Things to do for September 30, 2010
Hip-Shaking Latinas, $1 Tacos and Dan Aykroyd
The weekend is fall’s breakout hit.
Your Guest Bartender: Dan Aykroyd
You’re in Beverly Hills, in dire need of a stiff drink. You step into the old-school Blvd Lounge, make your order, then realize your barman looks remarkably like Dan Aykroyd. No, you’re not hallucinating—it’s him, serving up his own vodka for one night only. Go ahead, quote Tommy Boy.
Upstairs at Malo tonight, you’ll find $1 tacos, tequila at happy hour prices... and racks of shirts from the likes of Riviera Club, marked down by as much as 75%. If only all happy hours could also dress you for the rest of your night.
Spicy Burlesque at the Conga Room
It starts with the percussion. It’s hot inside, and it’s loud. The girls can’t help it—they have to dance, and some clothes might come off in the process. Welcome to “Taxi Dancehall,” the new Latin burlesque show from Ivan “Forty Deuce” Kane starting tomorrow. Just what you needed this week—more heat...
Surfer’s Breakfast at Hash
If you’re starting your Saturday with your surfboard—or just walking your dog—stop into Hash at Hotel Erwin. It’s steps from Venice Beach, and the new grab-and-go Surfer’s Breakfast includes a breakfast burrito, warm mini-muffins and a banana. You know what they say: the early bird catches the mini-muffins.
Happy Hour(s) at Barbrix
Over at Silver Lake’s most domestic wine bar, something noble is brewing. Actually, two somethings. Five nights a week, happy hour now starts at 6pm with half-price pours and $6 burgers―and then, at 10pm, it starts again. You love double happy hour.
