Things to do for May 10, 2017
A One-Night Cocktail Pop-Up That Could Scar You Permanently
Oh, and a Sunday With MomBy Hadley Tomicki
Have a Drink. The Tattoo Is Optional.
A forthcoming cocktail concept called Drink Special makes its one-night debut on Thursday. Expect libations like a cacao-infused vodka with Darjeeling, fig bitters and Sundip Pakistani syrup. And a guy named Popeye giving people $15 custom tattoos. So you’ll remember when someone asks what you did this weekend.
“Looking Sharp.” That’s What They’ll Say.
Starting Friday, Billy Reid will have its handsome collection of button-downs, shorts and jeans at Culver City’s Magasin for the month. They’re even going full made-to-measure Friday and Saturday. Meanwhile, Stag Venice has filled its loft with Rogue Territory’s fetching denim. They did this just for your attention.
The Petersen Puts on Its Party Pants
The Petersen has something to prove: that it can stay open after-hours on Friday like other cool museums. That it can have a DJ and drinks move the crowd. And that it isn’t afraid to open its underground vault for explorations of some good-looking Italians. Cars, of course.
A New Arena of Freshly Baked Breakfast-ery
Friends & Family. That’s East Hollywood’s new spot where some Campanile vets have freshly baked breads, Danishes, pies and cakes at the ready anytime you may need them. Plus cold beer and hot sandwiches at lunch. You have to pay, but still, it’s nice of them.
Do It for Mom
Sunday with mom: A four-course brunch with lobster rolls, roast beef popovers, mimosas and
potential Curtis Stone views at Gwen.
Sunday without mom: A booze-forward afternoon screening of Mommie Dearest in the Ace’s gorgeous theater.
What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her.
