Things to do for April 18, 2013
Lobster. Aliens. Tacos. Weekend.
This round’s on the weekend.
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.
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.
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
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.
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.
