Things to do for January 15, 2009

The Weekender

Kebabs and Beer, Wine and Lingerie

The weekend is in a Sundance state of mind.

Thursday
Let's Be Frank at Silver Lake Wine
CART BLANCHE

Let's Be Frank at Silver Lake Wine

You were hoping that the '08 dry run of the hot-dog cart parked outside the raucous tastings at Silver Lake Wine would be a success. Surprise—it was. It'll now be here every week, starting tonight.

Thursdays, 5-11pm, outside Silver Lake Wine, 2395 Glendale Blvd (at Brier), Silver Lake, 323-662-9024

Spitz Grand Opening Party
KICKOFF

Spitz Grand Opening Party

Sure, it technically opened a while ago, but the men behind your new favorite kebab-and-brew den kindly waited until you were back from the holidays to properly celebrate the debut. And by celebrate we mean $2 beers and half-off everything on the menu.

Jan 15, 7pm-12am, 371 E. 2nd St (between San Pedro and Central), Downtown, 213-613-0101

Friday
Kiki De Montparnasse
SALE-ING

Kiki De Montparnasse

You've been considering your purchases a bit more carefully lately, with a new emphasis on charity. So you might feel extremely generous at this swank lingerie shop—current stock is 40 percent off, and past seasons have been marked down by 60 percent. You're a giver.

Through January, 8280 Melrose Ave (E. of Sweetzer), 323-951-954

Saturday
Pizzeria Ortica Now Open
ROAD TRIP

Pizzeria Ortica Now Open

You had to get out of town—but suddenly you felt way too far away from the man who gave you Sona and Comme Ça. Not to worry, David Myers is now behind the Orange Curtain too, slinging pizzas topped with fennel pollen and house-cured pork cheek. (La Cienega outpost coming soon.)

Now open for lunch, dinner in a few weeks, 650 Anton Blvd, Suite J, Costa Mesa, 714-445-4900

Steven Alan Outpost Opens
SHOP

Steven Alan Outpost Opens

You're already a fan of the button-ups and other dapper basics to be found on Robertson. The new Los Feliz shop is like that, except much inside is 30-75 percent off, all the time. That works too.

Opens Jan 17, 1937 1/2 Hillhurst Ave (N. of Franklin), Los Feliz, 323-667-9500
