Things to do for March 01, 2012

The Weekender

Insane Coffee, $1 Martinis and That Eveleigh Burger

The weekend wants a word with Morgan Freeman’s earring guy.

Thursday
Just a 15-Day-Long Happy Hour...
THE HOURS

Just a 15-Day-Long Happy Hour...

Two words: happy hour. One more: Pasadena. (Stay with us here.) They’ve got a citywide happy hour blowout happening for the next two weeks, so you can fill your evenings with $1 martinis, $2 beers and $3 yellowtail rolls. Consider it a very special episode of your regular happy hour programming.

Friday
Daytime Burger-ing at Eveleigh
EVELEIGH AFTER

Daytime Burger-ing at Eveleigh

Come Friday, you should be focused on—oh, let’s just throw something out there—burgers. Head to the patio here around at lunchtime, and you’ll see something remarkable: it’s open. And yes, they’re serving the burger.

Saturday
Poolside Mules on Wilshire
PLAYING POOL

Poolside Mules on Wilshire

Ah, the Moscow Mule. So classic. So ginger beer-y. So... kind of boring. Head up to the Roof on Wilshire to rate their new menu of Mules spiked with rum, tequila, gin or vodka. You’re like the Nielsen of Mules.

Sunday
A $16 Cup of Coffee. Really.
GEISHA HOUSE

A $16 Cup of Coffee. Really.

Sunday morning coffee: a necessary ritual. Sunday morning $16 coffee: better be pretty special. Café Demitasse has some Geisha beans (they’re kind of a big deal) to brew this weekend, but only about 23 cups’ worth, so you have to reserve yours in advance. Actual geisha not included.

A Five-Wine Afternoon at Domaine LA
HIGH FIVE

A Five-Wine Afternoon at Domaine LA

If you find yourself hungry for a little snack on Sunday afternoon... you should probably loop in five wines as well. There’s a tasting party going down at this Melrose wine shop—with French food from the new bistro Papilles. But without all the bistro-ness.
