It's been 10 years since Animal opened and it's celebrating that fact with a massive, 18-night guest chef series. They'll be doing one-off dinners with chefs like Thomas Keller, Tom Colicchio, Paul Kahan and Naomi Pomeroy. You can get your tickets 30 days in advance. Or spend eternity wondering what Keller got up to.

A Decadent Evening Cruise With an Exceptionally Specific Twist
OUT TO SEA

A Decadent Evening Cruise With an Exceptionally Specific Twist

Disco Dining Club and Our/LA are teaming up on a licentious yacht party through the Marina this weekend. Not just any licentious yacht party, but one themed after Grace Jones' character in A View to a Kill. You know, that old party theme.

What Else Is New

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
