The Weekender

Bike-Churned Ice Cream, Risque Photos and Maybe a Beer or Four

The weekend is tracking highly with the 18 to 35 demographic.

Thursday
Bike-Churned Ice Cream Is Here
OFF THE CHAIN

Bike-Churned Ice Cream Is Here

The trouble with most major ice cream purveyors is that ice cream you just ordered wasn’t churned by some guy riding a bicycle. Stop in Downtown’s new ice cream joint, order a couple scoops of salted caramel and... yep, tastes just like it was churned by some guy riding a bicycle.

Sixth St Tavern Is Now Open
SIXTH SENSE

Sixth St Tavern Is Now Open

You probably have some fond memories of Urbano Pizza Bar—but hope you weren’t too attached, because now it’s more like a rustic pubby kind of place. You order at the counter, you commandeer a table, and you get some beers, pretzels and burgers. Hey. Change is good.

Friday
A Photo Show with a French Accent
YOU’LL ALWAYS HAVE PARIS

A Photo Show with a French Accent

For the last 16 years, there’s been an annual big-deal convention in Paris. It’s all about the art of the photo. It’s called... Paris Photo. But now it’s in LA, too. So you can nod and say “Oui” a lot, and take some pictures of great pictures with your phone.

Saturday
LA Bars. Boston Benefit.
BOSTON STRONG

LA Bars. Boston Benefit.

On Saturday, just by going about your business (having bottled cocktails at Sotto, getting a pizza at Osteria La Buca), you’re doing something good to help victims of last week’s Boston insanity—a bunch of places around town are donating proceeds directly to the One Fund. So go do that.

Tuesday
Short Order’s Beer Fest
SHORT STOP

Short Order’s Beer Fest

The burgers and shakes at Short Order are enough incentive for a drop-in. Really. But if on a Tuesday they decide to have a beer fest, and that means $10 four-beer flights—and a whole lamb roast, just because—well, you wouldn’t say you’re opposed, exactly.

Apr 30, 5-8pm, Short Order, 6333 W 3rd St, 323-761-7970
