The Weekender

Waffle Sliders, Spike Jonze and a Shipwreck Party

The weekend is a ménage à trois.

Thursday
Spike Jonze Screening at Space 15 Twenty
CINEMA

Spike Jonze Screening at Space 15 Twenty

There’s a rare hipster trifecta going down in Hollywood tonight. Space 15 Twenty (1) has joined forces with McSweeney’s (2) to host an evening of courtyard culture that includes live music and a screening of I’m Here, the new short film from Spike Jonze (3). We hear it’s nothing like Adaptation.

Saturday
Waffle Sliders and Endless Bloodys
BOTTOMLESS

Waffle Sliders and Endless Bloodys

The Six’s new brunch menu wields crazy-brilliant options like Waffle Sliders (sausage, fried egg, cheddar and bacon between waffle “bread”) and Hay Stacks (fries topped with burger meat, cheese, egg and gravy). Plus, bottomless Bloodys, mimosas or beer will flow for an extra $10. Do it.

Now available Sat-Sun, 11:30am-2pm, The Six, 10668 W Pico Blvd, 310-837-6662

Sunday
Rockabilly Luau at Little Cave
COCONUTS

Rockabilly Luau at Little Cave

Over in Highland Park, Little Cave is upping the ante on Labor Day weekend cookouts. They’ll start with free barbecue. Then, they’ll roll out a spread of hot rods and hogs outside, and a harem of luau girls within. Well played, Little Cave. Well played.

Sep 5, 3-9pm, Little Cave, 5922 N Figueroa St, Highland Park, 323-255-6871

Party in an Indoor Shipwreck
SINKING FEELING

Party in an Indoor Shipwreck

So there’s this event space called Machine Project, and some artists have built a big fake shipwreck right in the middle of it. Which, come Sunday night, means one thing for you: a toga party. Just kidding, it means a shipwreck party.

Sep 5, 5-10pm, Machine Project, 1200 D N Alvarado St, Echo Park, 213-483-8761

Tuesday
Happy Hour at the Slaw Dogs
BREW DOGS

Happy Hour at the Slaw Dogs

You’re going to want to add Slaw Dogs to your happy hour short list (subcategory: Pasadena). Starting next week, you can get an all-beef hot dog with three toppings (everything from curry ketchup to roast garlic mayo) and a PBR tallboy for $5.99. Think of it as happy hour casual.

Starts Sep 7, Mon-Fri, 3-5pm, The Slaw Dogs, 720 N Lake Ave, Pasadena, 626-808-9777
