Oscar Winners and Cult Classics High Above La Cienega

I, Tonya. Black Panther. The Shape of Water. Princess Bride. Coming to America. There may actually come a point this summer when you're spending more time on the roof of E.P. & L.P. watching great movies than you are at home. Your place just lacks an open-sky theater, is all.

Welcome Rappahannock to Downtown. Once You Can Say Rappahannock.

Downtown isn't exactly the Chesapeake Bay. But now it's got oysters from the estuary's Virginia farms. At Rappahannock Oyster Bar, a lovely slice of the Eastern Seaboard where chef Nick Erven will oversee your bivalves, po'boys, lobster rolls and fried chicken sandwiches. You just be you.

One-Night Only: 25% of Vintage Trouble, Live in Beverly Hills

To inform you that he's performing his album of fresh American jazz standards live, presented by For the Record, and that we put aside tickets for you? Our honor and duty.
