It’s the Fucking Catalina Wine Mixer

Scorsese’s Hits, Suckling Pig Tacos and, Yes, a Catalina Wine Mixer

THE MARTIN CHRONICLES

The Departed Always Did Lack a Good Mezzo-Soprano

Imagine Martin Scorsese cast talented and photogenic singers to carry Goodfellas, The Departed and Casino. It might look a little bit like For the Record’s new live show, which puts a tuneful spin on the director’s films. De Niro doesn’t do singing.

New Happy Hour. New Sports Bar. New You.
SO HAPPY TOGETHER

New Happy Hour. New Sports Bar. New You.

Wednesday afternoon: You’re drinking margaritas with cilantro crystals and eating suckling pig tacos at 1212’s new weekday happy hour.
Wednesday night: You’re watching the game with friends over draft wine and filet mignon at Silver Lake’s new 33 Taps.
Thursday morning: Ugh, not doing that.

PRESTIGE WORLDWIDE

You Don’t Need a Reason to Visit Catalina. Still...

You should go to Catalina this weekend. There’s going to be a three-day, Step Brothers–inspired wine mixer featuring drinking by the beach and live bands playing in the sea breeze. It’s also just a really nice place to visit from time to time.

Saturday
It’s Breakfast. We Think.
DESTROY STORY

It’s Breakfast. We Think.

Red Medicine’s Jordan Kahn has a new breakfast and lunch spot called Destroyer. You’ll find raw oatmeal with red currant, parsnip soup with banana and fresh cheese dumplings with snap peas there. You will not find Count Chocula.

Now open, Destroyer, 3578 Hayden Ave, Culver City

These Are Not Your Ordinary Cakes and Cookies
POINT BAKE

These Are Not Your Ordinary Cakes and Cookies

Some of the town’s best pastry chefs are rallying in Hollywood this Sunday for a benefit starring lots of sweet stuff. Expect cookies, biscuits and cakes from people like Roxana Jullapat, Bestia’s Genevieve Geris and Craft’s Shannon Swindle. A bake sale was easier than putting on a show.

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