Waldorf Astoria or Scum & Villainy? You Decide.

It’s time to take immediate action to ensure a productive 2017. This could mean making reservations right now for Waldorf Astoria’s June opening in Beverly Hills. Or securing reservations this minute for Hollywood’s forthcoming Star Wars cantina-inspired bar. It most likely doesn’t mean both.

Ribs and Buns. Those’ll Do.

The forces behind Forage are finally ready to reveal their passion project at the old Nicky D’s space in Silver Lake. It’s a charming restaurant involving stir-fried ramen, spicy hoisin ribs with steamed buns and Baked Alaska with ale, sake and pinot. It’s cool that you all share some passions.

Just Put That Whiskey on Your House Account

How to use Culver City’s new Hi-Lo Liquor Market:

1) Walk in and establish your own house account.
2) Proceed to check out the notable whiskeys, beers, Manhattan-making gift boxes and fancy sandwiches.
3) Consider putting something on the Underhill account.
4) Don’t.

You’ll Take Your Mole with Duck, Damn It

You could be spending Saturday afternoon looking for parking at some mall. Or you could be spending it at Hollywood’s new La Carmencita, hoisting forkfuls of duck mole and tacofuls of smoked marlin. Somewhere there’s a subtle, life-changing hint buried within this message.

Where the Mulled Wine and Mincemeat Ice Cream Flow

The Pikey knows you have things to do on Christmas Eve. So it’s luring you in with mincemeat ice cream, goose neck ragù and a gratis glass of spiced mulled wine just for popping by. They certainly know how to straighten out your priorities.
