Little Beast: Now With Booze

You've always liked going to Little Beast for dinner. But now the restaurant has a shiny new liquor license resulting in cocktails like elderflower gimlets, rum Manhattans and maple hot toddies. So now you are allowed to like it even more.

Deconstructed Beef Wellington and Intact Cocktails

Deconstructed Beef Wellington and Intact Cocktails

You know the expression: go to Sherman Oaks' new Wood & Water for a nice dinner of oysters, crispy lobster sliders, deconstructed beef Wellington and lamb sirloin with smoky mezcal cocktails. Okay, admittedly we're trying to make it a thing.

Saturday
Pizza and Libations. Sometimes It's Just That Easy.
CRITICAL DRINKING

Pizza and Libations. Sometimes It's Just That Easy.

Close your eyes. Imagine a casual Hollywood sports bar. A place for meeting up with friends for happy hour and a pizza or garlic fries while the game is on. You're basically picturing Hollywood's new Elbow Room. Give or take a few details.

Like Entering a Living Illustration

Starting Sunday at Corey Helford Gallery, you'll find an immersive, 1960's-era flophouse fashioned from recycled cardboard to resemble a black-and-white drawing. The constructions include hundreds of objects from books to phones to entire walls to the artist's own outfits. Yes, you'll probably get "Take on Me" stuck in your head.

Sunday
The First Cajun-Hawaiian Concept in Town. Probably. Right?
IN THE MIX

The First Cajun-Hawaiian Concept in Town. Probably. Right?

And now, six things you'll find at Crackin' Kitchen, a new Cajun-Hawaiian restaurant in Pasadena:

1) Guava-soy wings.
2) Seafood tortilla pizzas.
3) Mezcal basil-cranberry juleps.
4) Bourbon-bacon mussel pots.
5) A Michelin-starred Morimoto vet overseeing everything.
6) Hyphens.
