Things to do for March 08, 2013

The Weekender

Sushi, Tacos and Nicholson

The weekend just walked a mile in your shoes.

Friday
Last Call. Beet Juice for Everyone.
CLOVER AND ABOVE

Last Call. Beet Juice for Everyone.

You could close down the Churchill tonight. Again. Or you could cut out 15 minutes early and hit up the new Clover takeaway window next door—it’s the second outpost of the same owners’ juice-bar-and-sandwich situation. Get the Go Big (beets, kale, carrot...), then go home.

Lunch. Nobu Malibu. Go.
THE MORE YOU NOBU

Lunch. Nobu Malibu. Go.

You’ve casually noticed a staggeringly majestic sunset over Nobu Malibu’s deck once or twice at dinner. Sort of distracting. When you want to focus on the task at hand—say, sushi and a handshake deal—book lunch instead. They do that now. There’s nothing distracting about lunch on the beach.

So King Eddy Is Back, Sort Of
EDDY OR NOT

So King Eddy Is Back, Sort Of

This just in: Downtown is changing. Take the King Eddy Saloon, that most infamous of infamous dive bars. New owners closed it for renovation, and you thoughtfully pondered the end of an era. Now it’s soft-open, and you... well, we’ll see what you do. We wouldn’t want to be presumptuous.

Saturday
A Nicholson Triple-Header
JUST JACK

A Nicholson Triple-Header

We live in a golden age of cinema—an age when it’s really easy to go see great old movies. Saturday at the Cinematheque, you’ll find three classic Jack Nicholson road pics—Easy Rider, Five Easy Pieces, The Last Detail—back-to-back. To back.

Sunday
Like Zankou Chicken for Tacos
ARA YOU KIDDING

Like Zankou Chicken for Tacos

So, Zankou Chicken. Maybe you’ve heard of it. Maybe you’ve got leftovers in your fridge right now. Anyway, the founder’s son wants to make Zankou-size waves on the taco circuit—he just opened Ara’s Tacos, named after his brother. Funny. You always name your tacos, too.

Now open, Ara’s Tacos, 901 W Glenoaks Blvd, Glendale, 818-547-5461
