Things to do for October 23, 2008

The Weekender

Liquid Brunch, Tokyo Style and Underground Gin

The weekend isn't spilling about its costume yet. But it's good.

Thursday
KZO at Legion
IN TRANSLATION

KZO at Legion

Long after you honed your California-meets-Tokyo style, the Larchmont crowds will now follow suit by checking out the five-day KZO pop-up shop inside Legion. You're leading the international pack as always...

Oct 23-27, Legion, 141 1/2 N. Larchmont Blvd (S. of Beverly), Hancock Park, 323-871-1900

Friday
Soup Kitchen at the Edison
HALF FULL

Soup Kitchen at the Edison

This just in—times are tough. But free tomato soup and grilled cheese might help, along with a 35-cent glass half full of bourbon or gin. A cut of the night's proceeds go to the Downtown Mission, so the warm feeling in your stomach isn't just from the soup (or bourbon).

Fridays 5-7pm, The Edison, 108 W. 2nd St, #101 (at Main), Downtown, 213-613-0000

Saturday
Suit Yourself at John Varvatos
SUIT UP

Suit Yourself at John Varvatos

If you're in the market for a new suit, we suggest paying the Varvatos crew a visit this weekend—find one you like, and the shirt and tie's on them. As are the drinks in your hand while you weigh your options. Take your time...

Sunday
Brunch at Little Dom's
LIQUID BRUNCH

Brunch at Little Dom's

The eastside favorite's new brunch menu now includes $10 bottles of Prosecco (or the house red). Consider it a new start to an old tradition—when you move to sister restaurant Dominick's later for the generally blowout-ish Sunday Supper, toast with another $10 bottle of red.

Every Sat-Sun, 8am-3pm, Little Dom's, 2128 Hillhurst Ave (between Los Feliz and Franklin), Los Feliz, 323-661-0055

Monday
Urth Caffe Opens Downtown
MELROSE-FREE

Urth Caffe Opens Downtown

At Urth's latest outpost, you can expect all the organic coffee, oversized smoothies and generous patio space you've come to expect from the Melrose legend. Probably a few less actors wearing knit skullcaps in 90-degree weather, though, which is fine by you.

Soft-opens Oct 27, Urth Caffe, 451 S. Hewitt St (S. of 4th), Downtown, 213-797-4536
