A Pop-Up Flip-Flop Store Made Entirely Out of Ice
Oh, and Jean-Georges Is Making His LA Debut. Which, Significant.By Hadley Tomicki
Jean-Georges Makes His LA Debut
No, the Beverly Hilton didn’t spawn another head. That’s the Waldorf Astoria. It opens tomorrow with a big, beautiful Jean-Georges restaurant serving breakfast, lunch and dinner to guests and willing intruders. He’s also doing menus for a rooftop lounge. Hopefully Beverly Hills has acquired a taste for caviar.
The World Needs More Sushi Croissants
Saturday morning. You text a few friends to meet you at the new Larchmont location of Mr. Holmes Bakehouse. There, you introduce them to the idea of sushi croissants and blue cheese bacon Danishes. And there, you achieve a minor form of greatness in your friends’ eyes.
This Store is Melting...
It’s hot. How hot is it? So hot that... this entire Havaianas flip-flops pop-up is melting. Mostly because it’s made completely out of ice. In fact, completely because it’s made completely out of ice.
American Horror Story: the Exhibit
American Horror Story. That was once just a show you’d watch on TV. But now, it’s the biggest exhibition in the Paley Center’s history, a 4,000-square-foot journey of set pieces, costumes, props and clips to explore. But it’s also still a show.
The Puppets Have Already RSVP’d
A few things you’ll encounter at Eat Your Art Out:
2) Art from over 80 artists.
3) Psychedelic surroundings.
4) Hip-hop puppets.
5) An open bar.
There are other things, but those are the main things.

Your friend: “Wait. Book... store?”
