Every week, there's one very special hour more magical than all the rest—and no, we do not refer to the televised spine-snappings on Wipeout. We refer to the hour at Wilshire when all martinis—we repeat, all martinis—are just one dollar.
Things to do for July 23, 2009
Garden Romping, Dripping Pork and Tequila Three-Peat
The weekend is skinny-dipping in your pool.
The Piano Bar Reborn
There's still a piano. There's still a bar. But the new owners of this ancient just-off-Cahuenga spot have quietly given it an otherwise comprehensive fancy-goth makeover. You can't see much of it, since the lights are down so low. But it's nice. We think.
National Tequila Day at Mexico
In honor of National Tequila Day, this eye-raisingly colorful new restaurant from the owner of Nic's has a three-course special for $25. Watermelon, shrimp and a Mexican chocolate ice cream sundae all incorporate the honored spirit one way or another. Mention UrbanDaddy, and the first round of Guavalove Margaritas is on them. Salud.
After some gratis hors d'oeuvres and champagne in the garden, head back inside Romp for an 80 percent off sample sale for women and men—among the goods, you'll find an organic leather jacket marked down from $1250 to $290. Still just as organic.
