Things to do for August 05, 2010

The Weekender

Burgers, Shirts and Clubbing Without Pants

The weekend is getting out of here.

Thursday
Secret Burger at Lucky Devils
OFF THE MENU

Secret Burger at Lucky Devils

Your standby Hollywood burger den has a secret new offering. Wave away the menu, which is of no use today, and confidently proclaim you’ll have the unlisted showstopper called It’s Your Lucky Day—it’s got apricot smoked cheddar, double smoked bacon and roasted pasilla pepper on Tallgrass beef for $11. Or go Kobe for $14.

Now available, Lucky Devils, 6613 Hollywood Blvd (east of Cherokee), 323-465-8259

Clubbing in Your Underwear at Playhouse
NEARLY NAKED

Clubbing in Your Underwear at Playhouse

To properly commemorate National Underwear Day (it’s today, and you’re overdressed), show up at Hollywood’s most trapeze-friendly club around 10pm tonight in your finest skivvies—and only your finest skivvies—and you’ll be treated to an open vodka bar until 11. All that’s left is to figure out where to keep your wallet.

Aug 5, 10pm, no clothes = no cover, Playhouse, 6506 Hollywood Blvd, 323-656-4600

Friday
Tavern Gets a Happy Hour
$3 WINE

Tavern Gets a Happy Hour

Stop and think about the last time you used “Brentwood” and “happy hour” in the same sentence. (Hint: It was never.) Well, at long last, your neighborhood Tavern has come through—think $3 beers, $5 wines and $8 mojitos every afternoon. We’re proud of you, Brentwood.

Mon-Fri, 3-6pm, Tavern, 11648 San Vicente Blvd, Brentwood, 310-806-6464

Sunday
All-Night Happy Hour at Vertical
CHEERS

All-Night Happy Hour at Vertical

Maybe you’re a Foursquare person, maybe you’re not. But if you check in on Foursquare when you’re at the Rose Bowl Flea Market and then do the same at nearby wine bar Vertical afterward, you’ll be privy to an all-night happy hour with $5 beers, vodka-spiked Blueberry Lemonades ($7) and a $10 Short Rib Burger.

Second Sunday of every month starting Aug 8, 5pm-midnight, Vertical Wine Bistro, 70 N Raymond Ave, Pasadena, 626-795-3999

Monday
Summer Sale at Steven Alan Outpost
SALE ON SALE

Summer Sale at Steven Alan Outpost

If you’ve been by the Outpost, you know this is the covert home for piles and piles of well-cut plaid shirts discounted and priced to move. But if you swing by on Monday, everything will be an extra 25% off. So it’s like a sale within a sale—the sartorial equivalent of Inception. Or Full Frontal, if you ever saw that movie.
