PERK

1 New Perk

Now that your winter hibernation is officially over, we've set you up with a comped week at the gym, along with a gratis personal training session thrown in on the side. Soon, you will be invincible.

Sunday
Bottomless Champagne at the London
BRUNCH

Bottomless Champagne at the London

Whether or not you celebrate Easter, you do celebrate bottomless champagne and Bloody Marys, enjoyed outside on a roof-like surface. On Sunday, the London's Hampton Courtyard will be overstuffed with sushi, risotto, cheese, eggs, steak Benedict, caramel cheesecake—and as many drinks as you need to wash it all down.

Apr 4, 11:30am-3pm, $85, The London WH, 1020 N San Vicente Blvd, 310-358-7788

Sunday Roast at Ammo
ROAST

Sunday Roast at Ammo

To finish off every weekend starting with this one, Ammo is going traditional with an old-school roast with appetizer and dessert. The inaugural offering: Spring Lamb with Basil, Peas and Mint. So we guess you could say March did go out like a lamb...

Sundays starting Apr 4, $32, Ammo, 1155 N Highland Ave, Hollywood, 323-871-2666

Monday
Dinner Comes to Mendocino Farms
SANDWICH

Dinner Comes to Mendocino Farms

One of your favorite Downtown lunch spots has something unprecedented in store: dinner. To kick off the new extended hours, they've created a Celebration Supper Sandwich. It's slow-roasted brisket on ciabatta for $8.75, available April 5 to 9 only.

New hours (Mon-Fri, 11am-7pm) start Apr 5, Mendocino Farms, 444 S Flower St, 213-627-3262

Hot Dog Night at BLD
BATTER UP

Hot Dog Night at BLD

In conjunction with the Dodgers' Opening Day, BLD is going the Americana route with a high-end hot dog plate—the dog, bun, relish, ketchup, mustard, sauerkraut and warm Beer-Battered Onion Rings are all made in-house. It's sort of like a Dodger dog, only the opposite.

Apr 5, 5pm, $18 for two ($15 for one), BLD, 7450 Beverly Blvd (at Vista), 323-930-9744

Wednesday
Sliders and Wine at Umami
TASTING

Sliders and Wine at Umami

Umami Burger is commemorating its new outpost at Fred Segal in Santa Monica with an evening of wine pairings from wine-man-about-town David Haskell—three sliders, plus three glasses of wine, for $35. Just don't get any vino on the merchandise…

Apr 7, seatings at 6pm and 9pm, Umami Burger, 500 Broadway, Santa Monica, 310-451-1300
