The Weekender

20 Beers, Pork Tacos and a Huge Street Fair

The weekend is taking it to the streets.

Thursday
Ciudad's Happy Hour Blowout
MOJITOS

Ciudad's Happy Hour Blowout

Happy hour's five hours long at Downtown's Latin hideaway tonight (that means half-off mojitos and margs until 9pm), and you'll get a carnitas taco and mojito on the house if you buy your ticket to Taste of the Nation while you're there. Where more tacos await.

May 20, 4-9pm, Ciudad, 445 S Figueroa St (at Fifth), 213-486-5171

La Brea's New Drinking Deal
ANTI-RUSH HOUR

La Brea's New Drinking Deal

And speaking of happy hour, the Tar Pit finally has one—and it's every day. Your $6 Brown Derby (bourbon, honey, grapefruit) will arrive with $2.50 fries. Then, tomorrow, maybe some $5 Pickled Deviled Eggs with Shaved Prosciutto. With another Brown Derby.

Friday
How to Upgrade Your Next Picnic Date
OUTDOOR WINE

How to Upgrade Your Next Picnic Date

It's that time of year again, when you'll start carting wine-heavy picnic dinners to the Hollywood Bowl and the occasional cemetery with some regularity. In addition to your fine taste in merlot, you can now impress your date with your choice in high-design, completely biodegradable tableware. Hey, it's the little things...

Saturday
Silver Lake's New Street-Filling Blowout
STREET LEGAL

Silver Lake's New Street-Filling Blowout

If you think the Sunset Junction street fair has just gotten too corporate, man, there's a brand-new live-music festival clogging the streets this weekend. Cruise up to the gratis bike valet, and the rest of the day it's just you and the music. Oh, and about 40 food trucks.

The Bruery Anniversary Party
BIRTHDAY BEER

The Bruery Anniversary Party

If you're up for a little road trip, Orange County's esteemed brewery is throwing itself a sudsy birthday party this weekend, and you're invited. Instead of cake, they've got waffles, cheese, barbecue and about 20 beers on tap. We're sure you can stick candles in something.
