Labor Day: imminent. But summer isn't over yet. Not by a long shot. Especially if these beautiful single-speed Solé Bicycles from sunny California have anything to say about it. And if Perks has anything to say about it, which it does, you're not paying full price.
Things to do for August 23, 2017
First, Wolfgang Puck Gets Tiki Fever
Then, a Roller-Skating Legend Rides AgainBy Hadley Tomicki
A James Beard Winner Hits the Promenade
It's now time to secure reservations for the September 5 opening of Dialogue, a 3rd Street Promenade-based tasting menu restaurant from Dave Beran, the James Beard-winning former executive chef of Chicago's Next. Otherwise, someone else may eat your pretty little dinner.
Wolfgang Puck, Struck With Tiki Fever
When you bring a date to Cut Lounge over the next few weeks, you'll find it has gone full Tiki on you. Suddenly there are Mai Tais and Scorpion Bowls. Malasadas and Kula Pork. Steak tartare and grilled cheese sandwiches. Those last two are considered exotic in Beverly Hills.
World on Wheels. It's Back.
Legendary local roller rink World on Wheels is back. And it looks much more 2017 than 1983. You probably want to come on weekend nights, when the kiddies go home and you can skate in circles wearing crazy, colorful outfits to Kool & the Gang. Like adults.
Five Bands, Multiple Artists and One Shiny New Museum
On Saturday, the Broad is planning one of those nighttime shindigs that museums like to hold. There will be musicians like Xiu Xiu and A Place to Bury Strangers. Plus poetry readings, interactive exhibits, performance art and access to the full museum. Yes, even that Bubbles the Chimp sculpture.
Of West Hollywood Truffle Fries and Downtown Duck
Breakfast, Sunday Morning: Smoked salmon sandwiches at new Jeremy Hotel's café,
Lunch, Sunday Afternoon: Peking duck and kung pao lobster at Downtown's LiOrient.
Cocktails, Sunday Evening: You're somehow back at the Jeremy, doing those with truffle fries at the bar, Joao.
It's also rumored that you have a real home somewhere.
What Else Is New
Taking a Bath Can Now Get You Stoned
Assuming you use this THC-infused bath bomb, of course. While you're at it, you might as well make your own blend of Johnnie Walker, and check out this week's Trump administration power rankings. You might be surprised to find out who (or what) made the list.
