An Art Show About Bill Murray
ZISSOU

An Art Show About Bill Murray

The man. The myth. The Ghostbuster. More than 40 artists have banded together for one singular purpose―to try to properly express their love for the guy who played Venkman. You might think this calls for a party with an open bar, and these people thought so too...

Sep 17, 7pm-midnight, R&R Gallery, 929 E 2nd St #106, Downtown, 213-626-2261

Saturday
Night of the Living Dead at Cinespia
BRAINS

Night of the Living Dead at Cinespia

Another season of wine-drenched cemetery picnics is winding down, but not before a real doozy of a finale. Saturday night among the headstones, you’ll be watching George Romero’s 1968 zombie classic, Night of the Living Dead. It’s either so wrong it’s right, or so right it’s wrong.

Sep 18, $10 at gate, doors 6:30pm, movie 8pm, Hollywood Forever, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd

Sunday
Nachos and Beer Buckets at 25 Degrees
WHISTLE

Nachos and Beer Buckets at 25 Degrees

You usually visit 25 Degrees for the burgers, but Sundays and Mondays, when it’s time to catch the football game, you’ll now be heading there for specials like Prime Rib Nachos, Chili Cheese Fries and $9 buckets of beer. And maybe a burger.

Sun-Mon, 25 Degrees, 7000 Hollywood Blvd, 323-785-7244

Tuesday
A Very Important History Lesson
INK

A Very Important History Lesson

Long before LA was drowning in Ed Hardy trucker hats, there was a 10-year-old tattoo artist named Don Ed Hardy, who grew into an international ink icon and eventually inspired... those clothes. Consider the documentary Ed Hardy: Tattoo the World, screening Tuesday at the Hammer, a cautionary tale.

Sep 21, 7pm, no cost, Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Blvd, Westwood, 310-443-7000

Taco Tuesday Comes to LA
TACOS

Taco Tuesday Comes to LA

NYC’s long-running party involving dueling guest bartenders, raffles, drinking for charity and, yes, tacos has set up shop on our coast. Come after 7pm for $4 beers and a $10 plate of three tacos―your choice of carnitas, tilapia, spicy red chili chicken or grilled flank steak.
