You expect your pocket squares to be soft pieces of fabric with unique patterns. You don’t expect them to be made from internationally sourced linen with an edge crocheted by hand. Which means you’re in for a great surprise in a minute.
Things to do for September 28, 2016
Patina’s Got a New Restaurant
So There’s That. There’s Also Gratis Ice Cream and the Rarest of Beers.By Hadley Tomicki
Go weekend, it’s your birthday.
It’s Basically an Estate Sale for Beer
Library Alehouse’s cicerone has some incredibly rare beers this week. He’s clearing out the beer vaults and offering you 50% off vintage ales like the Bruery’s barrel-aged sour collaboration with Cigar City and a 750 mL cherry-fermented sour from Belgium. That’s gotta pair well with a burger.
Gratis Ice Cream. You Need This Right Now.
Gresescent Ice Cream did their homework. They knew LA wasn’t going to be torturously hot until October drew near. So they’ll grand-open in Downtown tomorrow with gratis scoops of flavors like blackberry mint mojito and grilled pineapple topped with bourbon caramel. And they had a feeling you’d appreciate that.
Charlie Chaplin Gets a New Soundtrack
Now you can watch the films of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton with contemporary soundtracks played by DJs, guitarists and bands from today. That’s the idea behind Downtown’s new UnSilent Cinema. Will it work? There’s a happy hour beforehand, so of course it will work.
Where Fried-Chicken-and-Beignets Bloom
You’ve done Descanso Gardens. Smelled the roses. Admired the oaks. But you’re yet to appreciate the fried-chicken-and-beignets and cheeseburgers. Those appear Saturday, when Joachim Splichal opens his new place, Maple, starting with brunch. The fried chicken might even beat the roses.
A Legendary Porchetta Rides Again
You’ve been missing Evan Funke’s porchetta. Even Evan Funke missed Evan Funke’s porchetta. So he’ll pop up this Sunday with Slow Rise Pizza at Smorgasburg to unleash a pizza-influenced twist on the porky sandwiches everyone holds so dear. Your pained, porchetta-less cries have been heard.
