Coocepts uses state-of-the-art 3D printing to make really cool wireless lamps that look like lit-up moons, dandelions and city skylines. The moon lamps will definitely come in handy should you be interested in recreating last week’s eclipse. Or just interested in creating some extra reading light.
Things to do for August 30, 2017
A Block Party With Doug E. Fresh and Talib Kweli
Three Days of Donuts, Rap Legends and New RestaurantsBy Hadley Tomicki
First, Fried Chicken. Later, a Spirits Cart.
Lunch, Thursday: Visit McFly's, a daytime experience at Electric Owl offering fried chicken
sandwiches, pink lemonade and tater tots.
Dinner, Thursday: Hit Gesso from the Superba/Pitfire team, for the beautiful room, vintage spirits cart, octopus putanesca, dry-aged ribeye and white clam pizza.
You can do stuff in between, of course.
A Jean-Georges Vet Enters Abbot Kinney
Oh, look. Now you're at Neighbor, a new restaurant and bar on Abbot Kinney. And you and a date look to be tucking into a mezcal drink and some lamb saddle vadouvan made by a Jean-Georges vet. That's so you.
A Weekend of Rap Legends and Rap Donuts
You considered leaving town this weekend. Then you heard that Delicious Pizza on Sunset is hosting Dilla's Donuts, a J Dilla-inspired pop-up from Detroit's Dilla's Delights. And how Talib Kweli is playing free with Doug E. Fresh at their other location on Sunday. Probably one too many Dilla's in there.
Paris Has Landed. With Pants.
Things you'll see at Downtown's new clothing store, 13 Bonaparte:
1) Microfiber swim shorts.
2) Rare art and photo books.
3) A neon lamp and leather chairs.
4) Teflon and denim jackets.
5) Dead people. No, wait. Alive people.
Meet We Have Noodles. They Have Noodles.
There's a Nomad vet inside this new Silver Lake place helping to provide you and your (possibly not-sober) friends with variations on the noodle world's greatest hits. Like Thai khao soi, beef belly pho and Serrano ham ramen. And maybe they'll do Freebird.
What Else Is New
The Seven TV Shows We're Looking Forward to Most Are...
...all right here in this convenient roundup. You should also know that the real-life version of Jay Gatsby's fictional mansion is up for sale. And that we brainstormed new strains of marijuana based on Netflix shows. That was fun.
