Things to do for April 18, 2013

The Weekender

Lobster. Aliens. Tacos. Weekend.

This round’s on the weekend.

Thursday
Umami, Meet Art. Art, Umami.
THERE WILL BE BURGERS

Umami, Meet Art. Art, Umami.

Tonight, you could see some acclaimed street art and say profound things about it. But you’re kind of in the mood to just get some Umami. Hey, maybe hit LAB ART’s new pop-up gallery opening party inside Fred Segal. Burgers are happening. And vodka, too. In case you were still on the fence.

Friday
Plan 9 from Outer Space... Burlesque
SOUNDS LIKE A PLAN

Plan 9 from Outer Space... Burlesque

Ed Wood’s Plan 9 from Outer Space: usually considered the worst movie of all time. Well, that or Two for the Money. Anyway, sounds to you like solid source material for a burlesque show—you can expect to see UFOs, aliens and something about an octopus. Also, tassels.

Sunday
15 Miles of Empty LA Streets
OPEN ROAD

15 Miles of Empty LA Streets

Sunday, you’ll see something you’d thought unimaginable: zero traffic. All the way from Downtown to Venice. It’s not the apocalypse, it’s CicLAvia—an event that frees up the streets so you can walk around or ride your bike. Then complain about bike traffic.

Just... Lots of Tacos at Oldfield’s
DAYS OF OLD

Just... Lots of Tacos at Oldfield’s

Head to Oldfield’s at noon on Sunday. Because for once they’ll be open at noon on a Sunday. They happen to be right on the whole CicLAvia route, so they’re opening up early for the day—and let’s just say this involves $1 tacos. Naturally.

Monday
Lobster Mondays at Jar: The Return
CLAW & ORDER

Lobster Mondays at Jar: The Return

Say you’re craving a three-course lobster dinner. (Wild thought, but stay with us.) At least two courses should have lobster—good thing Jar’s Monday-lobster thing is back. This week, it’s lobster salad, then lobster, then icebox cake... hold the lobster.

Mondays through August, $55, Jar, 8225 Beverly Blvd, 323-655-6566, see the menu
