Things to do for January 27, 2011
Roman Polanski, Roller Derby and Pancakes
The weekend won’t be played off this year.
You’re thirsty for a spiked coconut in front of the Egyptian Theatre tonight, but first you could use an overpowering sense of dread. Good news―tonight kicks off a four-night screening series of Roman Polanski double features, including Knife in the Water and Rosemary’s Baby. No, Polanski won’t be there.
Happy Hour, Now with Pancakes
For too long now, breakfast and happy hour have been two separate things. But one forward-thinking Main Street café is unleashing the happy hour breakfast this Friday afternoon. For five hours, at the bar, they’ll be slinging $5 Blueberry Margaritas and $6 plates of Silver Dollar Blueberry Pancakes.
Derby Girls Take Over Rush Street
If your Sunday-brunch routine has gotten a little stale, time to shake things up with some tough girls in knee pads. The Angel City Derby Girls have come to Culver City, and to commemorate their inaugural match, the bar will have bottomless Bloody Marys beforehand―and later, an after-party with the girls.
A Cuban Feast at La Descarga
Things will be a little different Sunday night at La Descarga―the roving supper club called Moveable Feast has roved in this direction for a Cuban-themed blowout, with six courses of appetizers and a secret new cocktail from the barman. But you still have to climb in through the coat closet.
A Movie and Half-Price Wine
It’s that time―time to see all those Oscar nominees you’ve missed. Catch a movie at AMC Century City on Sunday, and if you show your ticket stub at Obikà afterward, you’ll get any bottle of wine at half-off. Yes, it still works for Little Fockers.
