Things to do for October 25, 2012

The Weekender

A Weekend of Costumes, Clue and... Oysters

The weekend is dressing as Wednesday for Halloween.

Thursday
Friday
Short Rib Manwiches After Dark
COMING UP SHORT RIB

Short Rib Manwiches After Dark

It’s midnight. You’re craving some burlesque, a Short Rib Manwich and a Beer, Bourbon & Bacon. (It’s a drink. There’s bacon-infused bourbon happening.) First of all, your cravings are oddly specific. Secondly, you’d better hit the new 11pm late-night party at Trattoria Neapolis. Yes, 11pm is late-night in Pasadena.

Bobbing for Apples at Villains Tavern
UP AT THE VILLAINS

Bobbing for Apples at Villains Tavern

Friday at Villains Tavern: the kind of debaucherous 11-hour pig roast that involves crazy Halloween costumes, whiskey, apple bobbing, live music and giant Jenga. Saturday at Villains Tavern: they do it all again. Consider these your official Halloween pre-pre-party and pre-party, respectively.

Sunday
Sneaking Drinks Like It’s Prohibition
FULL MOONSHINE

Sneaking Drinks Like It’s Prohibition

Good thing you weren’t around during Prohibition. Wouldn’t have been pretty. Although... there’s an allure to sneaking past a shifty doorman into an illicit cove of housemade moonshine. The new “Prohibition Days” series at Next Door Lounge means live music, secret specials (hint: Facebook is your guide) and moonshine Manhattans. Sadly, it’s legal.

A Downtown Drive-In Reborn
DRIVE

A Downtown Drive-In Reborn

Rooftops are good for many things—but mostly as places to park your car and watch a movie. Sunday marks the debut of the Electric Dusk Drive-In, which will bring in carhops for monthly-ish screenings of modern cinema’s most important masterpieces. Like the first one: Clue. (It’s the Citizen Kane of board game movies.)

Monday
Half-Off Oysters by the Beach
HEROES IN A HALF SHELL

Half-Off Oysters by the Beach

No, seriously—summer in November. Make it a thing. You’ll need sunglasses. You’ll need the top down. You’ll need a bunch of friends on the patio by the beach at the Hungry Cat, putting down half-price oysters every Monday for the foreseeable future. You can do this.

Mondays, 5pm-close, The Hungry Cat, 100 W Channel Rd, Santa Monica, 310-459-3337
