The Weekender

Huge Beers, Alfresco Lamb and Vincent Price

The weekend always speaks with certitude.

Thursday
The Steven Alan Sample Sale Returns
PLAID MEN

The Steven Alan Sample Sale Returns

With summer at hand, it’s time to stock up on the kinds of plaid shirts you throw on with shorts, roll up the sleeves and go. Head to a Hollywood warehouse right now, and you’ll find more plaid per square foot than any other place in the city—all more than half off.

Jun 9-12, Siren Studios, 6063 Sunset Blvd (east of Gower), Hollywood, 323-467-3559

Like Happy Hour, but for Dinner
TWENTY-FOUR

Like Happy Hour, but for Dinner

You’re well-acquainted with the two halves of WP24—extravagant feasts in the dining room, cocktails and 24th-floor views in the lounge. Now there’s a mashup: the lounge is offering a three-course feast of rotating choices like Crispy “General Tso” Style Quail from the dining-room menu. Price: $24.

Friday
32-Ounce Beers at City Tavern
GO BIG

32-Ounce Beers at City Tavern

At the end of a long, hard week, you need beer. So in cases of extreme emergency, hit the happy hour at Culver City’s newest beer bar, where you can get any of the 22 brews on tap poured into a 32-ounce glass milk jug for $10. Repeat as necessary.

Mon-Fri, 3-6pm; Sat-Sun, 3:30-6pm; City Tavern, 9739 Culver Blvd, 310-838-9739

Saturday
A 3D Vincent Price Evening
PRICE-Y

A 3D Vincent Price Evening

Everybody’s all high on 3D these days, but Vincent Price was doing this stuff back in ’53. To celebrate what would’ve been his 100th birthday, the Downtown Independent is screening House of Wax. A VIP ticket gets you beer and wine on the roof beforehand. Yes, the views are 3D.

Sunday
Drago Centro Hosts a Barbecue
THAT’S YOUR ’CUE

Drago Centro Hosts a Barbecue

The courtyard outside Drago Centro will smell surprisingly porky come Sunday. Your usual spot for fancy Italian is changing it up for their version of a barbecue. Fifty bucks gets you endless plates of all the suckling pig, pork sausage and lamb you can eat. Also, lasagna.

Jun 12, 5-9pm, $50, Drago Centro, 525 S Flower St, Downtown, 213-228-8998
