Things to do for October 09, 2008

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend could really use a weekend.

Thursday
Foxtail Evolves
THURSDAY TAKE TWO

Foxtail Evolves

As of tonight, your power dinners at Foxtail are no more—they've been replaced with power dancing and power general debauchery. The upstairs lounge and club have taken over the downstairs dining room, and you've never said no to an extra dance floor...

411: Now open Mon and Thu-Sat until 2am, 9077 Santa Monica Blvd (at Doheny), West Hollywood, 310-859-8369

Thursday
Fall into Skybar
THURSDAY TAKE TWO AGAIN

Fall into Skybar

And speaking of nightlife evolution, the velvet-ropey pool bar at the Mondrian is now aiming to draw something entirely new and different on Thursdays—hipsters east of Hillhurst. Treat them kindly, as they're far removed from their natural habitat.

411: Thursdays, 9pm-2am, Skybar, 8440 W. Sunset Blvd (E. of La Cienega), West Hollywood, 323-650-8999, email for table reservations

Saturday
Lovelace: A Rock Opera
SATURDAY SCANDAL

Lovelace: A Rock Opera

Perhaps a bit of musical theater for you this weekend—like a new rock opera based on the life of the first real adult-film megastar, Linda "Deep Throat" Lovelace. The whole thing was co-written by one of the Go-Go's, straying far from the days of "Our Lips are Sealed." In many ways.

411: Previews begin Oct 11, The Hayworth Theatre, 2509 Wilshire Blvd (between Coronado and Carondelet), 323-960-4442

Monday
Mondays at X bar
MONDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL

Mondays at X bar

Sure, your big-screen is impressive, but a ten-foot outdoor screening wall for the big game works too. Beer, well drinks, wine and Fiery Chicken Morsels are half-price for two-and-a-half hours every Monday. Call your not-so-rowdy friends...

411: Mondays, 4-6:30pm, X bar, 2025 Avenue of the Stars (at Constellation), Century City, 310-551-3248

Tuesday
Canter's 60th Anniversary
TUESDAY CORNED BEEF

Canter's 60th Anniversary

Among LA's more important rites of passage: a 3am Canter's run. Celebrating 60 years of matzo balls and surly service at this Fairfax location, the 24-hour deli is slinging 60-cent corned beef sandwiches until midnight. But you can still go back at 3am.

411: Oct 14, noon-midnight, Canter's, 419 N. Fairfax Ave (N. of Beverly), 323-651-2030
