FROM PERKS

            If These Cufflinks Could Talk

A list of major events for which these vintage cufflinks have been around:
—The invention of antibiotics.
—WWII.
—Lunar landing.
—Fall of the Berlin Wall.
—Being fortunate enough to keep your dress shirt cuffs together.
Yeah, they’ve seen it all.

Thursday

FOR THOSE ABOUT TO RAKU

            Yes, That’s Kobe in Your Bento Box

Tomorrow, La Cienega’s eminent Raku won’t be like it was today. Because it will suddenly start serving
you lunch. And there will be charcoal-grilled pork cutlets, Kobe-graced bento boxes and soba noodles. That
was not a haiku.

SOLE MATES

            A Leather Sneaker. From a Hollywood Hotel.

Shoemaker Clae and Parisian/Hollywood hotel Mama Shelter are coming out with a sneaker on Thursday.
They’re white, waxed, full-grain leather, and the tongue depicts a fist that says “Mama ‘Hearts’
You.” So, serious bonus points with the person who gave you life.

Friday

PLAYBOY MEETS WORLD

            When Playboy Gets Artsy...

Playboy is collaborating with Chinatown’s Slow Culture gallery on a big group art show in
September. They’ll start with a party on Friday, previewing the work of featured illustrators,
photographers and tattoo artists. Expect big things out of these publishing upstarts in the future.

Saturday

WHAT’S AT STEAK

            Oaxacamole. Oaxacamole. That’s Just Fun to Say.

Marcel Vigneron’s new Melrose restaurant, Beefsteak, is 100% vegetarian. Except when it’s not. Like when
you choose to add Korean short ribs to your Oaxacamole bowl or get Scottish salmon slipped into your Catalan
brussels sprouts. Then it’s not.

Sunday

SCREEN PLAY

            Wine, David Bowie, You and Others

Frank Lloyd Wright was a genius. Take his Hollyhock House in Barnsdall Park. Had he not made room for a
lawn, you wouldn’t be sitting on it, drinking wine, hearing classically arranged Bowie tunes from a string
band and watching Ziggy Stardust on an outdoor screen on Sunday. The horror.

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