One Pappy Van Winkle Dinner to Rule Them All
Or There’s Always Weird Science Set to a Live Band If You’re More Into ThatBy Hadley Tomicki
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
