The Weekender

Mexican Wrestlers, Giraffes and a Chocolate Factory

Weekend Dearest

Wednesday
Found All the Handsomeness
PARLOR TRICKS

Found All the Handsomeness

Gallant & Beau is merging its British pocket squares and socks with Clark & Madison’s leather goods, Singer + Sargent’s clothes, and some nice furniture and Wheelhouse bikes. And tonight, there’s a grand-opening party with Ventura Spirits drinks. Drinks seemed like the only things missing.

May 4, 7-10pm, The Parlor, 144 S Robertson Blvd, 310-801-4528

Thursday
Tequila. An All-Female Mariachi Band. Must Be May 5.
THAT CINCO FEELING

Tequila. An All-Female Mariachi Band. Must Be May 5.

If you must celebrate Cinco tomorrow, the only conscionable move is to do it at El Chavo, where Jarritos-and-mezcal cocktails and Mexican wrestlers will collide. And/or at Las Perlas, where margarita specials will be paired with an all-female mariachi band. Only if you must.

May 5, 4pm-close, no cover, El Chavo, 4441 Sunset Blvd, Silver Lake, 323-664-0871; May 5, 5pm-2am, no cover, Las Perlas, 107 E 6th St, Downtown, 213-988-8355

Saturday
An Oompa Loompa–Free Chocolate Factory
FULL MAST

An Oompa Loompa–Free Chocolate Factory

New York’s Mast Brothers are grand-opening their Arts District chocolate factory and shop on Saturday. Come for a tour and taste goat’s milk chocolate bars, chocolate chip cookies and the new chocolate beer they’re brewing. Chocolate beer. Felt worth repeating, is all.

Opens May 7, Mast, 816 S Santa Fe Ave, Downtown

Horse Racing with a Side of Zebras
DERBY DEEDS

Horse Racing with a Side of Zebras

You’re up at Saddlerock Ranch, surrounded by attractive people in fetching hats. There’s a julep in your hand. Live bluegrass is playing. Everyone’s watching the Kentucky Derby on giant screens. Yet you’re slightly more intrigued by the actual giraffes, zebras and camels all around you. Anyway, those are your Derby plans.

Sunday
Rum, Scotch Eggs and Mom
LOCK STAR

Rum, Scotch Eggs and Mom

You should do something special for Mother’s Day. Like taking Mom to Lock & Key’s new three-course brunch of Filipino breakfast foods. There, she can have adobo chicken and waffles, longanisa Scotch eggs and drinks with rum, amaretto and boba in them. Now you’re even for that whole gift-of-life thing.
