Seven Courses of Pronounced James Beardiness

James Beard House visits LA tomorrow to offer a taste of its legendary fêtes. With a seven-course wine dinner at Cal Mare featuring chefs Adam Sobel, Joe Sasto, Nancy Silverton, David LeFevre, Michael Voltaggio and Evan Funke with visitors Jenn Louis and Le Bernardin's Thomas Raquel. You will not require tacos on the way home.

Here's Where They've Been Hiding All the CBD Fudge Sundaes

Friday. 420. Ice cream shop Van Leeuwen will blanket its Hollywood location with Buffy's soft comforters so you can just sort of curl up and lie around while munching on the relaxing, CBD-infused fudge sundaes that it's whipping up for the occasion. Crazy plan. Just might work.

Apr 20, 2-11pm, no cover, Van Leeuwen, 5915 Franklin Ave, 323-745-0577

You and 60+ Whiskies. And... Go.
WHISKY BEHAVIOR

You and 60+ Whiskies. And... Go.

What you'll find Friday at Santa Monica's Whisky X:

—Tastings of over 60 whiskies.
—Food trucks slinging tacos, burgers and Chinese.
—Haircuts from Blind Barber.
—A cigar lounge.
—The band Dawes.
—Happiness. True, lasting happiness.

An Immersive Cannabis Banquet That Cares Not for Calendar Dates

Once 420 is over, we assume you'll still be up for anything. Like Garden of Earthly Delights, a cannabis-paired dinner inspired by the fantastically trippy work of Hieronymus Bosch. Expect cocktails, rose petal joints, cannabis gifts, immersive environments and a multicourse meal prepared by a Thomas Keller vet. Since you may be hungry.

Apr 21, 5pm-midnight, $150, private West Adams address announced with purchase, use passcode EDEN to get tickets here

You Apparently Have a Knack for Designing Ray-Bans

Ray-Ban's first LA store is now open in the Grove. Inside, you'll find hundreds of styles of classic and modern shades and eyeglasses. And in the middle, you'll find a high-tech, Minority Report-like computer table where you can design your own pair. Its ability to fight future crime is pretty limited, though.
