Things to do for July 19, 2012

The Weekender

Rooftop Screenings at the Thompson and Other Weekend Essentials

The weekend wants what it wants.

Thursday
Café Gratitude: The Sequel
A LITTLE ’TUDE

Café Gratitude: The Sequel

You might’ve enjoyed some quinoa next to Colin Farrell over at the Larchmont outpost of Café Gratitude. Now next time you’re meeting a Westside-y, yoga-y, actress-y kind of person for a date or a script-note session, there’s a big, bright new outpost in Venice to make this work. Yes, vegans can still have beer.

Mohawk’s Big Summer Sale
LIKE A ’HAWK

Mohawk’s Big Summer Sale

These are confusing times. Cloudy-then-hot-then-cloudy-in-July kind of times. But hey, there’s a bunch of stuff up to half off at Mohawk General Store—Saltbox trunks, A.P.C. shirts, Tanner Goods leather gear—that’ll help you get through... whatever’s going on outside.

Saturday
An Out-of-the-Way New Record Shop
RECORD BREAKING

An Out-of-the-Way New Record Shop

Mount Analog is a new vinyl shop. You’ll find lots of vinyl. Everything from new wave to indie rock. But you’ll also find arty books, speakers, old movie posters, maybe a live band playing or a film screening. Handy in case you were looking for those things.

Now open, Mount Analog, 5906 1/2 N Figueroa St, Highland Park, 323-474-6649

Sunday
Your Sunday Beachside Luau
EXPRESS YOURSELF

Your Sunday Beachside Luau

If you haven’t capped off a beach day with SHOREbar yet, Sunday’s your day. They’re opening an hour early with a full-on luau to launch the Pineapple Express truck, serving up poke and 12-hour-roasted-pork sandwiches from a major Hawaiian chef. No James Franco or Seth Rogen. As far as we know.

Tuesday
Rooftop Cinema at the Thompson
MOULIN ROOF

Rooftop Cinema at the Thompson

Date-night popcorn at a movie theater: expected. Date-night popcorn on a Beverly Hills rooftop: that’s better. Your tickets to the Thompson’s new weekly film series—next up is Moulin Rouge—include popcorn and soda, but you can add on everything from hot dogs to caviar. Usually you have to sneak in your caviar.
