A New Dinner Destination From the Creator of Ketchup Leather

Ernesto Uchimura, the inventor of Plan Check’s menu and ketchup leather, opens Electric Owl tomorrow in the still-recognizable Gardner Junction space. There, he’s going to serve you crab legs on cucumber ice, hand-rolled cavatelli and cacio e pepe potatoes. So you’ll forgive him for stealing your band name.

Opens Apr 20, Electric Owl, 1451 N Gardner Ave, 323-545-6565

Friday
Tom Waits Cocktails, Chocolate Jesus and All
HEAVEN CAN WAITS

Tom Waits Cocktails, Chocolate Jesus and All

First, drinking inspired Tom Waits. Now, Tom Waits is inspiring the drinks on Salt’s Cure’s 10-strong cocktail menu named after songs by America’s junkyard bard. Among them are the gin-and-violet Drunk on the Moon and the rummy Chocolate Jesus. Take notes, Cadbury.

Available now at Salt’s Cure, 1155 N Highland Ave, Hollywood, 323-465-7258

Wu-Tang, Weed Drones and Corey Feldman
HIGH MAINTENANCE

Wu-Tang, Weed Drones and Corey Feldman

You could be at Coachella watching Bon Iver and Future. Or you could be at Cannabis Cup, an event that promises weed drones, an edibles village and performances by Wu-Tang, Nas, Damian Marley and... Corey Feldman’s band. You’ll know which event is right for you based on everything we just said.

Saturday
Foie Gras Wontons. Seems So Obvious Now.
METROPOLE POSITION

Foie Gras Wontons. Seems So Obvious Now.

Five things you’ll see at Downtown’s Metropole Bar + Kitchen:

1) Tunnel-shaped booths upholstered in green velvet.
2) Foie gras wontons at dinner.
3) Pork congee and Belgian waffles at breakfast.
4) Reposado-chamomile sours at the bar.
5) A skyscraping structure called Hotel Indigo surrounding it all.

Can’t miss it.

Sunday

HUSTLE AND ROE

You Now Share a World With Caviar Frites

Available now, $36, Petrossian, 321 Robertson Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-271-6300

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