. Especially if wearing clothes is something you’re into.
Mozza’s Egg-and-Bacon Pizza Will See You Now
Pizzeria Mozza is now serving brunch. So you can finally hit the Melrose super-Italian for Nancy Silverton’s breakfast pastries and pizzas covered in bacon, eggs and Yukon Gold potatoes. The world just wasn’t ready until now, you see.
Everyone’s an Oscar Winner Here
Assuming you’re not nominated, you’ll want to watch the Oscars being live-streamed inside the Ace’s theater. They’ll have DJs, an improv show, bingo, karaoke, ballots and basically everything else on earth that keeps you from having to endure unending acceptance speeches.
