The Weekender

The LA Weekend Starts Here

The weekend doesn't need flowers.

Thursday
Vinyl Vixens at Whiskey Blue
THURSDAY SCRATCH MARKS

Vinyl Vixens at Whiskey Blue

In a noble quest to highlight the city's most notable female DJs, the recurring bash is split into two parts tonight. Come early for the sponsored bar, stay late to hear from Crown Bar's DJ Pesce—the evening's deserving honoree.

411: May 8, 8-10pm with RSVP, no RSVP needed after 10pm, Whiskey Blue at the W Hotel, 930 Hilgard Ave (between Weyburn and Le Conte), Westwood, 310-208-8765

Friday
BLT Steak
FRIDAY EXTENDED LUNCH

BLT Steak

Because dinner isn't the only time when an important deal needs to be sealed over martinis and a porterhouse, the city's new power spot is now serving lunch...
411: 8720 W. Sunset Blvd (W. of La Cienega), West Hollywood, 310-360-1950

Delancey
...and so is Delancey, the low-key new Italian joint from the owner of Bowery bar. The vibe is more leisurely here, but not to worry—you can still get a martini.

411: 5936 Sunset Blvd (at Tamarind), Hollywood, 323-924-2093

Friday
Studio 1954
FRIDAY FLASHBACK

Studio 1954

As any performance piece about the dark underbelly of life in the '50s should, this one features acrobats, guests in period attire, and a party afterward with a DJ and an open bar. Revisionist art at its best...

411: May 9-10 and 16-17, 801 E. 4th Place (E. of Alameda), Downtown, 310-828-5260

Saturday
The Princess Bride at Angel City Drive-In
SATURDAY OUTDOOR MOVIE

The Princess Bride at Angel City Drive-In

On a rooftop parking lot covered in Astroturf comes a BYOB screening of one of the most important feats of cinema of the ‘80s...The Princess Bride. The idea that you would miss such a rare opportunity is, of course, inconceivable.

411: May 10, gates 7:30pm, show at 9pm, 240 W. 4th St, 2nd Floor (at Broadway), Downtown, tickets available online

Sunday
Mother's Day at The Waffle
SUNDAY GOOD SON

Mother's Day at The Waffle

Boundless enthusiasm for the city's best secret hangover cure might not impress the woman who gave you life. But she can enjoy another special creation called The June Cleaver (pancakes, berries and a brown sugar-cream cheese mousse are involved) while you focus on recovering from all that pre-Mother's Day revelry.

411: The Waffle, 6255 W. Sunset Blvd (E. of Vine), Hollywood, 323-465-6901
