Things to do for June 14, 2017

First the Cannabis, Then the Virtual Reality

Oh, and Then a Sunday of Grilling, Bands and Beer Under the Sun

By Hadley Tomicki

Wednesday
Not Just Any Old Lunchtime Tempura
THIS IS THE ENDO

Not Just Any Old Lunchtime Tempura

No, don’t be silly. This is Beverly Hills’ fancy tempura specialist Endo we’re talking about. So expect lunch to be filled with delicate fried morsels of caviar, Japanese beef and prized sea creatures. Or release yourself from expectations. Your call.

Mon-Fri, noon-3pm, Tempura Endo, 9777 Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills, 310-274-2201

Thursday
So Deliciously Temporary, You Almost Can Taste It
POP CULTURE

So Deliciously Temporary, You Almost Can Taste It

Gargantua. It only sounds like a Marvel villain. Factually, it’s a pop-up from Mattei’s Tavern vet Nick Barainca. You’ll find it three nights a week at the OP Café serving five-course menus that include green garlic bread with air-dried beef and BBQ pork with leeks. Nothing diabolical about that.

Saturday
Unlimited Cannabis + Virtual Reality = Good Sense
HIGH MAINTENANCE

Unlimited Cannabis + Virtual Reality = Good Sense

Here’s the premise behind Downtown’s Virtual Reality Elevated. Show up. Enjoy unlimited cannabis vape tastings and infused treats. Notice you’re feeling pretty high. Tinker around with virtual reality games and see some 3D art. Notice you’re feeling pretty high.

June 17, 8pm-midnight, $45-$95, Downtown location revealed 24 hours before event, tickets here

Sunday
Beer, Meat and the Man Who Bore you
BREAKING DAD

Beer, Meat and the Man Who Bore you

Father’s Day 2017. Dad has earned beer and meat. You’ll find that unusual combination together at a beer pairing dinner at Gwen that night with dishes like stinging nettle ravioli with a Massachusetts saison. And at Mikkeller Bar over octopus salad with a Chardonnay barrel-aged trippel. You’re a good kid.

Bands, Barbecue and a Major Body of Water
TERRANEA FIRMA

Bands, Barbecue and a Major Body of Water

Terranea will celebrate Sunday with a party on its cliffside meadows. Expect bands, lots of grilled food, good beer and ocean views. And if you can think of a better way to spend a summer day, there’s really nothing more we can do for you over here.

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