Things to do for December 30, 2010

The Weekender

Dog Facials, Lakers Beer and a Three-Story House Party

The weekend is taking it to eleven.

Thursday
Three-Course Dog Menu at L’Ermitage
DOG COMPLEX

Three-Course Dog Menu at L’Ermitage

We know: you and your dog just want to hole up in a hotel to ride out the New Year’s madness in peace. Good news: L’Ermitage now offers a canine three-course menu―think salmon, organic chicken and sweet potatoes. Then Rex will be ready for his blowout and blueberry facial. All of this is true.

Now available, L’Ermitage, 9291 Burton Way, Beverly Hills, 310-278-3344

Friday
A Three-Story House Party for NYE
FINALE

A Three-Story House Party for NYE

If your New Year’s Eve plans tend to remain fluid until the last minute, you’ll probably end up at a house party. Like the three-story bash at the Victorian in Santa Monica, from the Basement Tavern speakeasy on up. Admission includes two drinks, and yes, there will be scotch.

Dec 31, 5pm-2am, $50, The Victorian, 2640 Main St, Santa Monica, 310-392-4956

Bottomless Wine for $20.11 at Pourtal
ALTERNATE ENDING

Bottomless Wine for $20.11 at Pourtal

Or you could head to Pourtal wine bar and drop $20.11—that’ll get you three hours of bottomless bubbly from 9pm to midnight. You won’t need a reservation, but you’ll need to show up early enough to find room (they technically open at 4pm). Luckily, your top resolution involves punctuality.

Dec 31, 9pm-midnight, Pourtal, 104 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, 310-393-7693

Saturday
And Your $20.11 Hangover Brunch
FRESH START

And Your $20.11 Hangover Brunch

Good way to start your 2011: by the pool at the W in Westwood. You’ll have two courses for $20.11 (we’d go for crabcakes and the All-in-One Breakfast Pizza). For another $20.11, you can get a bottle of wine (or bottomless Bloodys or mimosas). Suddenly it’s like you’re celebrating the year 4022.

Tuesday
Lakers Specials at 25 Degrees
BASKET CASE

Lakers Specials at 25 Degrees

And once the holidays are over, you can return your full attention to the Lakers. Anytime there’s a game happening, you can catch it over a burger at 25 Degrees, along with $3 beers, half-off shakes and fries, and drink specials. Think of it as a Kobe burger.

Now ongoing, 25 Degrees, 7000 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 323-785-7244
