|Rock on, Neroni!|
Can you believe Superba Snack Bar is turning one? The Paul Hiller and Jason Neroni hot spot was a hit from day on Rose Avenue, and to thank everyone for their fandom, every table will get a complimentary order of s'mores during lunch, brunch and dinner this weekend, starting tonight. That's right - free dessert Thursday through Sunday. You bring the candles (533 Rose Ave.; 310-399-6400).
Now that you know Chinatown is so hot, go check it out at this month's Chinatown Summer Nights on Saturday. There's live music, DJ dance parties with KCRW's Jason Bentley, food trucks, gallery openings, cooking demos, a beer garden, myriad restaurants - including the new Starry Kitchen right in the heart of it at the Grand Star Jazz Club - and guys making dolphins out of liquid candy. And monkeys! If last month's fete was any indication, there will also be plenty of confetti. Just because. Festivities begin at 5 PM; here's the full schedule.
If you haven't been indulging in ice cream for National Ice Cream Month, or just because it's summer and hot and you want ice cream, Sunday is National Ice Cream Day. Head over to BLD for a preview of Mariah Swan's ice creams for ICDC, the forthcoming quick-stop sweet treat stop next to the Beverly Boulevard restaurant. She'll be scooping strawberry black pepper cream cheese ice cream, buttermilk chocolate marble and cinnamon marshmallow as a supplement for the DineLA menu (yes, DineLA Restaurant Week is still happening!) (7450 Beverly Blvd.; 323-930-9744).
