A Critical Negroni Special Below Beverly Center

Cal Mare just went and acquired itself its very first happy hour. It's a daily, three-hour afternoon session involving pizzettas, crudo-of-the-day and $7 negronis, among other splendors. Things are starting to feel happier around here already.

A Dinner of Wagyu, Straight From the Ranch

The Bear and Star is a distinguished Los Olivos restaurant breeding its own Wagyu cattle. Tomorrow, chef John Cox joins Neal Fraser at Redbird to turn its ranch-raised meat into dishes like uni on smoked beef fat toast, Wagyu heart tartare and mincemeat donuts with marrow ice cream. Curious yet?

Friday

JEDIS WIDE SHUT

The Empire Strips Back. You Read That Right.

Sure, you could go watch Solo. Or you could hit the Ace and watch a burlesque show where scantily clad Wookies, droids and stormtroopers bump and grind in a hilarious parody of the series. Yeah, probably the latter.

Higher Standards Heads West for the Summer

NYC's Higher Standards is like the Malin & Goetz of getting high. And now, it's coming to town, teaming up with local collective the Pottery on a summer pop-up highlighting the brand's crystal accessories, cleaning products and heavy-duty glassware. Perfect for Father’s Day. Depending on the father.
