A Shadowy Underworld Conspiracy and a New Place to Eat Burgers

The weekend is not a crook.

Your Life: Suddenly a Weird and Vast Conspiracy
PRESENT TENSE

Your Life: Suddenly a Weird and Vast Conspiracy

Grab tickets for the Tension Experience this Friday and find yourself immediately entangled with a shadowy organization called the OOA. Your life will be peppered with mysterious strangers, cryptic puzzles and paranoia, cresting at a city-block-size experience in September. That was you who said you were looking for that, right?

You Will Dine Upon Many Meats Here
CITIZEN GAIN

You Will Dine Upon Many Meats Here

Citizen opens up next to Spago on Friday afternoon. That means your dependable supply of tamarind BBQ octopus, smoked short ribs, dry-aged prime beef burgers and tiki-tinged drinks is just two days away. We did the math.

Saturday
Where Beer Meets Pozole Tacos Meets You
ON POINT

Where Beer Meets Pozole Tacos Meets You

San Diego’s Ballast Point brewery just opened a location in Long Beach. You’ll find beers like their habanero IPA alongside casual things like pozole tacos, beer-steamed mussels and peanut-butter-, blackberry- and jalapeno-glazed chicken wings. Oh right, those.

Monday
It’s Vegetarian. But They Beer-Batter Things, So...
GETTING ERVEN

It’s Vegetarian. But They Beer-Batter Things, So...

Your Next Santa Monica Lunch Date: “I don’t eat meat.”
You: “Cool. We’ll hit Erven, where Saint Martha’s old chef will make us mole-spiced cinnamon rolls, gazpacho and beer-battered tofu sandwiches.”
YNSMLD: “This is really working out so far.”

Opens Jul 18, Erven, 514-516 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, 310-260-2255
