Things to do for May 24, 2012

The Weekender

Endless Tacos, Reservoir Dogs and New Brunch

Utah, get the weekend three.

Thursday
Pig’s Ears in a Downtown Farmhouse
INDUSTRIEL REVOLUTION

Pig’s Ears in a Downtown Farmhouse

Sometimes you think you could give up the city for life on a farm. All you’d need is a little two-story place full of smoked octopus, crispy pig’s ears and pastoral views of... telecom buildings. Actually, you should probably just go here—a rustic new restaurant on Grand.

Now open, Industriel, 609 S Grand Ave, Downtown, 213-488-8020

Friday
A Drink-Along Tarantino Double Feature
ACT NATURAL

A Drink-Along Tarantino Double Feature

Friday night is a really big night: some friends are catching What to Expect When You’re Expecting. While you’re catching a cocktail-friendly Reservoir Dogs/Natural Born Killers double feature. Your first drink is included in the ticket price, and the cash bar stays open during showtime. Shots every time somebody swears...

Saturday
Brick Comes to Brentwood
BRICK ROLLED

Brick Comes to Brentwood

If you see a large man looking out of place in Brentwood—his bicep roughly the size of your head—he’s not lost. He’s going to the sleek new outpost of Brick Sport Performance to run a crazy boot-camp-style circuit class. Follow him, then pay him to yell at you.

Fig & Olive’s Brunch Trifecta
OLIVE THE ABOVE

Fig & Olive’s Brunch Trifecta

Time for a new holiday-weekend tradition—like the three-course brunch that just launched at Fig & Olive. Think gazpacho, poached eggs and biscotti, and an included first cocktail. Which means next weekend might be time to launch a non-holiday-weekend tradition.

Sat-Sun (and May 28), 11am, $28, Fig & Olive, 8490 Melrose Pl, West Hollywood, 310-360-9100

Tuesday
Endless Tacos from an Indoor Truck
CALLE OF THE WILD

Endless Tacos from an Indoor Truck

The time: 1:30am. The scene: You just saw LP and/or Tony Bennett rock the Sayers Club. So, naturally, you’ll be needing a whole lot of tacos from a food truck parked inside a restaurant around the corner—and Tuesdays at Calle, all tacos are now 99 cents. Guess they don’t need gas money.

Tuesdays, 11am-2am, Calle Tacos, 6508 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 323-465-9100
