The Hungry Cat does a clambake

To celebrate their 11th year in business, Hollywood’s own Hungry Cat is planning a real-deal clambake for March 8. Chef David Lentz will be doing a $65 shared bamboo steamer full of lobster, crab, steamers, mussels, shrimp, and more, while cocktails are $5 all day long.

Silver Lake's latest coffee spot

Remember Nana's Eatery? The unassumingly small spot on Hyperion is up and running per this Yelp page, which shows off the very no-nonsense interior. There's also more than just coffee, with a slew of salads and lunchtime stuff, plus pressed juices.

Ozu East gets down tomorrow

Atwater Village newcomer Ozu East Kitchen is getting just a bit hipper tomorrow, with the introduction of a turntable and the ability for guests to bring in a record of their choosing and have it played. Apparently they’ll also be playing a Bruce Lee movie, so you can eat and listen and watch and enjoy, all at once. Hours run 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. for the party.
