The Weekender

Oysters, Ping-Pong and Hanging Poolside with Bill Cosby

Sometimes you have to stop and smell the weekend.

Thursday
Cliff’s Edge Gets an Oyster Bar
EDGE OF REASON

Cliff’s Edge Gets an Oyster Bar

Abscond to dinner on the lush Cliff’s Edge patio tonight and you’ll see something pretty enticing—the service bar is now... an oyster bar. There’s a 19th-century chandelier. There’s a mirror that lists the specials. But most importantly, there are oysters. Twenty bucks should get you a dozen. And you’re set.

Launches Jun 14, Cliff’s Edge, 3626 W Sunset Blvd, Silver Lake, 323-666-6116

Friday
Gratis Pastrami at Langer’s
AULD LANGER’S SYNE

Gratis Pastrami at Langer’s

Langer’s deli is 65 years young, and to celebrate, they’re giving you free sandwiches. (No need to tell them birthday gifts usually flow in the other direction.) Grab a stool or a table, and they’ll bring you their most popular sandwich—the #19, but you knew that—on the house.

Jun 15-16, Langer’s, 704 S Alvarado St, 213-483-8050

Hanging Poolside with Bill Cosby
COSBY AND EFFECT

Hanging Poolside with Bill Cosby

And speaking of impressive birthdays, you might’ve heard the Beverly Hills Hotel is celebrating its 100th this weekend. Stop over by the pool and you’ll be greeted with jazz, comedians... and Bill Cosby himself. Choose your sweater carefully.

Saturday
Weekend BBQs at Wolfslair
HUNGRY LIKE A WOLF

Weekend BBQs at Wolfslair

Wolfslair’s doing barbecues on their patio all summer, replete with $2 mimosas, plenty of burgers and sausages on the grill. Plus they found tables that facilitate ping-pong and foosball. Also: some other tables you can eat on.

Sunday
Six Courses with Beer for Father’s Day
FATHER TIME

Six Courses with Beer for Father’s Day

If you haven’t yet lined up your Father’s Day plans, we can help you out. Drago Centro has six courses of truffle agnolotti, pork belly and lamb osso buco. Also, six courses of beer to coincide. So this works out pretty well for you, too.
