Things to do for May 31, 2012

The Weekender

Brunch Burgers, Spiked Snow Cones and 200 Marilyns

Save a horse, ride the weekend.

Thursday
Spiked Snow Cones at Casa del Mar
HITTING YOUR MAR

Spiked Snow Cones at Casa del Mar

It’s officially summer. Not because of the weather—because finally you can get a bunch of spiked snow cones at a beachside hotel. You’ll probably want the carrot-rosemary concoction, whose key ingredient is nine ounces of whiskey. And ice. The ice is important, too.

Available now at Casa del Mar, 1910 Ocean Way, Santa Monica, 310-581-5533

Just a Ton of Sharp Gear, on the Cheap
BARNEYS RUBBLE

Just a Ton of Sharp Gear, on the Cheap

If you just looked into your closet and you’re suddenly tired of everything you own—a) huh, and b) good timing. Barneys is hosting a pretty giant blowout, with everything from Rag & Bone shirts to A.P.C. jeans at 40% off to help you overhaul. Or you could just, like, buy some socks.

LESS IS MO

Mo-chica Is Reborn. Discuss.

So, Mo-chica. Best Peruvian food since the dawn of mankind, or of Peru, or whatever. You may have heard of it. And now it’s in a new spot—bigger, graffiti-er and now with sneakers hanging from the ceiling. Finally, Chef Zarate heard your cries vis-à-vis ceiling sneakers.

Now open, Mo-chica, 514 W 7th St, Downtown, 213-622-3744

Friday
Your Week with Marilyn
BLONDES PREFERRED

Your Week with Marilyn

Film festivals are a dime a dozen in this town, but there’s only one devoted solely to seven nights of Marilyn Monroe. Tomorrow’s kickoff at the Chinese—Some Like It Hot, of course—includes a look-alike contest, and the first 200 get in for free. You always wanted to surround yourself with Marilyns.

Sunday
Barbrix Finally Gets Brunchy
RAISING THE BARBRIX

Barbrix Finally Gets Brunchy

You’ve got your brunch go-tos, and you’ve got your wine bar go-tos. In the interest of streamlining, you should know that Barbrix is now taking care of both—with crab hash, banh mi and your more standard bacon and eggs... on top of a half-pound burger. PS: the wine didn’t go anywhere...

Sat-Sun, 11am-3pm, Barbrix, 2442 Hyperion Ave, Silver Lake, 323-662-2442
