Things to do for April 07, 2011

The Weekender

Lamb Sausage, a Beer Garden and Partying Silently

The weekend would like to propose a toast.

Thursday
Look at the New Osteria La Buca
EVOLUTION

Look at the New Osteria La Buca

After shutting down for a(nother) total overhaul, your Paramount-adjacent Italian go-to is back. And bigger. And different. Take a seat by the windows in the new downstairs dining room, and new chef Jason Neroni will send over lamb sausage and pork meatballs to go with your Campari Punch.

MOCA’s Silent Disco Party
ENJOY THE SILENCE

MOCA’s Silent Disco Party

Show up to the Downtown MOCA tonight with some earphones and anything that receives a radio signal. Over the airwaves will come live music and dance remixes—dancing is encouraged, and unlike the other works of art in the museum, you’re allowed to be touched.

Apr 7, 7-10pm, no cost, radios for $2, MOCA, 250 S Grand Ave, 213-626-6222

Saturday
A Wine Bar Legend Launches Brunch
EASY AOC

A Wine Bar Legend Launches Brunch

Over the years, AOC has always had wine and bubbly waiting when you needed it—except for brunch. But try the doors at 10am this weekend, and they’ll open into a land of Grilled Blueberry Bread, duck confit, wild mushroom hash... and yes, wine and bubbly. Well played, AOC.

Sat-Sun, 10am-2pm, AOC, 8022 W 3rd St, 323-653-6359

A Pop-Up Beer Garden
BEER WINDOW

A Pop-Up Beer Garden

In short: when beer bars like Surly Goat, Blue Palms and Tony’s Darts Away band together for a beer party in the sun, you need to know. A $10 mug is your admission ticket (only 100 will be available at the door, so arrive early), and dozens of craft beers are $5 each.

First & Hope’s New Cocktail Cart
BOOZE ON WHEELS

First & Hope’s New Cocktail Cart

When you’re having a nice brunch, it would be great if the bar would come to you. So First & Hope is rolling out a cocktail cart fully stocked with everything from prosecco to limoncello to bitters. We don’t recommend trying all three together.
