MNF season kicks off tonight with two games. There's still time to formulate an escape plan from work. Or a perfectly delivered comeback.
….Three Tequila, Floor: Mercado (pictured) Open now
With a cool wooden leather hybrid motif, exposed front dining area, and signature tequila room, Mercado's East-of-the-405 location is uniquely its own. Somebody pass the salt, stat.
7910 W. 3rd St., Beverly Grove (323-944-0947)
Forever Freshman: Rusty Mullet Open now
Flatscreens. Five dollar shots. Freshman year? Nope! It's Hollywood's newest sports bar. Binge on booze and sports in a trendy, New York-y space (think exposed brick).
1708 N. Las Palmas Ave., Hollywood (323-464-7678)
Facelift: La Dolce Vita Now re-opened
The Beverly Hills classic gets a modern update — complete with a hush-hush new bar program and menu. Power lunches just got more interesting.
9785 Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills (310-278-1845).
Closing Time: Opening Ceremony's 70% Off Sale
Score Christopher Kane's space-age sweaters and OC's own leather loafers at the hip retailer's end-of-season sale.
