Things to do for May 03, 2017
Bouncy House + Cocktails = This Party
And, Yes, the Balloon Animals Will Be InappropriateBy Hadley Tomicki
A Restaurant/Magazine and an All-Day Breakfast Spot
Thursday: You visit Botanica, Silver Lake’s new restaurant that’s also a market and a
food magazine. There are lamb kebabs in at least one.
Monday: Thumbing your nose at convention, you eat griddle cakes at 8pm. Because Salt’s Cure has a new place serving griddle cakes at 8pm.
Things you’ll encounter at Westbound’s first birthday party:
1) A bouncy house.
2) Cotton candy.
3) Conceivably inappropriate balloon animals.
4) Drinks. A lot of drinks.
Just in case the whole age-appropriateness of this was in question.
You’re Here For the Bands. The Drinking’s Just a Bonus.
Zebulon. Sounds like that inevitable extraterrestrial overlord we’ve all been waiting on. But alas, it’s actually a new live performance venue by way of Brooklyn that’s now open in Frogtown. Sorry.
Horses, Juleps and Seersucker, Right This Way
The Kentucky Derby. It’s Saturday. And Manuela’s going to do it right. As in, dress-in-seersucker-and-spend-the-afternoon-with-juleps-and-Pimms-cups-plus-food-with-prizes-for-people-who-pick-the-winning-horse right. Yep, that right.
The Dodger Dog Is Turning Japanese
Tsubaki is taking everything it knows about fancy Japanese food (read: a lot) and applying it to your Dodger Dogs. The result is a stadium-adjacent chicken sausage with shishito relish, Kewpie and cabbage slaw on brioche. Try one before the next game. It may just save you from the real thing.
