Things to do for September 18, 2008

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend has cash stashed under the mattress.

Thursday
Happy Hour at BLVD 16
THURSDAY HERBAL

Happy Hour at BLVD 16

You're not exactly known for arranging tea time—but when your tea comes in a glass of vodka for $6, well, tea time it is. Wash it down with some half-price olives, charcuterie and tempura...but your pinkies stay in.

Saturday
Brats and Beer
SATURDAY GAME DAY

Brats and Beer

The epicenter of football fandom may now be in Culver City, considering the $10 deal—beer, brat on a bun, fries—now available Saturdays and Sundays at Rush Street through season's end. Keep the beers coming while you watch the game, since all 750ml bottles are half-off. Touchdown, indeed.

411: Sat-Sun, 9:30am-7pm throughout football season, Rush Street, 9546 Washington Blvd (at Culver), Culver City, 310-837-9546

Sunday
Savor the Season
SUNDAY SALVATION

Savor the Season

Your culinary cravings have taken you to the far reaches of the city, but never into the depths of an ancient cathedral for a tasting blowout—until now. Worship might be a strong word, but you wouldn't say no to some wine and food from Geoffrey's, Tanzore, Tasca and Falcon.

411: Sept 21, 6-9pm, $100, Vibiana, 210 S. Main St (at 2nd), Downtown, 310-286-3383, ext. 806

Sunday
BBQ Sundays at Ford's Filling Station
SUNDAY STILL SUMMER

BBQ Sundays at Ford's Filling Station

One of LA's perks—summer's a state of mind. When two meats (Tuscan sausage, pulled pork tenderloin brochette) and two sides (succotash red potato salad, corn on the cob) are $18, starting barbecue season in September makes perfect sense.

411: Sundays starting Sept 21, 3pm, Ford's Filling Station, 9531 Culver Blvd (at Cardif), Culver City, 310-202-1470

Tuesday
Frank Warren at USC
TUESDAY CONFESSIONS

Frank Warren at USC

If you haven't yet submitted an anonymous postcard confession to Post-Secret mastermind Frank Warren...someone's probably submitted one about you. When he shows up on Tuesday to discuss the phenomenon he birthed, you can ask him yourself.

411: Sept 23, 7:30pm, free, Bovard Auditorium, USC, 3620 McClintock Ave (at Downey), Downtown
