A Weekend Full of Brunch, Beach and Bond

In a weekend where nothing is as it seems...

PERK ALERT

Trying Rivera’s New Menu First

Chilies. Corn. Squash. Beans. And... tequila. These are the key ingredients in Rivera’s new Hallucination menu, which you can try before anyone else thanks to Perks. We also put you and a guest on the list for Mondrian’s Thursday night patio party and are hooking you up with a handsome box of inspiration from Phaidon—for 30% off.

AL B. SHORE

A Beachside Happy Hour till 10pm

Don’t tell summer it was supposed to depart weeks ago. Instead, take this glorious weather as your cue to hit SHOREbar’s new happy hour for $3 beers or a $7 Dark and Stormy, steps from the beach. Critical factor: this thing goes until 10pm. The happiest of hours.

Tue-Sat, 7-10pm, SHOREbar, 112 W Channel Rd, Santa Monica, 310-429-1851

Lots of Agents, Lots of Sandwiches
MADE IN THE UTA

Lots of Agents, Lots of Sandwiches

Like corporations, agents are people, too. They get hungry for raspberry corn muffins and grilled cheese sandwiches. Next time you’ve got a meeting at UTA, you too can get your fix—there’s a new Clementine in the back of the building’s plaza. No word on if you’ll be forced to fork over 10% of your crust.

Now open, Clementine, 9346 Civic Center Dr, Beverly Hills, 310-461-0600

Friday
James Bond Goes to the Symphony
FULLY BONDED

James Bond Goes to the Symphony

Friday night: your standing night at the symphony. Okay, maybe not. But this week, there’s an orchestra doing The Music of Bond: The First 50 Years, including songs and scores from all the James Bond movies since Dr. No premiered 50 years ago. You’ll probably want a martini beforehand.

Sunday
Superba Brunch—It. Is. On.
BIRD, PLANE, SUPERBA

Superba Brunch—It. Is. On.

If you haven’t yet been to Superba Snack Bar, you... just kidding. Everybody’s been to Superba. And now they’re appeasing the weekend hordes starting at 10am with fried poached eggs, mole meatballs and fried chicken with kimchi ketchup. The people have spoken. They demand kimchi ketchup.

Fri, 11am-3pm; Sat-Sun, 10am-3pm; Superba Snack Bar, 533 Rose Ave, Venice, 310-399-6400

A Total Sausagefest at FIG

Okay, let’s discuss the term “sausagefest.” Actually, let’s never do that. But as for Sunday’s event called Sausagefest, chefs from Bierbeisl, Cooks County and Ray’s are showing up at FIG to grill up all the sausage you could ever want, and there’s plenty of good beer to go around. Sausagefest it is.

Oct 7, 5-8pm, $69, FIG, 101 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, 310-319-3111, tickets here
