The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

Coming soon to a week near you—the weekend.

Thursday
Barneys Warehouse Sale
THURSDAY THRIVING

Barneys Warehouse Sale

The sale large enough to fill an entire airport hangar is back, with stacks of clothes from every imaginable designer marked down 50-75%. Still no space for dressing rooms, though.

411: Feb 7-18, Barker Hangar at the Santa Monica Airport, 3021 Airport Ave, Santa Monica, 310-777-5700

Friday
Sex for America Reading
FRIDAY FRISKINESS

Sex for America Reading

If Super Tuesday left you all riled up, make an illicit sojourn to Skylight Books to hear editor Stephen Elliott read from his politics-themed collection of red, white and very blue erotica. Your image of Dick Cheney will be forever altered.

411: Feb 8, 7:30pm, Skylight Books, 1818 N. Vermont Ave (between Hollywood and Franklin), Los Feliz, 323-660-1175

Friday
The Austrian Winery Boom at MODAA
FRIDAY GRAPES

The Austrian Winery Boom at MODAA

Sure, you're fascinated by an exhibit exploring the unusual modernist tendencies of so many Austrian vineyards. You're also interested in a generous sampling of their products.

411: Tasting reception Feb 8, 7-11pm (exhibit on display through Mar 6), MODAA, 8609 Washington Blvd (at Cattaraugus), Culver City, free with RSVP by email or at 310-558-0902

Saturday
Bob Dylan's American Journey, 1956-1966
SATURDAY A-CHANGIN'

Bob Dylan's American Journey, 1956-1966

Making its last stop in LA before blowin' into the wind, this Dylan retrospective contains artifacts like handwritten song drafts and an unreleased recording of his first-ever concert. It may inspire you to readdress your own greatest hits.

411: Through June 8, Skirball Cultural Center, 2701 N. Sepulveda Blvd, advance timed-entry ticket purchase recommended, available here or by calling 310-440-4500

Sunday
Grammy Party at Elevate
SUNDAY SPINNING

Grammy Party at Elevate

KCRW's Jason Bentley is among the hosts of this post-Grammy bash with DJ sets from nominees like Dirty South and Jeremy Dawson. It should go well into after-hours territory, like any respectable music-industry affair.
