Elegantly Wasted / Drink Your Salad

Tortoise Grater

A Japanese grater, nécessaire when concocting flora-infused cocktails where fiber must be separated from juice (ginger, lemon grass and the like).

Angelenos Who Kill By Air and Ground / Omen

Most Angelenos and all hawks only attack prey on the ground. Falcons, skyscraper-dwelling Peregrine falcons in particular, also annihilate living things that fly. Like pigeons. On Speedway. And they'll look you in the eye before they take flight, talons buried in the winged rat's breast, off to the aerie atop a steel tower for supper.
Yeah, that's pretty much it.
