These flowers were grown on the side of a volcano. Some kind gentlemen hiked up and cut them so I could have a dozen delivered to you fresh in time for Mother’s Day. I mean, volcano flowers. What a world.

Things to do for April 20, 2016
THC Breath Strips, Martinis and Pizza by the Beach
Say you, say weekend.
Just Leave 4/20 to Tommy Chong
Tommy Chong is rolling out a new line of cannabis products at local dispensaries today. Chong’s Choice includes packs of pre-rolled joints, THC oil pens and THC-infused breath strips. In other celebrity news, Daniel Day-Lewis is not doing this.
Hal’s Is Back. Or You Can Get Pizza.
Couple big developments in your beachside dates: 1) Hal’s just reopened in Primitivo’s space with those steaks, jazz, burgers and martinis you remember from meals past. 2) Osteria Venice West just inhabited Piccolo’s old space with all that pizza and pasta you may also remember. You know, in the future.
A Little Bit Surfy, a Little Bit... Other
Some things you might need from Stampd’s first store:
—A cashmere-and-wool officer’s overcoat.
—A high-tech windbreaker made with Puma.
—A surfboard that looks like marble.
Something you won’t need:
—A beanie. Ever.
Pig Ear Scrapple: It’s What’s for Brunch at Redbird
This week, Redbird begins Sunday brunch. There will be heritage pork posole, grilled lamb belly, pig ear scrapple and Red Eye cocktails with bourbon, BBQ bitters, maple syrup and cold-brew coffee. And other stuff. Lots and lots of other stuff, too.
It’s Not Dinner in Hong Kong, but It’s Close
On Monday, the Blvd at the Beverly Wilshire won’t really be the Blvd. It’ll be more like a place you’ll go for seven courses of stuff like Brittany lobster tart, Atlantic scallop biscuits and Kobe strip steak from the Michelin-starred chefs at Hong Kong’s Caprice. Yeah, more that kind of vibe.
