When it comes to blazers: always trust the Italians. Especially the good people at Gemelli, who fashion their blazers from the finest virgin wool and include elegant details like subtle gold thread windowpanes and paisley silk linings. When it comes to getting you 60% off of those blazers: always trust Perks.
Things to do for November 29, 2017
A 1,300-Pound Gingerbread Bar, Is All
Plus, All Kinds of Fun at the Museum of FailureBy Hadley Tomicki
Drinking Amid 1,300 Pounds of Gingerbread
Gingerbread houses are okay. 1,300-pound gingerbread bars sitting in the lobby of the JW Marriott are better. Especially when they feature bar tools and bottles made from candy and cookie dough and intend to serve you punch from a disco ball. Only then are they worthy of your patronage.
A Vintage Airstream Full of Handsome Gifting Potential
You're holiday shopping at the Grove. First, you score a Cronut. Then, you stroll over to a huge Airstream PanAmerica trailer packed with Aether's jackets, shirts, sweaters and bags. At which point, you buy something for someone. And maybe something for yourself. Because you made the trip.
The Museum of Failure Is Coming
The Ford Edsel. Clear Pepsi. The Segway. These are the kinds of things you'll explore at Sweden's Museum of Failure, which is arriving in Downtown this Saturday. In addition to exhibits on history's greatest mistakes, there's also a confession booth for recording your own failures. Hypothetically.
An Important Noma Vet Comes to Cook at Alma
Mads Refslund is coming to Alma. If that sentence failed to move you, it'd probably be important to mention that he helped run this Danish place called Noma. Here, he'll be looking at our own native ingredients to add la carte dishes to Ari Taymor's menu. Right, that Mads Refslund.
NoMad Lends Its Bar Staff to the Walker Inn
Soon, the full Nomad hotel will be in Downtown LA. Until then, you've got the NoMad Bar popping up at the Walker Inn every Sunday, Monday and Tuesday with seasonal drinks and holiday surprises. No, you may not sit on bar director Leo Robitschek's lap. But at least you asked.
What Else Is New
Emily Ratajkowski Is Now a Professional Spaghetti Wrestler
Well, sort of. She's featured in this advent calendar that's chock-full of supermodels. Totally unrelated: we've got another edition of the Trump administration power rankings right here. And a far-too-detailed breakdown of The Avengers: Infinity Wars trailer, because... just because.
