Things to do for March 22, 2012

The Weekender

Beer Cocktails, Car Racing and 24 Hours of Donuts

The weekend is getting an uncredited rewrite.

Thursday
A Pop-Up Sale. In a Hotel. With Drinks.
CHECKING IN

A Pop-Up Sale. In a Hotel. With Drinks.

Usually, you go to a hotel lobby for drinks. Or, like, to get a room. But tonight you’ll go to the Palihouse lobby for shirts. There’s a pop-up sale happening with loot from the likes of Riviera Club at 50% to 75% off. Also, drinks.

Dixie Tavern Is Now Open
HEART OF DIXIE

Dixie Tavern Is Now Open

Some nights, you long for foie gras martinis under diamond chandeliers. Other nights, you’re in Sherman Oaks and you just need a stool, a cold beer and a burger with an egg on it. Say hello to the Dixie Tavern. It’s for the latter.

Now open, Dixie Tavern, 13359 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, 818-986-2000

Saturday
24 Hours of Free Donuts
ALL NIGHT LONG

24 Hours of Free Donuts

At LACMA on Saturday, there’s a screening of a 24-hour film about clocks. (So LACMA.) Oh, and a 24-hour donut pop-up across the street in conjunction with the screening, stocked with everything from Randy’s to Fonuts. What donuts have to do with clocks is anyone’s guess, but hey, free donuts.

Monday
A “Class” with Beer and Fried Chicken
GETTING SCHOOLED

A “Class” with Beer and Fried Chicken

You may want to sign up for Public School 612’s Monday evening class. Reason being: it’s not really a class at all. You’ll get four beer cocktails—like a Beericano, with vermouth, Campari and IPA—paired with food like fried chicken on a stick. You almost majored in that.

Tuesday
Miniature Car Racing at Bigfoot Lodge
DUDE, WHERE’S MY...

Miniature Car Racing at Bigfoot Lodge

Starting this Tuesday and continuing on the last Tuesday of every month, Bigfoot Lodge is setting up a Boy Scout–style pinewood derby racetrack. Five bucks gets you a kit to build a little car, and five more gets you a tiny glass of milk. Just kidding, it gets you some whiskey.

Monthly starting Mar 27, 9pm, Bigfoot Lodge, 3172 Los Feliz Blvd, 323-662-9227
