Things to do for April 12, 2017
A Poolside Tribute to Beyoncé. That’s Happening.
So Are Foie Gras Churros and New Downtown DonutsBy Hadley Tomicki
Fill Those Churros With Foie, We Say
Bartender Devon Espinosa has a new home in Encino. It’s Woodley Proper, a comfortable place where he makes you bourbon-and-Becherovka cocktails while Phillip Frankland Lee prepares foie-gras-mousse-stuffed churro bites. And, yes, there’s a liquid ode to Encino Man on the menu. As you suspected there would be.
Tyler Wells Has Some New Coffee and Donuts for You
First, Tyler Wells coinvented Handsome Coffee Roasters. Now, he’s opening Nice, a Downtown Financial District coffee bar with a patio, sandwiches, housemade donuts and 49th Parallel coffee. Quite wise to diversify into donuts.
Beyoncé apparently had something better to do than entertain you at Coachella. Fine. You’ll just drop in on JW Marriott’s tribute party. The pool will have a spiked lemonade stand, the DJ will be dropping her tunes, and you’ll take everything in from a street taco pop-up. Despite its sorta tenuous Beyoncé connection.
It’s a Burger. A Dodger Dog Burger.
Dodger games. You’re going for Kershaw’s curve and Gonzalez’s swing. But if one of the stadium’s new beer-sauced burgers topped with Dodger dogs happened to fall into your hand, you’d accept it. And if you also happened to find yourself at the new loaded tater tot stand... well, that should probably just happen.
Easter Brunch, Just With More Peruvian Ribs
There’s nothing that says Easter brunch can’t be made out of Peruvian baby backs and ceviche at Picca. Or enjoyed on Momed’s newly revamped patio, where this Sunday kicks off a weekly music series with a DJ playing some breezy, jazzy global stuff. You know, brunch music.
