Scum & Villainy stays
Hollywood’s semi-secretive unaffiliated Star Wars bar, Scum & Villainy, is sticking around. The place has been doing a quiet run for a few months now to those who previously purchased tickets, but has decided to open up the lines for more seats through the end of June.
For $50 (or more) a head, guests get the chance to dress up and hang out at a loose approximation of Mos Eisley Cantina, with two drink tokens and a small souvenir included. As some have been noting online, the overall experience is perhaps a bit less “immersive” than claimed, but for anyone looking to hang out with like-minded Star Wars fans, grab a couple of drinks, and hang out near a fog machine in Hollywood, it could be worth your time.
This Sunday it’s a burger throwdown at Smorgasburg in Downtown. Along with beef and bun combos being made by weekly vendors like Locol and the Nomad Truck, you’ll also find names like Burgerlords and the Ramen Burger operating for the weekend.
Hotville Chicken does daytime
Looks like a limited lunch run for Hotville Chicken, the relatively new Chinatown Nashville-style hot chicken pop-up from a descendent of the famed Prince’s family line. This Friday’s lunch starts at noon and runs until 6 p.m. It’s not permanent, but the plan is to keep expanding hours and hopefully find a permanent home of their own.
A new name for Sawtelle
Looks like Sawtelle Japantown is getting another name in Asian dining, as Tasty Noodle House is reportedly lining up to be the next tenant for the former Restaurant 2117 space. Signage is already up, says a tipster, which marks another quick new location following the news of their West Third arrival as well.
Spitz hits the streets
Döner kebab operation Spitz is getting into the mobile game, with a shiny new truck to call their own. To christen the thing, they’re throwing a Saturday party in front of Eagle Rock Brewing all day, from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Speaking of the Nomad team, the powder blue truck is turning into June with a new collaboration chicken burger from chef Michael Voltaggio. The rig will be slingin’ the banh mi take from their truck in front of Ink on June 1 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., with proceeds going to No Kid Hungry/Share Our Strength.
