The Weekender

Rugged Lingerie, Marina Oysters and a Truck Stop

The weekend just pranked Clooney.

Thursday
Friday
Oysters and Bubbly at Cafe del Rey
REY OF LIGHT

Oysters and Bubbly at Cafe del Rey

Cafe del Rey turns 20 this year. Which means two things for you: 1) Now through next Wednesday, they’ll bring you a half-dozen oysters and a glass of champagne for $20. 2) Every Friday through September, pitchers of White Peach Sangria are $20 all day. Please, no gifts.

Through Jul 27, Cafe del Rey, 4451 Admiralty Way, Marina del Rey, 310-823-6395

If Armor Were More Like Lingerie...
ARMOR AND A LEG

If Armor Were More Like Lingerie...

At week’s end there are many reasons to raise a glass, but the most compelling is probably a champagne-soaked party at a lingerie store. Models will show off the new Eleven Collection by Armor, which involves lingerie... that could be worn by gladiators. You’ll just have to see for yourself.

Stella Rossa’s Late-Night Happy Hour
COMING UP ROSSA

Stella Rossa’s Late-Night Happy Hour

Two very beautiful words in the English language: midnight pizza. Possibly more beautiful: come by Stella Rossa for a housemade organic Italian sausage pizza, and you’ll pair it with a $3 bottle of beer, $4 pint or $5 glass of wine. We stopped counting how many words that is.

Mon-Thu, 10pm-midnight; Fri-Sat, 11pm-1am; Sun, 9-11pm; Stella Rossa, 2000 Main St, 310-396-9250

Saturday
Miranda July’s New Art Thing
CHRISTMAS IN JULY

Miranda July’s New Art Thing

On Saturday, actress/writer/director/professional eccentric Miranda July has a new installation called Eleven Heavy Things outside the Pacific Design Center, and climbing on the pieces—one’s a podium marked “The Guilty One”—is encouraged. Climbing on other pieces in the PDC: still discouraged.

Opening reception Jul 23, 6-8pm, shows through Oct 23, MOCA at PDC, 8687 Melrose Ave, 213-626-6222

Wednesday
Introducing the Truck Stop
STOP IT

Introducing the Truck Stop

On the bustling corner of La Brea and Beverly, the Truck Stop has launched Wednesday nights, with plans to go seven days a week. It’s not a diner; it’s a lot with seven food trucks—including the Knockout Taco Truck and the Grilled Cheese Truck. No word on a waitress named Flo.
