New York Lends Us Another James Beard Nominee

Chef Seamus Mullen is going to be in Hollywood tomorrow night. And while he’s here, he figured he’d cook you a Spanish-inflected meal including grilled lamb loins and all the cocktails you care to drink. He may also buy a fake Oscar for “Best Chef” while he’s at it.

An Evening of Seriously Good-Looking Cars
GET LOW

An Evening of Seriously Good-Looking Cars

You’ll want to be at the opening of “The High Art of Riding Low,” the Petersen’s new exhibit, tomorrow. It’s all about beautifully customized low-riders and tricked-out club cars. Plus, it will keep you from contributing to traffic for a few hours.

Friday
Billiards, Booze and Live Music Beneath Downtown
RHYTHM NATION

Billiards, Booze and Live Music Beneath Downtown

Below Downtown’s Hayward Manor, you’ll find Rhythm Room. That’s a new bar that has alcohol, yes, but may be as equally concerned about you having billiards, darts, chess, live bands, meatballs and shuffleboard to enjoy. So now it’s up to you to enjoy them.

Sunday
A Thai Picnic That Never Has to End
THE THAI THAT BINDS

A Thai Picnic That Never Has to End

Hopping Thai restaurant So Long, Hi is inviting you over for a family picnic on its patio this Sunday. Expect a long procession of bottomless favorites and off-menu dishes, plus buckets of beer and spicy chili margaritas. And fortuitously, no members of your actual family.

Tuesday
Two Great Parties Held at Fireworks Level
BRUTE FOURTH

Two Great Parties Held at Fireworks Level

4th of July: begin with a bash atop the Ace, promising a steady flow of poolside Motown on vinyl until the fireworks explode. Or you may choose to cut that short and hit Mama Shelter’s roof for barbecue, beer and pyrotechnics over the city. Either way, your patriotism will be noted.

July 4, 2-10pm, no cover, Upstairs Bar at Ace Hotel, 929 S Broadway, 213-623-3233, RSVP here; July 4, 6pm-close, no cover, Mama Shelter, 6500 Selma Ave, Hollywood, 323-785-6600

What Else Is New

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