A Weekend With NoMad's Brunch and David Bowie's Beautiful Visage

Oh, and a Place Where You Pour Your Own Beers and Cocktails

By Hadley Tomicki

Wednesday
A Shave and a Haircut. Two Drinks.
BLIND FAITH

A Shave and a Haircut. Two Drinks.

Blind Barber just opened a new location in Highland Park. In the front, you'll get haircuts and shaves. In the back, it's a speakeasy inspired by Burt Reynolds' character's pad in Boogie Nights, with Batman cocktails and over 20 varieties of grilled cheese. But God, that haircut.

Thursday
A New Gin Destination Arises Off Sunset
LONDON CALLING

A New Gin Destination Arises Off Sunset

The London West Hollywood has a new gin-focused bar right off its lobby. It's a beautiful, buzzing place called the London Bar, where gold-flaked martinis appear from rolling gin carts and the procurement of negronis and Pimm's Cups is definitely encouraged. Take them up on that.

Friday
A Visual Bowie Retrospective at a Notoriously Rocking Hotel
SPACE ODDITY

A Visual Bowie Retrospective at a Notoriously Rocking Hotel

David Bowie. Singer. Songwriter. Actor. Subject of amazing photography that you're going to bring a date to check out this week, as Morrison Hotel Gallery opens a vast retrospective on the late, great rocker. That David Bowie.

Saturday
About the Day You Invented Kombucha-Coffee-Bourbon-Beer...
POUR DECISIONS

About the Day You Invented Kombucha-Coffee-Bourbon-Beer...

Sure, Tom's Urban likes you. Still, it's giving you the option to mix your own drinks on its new U-Pour Floor. Simply head upstairs and go crazy playing with 50 taps containing cocktails, wine, beer, cider, kombucha and nitro coffee. And yes, you may mix freely.

Sunday
Suckling Pig Burritos. Oh, NoMad, You're So Crazy.
NOMAD MAD MAD MAD WORLD

Suckling Pig Burritos. Oh, NoMad, You're So Crazy.

Let the games begin. "Games" meaning brunch service at NoMad. "Begin" as in you and some friends getting in this weekend for suckling pig breakfast burritos and Bloody Marys with amontillado sherry and hot peppers. "Let" should be more self-explanatory.

Sat-Sun starting Feb 24, 11am-3pm, NoMad, 649 S Olive St, Downtown, 213-358-0000
