Things to do for March 06, 2008

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend isn't losing an hour, it's gaining density.

Friday
Goa Launches New Night
FRIDAY OPULENCE

Goa Launches New Night

Because two days a week wasn't enough time to suitably traverse every corner of the Indian-and-then-some Hollywood mega-lounge extravagantly designed by Kris Keith, you may now do so on Fridays as well.

411: Goa, 1615 N. Cahuenga Blvd (between Hollywood and Selma), Hollywood, call 323-465-4165 for dinner reservations

Saturday
'Are You Going With Me?'
SATURDAY ARTISTRY

'Are You Going With Me?'

At the exhibit of Edward Walton Wilcox's collected works, you might find Mao Tse Tung re-imagined as a panda bear...or truly absurd ideas like the Hollywood cityscape presented as some sort of ominous, melting cesspool. Shocking, we know.

411: Opening reception Mar 8, 6-10pm, Ambrogi | Castanier Gallery, 300 N. Robertson Blvd (at Beverly), West Hollywood, 310-652-5511

Sunday
Stuart House Benefit
SUNDAY CHARITY

Stuart House Benefit

If charitable causes aren't reason enough to draw you to this street party put on by John Varvatos and Converse, you might be enticed by the In-N-Out, the Patrón, and the wry yester-rock spectacle of Cheap Trick alfresco. Yes, they still want you to want them.

411: Mar 9, noon-5pm, $75, John Varvatos, 8800 Melrose Ave (at Robertson), West Hollywood, email for tickets or call 310-815-9152

Sunday
Charles Bukowski's Los Angeles
SUNDAY HISTORY

Charles Bukowski's Los Angeles

The bizarrely fascinating bus tours put on by Esotouric get lit(erary) this month with a tour of local haunts once favored by the well-lubricated writer. Included: his favorite bar, and his favorite liquor store...

411: Mar 9, check-in 12:30pm outside Philippe the Original, 1001 N. Alameda (N. of Union Station), Downtown, tickets available here

Monday
BLANKSPACES Opens
MONDAY PRODUCTIVITY

BLANKSPACES Opens

Sometimes you need a break from your (admittedly impressive) office, so you could buy a few hours—or months—in this new modern take on the communal concept, with all the requisite technology and neighbors like Goat. Makes more sense than home, where productivity is often limited to...more leisurely pursuits.

411: Opens Mar 10, 5405 Wilshire Blvd (W. of La Brea), Miracle Mile, 323-330-9505
