The Weekender

Oysters, Lingerie and Canada. This Is Your Weekend.

A watched weekend never boils.

Thursday
Meet the Oyster Gourmet
SHELL GAME

Meet the Oyster Gourmet

If you haven’t yet met the Oyster Gourmet, well... his name is the Oyster Gourmet. He’s spending a lot more time at Church & State these days, and he’s bringing his pop-up oyster bar and some shallot and vinegar mignonette. And oysters. Lots of oysters.

Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6pm, Church & State, 1850 Industrial St, Downtown, 213-405-1434

Piles and Piles of Half-Off Lingerie
SALE-ING

Piles and Piles of Half-Off Lingerie

Everybody’s wearing less clothing this time of year. You support this. In many forms. One example: heading over to the big sale at Agent Provocateur, so you can gift somebody special a bunch of half-off lingerie. Half-off as in marked down by 50%. Just to be clear.

Saturday
Endless Poutine in Westwood
BLAME CANADA

Endless Poutine in Westwood

Call it a hunch: you’ve got a wild Friday night in store. Call it another hunch: Saturday morning, you might need to visit a new poutine bar, where you can get a mound of cheesy, gravy-y fries topped with everything from filet mignon to mussels. And a Dirty French Canadian. That’s a drink.

Now open, P’tit Soleil, 1386 Westwood Blvd, Westwood, 310-441-5384

Monday
Dinner in a Department Store
RAISING THE BARNEYS

Dinner in a Department Store

Shopping for pants always makes you hungry. Or not. Either way, chef Laurent Quenioux—the wild Frenchman from Bistro LQ—is popping up at the restaurant inside Barneys for three nights of rabbit tartare, lamb loin and wine. There’s a strict no-return policy.

Jul 8-10, Barney Greengrass at Barneys, 9570 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, reserve at 310-777-5877
