Things to do for September 22, 2011

The Weekender

Poolside Scrabble, Fred Segal and Desert Cigars

One of the weekend’s Emmys has gone missing.

Thursday
Exclusive Shoes and Bacon Explosions
PERK ALERT

Exclusive Shoes and Bacon Explosions

We’re getting you a couple one-of-a-kind shoes from the venerable Maine-based cobbling outfit, Rancourt & Co. Then we’re airmailing you three Bacon Explosions (enough said). Finally, we’re stocking your cellar for 53% off, and making your mimosas bottomless in Beverly Hills. Get busy.

Gobi’s All-Day Happy Hour
MONGOL EMPIRE

Gobi’s All-Day Happy Hour

Whatever you’re doing right now is probably lacking in Mongolian barbecue. (We said probably.) To remedy the situation, head to Gobi’s new all-day happy hour, now going down every Thursday, where you’ll wash down your stir-fried meats with $3 beers and $4 wines. (The drinks: not stir-fried.)

Thursdays, 11:30am-10pm, Gobi, 2827 W Sunset Blvd, Silver Lake, 213-989-0711

Cigars and a Shave in the Desert
HAVANA NIGHTS

Cigars and a Shave in the Desert

Desert temperatures have recently dipped below the 400-degree mark. You’re thinking road trip, and you wouldn’t say no to a hot shave and a couple cigars upon arrival. In an unrelated matter: the old-timey Havana Club barbershop and cigar lounge just opened out in La Quinta.

Friday
The Fred Segal Sale Returns
RIGHT SAID FRED

The Fred Segal Sale Returns

Cancel your Friday lunch plans—tomorrow’s the kickoff of the biannual Fred Segal sale, when you’ll be looking at racks and racks of Paul Smith shirts and Rag & Bone pants marked at half off. But if you still need lunch, their Umami’s right there.

Sep 23-Oct 9, Fred Segal, 420 Broadway, Santa Monica

Sunday
Board Games and Punch Bowls, Poolside
CHAIRMAN OF THE BOARD

Board Games and Punch Bowls, Poolside

Sunday night: the end of the weekend. Or the beginning of an alfresco beer garden situation, with sausages and pretzels, gin and raspberries in punch bowls—and board games by the Viceroy pool. The menu will change each week, but your Scrabble dominance should stay pretty consistent.

Tuesday
Piles of Wings at Delphine
WINGING IT

Piles of Wings at Delphine

When you’ve got a craving for wings and beer, you could go to a sports bar... or a Mediterranean brasserie. Delphine’s new wing night means upscale takes like Truffle Cheese wings, Honey Sriracha wings and BBQ Beer with Green Chili wings. You never drink beer without honey sriracha.
