Things to do for February 03, 2011
New Burgers, Gratis BBQ and Baz Luhrmann
The weekend is your Vince Lombardi Trophy.
Chinese New Year at Chi Dynasty
According to the Chinese calendar, tigers are over, and your year of the rabbit has begun. Which means you immediately require a parking-lot party with Chinese drummers, red lanterns, plenty of gratis apps and Tsingtao beer. Bonus: no Snooki ball-drop.
Say it’s 11am and you need a Big Breakfast Burger (topped with egg, bacon and cheese). Or it’s 1am and you crave a Western Devil Burger (buffalo sauce, breaded jalapeño). The Juicy Burger guys have set up shop in WeHo to make that happen, and they won’t mind if you’d rather build your own.
Finally, a Happy Hour at Palihouse
You’ve snuck into the Palihouse lobby for an old-school cocktail before, but never for happy hour. Because they never had one, until now. New creations like the Ward Eight (bourbon, grenadine, lemon and orange) now go for $7 until 7pm. Seven remains your lucky number.
If your Los Feliz nights have been lacking a little Montmartre flair, sneak into the low-lit bar next to Vermont restaurant this weekend. You’ll see Broadway’s finest taking stage to perform songs from Baz Luhrmann movies, like “When Doves Cry” (Romeo + Juliet) and “Your Song” (Moulin Rouge).
Books, Booze and BBQ
You’ll find Dan “The Imbiber” Dunn’s new book, Living Loaded, to be a profound meditation on the finer points of... drinking. So it’s only right that you’ll be poured gratis wine at the Book Soup signing. Then, you’ll hit the after-party at Baby Blues for on-the-house beer and barbecue.
