"Cool bracelet," they'll say. "Oh, this braided leather bracelet with a gold-plated clasp? It's actually how I charge my phone," you'll reply. That entirely plausible yet completely imaginary conversation was brought to you by these USB-equipped bracelets that have no right being handsome or 40% off, but are.
Things to do for June 13, 2018
For Every Beer Fest, There Must Be a Donut Fest
And No, We Didn't Forget Soccer or Dear Old DadBy Hadley Tomicki
Achieving a Better Bacon-Cheddar-Burger-to-Falafel Balance
Imagine an upbeat world of hand-painted, 30-foot ceilings concealing a cocktail mezzanine. A place where bacon-cheddar burgers and rock shrimp po' boys peacefully coexist with black eyed pea falafels and Portobello sandwiches. You've essentially just conjured up Westwood's Fellow restaurant. Neat trick.
Early Happy Hour, All Thanks to Soccer
So, soccer. If you watch it, you'll be pleased to know that all seven Pitfire Pizza locations will start opening early to show the World Cup. And if you don't, there will be breakfast pizzas and $5 drinks until noon either way. Super convenient if you happen to like both.
Donuts: Making Old Train Stations More Relevant Again
You have an entire donut festival awaiting you at Union Station this Saturday. You'll be there, sharing donuts, fritters and churros with a date while meeting the good donut-making people of Primo's, DK's Donuts and more. We want to be like you when we grow up.
80 Breweries Just Dying to Meet You
Make sure to hit the L.A. Brewer's Kickoff on Saturday. It's the commencement of Beer Week and a chance to try incredible new beers from a gathering of 80 coveted brewers, including local splendors like Angel City's tequila barrel-aged Pineapple Saison. Your civic pride is best expressed in beer.
You, Dad and One Seriously Kickass Fried Wagyu Sandwich
It's simple. A Wagyu beef picnic. That's what you're getting your father this year. That'll go down at Tao on Sunday with Wagyu hot dogs, compressed watermelon and an A5 tenderloin katsu sandwich. And for the whole next year, that gentle beast known as dad shall proceed to nap.
What Else Is New
Who Is 'Dad'?
Exploring the man (or myth) behind "dad rock," "dad bod," "dad jeans" and other "dad" things. Also: we thought you might like to know what the best July vacation spots are. And Dave Franco has some extremely minimalist wallets for you. Yes, that Dave Franco.
