The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend is taking it one game at a time.

Thursday
The Laker-tini
THURSDAY GOLD

The Laker-tini

Your passionate support for the Lakers on Tuesday worked out pretty well, so up the ante for game four tonight with a gold-and-purple "Laker-tini," which arrives with a Kobe-stuffed olive. (Nothing but net.)

Thursday
Flight Attendants
THURSDAY FRIENDLY SKIES

Flight Attendants

As a profound follow-up to his probing work capturing cheerleaders in their natural environment, photographer Brian Finke has nobly turned his lens toward the lives of stewardesses. So he's literally aiming high.

411: Opening reception June 12, 7-9pm, Stephen Cohen Gallery, 7358 Beverly Blvd (between Martel and Fuller), 323-937-5525

Saturday
Toy Theater Festival (For Adults)
SATURDAY SEVENTH CIRCLE

Toy Theater Festival (For Adults)

The drama geniuses at REDCAT are staging an edgy two-day puppet fest (think Puppets After Dark). Night one is a "live" performance, and night two is a screening of Dante's Inferno, starring the voices of Dermot Mulroney and Paul "Beakman's World" Zaloom.

411: June 14, 8:30pm; June 15, 7pm; REDCAT in Walt Disney Concert Hall, 631 W. 2nd St (at Hope), Downtown, 213-237-2800

Sunday
The Ward Cleaver at The Waffle
SUNDAY POPS

The Ward Cleaver at The Waffle

Take Dad where you took Mom on her big day—only instead of the June Cleaver, he'll get a manly plate of barbecue pulled pork with hash browns and eggs. And they know what to bring you by now…

411: The Ward Cleaver available June 15, The Waffle, 6255 W. Sunset Blvd (E. of Vine), Hollywood, 323-465-6901

Sunday
Detox-Retox
SUNDAY MAINTENANCE

Detox-Retox

Another epic Saturday? By Sunday afternoon, you either need recovery (try BBQ Brisket Sliders and a Mixed Berry Smoothie with Bee Pollen, from the Detox menu)…or you just need to keep it going (ask for Tuna Sashimi and Pina-Soy Colada with a Bottomless Bloody Mary, from the Retox menu).

411: Sundays starting June 15, 2-6pm, blue on blue at the Avalon Hotel, 9400 W. Olympic Blvd (at Canon), Beverly Hills, 310-407-7791
