Things to do for May 12, 2011

The Weekender

Fried Oysters, Happy Hour Punch and an Alpha Sale

The weekend is on the phone with Dwight Howard.

Thursday
Burgers and Flan at Bar Pintxo
HOUSE OF SPAIN

Burgers and Flan at Bar Pintxo

You’ve historically looked to Bar Pintxo for nights of endless Spanish wine and tapas, but now you can also come for a quick $15 three-course lunch. Options change weekly, but you might score Chicken and Jamon Serrano Croquettes, the Hamburguesa Bar Pintxo and Honey Lavender Flan. Also, wine.

Drinking Punch Bowls at 5pm
MOKO MOTION

Drinking Punch Bowls at 5pm

The bar at MoKo has now got $5 cocktails, beers and wines from 5-7pm, and again from 11pm to close. But they’re calling it a “social hour,” so they’ve also got more social drinks—think punch by the carafe ($12) or bowl ($24). You’re feeling social already.

Nightly, 5-7pm and 11pm-close, MoKo, 9540 Culver Blvd, Culver City, 310-838-3131

Friday
Alpha’s Half-Off Moving Sale
NICE MOVE

Alpha’s Half-Off Moving Sale

Your go-to gentlemen’s shop is moving to roomier digs across the street—but not before a mother of a sidewalk sale. Officially it starts Saturday, but those who know better (aka you) can show up Friday for first dibs on Riviera Club shirts, Generic Surplus shoes and Onia swim trunks at half off.

Fri-Sun, noon-5pm, Alpha, 8625 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, 310-855-0775

Sunday
District’s Oyster and Beer Fest
RE-DISTRICTING

District’s Oyster and Beer Fest

Judging by every other Sunday afternoon ever, you’ll probably find yourself craving oysters and beer around 3pm this Sunday. No problem. Just come by District—this weekend they’re going oyster-crazy with oyster shooters, fried oysters, oysters on the half shell and $25 beer buckets.

Monday
Snuggies and Hot Toddies by the Beach
SNUGGIE ALERT

Snuggies and Hot Toddies by the Beach

There’s a new weeknight party at the Hotel Erwin’s roof bar involving Spiked Hot Chocolate, Ginger-Pear Hot Toddies and... Snuggies. If you show up wearing one, the first round’s on them. Or you can wear a regular shirt, pay for your own round and maintain your dignity.
