Things to do for June 23, 2011

The Weekender

Midnight Happy Hour, Pork Burgers and the Prom

The weekend thinks it saw Whitey Bulger on the Promenade.

Thursday
Vertical’s New Burger Night
NICE VERTICAL

Vertical’s New Burger Night

We bet you could use a burger—call it a hunch. If this is a regular Thursday occurrence, head to Vertical for their new weekly burger night, with fancy Kobe, pork and bison patties on offer. And you might want some Beer-Battered Onion Rings and a beer flight. Call it another hunch.

Public Kitchen’s New $5 Happy Hour
PUBLIC RECORD

Public Kitchen’s New $5 Happy Hour

If you’re calling it an early afternoon, burrow into the Roosevelt for a stool near the dancing bartendress. From 3 to 7pm, five regular menu items like Chickpea and Three Cheese Fritters will be priced at five bucks—as will beer, wine and a rotating cocktail.

Friday
Late-Night Deals at Wood and Vine
LATE TO THE PARTY

Late-Night Deals at Wood and Vine

And speaking of happy hours, you wouldn’t mind one when it really counts—like from 11pm to 2am on a Friday. Sort of amazingly, Hollywood’s refined house of whiskey and waffles has heard your call—come by before closing for $4 California beers and $8 cocktails.

Nightly, 11pm-2am, Wood and Vine, 6280 Hollywood Blvd, 323-334-3360

Cinefamily Goes to the Prom
CORSAGES

Cinefamily Goes to the Prom

Ah, prom. The spiked punch, the random DJ... the murderous telekinetic outcasts. Friday’s prom-themed double feature at the Silent Movie Theatre has all of the above, with a dance party between screenings of Carrie and Hello Mary Lou: Prom Night II. We recommend a sky blue tux.

Sunday
Shaved Ice from a Meter Maid Truck
MAID TO ORDER

Shaved Ice from a Meter Maid Truck

Instead of handing out parking tickets, one new meter maid truck is being more productive. Launching Sunday, Ice Ice Shavie will be serving you Hawaiian-style shaved ices—like the Que Bueno, with cucumber, cilantro, jalapeño and lime. Suggestion: book it for a party and stock up on tequila.
