Philippe’s + Adidas Special: Thinking of eating a French Dip on Tuesday, May 28 between 11 a.m. and 2 o’clock? Love the Dodgers? You’re in some sort of luck. For that’s the day when the first 750 customers at Philippe the Original will score a French Dip for $1.57, after they’ve registered in advance at this site (Adidas is a partner on the promotion). What’s the giveaway, which is a one-per-customer deal, all about? It’s all to honor 1957, the year “… League owners allowed Brooklyn’s baseball team to move, changing the face of Los Angeles sports forever.” Again, you’ll need to be one of the first 750 people, between 11 a.m. and 2 p.m., and you’ll want to sign up here first. Happy French Dip enjoyment, deal lovers, and enjoy the big-name guest sightings, too.
Thought Experiments in #F Minor: Music, it may be accurately said, has a way of putting a story to an unseen world, a tale that an audience member can enter through sound.

There is, at Walt Disney Concert Hall, and with the help of an iPad Mini, and headphones, you’ll find fantastical characters around the landmark during a 40-minute stroll of the augmented reality variety. Artists Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller are behind the work, which debuted earlier this year.
