Things to do for November 11, 2010

The Weekender

Power Lunching, Superfly Burlesque and Pickle Chips

The weekend is tracking well in the 18-49 demo.

BRAND-NEW PERK

Steak: It’s What’s for Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, you’re thinking beyond the turkey—by flanking your game bird with assorted chops, ribs and filets from Robinson’s Prime Reserve. $65 gets you $100 of the same premium meats that presidents, royalty and rock stars have enjoyed. Which works out, considering your Thanksgiving guest list (we’re looking at you, Bush Senior).

POWER

Scarpetta Enters the Power Lunch Fray

After a couple introductory weeks of evening octopus and veal, Scarpetta has now thrown open its doors for daytime Truffled Beef Crudo and Spelt Pasta with Pumpkin and Porcini Mushrooms. You can’t cut a deal with a Gersh agent without porcinis.

Superfly Burlesque at Café Was
THAT ’70S SHOW

Superfly Burlesque at Café Was

At a live show called Superfly Burlesque, you might expect jazz, funk and the occasional girl sporting an afro and not much else. Drop by the bar at Ivan Kane’s Café Was tonight―there’s no cover―to see if you’re right. (Hint: you are.)

Thursdays, show at 10pm, Café Was, 1521 N Vine St, Hollywood, 323-466-5400

Saturday
A Store Where Everything Is Free
FREEDOM

A Store Where Everything Is Free

So this is happening. On Saturday, show up at the debut of LAfreestore, and it’ll be filled with whatever everybody felt like bringing―maybe some bikes, DVDS, old records―and it’s all free. They just ask that you bring something free too. Assuming you can part with your ’80s-era Nordic Track.

Nov 13, 10am-2pm, LAfreestore, 4527 York Blvd, Highland Park

Koi’s New Eight-Course Feast
EIGHT IS ENOUGH

Koi’s New Eight-Course Feast

If you can make it to the sushi bar inside Koi (hang a left at the valet stand, a right at the paparazzi), there’s a new omakase menu launching Saturday―omakase translates as “eight courses for 50 bucks.” Expect everything under the sea, plus Grilled Lamb Chops and mochi.

Launches Nov 13, available at sushi bar only, Koi, 730 N La Cienega Blvd, 310-659-9449

Sunday
$1 Fried Pickle Chips at the Counter
A REAL PICKLE

$1 Fried Pickle Chips at the Counter

The big holiday for feasting is now officially upon us―we speak, of course, of National Pickle Day. Celebrate on Sunday with a giant custom burger at the Counter, and your order of their infamous Fried Dill Pickle Chips is only a buck. If only every day could be Pickle Day...
