Two Georgia lawyers with a strong eye for solid neckwear did that thing where they commissioned European mills to custom-make fabrics and then got some New York tailors to craft those fabrics into exquisite bow ties. Why don’t you get a few to wear this spring.
Things to do for April 27, 2016
In Person with Iggy Pop. Also, with Some New Tacos.
<em>Full Metal Weekend</em>
Iggy Pop Kindly Requests Your Presence
Iggy Pop and Josh Homme are having a party tonight. No need for alarm, it’s just a civilized little art show showcasing 24 photographs and 8 mm film footage behind the making of their new album with the whole band in attendance. Still, anything could happen. Iggy being Iggy and all.
Jazz, Bowling and Vinyl
The live jazz party known as Jazzilla will hold its last event at Spare Room tonight. Come see Toro y Moi’s Jordan Blackmon spin an all-vinyl set with Dublab’s founder on percussion, followed by twin jazz duo Mattson 2. And wear funny bowling shoes. Super important.
Whiskey. Pasta. Power Lunch.
Downtown’s got a new wood-and-marble-covered power spot to get you through lunch. It’s called Miro, like the Spanish painter. And it serves rare whiskey alongside things like beef cheek pasta and lamb sausage pizza. Its whiskey-and-pasta period really speaks to today.
You’ll Eat This Weekend. You’ll Eat Well.
Saturday, 10:05am: Since you’re up, investigate Santa Monica’s Bondi Harvest. It’s a
charming new Australian spot with breakfast burritos, burgers and flat whites.
Saturday, 12:44pm: Having reached your recommended daily burrito allowance, meet some friends at Kogi Taqueria for Kogi favorites, plus asada and carnitas tacos.
Saturday, 2pm: Beach naps.
Let’s Get Ready to Bacon
Bacon. That’s the theme of this festival in Downtown on Sunday. Bacon. So you’ll find lots of that in both sweet and savory forms. Plus the chance to experience new concepts like Miro and Baldoria. But mostly, it’s just bacon. Lots of bacon.
