Sophisticated men require two things: the right drink, and deep knowledge of his city's underground offerings -- but while the former's easily acquired, the latter's elusive, especially if you're content sitting at home, slowly sipping the right drink. Fortunately, the right drink's here to help: Jameson's Insider Discoveries.
Founded in 1780 and now the world's fastest growing whiskey, Jameson's taking the savvy only a 228-year-old man of leisure could possess, and applying it to pinpointing LA's smoothest under-the-radar action.
Tapas Bar C's Bi-Weekly All-You-Can-Eat: $30 at this bordello-styled resto gets you unlimited bar food, one over-the-top specialty cocktail, and Japanese "cosplay" girls dressed up as French maids, who'll still fawn over you no matter how determined you are to "get my $30 worth". Next one's on Monday -- be there with bells on.
Free Month of Rentals from SportsKnack: Enter THRILLIST at checkout, and get a gratis month from this surfboard loaner company that works like a Netflix for those unwilling to commit to buying a board, either because they're indecisive, or terrified that taking up surfing will turn out to be a horrible mistake.
Rare Picks from a Cold War Kid: Cold War Kids bassist Matt Maust slid us nine great tunes from unknown bands, from Pink Mountaintops' relentlessly jumpy "Single Life" to Spring Hill Spider Party's "Snickerboobies", a title for which explanation is required, but probably not desired. Playlist's on 8tracks.com -- get down on it.
Oxygen's Tattoo Contest: There are tat contests, and then there are tat contests put on by spots billing themselves as the Hard Rock Cafe of the adult entertainment industry. Show off your own bodywork, and you could win DVD prizes -- or, more likely, be asked to sign a waiver promising that if you ever do make a naughty movie, you'll keep your shirt on.
