The Weekender

Fried Chicken and a Lingerie Tent (Not Together)

The weekend marches to its own drum.

Thursday
4 New Perks
PERKS

4 New Perks

This week Perks is feeling dirty, with an overflowing gift basket of deals that just keeps on giving—lingerie, flowers, sex accoutrements and spanking classes. Approach with wild abandon.

Recession Thursdays at South
PORKING

Recession Thursdays at South

So there's Southern hospitality, and then there's unloading two-dollar Pulled Pork Sandwiches to be washed down with two-dollar shots. Thankfully for you and everyone you bring to this Wilshire bar, that whole secession thing never panned out.

Thursdays, 5pm-midnight, South, 3001 Wilshire Blvd (at Stanford), Santa Monica, 310-828-9988

Hey Jerrie
DRUMS

Hey Jerrie

Most drummers have lived lives mere mortals can only imagine—like 91-year-old local legend Jerrie Thill, who's been in all-girl rock bands since, oh, the '30s. At tonight's blowout honoring her new video, there'll be an open oxygen bar (she's on an oxygen tank, but that doesn't stop her) and...an open regular bar.

Feb 5, 6pm-midnight, Ghettogloss, 2380 Glendale Blvd (between Deane and Brier), Silver Lake, 323-912-0008

Saturday
Charlie's Malibu Now Open
STEAK

Charlie's Malibu Now Open

In the quickly gutted former home of Allegria, you'll now find Rosemary Skewered Shrimp, steaks and a beer selection curated by the omnipresent Beer Chick. They'll also have their own brew from Skyscraper brewery any day now—so the new owner's priorities seem to be in order.

22821 Pacific Coast Highway (E. of Malibu Pier), Malibu, 310-456-3132

Sunday
Family-Style Fried Chicken at Tower Bar
SKIN

Family-Style Fried Chicken at Tower Bar

Inside the Sunset Tower Hotel, you expect to see suits pretending not to ogle Jennifer Aniston. You don't expect a platter of fried chicken with veggies, mashed potatoes and chocolate cake for 25 bucks a person. But you've always liked surprises. And eight-dollar spiked lemonades.

Sundays and Mondays starting Feb 8, Tower Bar, 8358 W. Sunset Blvd (between Sweetzer and Olive), 323-848-6677

Tuesday
The Lake and Stars at Ten Over Six
GARTERS

The Lake and Stars at Ten Over Six

To properly celebrate a temporary indoor tent filled with lingerie—your favorite kind of tent—you're invited to a pre-Valentine's Day party at Beverly Boulevard shop Ten Over Six. Indie crooner Samantha Shelton, who used to sing with Zooey Deschanel, has already RSVPed.

Party Feb 10, 7pm, tent in store through Feb 21, Ten Over Six, 7427 Beverly Blvd (at Vista), 323-330-9355
