PUBLIC AFFAIR

Where Pastrami Burgers and Football Collide

Yes, L.A. now has a football team. And, yes, you're still looking for a place to watch football with pastrami burgers, steak frites and cocktails inspired by fruit carts. So consider it auspicious that Woodland Hills' new Geezer's Public House has all of that. You just had to stay true to your vision.

Friday
We All Scream for Whiskey Ice Cream
THE WHEAT IS ON

We All Scream for Whiskey Ice Cream

There's no easy way to say this. Jeni's Splendid has a new whiskey-and-pecan ice cream. It's made with a single-origin, soft red wheat whiskey from Ohio. And toasted pecans. You can find it online or at any of their scoop shops. Okay, that was way easier than anticipated.

Saturday
It's Oktoberfest. In the Middle of the Track.
AMERICAN HORSE STORY

It's Oktoberfest. In the Middle of the Track.

Things you'll see at Santa Anita's trackside Oktoberfest this weekend:

1) Dirndls.
2) Colossal steins of beer.
3) German oompah bands.
4) Considerable spaetzle and bratwurst.
5) Horse races.

Yeah, they're still doing horse races.

Sunday
Bloody Mary Cart Coming Through...
HARLOWE CAN YOU GO

Bloody Mary Cart Coming Through...

Harlowe now offers Sunday brunch, endowing you with another nice patio to gather with friends for great feasts of chilaquiles and brisket with eggs. They also have oversized Moscow mules, a bloody Mary cart and bottomless mimosas. You consider the company you keep to be quite amenable to such concepts.

Sundays, 11am-3pm, Harlowe, 7321 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, 323-876-5839, see the menu

Tuesday
Century City: Hub of Fall Handsomeness
CLOTHES CALL

Century City: Hub of Fall Handsomeness

Next time you hit Westfield Century City, you might emerge looking different. Because Moleskine opens its first LA store on Tuesday, filled with classic notebooks, bags and Smart writing tablets and planners. That same day, Suitsupply opens a shop there, too. So take a long lunch or something.
