Things to do for November 29, 2012
Comedy, Kerouac and French Dates
Critics are calling the weekend a visionary masterpiece.
Hey, It’s a New French Date Spot
If you need a discreet place to take Marion Cotillard so you can talk Oscar shop, there’s an airy new French bistro on Grand that’s stocked with beef Bourgogne, French onion soup and plenty of wine. If you want to take someone else, that’s okay, too.
Square One Gets a Dinner Situation
Sure, Square One’s breakfast is great. But they’ve always left you hanging for dinner. And... they still do. But pick up the phone today. Because another chef (goes by the name Jeremy Fox) wants to make you four courses after dark. Maybe duck consommé and cool pumpkin chowder. Cool as in temperature, not status.
Five Days of Beat Movies on Fairfax
William Burroughs. Allen Ginsberg. Kristen Stewart. All are present and accounted for at the new Cinefamily festival—think five days of movies about the Beat Generation. Yes, this includes a free screening of the new On the Road movie, costarring the Twilight muse. Goes without saying that Kerouac would’ve loved Breaking Dawn.
The Groundlings Holiday Show Is Here
1) Spiked eggnog. 2) Spiked cider. 3) Seeing the Groundlings doing something wildly inappropriate involving Mrs. Claus. There are some holiday traditions you’re pretty stubborn about indulging, and that includes festive sketch comedy from the troupe that birthed Will Ferrell. But for the record, we support all three.
90% Off at Apolis: Common Gallery
First there was Black Friday. Then there was Cyber Monday. Then there was today. Thursday. Which isn’t a thing. Anyway, Saturday, there’s another important shopping scenario—a sample sale at which you pick up Apolis denim, blazers, oxfords and jackets at discounts of up to 90%. Some might even be gifts.
