Things to do for March 23, 2016

The Weekender

Classic Cars, Steak Frites and Your New Coachella Hotel

Weekend favors the bold.

Wednesday
From Paris with Steak Frites
THE FRITES COME OUT AT NIGHT

From Paris with Steak Frites

Le Relais de l’Entrecôte came all the way from Paris just to serve you steak frites in a nice French bistro in Beverly Hills. Meaning that you now have a second Melrose option for sliced beef and fries following L’Assiette. There really can never be enough of these things.

Saturday
Grab a Date. Go to Venice. Eat Here.
GREEN ZONE

Grab a Date. Go to Venice. Eat Here.

It just became a lot easier to grab a casual lunch with a date in Venice. All you have to do is head into Abbot Kinney’s new Greenleaf. They’ll order whatever fits their lacto-ovo-gluten-free lifestyle. You’ll get the Angus burger. It’s called compromise.

Burlesque and Old-School Cars at the Federal Bar
BURLESQUE THAN ZERO

Burlesque and Old-School Cars at the Federal Bar

They don’t make them like they used to. Unless they’re Federal Bar, which is planning an evening of vintage cars and retro pinup burlesque while you eat and drink. Expect a sexy bathtub show, contortionists and oversize champagne glasses. Possibly all at the same time.

Sunday
Two Brunches, Both Sans Bunnies
EASTER PROMISES

Two Brunches, Both Sans Bunnies

We’re not saying you shouldn’t do Easter brunch with the family. We’re just saying you may want to consider the new brunch at Baltaire, where there’s king crab biscuits and mezcal sours. Or brunch at Wolf, which has chicken and waffles and chai french toast. And neither have your weird uncle.

Sat-Sun, 10am-3pm, Baltaire, 11647 San Vicente Blvd, Brentwood, 424-273-1660, see the menu; Sat-Sun, 10am-3pm, Wolf, 7661 Melrose Ave, 323-424-7735

Monday
Meet Your New Coachella Quarters
SPRINGS BREAK

Meet Your New Coachella Quarters

Coachella approaches. Your main-stage battle plan is taking shape. And now, you have the 140-room V Palm Springs for sheltering your group. It’s where you’ll all spend a little downtime drinking drinks poolside and placing bets on whether Axl’s actually going to show up.

Opens Mar 28, V Palm Springs, 333 E Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, 877-544-4446
