Things to do for July 26, 2012

The Weekender

Japanese Maids. German Beer. British Fried Chicken...

The weekend is putting the Chariots of Fire theme on repeat.

Thursday
RIP, Royal/T. It’s Been Fun.
MAID OUT

RIP, Royal/T. It’s Been Fun.

It was just your average, everyday art gallery/shop/café staffed with girls dressed as Japanese maids. And now, it’s closing. You’ve got time to pay your respects at a final two-night pop-up dinner—think 12 courses of Danish-Spanish randomness like chorizo sausage with succotash. Then the maids clean up.

1,000 Nights of Backstage Karaoke
MIC CHECK

1,000 Nights of Backstage Karaoke

Your stirring rendition of “Paradise City”: legendary in the annals of the Westside’s best dive bar. Tonight’s prime for an encore—it’s the 1,000th night of karaoke, and they’re slinging free mac and cheese, sliders and whiskey shots all night in celebration. As if your performance weren’t enough.

Friday
Meet the Parish. It’s a Pub.
A FINE PARISH

Meet the Parish. It’s a Pub.

If you’re ever in the mood for buttermilk fried chicken and some grilled corn with honeycomb butter from the Tasting Kitchen chef... well, you have some very specific moods. Also, go to the Parish. It’s a British gastropub and it opens tomorrow. The end.

Opens Jul 27, The Parish, 840 S Spring St, Downtown, 213-225-2400

Saturday
Tons of Apolis Loot at 90% Off
SALE-ING

Tons of Apolis Loot at 90% Off

So the Apolis Common Gallery. It’s a store, and this Saturday is a good time to visit. See, the place is turning into one big sale—swim trunks, sweaters and jackets, all going for as little as 10% of the going rate. So now you know what you’re wearing Sunday.

Jul 28, noon-7pm, Apolis, 806 E 3rd St, Downtown, 855-427-6547

Finally, Berlin Currywurst Has Beer
CURRY UP

Finally, Berlin Currywurst Has Beer

You know Berlin Currywurst. Awesome place for lunch on the patio. But as for liquid refreshment, you were kind of limited to things that lacked booze. Until now. Come by for dinner, and you can get your brat with a beer—like a Weihenstephaner Hefeweissbier on draft. You might’ve guessed it’s German.
