Things to do for October 04, 2017
Beer. Tacos. Sometimes It's Just That Simple.
And Fred Segal Is Back, Which Isn't InsignificantBy Hadley Tomicki
Beer and Tacos. No Need to Overthink It.
No matter where you are right now, one truth applies: beer with tacos sounds great. Angel City will test the strength of this theory tonight, pairing special brews to three tacos from Downtown Taco Co. Will you enjoy the wild boar taco with a double IPA? The odds are in your favor.
It's the Princess Bride. With a Real Ocean.
Princess Bride just turned 30 and the Santa Monica Pier will celebrate by showing it on a 52-foot-wide inflatable movie screen so you can watch while sitting on beach chairs over the ocean. Expect food and drinks, of course. Oh, and an Oscar-worthy turn by Andre the Giant.
Helping the Island, One Dish at a Time
Starting Saturday, over 100 LA chefs and mixologists will offer exclusive dishes and drinks, with 100% of the proceeds going to relief efforts in Puerto Rico. We're talking about spots like Lucques, Trois Mec, Kali and Felix. Big hearted places.
One Big Ol' Filipino Food Fest
Your life is about to become a blur of ube donuts, lechon waffle fries and rich adobo. It's likely due to the Filipino Food Festival taking over in Eagle Rock this weekend, but we're only just starting to tinker with this power of prophecy.
Fred Segal. On Sunset. Minds: Blown.
Well, well, look who's back. It's Fred Segal, now occupying an enormous slice of prime Sunset/La Cienega space. And he's brought his new Originals line and San Francisco's Tartine with him, alongside all the denim, bespoke shoes and emerging brands you already know him for. That guy.
What Else Is New
Could Adam Sandler Win an Oscar?
We're referring, naturally, to the comedic actor's dramatic turn in arguably the best Netflix original movie to date, The Meyerowitz Stories. Other things to read this week: 1) Our chat with Pulitzer prize-winning author Jeffrey Eugenides about his new book; and 2) an essential guide to building a great home bar.
