CLOSING TIME

Atmosphere’s 70% Off Closing Sale

You never like to see a good shop go off to that great big register in the sky. But if it has to happen, you’ll absolutely hit a three-day blowout sale with 70% off all the Comune jeans, Shades of Greige button-downs and Generic Surplus shoes they have left.

Apr 28-30, Atmosphere, 1728 N Vermont Ave, Los Feliz, 323-666-8420

All About Hot Tubs in the ’70s
THAT’S HOT

All About Hot Tubs in the ’70s

As fun as history is, there’s always been a shocking lack of scholarly research into hot tub culture in ’70s Santa Barbara. Here to correct this oversight: the new short documentary Hot Tubs, screening tonight. Stay for the live music afterward... leave to go get in someone’s hot tub.

Watching Kate and William Give It a Go
ROYAL PAINS

Watching Kate and William Give It a Go

You couldn’t make it to Westminster Abbey for the big royal wedding (pilot season is just so crazy). But you can still witness the ring swap at the Cat & Fiddle’s late-night pajama party. Twenty bucks gets you a cocktail, beef Wellington and a live 3am broadcast of the ceremony.

Sunday
Your New Wine Bar Brunch
CORK AND KNIFE

Your New Wine Bar Brunch

Your Covell wine bar nights are approaching legend. Now they’re set to take over your days. Brunch starts this Sunday, with Heirloom LA’s new truck providing the Buttermilk Jidori Chicken and Waffles, Ciabatta French Toast Sticks and Red Wine-Braised Brisket. Which might call for some red wine.

Sundays starting May 1, noon, Covell, 4628 Hollywood Blvd, Los Feliz, 323-660-4400

Monday
Nickel Nights in a Basement Speakeasy
FIVE ON IT

Nickel Nights in a Basement Speakeasy

Starting Monday at Basement Tavern, anybody who flashes proof they live in the neighborhood (Santa Monica or Venice) gets an old wooden Prohibition nickel—which can be redeemed for a five-cent Modern Fashioned, with whiskey, blackberries and blood oranges. So yes, take the wooden nickels.

Mondays starting May 2, Basement Tavern, The Victorian, 2640 Main St, 310-392-4956
