A Date with Destiny. And Smoked Mozzarella Sticks.
COSA AND EFFECT

A Date with Destiny. And Smoked Mozzarella Sticks.

In the future, you’ll eat smoked mozzarella sticks and soft-shell shrimp scampi at Zach Pollack’s forthcoming restaurant, Cosa Buona. In the nearer future, you’ll eat those things at Zach Pollack’s Alimento, since that’s where he’s previewing said forthcoming restaurant through the end of the month. In conclusion: go to Alimento tonight.

Thursday
Civic Pride: The Vodka
THE FINEST OUR

Civic Pride: The Vodka

There’s a new spirit being distilled in the Arts District called Our Vodka. And get this: they actually want you to come try it in their tasting room in its pure, wheat-based form. Also, in cocktails created by local bartenders. If they insist...

The Arrivals... Finally Arrives
THREAD ON ARRIVAL

The Arrivals... Finally Arrives

Local label The Arrivals is physically manifesting itself off of the Internet to bring its bomber jackets and blazers to the Platform this weekend. Go check them out. Or simply maintain a long-standing online relationship. At least now you know they’re not catfishing.

Saturday
How the Cannibal Does Happy Hour
CANNIBAL RISING

How the Cannibal Does Happy Hour

The Cannibal just started offering happy hour at its bar and front patio. This means there will be $5 draft Old Fashioneds, $20 bottles of rosé and a self-serve bar with gratis charcuterie for one hour each day. Hence the “happy” and “hour” parts.

Daily, 5:30-6:30pm, The Cannibal, 8850 Washington Blvd, Culver City, 310-838-2783

Sunday
Escaping Hollywood’s Newest Hotel
PLANET OF THE ESCAPES

Escaping Hollywood’s Newest Hotel

Sure, you may have tried escape rooms. But now, Hollywood has an entire 1930s-era escape hotel dedicated to you figuring out how the hell to get out of it. There are rooms themed after the mafia, zombies, espionage and more. So, not totally unlike some other Hollywood hotels.

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
