The Weekender

The Weekender

The weekend will not be played off the stage.

Thursday
Guild Discounts at Marty D's
HOT DOG

Guild Discounts at Marty D's

Industry vet and eight-inch-hot-dog king Marty Davidson is now offering a 15-percent discount to anyone flashing a WGA, SAG, DGA or AMPAS card. If you hear him thanked on Sunday, you'll know why.

Marty D's, 230 S. Beverly Dr (S. of Wilshire), Beverly Hills, 310-273-7771

Friday
Santa Monica Seafood Now Open
GO FISH

Santa Monica Seafood Now Open

The fresh-fish institution since '39 has moved into a shiny new home, with room for an oyster bar, indoor-outdoor cafe and a gleaming 60-foot glass counter. Every piece of fish is labeled with a suggested pairing from the wine shop, so there's no pressure to, like, think.

1000 Wilshire Blvd (at 10th), Santa Monica, 310-393-5244

Sunday
Oscar Speech Generator
SPEECH

Oscar Speech Generator

On Sunday you could grab the gold for your work as [title], but you've been far too busy [verb]-ing that [noun] to write that [adjective] speech. Not to worry, plug in a few keywords and Atom's website will write it for you. [Applause.]

Monday
Mod Mondays at Bar Lubitsch
ENGLISH ON IT

Mod Mondays at Bar Lubitsch

A Russian-themed vodka den might not be the first place you'd seek a far-out mod night of '60s soul soaked in Rickeys. But the owners are warming up for an English bar at the Coronet, so Russian Rickeys it is.

Mondays starting Feb 23, 7702 Santa Monica Blvd (near Spaulding), 323-654-1234

Tuesday
Kogi BBQ Untrucked
KOREAN KITCHEN

Kogi BBQ Untrucked

The Korean barbecue trucks careening through our streets, with a wagging tail of foodie hipsters behind, will still careen. But Tuesday's the grand opening of a stationary Kogi kitchen in the Alibi Room, with an expanded menu and a roof over your head.

Grand opening Feb 24, 12236 Washington Blvd (E. of Centinela), 310-390-9300
