GREATS EXPECTATIONS

A Venice Home for Famous Brooklyn Sneakers

Until now, Brooklyn-born footwear brand Greats was only found online and in unrelated stores. Now, they have a big white space on Abbot Kinney all of their own, selling classic running shoes, sneakers and high-tops. All because you believed they could be a real store.

Now open, Greats, 1505 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 310-392-0033

Santa Monica Dancing Just Got a New Representative
GAME OF JONES

Santa Monica Dancing Just Got a New Representative

A new dance club called Senator Jones now exists in Santa Monica's former V-Lounge space on Wilshire. It's an improved spread of cushy white furniture surrounding a dance floor for weekend parties. Now we just have to encourage its presidential ambitions.

Soft-open Mar 2, grand-opening Mar 10, Senator Jones, 2020 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, 310-829-1933

A Taco-Eating Contest You Could Totally Take

Pez Cantina celebrates its 3rd birthday on Saturday. That means $3 tacos and beers, plus a contest giving you eight minutes to eat as many chile verde carnitas tacos as you possibly can, for prizes like a tequila gift basket. Finally, your daily practice of eating could pay off.

Mar 3, sign-ups 1pm, event 2-5pm, no cover, Pez Cantina, 401 S Grand Ave, Downtown, 213-258-2280

Sunday
Pastrami Steak and Eggs With Baller Bagels for Brunch
MORNING STAR

Pastrami Steak and Eggs With Baller Bagels for Brunch

Freedman's chef was just nominated for a James Beard Award. But that's not stopping her from bringing you the brunch you and your friends so desperately need on a weekend. So drop by for pastrami steak and eggs, babka sticky buns and "baller" bagels with caviar. Or, you know, just choose freely based on your general preferences.
