Things to do for August 03, 2016
Frozen Foie Gras. Flaming Mezcal. General Dancing About.

Frozen Foie Gras and Flaming Mezcal: Happening
Alert: Alma has indefinitely taken over the Standard, Hollywood. Be advised that this means an increased likelihood of frozen foie gras with smoked maple and coffee granola in your life. Then there’s tonight’s situation where Winsome begins serving dinner over flaming mezcal drinks and roasted branzino. You’ve been warned.

You, Your Mai Tai and That 180-Degree View
Some big changes just went down concerning Yamashiro’s ownership, with renovations expected. Until then, you’ll just enjoy 180-degree views from its Pagoda Bar and a new happy hour, where $7 pistachio salmon sushi and mai tais using a 100-year-old recipe are served. With age come great mai tais.
