It’s Mother’s Day Flowers Time

Dear Mom,

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.

... is a thing you might write in your card.

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.

MERCHANTS OF VENICE

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.

It’s Not Dinner in Hong Kong, but It’s Close
VICTORY BLVD

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.
