ALL THE PRESIDENT'S BURGERS

Burgers Named After Presidents. Dozens of Drafts. Happy New Year.

You in 2017: Lincoln Heights really needs a spot for beers and burgers.
You in 2018: Lincoln Heights now has this new spot called Lincoln Kitchen & Tap with a penny-lined bar, daily-ground burgers named after U.S. presidents and nearly 40 drafts.
Whoever you're talking to in 2018: Martin Van Buren burgers here we come.

Hot Chicken Comes in From the Cold

Dave's Hot Chicken was once content as a mere parking lot stand that you'd hit during late Thai Town nights. Now, it's occupying its own simple, graffiti-splashed brick-and-mortar, so you can come by and get that fierce poultry anytime. Though somehow we still picture you buzzed.

A New Japanese Night Out From Zuma
JAPAN'S LABYRINTH

A New Japanese Night Out From Zuma

Japanese chain Zuma just opened Inko Nito in Downtown. It's the kind of place you'll go for robata, sake and miso soup. And the kind of place that tells you what sake and miso are on a menu full of pictograms. In case you've never eaten in LA before.

A Little Something Different to Smoke
THANK YOU FOR SMOKING

A Little Something Different to Smoke

The scent experts at the Institute for Art & Olfaction offer a unique class this Saturday on creating the perfect smoking blend. You'll work with organic botanicals while learning history and folklore about tobacco and smoking. Perfect, since weed is now legal and thus no longer fun.

We Aren't Responsible If Your Sides Split

Get this: Neal Brennan, the Emmy-nominated writing partner to Dave Chappelle, is playing a stand-up show every Tuesday with a few of his friends. Fortunately, he's choosing funny friends like David Allan Grier, Ali Wong and Judd Apatow. Maybe you guys could become friends, even.
