This Weekend: Clubbing in Your Underwear

The weekend just posed with a wax figure of itself.

Thursday
Art Show About Eyeballs
EYE TO EYE

Art Show About Eyeballs

Come by Rankin’s new art gallery tonight and you’ll find yourself gazing deeply into the captivating eyes of his models. This is because the photos just show their eyeballs—colorful, vivid and floating in white space. Pupils are the new erogenous zone.

Now open, Eyescapes at Rankin Gallery, 8070 Melrose Ave, 323-944-0026

TAKE A PICCA

Picca Gets an Upstairs Bar

The Westside’s exalted Peruvian cantina has been up and running for a few weeks, and you know what that means—time for them to open up a balcony bar with a giant red “Emergency” sign. It’s reserved for walk-ins, so you can get your ceviche and pisco immediately.

Now open above Picca, 9575 W Pico Blvd, 310-277-0133

Friday
Clubbing in Your Underwear
GETTING BRIEFED

Clubbing in Your Underwear

Exciting news: Friday is National Underwear Day. Show up in your skivvies at Playhouse and you’ll drink gratis vodka until 11pm. Plus, get a table, and a bottle of champagne is on them. Free vodka and bubbly—pretty much what always happens when you show up in your underwear.

Aug 5, 10pm, Playhouse, 6506 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 323-656-4600

Saturday
Rocco’s Tavern Meets Culver City
LIKE A ROCCO

Rocco’s Tavern Meets Culver City

There’s a new spot in Culver City that looks like an old firehouse: brick walls and a rolled-up garage door. But inside it’s got spaghetti, thin-crust pizzas, plenty of flat-screens and two-for-one happy hours every day from 3 to 7pm. Firehouse happy hours are the best.

Officially opens Aug 4, Rocco’s Tavern, 3843 Main St, Culver City, 310-559-5500
