This week, we’re taking you to the roof for boozy snow cones and a three-course meal at LA Market, hooking you up with half-off Seize sur Vingt shirts and getting you into all four days of bonfires, movies and Clint Eastwood at the Carmel Art & Film Festival.
Things to do for September 01, 2011
Shrimp, Bowling and Basement Burlesque
The weekend will not be laboring. At all.
Live Music in a Bowling Lounge
When you bowl a strike, the sound of crashing pins has been an okay reward. But at the Spare Room, that reward has been upgraded—their new live-music series kicks off tonight with Zooey Deschanel’s former bandmate Sam Shelton. And her voice is pretty striking.
Lindy & Grundy’s Big BBQ Bargains
Just in time for your epic Labor Day barbecue, your go-to rockabilly butchers have taken 30% off everything in their freezer—from burger patties to meatballs to pork ribs to jambalaya to brisket. It’s a pretty big freezer.
Killer Shrimp Returns, with Cocktails
After abandoning you three years ago, the spicy-shellfish temple once known as Killer Shrimp is back. Come for the titular specialty and the marina views, stay for cocktails from 1886’s Marcos Tello—like the Killer Margarita, made with curaçao and lime. You prefer drinks that are part-time assassins.
Your Dinner Party at 1717 Vine
You can hardly believe it, but you’ve been putting down flatbreads and gin at Cleo for a whole year now. To celebrate their first birthday, they’ve got a special $17.17 prix fixe menu of favorites like kebabs, brussels sprouts and baklava every Sunday this month. They grow up so fast.
Basement Burlesque for the Holiday
To properly celebrate Labor Day, you won’t be working. Obviously. Instead, you’ll be in a basement, in Santa Monica, for Basement Tavern’s new burlesque show involving bare legs, live jazz and $5 drink specials. Which is all you ask from your holiday basement burlesque.
