Things to do for November 01, 2012

The Weekender

Truffle Burgers, Oliver Stone and Darts

The weekend already has its costume for next year.

Thursday
30% Off Your Thanksgiving Turkey
PERK ALERT

30% Off Your Thanksgiving Turkey

This year, you’re getting the most prized breed of turkeys—a USDA Grade A, all-natural beauty from Robinson’s—delivered, for 30% off. And since you’ll need something to carve it with, we’re getting you up to 64% off the sharpest knives on earth. And, not Thanksgiving-y, but still: some handsome, exclusive vintage furniture.

A New Tavern Called Hyperion Public
GOING PUBLIC

A New Tavern Called Hyperion Public

After all the Halloween crazy, you shouldn’t be judged for craving a low-key spot to grab a beer. Catch the game. Spot some hipsters. Shoot some darts. Unless you’re somewhere that isn’t Hyperion Public, the new Silver Lake bar. Then you might be judged.

A Happy Half Hour at Mo-Chica
30 IS THE NEW 30

A Happy Half Hour at Mo-Chica

So, Ricardo Zarate. Might’ve heard of him. Best Peruvian chef in the country, the world—maybe Mars, now that we’re on Mars. He didn’t need to dock 30% off every single thing on the Mo-Chica menu for 30 minutes daily. He just wanted to. You should reward this behavior.

Nov 1-30, 5:30-6pm, Mo-Chica, 514 W 7th St, Downtown, 213-622-3744

The Sexiest Paper-Doll Show Ever
CENSOR OVERLOAD

The Sexiest Paper-Doll Show Ever

For some culture tonight, may we suggest an art show called Uncensored. It’s photographs of a nubile naked lady. With tiny little paper dolls on her body. We’re not sure why. That’s where the art comes in. And they’ll have Smoke Martinis, whose smoke comes from whiskey. That’s where the art comes in... again.

Opening reception Nov 1, 7-10pm (show open to public through Nov 4), Illoulian Contemporary, 146 N Clark Dr, West Hollywood, 310-289-1895

Friday
A History Lesson from Oliver Stone
STONE COLD

A History Lesson from Oliver Stone

Friday night: time for history class. Taught by Oliver Stone. He’s got some ideas about what’s really gone on these last few decades, and he’s put them into a new book. And a 10-part Showtime series. And a lecture at Book Soup. That last one’s Friday. He wouldn’t dispute that.

Nov 2, 7pm, no cost (book $30), Book Soup, 8818 W Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-659-3110

Saturday
Just Your Everyday $500 Truffle Burger
TRUFFLE SHUFFLE

Just Your Everyday $500 Truffle Burger

Sometimes you just need a quick drive-through burger in your face. Any burger will do. And sometimes... you need a glittering Beverly Hills hotel pool. Some candlelight. You and your $500 burger, topped with white truffles and truffle cheese. Getting to know each other slowly. Turns out, you’re a match.

Available now (48-hour notice required), Oliverio at Avalon Hotel, 9400 W Olympic Blvd, Beverly Hills, 310-407-7791
