The Weekender

Beermosas, French Shirts and a Christmas Pizza Party

The weekend looks great in elf shoes.

Thursday
Golden Road Brewing Pub Debuts
YOU’RE GOLDEN

Golden Road Brewing Pub Debuts

You already know about the massive Golden Road brewery in Atwater Village. Now you can stop into the super-casual pub next door to sample the twice-baked potatoes and meatballs made with pork, bacon and pancetta. And beer. They also have beer.

Half-Off Clothes at A.P.C.

Half-Off Clothes at A.P.C.

If you aren’t gifted enough French-looking shirts, cords and nautical-striped sweaters this weekend, take matters into your own hands. Literally. Go into A.P.C., grab what you want and haul it to the register—almost everything is half off. Alternatively, there’s still time to buy for other people.

Ongoing, A.P.C., 619 N Croft Ave, West Hollywood, 323-297-0414

A Drink and a Smoke, Sort Of
WHERE THERE’S SMOKE

A Drink and a Smoke, Sort Of

About 1886’s new cocktails... it’s almost like you’re smoking them instead of drinking them. Try The Smoking Jacket, with whiskey, tobacco bitters and edible orange-vanilla ash. Or the Coffee & Cigarettes, a vodka-and-stout concoction served with an edible vanilla-paper cigarette in a metal ashtray. No lighter required.

Available now, 1886 at The Raymond, 1250 S Fair Oaks Ave, Pasadena, 626-441-3136

Sunday
A Christmas Pizza Party
HOLIDAY PIE

A Christmas Pizza Party

Christmas. A time for family. And gifts. And, of course, sausage pizza. Osteria La Buca is throwing open their doors at 5pm on Sunday for a party devoted exclusively to pizza and booze. (To repeat: the menu is all pizza and booze.) Guess you made it onto the “nice” list.

Monday
Your Post-Christmas Hangover Brunch
THE HANGOVER

Your Post-Christmas Hangover Brunch

We know what you’ll need come Monday: a big trash can for all that wrapping paper. Also: a bottomless brunch on a porch. The Hudson’s got a Hangover Burger (avocado, bacon, jalapeño cheddar, fried egg), plus endless mimosas or beermosas. Yes, OJ in your beer. For the vitamin C.

Dec 26, noon-4pm, The Hudson, 1114 N Crescent Heights Blvd, West Hollywood, 323-654-6686
