Three Compelling New Reasons to Frequent Silver Lake

Per made-up California code 56.43, we must inform you of your new Silver Lake options. Maré now has a stunning open-walled location serving skirt steak with uni butter. NYC just gave you a MatchaBar. And Sean Brock’s former chef de cuisine has a three-month residency at Trois Familia. Just doing our jobs here.

Saddle Peak Finally Gets a Burger. A Double One, at That.

Saddle Peak Lodge has a new bar menu for guests who want to keep it casual among all the animal heads and ancient firearms. And there’s a burger. A double burger with blue cheese and umami bacon relish. The takeaway: animal heads. No, sorry. Burger.

SILENT NIGHT

Loud Art and a Soundless Disco

Friday evening. It starts with the introduction of an art installation covering two Downtown properties by the guy behind Endless Summer’s iconic poster, and continues with a silent disco at Fig at 7th. And probably continues long after that.

Saturday
Seven Courses of the Sweet Stuff
DESSERT FURY

Seven Courses of the Sweet Stuff

You’ve got some courting and wooing to do in the days ahead. Good time to consider the Peninsula’s new seven-course dessert menu with delights like Nutella crepes, red velvet cake and coconut terrine. It also comes with bottomless champagne, so there’s the added bonus of drinking a fair amount of that.

ABSOLUTE FLOWER

Well, You Do Probably Need Some Flowers

Valentine’s Day procrastinating? Go Downtown on Sunday, when One Santa Fe provides a flower market and party. Then hit Smorgasburg’s gift market, slinging everything from local nightgowns to handmade cards to more flowers. Can’t go wrong with flowers. Unless you do.

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