Crustacean's Back. And Things Are Different Now.

It was a tough year. Yeah sure, the world and everything. But we meant the lack of Crustacean, which finally just reopened with a new look and dishes like tuna air-bread nigiri, Japanese steak cooked on salt blocks and duck potstickers. The garlic noodles endure. By law, they can't be touched.

You, a Date and 100 Emerging Artists in Downtown
TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE ART

You, a Date and 100 Emerging Artists in Downtown

Maybe you'll spend this weekend just sort of staring at the walls. The ones filled with pieces from 100 emerging artists at the Other Art Fair, which takes over the Majestic Thursday through Sunday. Ah-ha, a twist.

Friday

SOLE MAN

80% Off Shoes and Boots You Could Frame

When your friends move, they usually don't give you 80% off their beautiful handmade shoes and boots. But that's what Esquivel is doing all through the weekend before relocating its showroom to a new address. You need more friends like this.

Mar 16-17, 10am-5pm, Mar 18, 11am-6pm, Esquivel Shoes, 8309 W 3rd St, 714-670-2200

Saturday
Handmade Pasta or Smoked Corned Beef, Depending on Your Irish-ness Level
THE CLOVER PARADOX

Handmade Pasta or Smoked Corned Beef, Depending on Your Irish-ness Level

Saint Patrick's Day, Culver City. You confront two opposing lunches:

1) You acknowledge the holiday and hit Maple Block BBQ for house-smoked corned beef with charred cabbage and potatoes.
2) You ignore said holiday, visiting the new Helms Bakery location of Pasta Sisters for mortadella sandwiches and spaghetti with clams.

You can run...

Drink Deeply of LA's Own Wine

Good Housekeeping is currently serving a menu of wines made in Los Angeles. Among the list is SuperBloom, a white blend from Angeleno Wine Company, and a red made with LA-grown grapes by local Byron Blatty. In other news, people make wine in Los Angeles.

What Else Is New

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
