PERK ALERT

Beer. Umami Burgers. Jason Bourne. Go...

Yours for 40 bucks: two VIP tickets to an outdoor screening of The Bourne Identity at the Grove—replete with Umami burgers and unlimited beer/wine. Also, for $100, you’re getting $150 worth of grooming essentials from the likes of Kiehl’s and Baxter Finley. Finally, here’s a secret grill... disguised as a potted plant. Bourne would approve...

Friday
Beer and Pants at Standard Goods
STANDARD PROCEDURE

Beer and Pants at Standard Goods

There’s a magazine party at Standard Goods on Friday. The mag’s called They, if you want to know. It’s artsy. Anyway, heads up: the party involves gratis beer and coincides with the shop’s summer sale, so half off pants and curios. In case you showed up to the party sans pants or curios.

Saturday
You, in a Sleeping Bag, in a Cemetery
IN THE BAG

You, in a Sleeping Bag, in a Cemetery

You’ve done some weird stuff at the Hollywood Forever cemetery—picnic and a movie is technically sort of weird—but you’ve probably never packed a sleeping bag. They’re hosting an all-nighter Saturday, with three movies, a photo booth, DJ Peanut Butter Wolf and gratis Intelligentsia coffee till dawn. Basically the best sleepover ever.

Sunday
Sunday Supper at Mercato di Vetro
VETROSEXUAL

Sunday Supper at Mercato di Vetro

Sunday evening. Time to wind things down. Maybe just a quick bite of salumi and buffalo mozzarella first. Turns out that’s just the first spread of a three-course Sunday feast at Mercato di Vetro’s new Sunday supper—and house bottles of red are 20 bucks. You can slow it down Monday.

Sundays starting Aug 19, Mercato di Vetro, 9077 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-859-8369

Monday
Burgers You Didn’t See Coming
DAYS OF HAVEN

Burgers You Didn’t See Coming

Haven already makes its own beer. But starting Monday, they’re stepping up their burger game. See, the back area shall be known as Burger Haven, and the menu’s got a half-dozen burgers like the McCormick Alley, topped with bacon-stout jam, or the Shake and Bake, which is chicken. Hey, that’s cheating.

Starts Aug 20, Haven, 42 S De Lacey Ave, Pasadena, 626-768-9555
