Thursday: You visit Botanica, Silver Lake’s new restaurant that’s also a market and a
food magazine. There are lamb kebabs in at least one.
Monday: Thumbing your nose at convention, you eat griddle cakes at 8pm. Because Salt’s Cure has a new place serving griddle cakes at 8pm.
BOUND FOR GLORY
Things you’ll encounter at Westbound’s first birthday party:
1) A bouncy house.
2) Cotton candy.
3) Conceivably inappropriate balloon animals.
4) Drinks. A lot of drinks.
Just in case the whole age-appropriateness of this was in question.
ZEBULON STRANGE TRIP
Zebulon. Sounds like that inevitable extraterrestrial overlord we’ve all been waiting on. But alas, it’s actually a new live performance venue by way of Brooklyn that’s now open in Frogtown. Sorry.
The Kentucky Derby. It’s Saturday. And Manuela’s going to do it right. As in, dress-in-seersucker-and-spend-the-afternoon-with-juleps-and-Pimms-cups-plus-food-with-prizes-for-people-who-pick-the-winning-horse right. Yep, that right.
Tsubaki is taking everything it knows about fancy Japanese food (read: a lot) and applying it to your Dodger Dogs. The result is a stadium-adjacent chicken sausage with shishito relish, Kewpie and cabbage slaw on brioche. Try one before the next game. It may just save you from the real thing.
