The Super Bowl is almost here, and with it: the chance to achieve total snacking domination. And while there are plenty of great utility players on your radar (nachos always wear their game face), this might be the year to bring in a ringer. Like a lot of caviar. Which, incidentally, also works well on nachos. Ah, teamwork.
Things to do for January 11, 2017
There’s a Hidden Melrose Bar in Here
Plus a Prince vs. Bowie Dance Party, Which Is Friendlier Than It SoundsBy Hadley Tomicki
Power Lunch. And a Pretty Mellow One, Too.
Your next power lunch: Meatballs and clam-and-shrimp pizza at Nerano with some guys in
Your next lunch date: Blue crab poke bowls at Mainland’s new Marina del Rey depot with somebody you like.
Together they form... your lunches.
Nudes of the Tasteful Sort
Nu Muses was a big breakout at Art Basel. And now they’re displaying a collection of some of their favorite stylish nudes at this weekend’s Photo LA, thus saving you a trip to Miami in a time machine.
Coffee. Wine. Coffee and Wine.
Coffee and wine: two things you usually don’t enjoy at the same time. But when you’re at Vintage Enoteca, and someone is pairing dishes like coffee-rubbed pork ribs and seared albacore tuna with coffee aioli to all of your wines, you tend to quit adhering to stupid rules.
Prince vs. Bowie, but Nice
Bootie LA plans to spend its Saturday mashing up David Bowie and Prince songs. All so you can dance the night away to two of 2016’s most dearly departed artists. Healing will follow. Then everything will be perfectly fine for the rest of 2017.
All Aboard for Flaming Mai Tais
Melrose Station is a secretive new bar from the Glass Hookah Lounge people. It’s reached through a hidden corridor, it resembles a British train station, and it serves flaming mai tais and salad on a stick. And they insist you request your own invitation. Not that you’re not invited.
