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.

Thursday
Bouncy House + Booze + Inappropriate Balloon Animals = This
BOUND FOR GLORY

Bouncy House + Booze + Inappropriate Balloon Animals = This

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.

May 4, 5pm-2am, no cover, Westbound, 300 S Santa Fe Ave, Downtown, 213-262-9291

You’re Here For the Bands. The Drinking’s Just a Bonus.
ZEBULON STRANGE TRIP

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.

Now open, Zebulon, 2476 Fletcher Dr, Frogtown

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.

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