Enjoy Bottomless Mimosas
Hyperion Public Silver Lake
2538 Hyperion Avenue
Silver Lake, CA 90027

www.HyperionPublic.com

Who says mimosas are just for weekend brunch? Not Hyperion Public, that believes you should have the chance to say bottoms up to bottomless mimosas any day of the week. Go with a classic OJ and champagne, or mix and match five varieties to create a peach Bellini, grapefruit juice Lilosa, or unique to the restaurant, an OJ, watermelon liqueur, champagne concoction called The Rock. So, whether you brunched too hard yesterday and need a little “hair of the dog,” or you just feel like starting your week with a little sweet bubbly, Hyperion Public has you covered. The deal runs Monday – Friday from 12pm to 3pm, and weekends from 10am – 3pm, and is available at their Studio City location as well.

The Fantasticks”
The Pasadena Playhouse
39 S. El Molino Ave.
Pasadena, CA 91101
(626) 356-7529
www.pasadenaplayhouse.org

If you haven’t seen “The Fantasticks” during its run at The Pasadena Playhouse, you only have one week left! The longest running musical in history, the show is a lyrical and romantic musical that tells an allegorical love story about neighboring fathers who trick their children into falling in love. Not only do they create a fake feud between the families, but they also stage a mock abduction in order to heroically end the feud. If you find yourself saying, what could possibly go wrong, then you need to get yourself to the theater this week before it ends its run on Sunday.
