Things to do for May 16, 2013

The Weekender

Beacher’s Madhouse, Meat Loaf and Beer

Weekend into darkness.

Thursday
Big Changes at the Parish
PARISH THE THOUGHT

Big Changes at the Parish

The Parish is perfect. The Parish should never change. The Parish... is changing. Downstairs is closed. Soon it’ll be a wine bar. Hmm. Well. You do like wine bars. And upstairs, the cocktails are now done by the owners of NYC’s Death + Company. They sound pretty great. Okay, fine, change is good.

Friday
A Saucy Show at Beacher’s Madhouse
WORLD PIECES

A Saucy Show at Beacher’s Madhouse

Twelve girls. One stage. Minimal clothing. Profound questions about what it all means—mostly the minimal clothing part. What you’re seeing here is Pieces (of Ass), the new 12-part show now in residency at Beacher’s Madhouse. You’re watching it for the articles.

Bank of Venice Is Not a Bank
BIG BANK THEORY

Bank of Venice Is Not a Bank

Weekend’s coming. You should hit the bank, make a withdrawal. And you’d like that in meat loaf, please. Yes, Bank of Venice has opened, and long ago it was a bank bank—but now it’s a bar with pub food and house-brewed beer. Check that, bank-brewed beer.

Sunday
The Goonies. At Artisan House. Go.
WORK OF ARTISAN

The Goonies. At Artisan House. Go.

Short rib burgers. Tuscan flatbreads. Liquid-nitrogen margaritas. A bunch of wine to take home. Artisan House really has everything. Except The Goonies playing on a big screen. They never had that. Now they do, Sunday night. Well, looks like that’s everything...

May 19, 8pm, no cost, Artisan House, 600 S Main St, Downtown, reservations recommended at 213-622-6333

Tuesday
Oysters and Beer at Messhall
A FINE MESS

Oysters and Beer at Messhall

This one’s really simple. You’ll go out. Have yourself a weekend. Then you’ll have yourself a Monday. By Tuesday, we’re guessing you’ll be ready to hit Messhall for $1 oysters and $5 beers. Or as you call it, dinner.

Tuesdays, 4-10pm, Messhall, 4500 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Feliz, 323-660-6377
