Your Perks: 1) Rugged briefcases, weekenders and messenger bags made of canvas. Give it up for canvas. 2) Soft button-ups that are practically begging to be worn to a rooftop date. 3) Handbags from Céline. Yes, this is the kind of thing Mom might want. Okay, definitely wants.
Things to do for April 13, 2016
Beethoven Meets Yeezus, Kaftan Dancing and Coffee with Dogs
The weekend wins for Vin.
It’s a Dog Café. With Real Dogs and Everything.
Man’s best friend: coffee. Or dogs. Hard to choose. Anyway, you won’t need to at the Dog Cafe, a new Silver Lake place serving fair-trade coffee while you hang out petting rescue dogs and consider taking one home. Resistance is futile.
Grab a Date. Come Here. Breed Success.
Someone just went and turned SAG’s former headquarters into a new restaurant and wine bar called the Guild. Come for dinner and find New Zealand lamb chops, bone marrow with beef tongue and a nice pinot. Presumably for less than what your agent takes.
The New Desert Oasis You Seek
The Arrive hotel just opened in Palm Springs with a courtyard pool, cabanas and a huge hot tub for you. There’s also a restaurant with breakfast cocktails and Hawaiian bread french toast. If only you had a reason to be in Palm Springs this weekend.
Dance Like No One’s Wearing Pants
Saturday afternoon. You’re by the pool on the Ace’s roof, listening to disco from around the world. Dancers swirl around you, their spinning hems a blur of vintage fabric. You look around and find that you’re all wearing kaftans. So you begin dancing, too. And... scene.
Kanye and Beethoven. It Kinda Makes Sense.
Kanye is the Beethoven of 2016. At least according to Kanye. Anyway, on Saturday, you’ll have the chance to watch a live orchestra play selections from the Yeezus album intermingled with the great works of Beethoven. Play “Für Elise.” Play “Für Elise.”
