Things to do for December 20, 2017
Bowling, Live Models and Mexican Elvis
Happy Holidays, IndeedBy Hadley Tomicki
A Caffeinated Staple Travels West
Coffee Commissary has a new location in Santa Monica. So now you have a small corner café like the ones in Hollywood for your cappuccinos and pastries. Soon to be filled with cool, good-looking people with pressing Facebook statuses to check.
Hot Chocolate, Live Salsa and Enviable Pompadours
Friday Night. You have two choices: hit Union Station's Cocoa Series for the hot chocolate bar and live salsa. Or go see legendary performer El Vez put his Mexican-American crooner's spin on some holiday classics at the Echo. Okay, you may have other options, too.
Vintage Bowling, Pizza and Cocktails: A Christmas Tradition Is Born
You're not the type to sit indoors and watch the Yule log all day. Which is exactly why Highland Park Bowl is offering all-night happy hour on Christmas Eve and Christmas day, yielding you $5 mini-pizzas, $6 beers and cocktails, and $25 lanes. They didn’t bother to wrap any of that, but hey.
Your Art Is Fueled by Ale
The birth of a savior isn't shutting down Angel City Brewery. It will be open on Christmas and collaborating with Drinky Draw. Meaning there will be live models for you to paint while you try a few new beers. In case the words "drinky draw" sound like something we made up.
The Part of the Holidays With Whiskey and Horses
Maybe you're not going to get what you asked for this year. Not to worry, Tuesday is opening day at Santa Anita on Tuesday. Which means you can spend the afternoon betting on horses and drinking whiskey amid live music and bourbon-braised meatballs. Santa's elves worked particularly hard on this.
What Else Is New
The Trump Administration Panic Power Rankings Are Back
Find out who (or what) nabbed the top spot. Then, if you feel so inclined, read about the most perfect union between Sufjan Stevens's music and Oscar frontrunner, Call Me By Your Name. Oh, and here's a Shakespearean sonnet composed for the drunken goddess of MTV's Floribama Shore. It's the first of its kind. And probably the last.
