About Your Emmy Weekend...

It Includes Danny Trejo, Fancy Black Cars and a Sky-High Lunch over Hollywood

By Hadley Tomicki

And the award for Outstanding Performance in a Weekend Series goes to...

Wednesday
Danny Trejo and Roy Choi Hit the Road
TRUCK EVERLASTING

Danny Trejo and Roy Choi Hit the Road

Danny Trejo’s taco joint and Roy Choi’s LocoL are both now available in truck form. Catch them cruising around the city, respectively slinging brisket tacos and carnitas foldies. And hopefully saving the world from an unknown menace hell-bent on our destruction.

Thursday
You’ll Recognize Michael’s New Chef
MIRACLE MILES

You’ll Recognize Michael’s New Chef

Maybe you’ve heard. Former Allumette chef Miles Thompson is now cooking full-time at Santa Monica’s legendary Michael’s. His new menu comes out tomorrow, with dishes like beef tartare with riesling vinegar and pork cheek sandwiches on Brazilian cheese bread. Then again, maybe you haven’t.

Saturday
Larry Clark, You May Now Christen LA’s New Arts HQ
WILD AT ART

Larry Clark, You May Now Christen LA’s New Arts HQ

United Talent Agency is debuting a fresh space for musicians, painters and other artists to display their work in Boyle Heights. The inauguration happens Saturday with an exhibit by director/photographer Larry Clark called DTLA. You’re invited to come check it out. And you just might.

Sunday
The Great Avocado Toast in the Sky
MATERNAL INSTINCTS

The Great Avocado Toast in the Sky

While Hollywood scrambles for golden statues on Sunday, you’ll be basking in natural light and a new lunch on Mama Shelter’s rooftop, making witty quips about your avocado toast and gesticulating with a glass of champagne in hand. Avocado toast can take it.

Your Ride Is Here. And How.
THE ELECTRIC COMPANY

Your Ride Is Here. And How.

So many Emmy parties, so few fleets of P90DL Teslas willing to take you places after greeting you with chilled towels and bottled water. Until now, when a new environmentally minded black car service named Motev starts doing this very thing. You didn’t even have to ask.

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