5 Ways to Spend Labor Day Weekend

The weekend, now with 50% more weekend.

Thursday
Your New Place for Old Rock T-Shirts
COLE IN ONE

Your New Place for Old Rock T-Shirts

You might know the name Kelly Cole—the kind of guy who’s run legendary bars and DJ’d legendary parties. Now he’s also the kind of guy who wants to sell you some vintage rock T-shirts, artsy books and a badass leather jacket. Your kind of guy.  

Now open, Kelly Cole, 175 S La Brea Ave, 323-692-5012

Faux Pas Happy Hour. All Weekend.
FAUX REAL

Faux Pas Happy Hour. All Weekend.

For a three-day weekend, you’re going to need a serious happy hour on perpetual standby. No messing around. Faux Pas has a new one, and it’s a doozy—in short, drinks are two-for-one at the bar. Every day. All the time. Well, when they’re open.

Saturday
Silence of the Lambs, Now a Musical
SILENCE IS GOLDEN

Silence of the Lambs, Now a Musical

You’ve been thinking. Musicals these days are missing three key ingredients: cannibalism, creepy moths and lotion in baskets. Behold Silence! The Musical, the kind of creation that lets you take in some theater without things getting sappy. Unless you have a soft spot for moths.

Sunday
10 Hours of Bands and Beach
JUST DUNE IT

10 Hours of Bands and Beach

Bags are packed. Tank is full. A road trip is inevitable this weekend. Only problem: nobody figured out where. Head to Newport Beach on Sunday and you’ll find a new music fest with bands like Yacht and Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr right on the shore. Also inevitable this weekend: sand.

Monday
Your Labor Day Barbecue, Handled
NOT LABOR INTENSIVE

Your Labor Day Barbecue, Handled

You’ve got a huge barbecue planned. All you need is the burgers. And the St. Louis–style pork ribs. And the watermelon salad. And... actually, you’ve only gotten as far as inviting 300 people to your place. Luckily, the Larder at Tavern has a special takeout menu going for the holiday. Better call them. Now.
