Things to do for April 06, 2012

The Weekender

Bellinis, Five-Second Films and a New Pool Hall

The weekend delivers a surprisingly nuanced performance.

Friday
The Brickyard Pub Is Now Open
BY THE YARD

The Brickyard Pub Is Now Open

Next time you’re in the mood for some billiards and 75 beer options—and you’re in North Hollywood—we’re pretty sure you’re going to end up at the Brickyard Pub. The question, really, is when aren’t you in the mood for those things.

Your Opening Ceremony Loot: 70% Off
GRAND OPENING

Your Opening Ceremony Loot: 70% Off

Now is the time to navigate the Opening Ceremony labyrinth. By the time you leave it, you may have picked up some Gitman Bros. button-downs and Rachel Comey boots at up to 70% off. The sale tags are sort of like bread crumbs.

Through Apr 30 in-store and online, Opening Ceremony, 451 N La Cienega Blvd, 310-652-1120

Saturday
Introducing the Venice Meet
MEET MARKET

Introducing the Venice Meet

This weekend you need some pastries, shoes, shaved ice, live music and maybe a T-shirt from a truck. You could either: A) spend the entire weekend in traffic as you make your rounds, or B) head to the Venice Meet, a new monthly outdoor market on Abbot Kinney. Tough call.

Sunday
Bottomless Bellinis at Mr. C
VITAMIN C

Bottomless Bellinis at Mr. C

Whether or not you celebrate Easter, you do celebrate bottomless brunch. Over at Mr. C on Sunday, they’ll have a spread of beef carpaccio, halibut and a pile of desserts waiting, along with all the Bellinis you can drink. And some beds, if you need one. Those are always there.

Apr 8, 11am-3pm, $65, Mr. C, 1224 Beverwil Dr, 310-226-6245

Tuesday
Finally, a Five-Second Film Festival
HIGH FIVE

Finally, a Five-Second Film Festival

Citizen Kane is fine and all, but 119 minutes is a bit much—you’ve got things to do. Echo Park’s finest cavern of beer is screening a lineup of movies clocking in at five whopping seconds each, with a special cocktail made of coffee, stout and whiskey to wash them down. Don’t blink.

Apr 10, 17 and 24, 6-9pm, Mohawk Bend, 2141 W Sunset Blvd, 213-483-2337
