The Weekender

Cheap Sushi, Topless Protesters and a Double Happy Hour

The weekend is remixing Kanye’s remix of Bieber.

Thursday
Half Off Gourmet Burgers and 40% Off Exclusive Dopp Kits
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Half Off Gourmet Burgers and 40% Off Exclusive Dopp Kits

This week, Perks is bringing you half off your next gourmet burger delivery from BuiltBurger, the Seattle-based innovators of all things ground beef. (Mind-blowing flavors like Sriracha and Gruyère are just the beginning...) Plus: choose from three dopp kits from eShave, designed exclusively for UD readers, featuring their all-natural products and handmade razors, for 40% off. Your five o’clock shadow has been warned.

The Venice Art Crawl Debuts
CULTURE

The Venice Art Crawl Debuts

So a bunch of galleries, shops and bars have banded together for a new monthly art crawl in Venice, and at tonight’s kickoff you can expect only the most important art. This includes ’80s Beastie Boys photos on Pacific Avenue, oddball female nudes at 409 Grand and a double happy hour (from 5 to 7pm and again from 10pm to close) at Hama Sushi.

Friday
Happy Hour Plus Half-Off Dinner
FIVE O’CLOCK

Happy Hour Plus Half-Off Dinner

Plenty of happy hours quench your thirst, but few fill you up with a full meal. Until now. Get yourself seated between 5pm and 6pm at FIG, and your Blood Orange and Beet Margarita is half off—and so’s your plate of Short Rib and Pancetta Meatloaf, or anything else from the dinner menu. Feel free to think of it as a late lunch.

Now available Tue-Sat, 5-6pm, FIG, 101 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, 310-319-3111

Saturday
The Walk of Fame App
STARSTRUCK

The Walk of Fame App

It happens to us all. You’ve got out-of-towners to entertain, and they’re not leaving until you show them Tom Hanks’s star on the Walk of Fame. Sigh. Make it snappy with the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce’s new iPhone app, which helps you virtually search for the location of specific stars. You came, you photographed... you left before anybody saw you.

Sunday
Cheap Fish at Sushi Roku
SUSHI

Cheap Fish at Sushi Roku

To celebrate its 10th birthday, the most discreet of the Sushi Rokus—hidden down a brick alley in Pasadena—is docking its prices rather momentously for six days starting Sunday. Whether you’re there for a work lunch or a quick dinner before a movie at Gold Class next door, all of your food will be 40% off.

Aug 22-27, Sushi Roku, 33 Miller Alley, Pasadena, 626-683-3000

Topless Protesting at Venice Beach
EQUALITY

Topless Protesting at Venice Beach

You’ve always been a staunch proponent of equal rights. So for this reason and this reason alone, we wanted to inform you that on Sunday in Venice there’ll be a pack of topless women protesting for the right to take off their shirts in public. Needless to say, they could really use your support.

Aug 22, 2pm, Ocean Front Walk and Navy Street
