Things to do for January 26, 2012

The Weekender

Pork Knuckles, Tequila Martinis and Cute Puppies

The weekend is tenderly consoling Charlize Theron.

Thursday
Presenting Tar & Roses
COMING UP ROSES

Presenting Tar & Roses

Tar & Roses. No, this isn’t an Oscar-bait flick starring Adrien Brody. It’s actually the long-awaited Santa Monica restaurant from the former chef at Wilshire, and it’s full of wine, wild boar charcuterie and wood-roasted pork knuckle. No word on knuckle sandwiches.

Some Valentine’s Day Help
JEWELRY. DONE.

Some Valentine’s Day Help

Just in time for Valentine’s Day, LA-based jewelry line Luv Aj is unloading a bunch of unique goods at 60% off on their website. So you can take care of your V-Day obligations and quickly return to your fantasy Oscar league. You’re nothing if not efficient.

Friday
Your Tequila Martinis Are Here
MARTINIS, REVISED

Your Tequila Martinis Are Here

You know Lola’s as that place on Fairfax with a million martinis. Well, make that a million and eight. Their new tequila martinis include the Guantanamera (with strawberry and jalapeño) and the Bolero (with pineapple and lime). Take five, appletini.

Saturday
Steak, a Movie... and a Dog
MAN’S BEST FRIEND

Steak, a Movie... and a Dog

There’s a new breed of pet shop on the Westside. Its name: L.A. Love & Leashes. Its deal: a nonprofit full of rescues, ready to adopt. So now after that steak-and-matinee date at Westside Pavilion, you can pick up a pup. And suddenly it’s a walk-the-dog date.

Tuesday
Comme Ça Adds a Pile of Burgers
COMME AGAIN

Comme Ça Adds a Pile of Burgers

The Comme Ça burger: you’ve had it before, and you’ll have it again. Soon. But first you’ll want to try one of the new burgers they’re serving—like the Breakfast Burger, with pork sausage, an egg and white gravy on an English muffin. It’s okay that you already had breakfast.

Tuesdays, 5:30-11pm, Comme Ça, 8479 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, 323-782-1104
