The Weekender

Alligator Meat, Hot Coffee and Shots

The weekend is a lock for Best New Artist.

Thursday
Bru Now Open
CAFFEINE

Bru Now Open

You’ve got nothing against coffee dives... but an upgrade never hurt anybody either. In the former home of Los Feliz coffeehouse Psychobabble, you’ll now find a shiny, modern café called Bru—with pastries from Susina Bakery and Ritual beans from San Francisco. Yes, they’re still caffeinated.

Saturday
New Happy Hour at Tart
GATOR

New Happy Hour at Tart

Next time you get a craving for some vodka and alligator (like this afternoon), drop into the rustic courtyard at Tart. Their extended new happy hour means $5 well drinks, $2.75 PBRs and $6 Popcorn Alligator. It’s like popcorn shrimp but... it’s alligator meat.

Mon-Sat, 2:30-7pm, Tart, 115 S Fairfax Ave, 323-937-3930

A Bouquet of Floral Jelly Shots
FLOWERS

A Bouquet of Floral Jelly Shots

If you must get someone flowers for Valentine’s Day, they should probably come in the form of fancy Jell-O shots. Eighteen bucks at Bar Nineteen12 will get you half a dozen heart-shaped shots in flowery flavors like hibiscus, violet and, yes, rose. Nothing says romance like gelatinous booze.

Available Feb 12-14, Bar Nineteen12, 9641 Sunset Blvd, Beverly Hills, 310-276-2251

Sunday
The ArcLight Does Valentine’s Day
CINEMA

The ArcLight Does Valentine’s Day

Whether Valentine’s Day puts you in the mood for a movie where they don’t get together in the end (Once) or where they were already together but paid to have all relationship memories erased (Eternal Sunshine), the ArcLights around town have two nights of timely screenings for you. Also: popcorn.

Monday
All You Can Eat at Mas Malo
TACOS

All You Can Eat at Mas Malo

If Valentine’s Day brings out your appetite for meat and cheese (rather than your appetite for schmaltzy romance), you might want to hit this all-you-can-eat Mexican blowout at Mas Malo. Twenty dollars at the door gets you all the tacos, tortas and taquitos you can handle. Relationship status: irrelevant.

Feb 14, 6pm, Mas Malo, 515 W 7th St, Downtown, 213-985-4332
