The Weekender

Vanilla Ice, a Spirit-Forward Ice Cream Truck and Some Non-Ice-Related Things

The weekend is rehearsing its stump speech.

Wednesday
Thursday
You Should Eat Lunch Here. It’s New.
KALI OF DUTY

You Should Eat Lunch Here. It’s New.

Midafternoon. You’re surrounded by sandwiches. But you’d really rather entertain a lunch of charred avocado with pistachio and a pork loin with preserved lemon and ash. Kali is a new place in which to consider such a lunch. Besides, when was the last time you had a nice lunch-ash...

Friday
A Very High-Proof Ice Cream Truck
GAME OF CONES

A Very High-Proof Ice Cream Truck

Break Room 86 has a new ice cream truck on its flank featuring gin-infused Push-Up pops, bourbon-laced chocolate bars and Coolhaus sandwiches employing whiskey and Lucky Charms. And Choco Tacos. Just regular Choco Tacos. Can’t really improve those.

Available now at Break Room 86, 630 S Ardmore Ave, 213-368-3056

Saturday
So Much ’90s. So Much Magical ’90s.
ICE ICE MAYBE

So Much ’90s. So Much Magical ’90s.

If reading the following names together gets you excited, you’ll want to attend Saturday’s I Love the ’90s concert. Ready: Vanilla Ice. Color Me Badd. Tone Loc. Other icons of the baggy-pantsed era. Excited? If not, well... that’s totally understandable, too.

Mezcal Mignonette and Baja Tacos, Please
MISSION TO MARA

Mezcal Mignonette and Baja Tacos, Please

Brentwood: totally not synonymous with great Mexican food. Then came oysters with mezcal mignonette, crabiqueso and Baja tacos from Maradentro, the Mexican seafood concept from Yxta and Mercado’s owners. And just like that, Mexican food synonymity was within Brentwood’s reach.

Sunday
More of Your Days Begin with Bao Now
CHAIRMAN BAO

More of Your Days Begin with Bao Now

You: Coca-Cola-braised pork in Röckenwagner-crafted bao would be nice this Sunday morning.
Person Next to You: Ha, yeah. If only...
You: No, we can get those at the Chairman, which just opened in Downtown.
Person Next to You: I admire people who know that exact thing.
