The Weekender

Beverly Hills Sushi and a Coachella Spin Class

The weekend wants what it wants.

Thursday
Sushi Alert: Yojisan Is Open
’SAN OF A GUN

Sushi Alert: Yojisan Is Open

You thought you’d hit every solid little sushi spot in Beverly Hills. But now there’s a new one. Yojisan, straight from a Drago brother and the chef at SHU, is open and overstuffed with sushi, sake, and red snapper and Asian pear carpaccio. Norwegian pear carpaccio would’ve been weird.

Now open, Yojisan, 260 N Beverly Dr, Beverly Hills, 424-245-3799

A Half-Dozen Wines at Buzz
A LITTLE BUZZED

A Half-Dozen Wines at Buzz

If you’re taking part in the Downtown art walk madness tonight, step into Buzz for a breather. And by a breather we mean six wines for $20, all from California. Warning: this may turn your art walk into an art sit.

Friday
Hollywood’s New Pop-Up Surf Shop
HANG 20

Hollywood’s New Pop-Up Surf Shop

When you think surfing, you don’t usually think Hollywood. But stop into the new pop-up shop on Cahuenga called Hellawood and you’ll find custom boards and surf-ish clothes from Lightning Bolt and Feal Mor. Perfect for that Johnny Utah look you’re cultivating.

Saturday
Coachella-Adjacent Partying at Saguaro
PALM SPRINGS ETERNAL

Coachella-Adjacent Partying at Saguaro

If your Coachella crash pad just fell through, fear not: the new Saguaro hotel still has vacancies. And guests get access to the on-site parties—including poolside blowouts DJ’d by the likes of Jason Bentley. Think of it as “Poolside Becomes Eclectic.”

Apr 13-15 and Apr 20-22, $380 and up, The Saguaro, 1800 E Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, 760-323-1711, reserve here

Coachella on Bikes, Sort Of
SOUL MUSIC

Coachella on Bikes, Sort Of

Or if you’re staying local this weekend, you can still get in your Coachella fix—at spin class. The new WeHo outpost of SoulCycle has a special session on Saturday that includes only songs from bands on the lineup. No, the class is not two weekends long.

Apr 14, 5pm, $25, SoulCycle, 8570 W Sunset Blvd, 310-657-7685
