Your Perks: 1) Supersoft V-neck T-shirts in 18 different colors. So one of them is probably your favorite color. 2) Bags inspired by the Hamptons, which is coincidentally a place you could use these bags to get away to. 3) Triptych canvas prints that are made with ink that’ll last a full century.
Things to do for April 06, 2016
24-Karat Gold Donuts, New Tacos and Shiny, Shiny Leather
The Weekend Papers
Fried Chicken and Gold Donuts. That Works.
Birdies is your new Downtown spot for fried-chicken sandwiches, coffee and donuts made from scratch. You’ll find flavors like maple bacon, horchata dulce de leche and blueberry lemon. Oh, and 24-karat gold donuts with champagne glaze for a cool $100 a pop. Mmm, precious metals.
Shinola Gets Beach-Adjacent
Detroit’s Shinola (you know Detroit’s Shinola) opens on Abbot Kinney this Friday. So now you’ll have a place in Venice for handsome watches, bicycles and leather bags. Maybe now they’ll even get into leather surfboards.
San Francisco Brought You Some Tacos
Handmade flour tortillas. Mesquite-grilled asada. Rancho Gordo beans. That’s what tacos are like at Loqui, a small new Mexican place from San Francisco that’s now open at Culver City’s Platform. Finally, LA gets a little Mexican food.
LACMA Takes a Deep Dive into Clothes and Stuff
LACMA begins a major retrospective of historical men’s fashion on Sunday. It will explore 200 looks, including the outfits of bewigged aristocrats, the 19th-century dandy, zoot suits and today’s slim-cut jackets. You had a feeling powdered wigs would have a big year.
It’s Dinner. And Also History.
The Pacific Food & Beverage Museum is taking you back to colonial America in a brand-new dinner series. First up is Hatchet Hall, preparing early 1700s recipes like shrimp and grits and a peas-and-rice dish called Hoppin’ John. Expect boozy punches, too. Those are timeless.
