The Ultimate Pappy Van Winkle Dinner

Tickets are now available for Langley Social Club’s “Unobtanium” dinner, featuring the full lineup of Pappy Van Winkle whiskey with dinner from Barbara Jean’s Jason Fullilove. You’ll even get to try the unobtainable Pappy 25-Year. Which should make any concerns about spending $5,000 on dinner quickly dissolve.

Thursday
Weird Science Like You’ve Never Seen (Or Heard) It Before
FOR THOSE ABOUT TO LEBROCK

Weird Science Like You’ve Never Seen (Or Heard) It Before

Weird Science. It’s easily the best movie about two nerds creating a beautiful woman on their computer from the entire ’80s. And on Thursday, LACMA will show it while local rockers Kinky provide a live soundtrack. Otherwise, LACMA probably wouldn’t be showing Weird Science.

BACK IN THE SADDLE

There’s Newness Afoot at Saddle Peak Lodge

Sometimes 100-plus-year-old restaurants feel the need to shake things up. Like Saddle Peak Lodge, which is totally changing its steakhouse-y menu into more of a shareable plates situation involving an emu flat iron and shrimp poached in uni butter. Hey, as long as there’s emu.

Republique’s Getting Heavily Into Ice Cream
SCOOP, THERE IT IS

Republique’s Getting Heavily Into Ice Cream

It’s only getting hotter, but Republique has a solution. It now has an ice cream-dispensing window called the Cremerie, serving 12 rotating flavors that change each day like pistachio, gianduja and strawberry sorbet. Crazy, but it just might work.

Sunday
Mimosas and Chilaquiles, Only Different
MAGNIFICENT SEVEN

Mimosas and Chilaquiles, Only Different

It’s Sunday and you need Filipino food. Seven courses of it. So you’ll attend Rice & Shine’s pop-up brunch involving things like ube waffles, calamansi mimosas and sisig chilaquiles. Your needs are so specific and so gratifying to fulfill.

July 23, 11:30am-1:30pm, $45, Rice & Shine, Downtown location revealed with purchase
