Who’s on first. The weekend’s on second.

Unionmade Is Cleaning House

Sure is getting hot these days. Kind of makes you want to toss all your pants and sweaters into the street. Semi-relatedly, Unionmade is now tossing Saltbox swim trunks and Sunspel T-shirts into your bag at 40% off. That works, too.

Ongoing, Unionmade, Brentwood Country Mart, 225 26th St, Santa Monica, 310-656-3373

Finally: Cocktails at the Little Door

You know the Little Door as a spot to hit for a special-occasion dinner in a very French garden courtyard... after getting drinks somewhere else first. Because for some crazy reason, they never had a full liquor license. Now they do. Let the Bourbon Bellinis flow.

Saturday
$2 Oysters at Bouchon
BLUE BASTILLE

$2 Oysters at Bouchon

July 14. Bastille Day. It’s a very important holiday. Because it was on this day in 2012 that you stormed the patio at Bouchon for $2 oysters, available all day long anywhere in the restaurant. History will look upon you favorably.

Sunday
A Massive Crawfish Boil on Melrose
BOILING POINT

A Massive Crawfish Boil on Melrose

As the (virtual) mercury climbs in your (phone’s) thermometer, you’re starting to feel like you live in the Deep South. Our advice: embrace it. Grab a table on the Foundry patio come Sunday, and for $25 they’ll get you all the crawfish and vodka-spiked punch you can put down. Nothing says “Deep South” like Melrose.
