Things to do for June 06, 2013

The Weekender

Tacos, Top-Siders and the Malibu Shore

Come for the week, stay for the weekend.

Thursday
24 Lanes of Bowling and Pizza
STRIKE ZONE

24 Lanes of Bowling and Pizza

It wouldn’t take much to get you away from your usual haunts and to a Little Tokyo place called XLanes. Maybe just 24 bowling lanes, 24 beers, 100 arcade games and 16 inches of Dragon’s Breath pizza (topped with ghost chilies). Call that a ballpark estimate.

Now open, XLanes, 333 Alameda St, Little Tokyo, 213-229-8910

Friday
For Lunch: Tacos, Then Some Tacos
TINGA WOLF

For Lunch: Tacos, Then Some Tacos

You’ve waited at least 8,000 years for the new Tinga outpost in Santa Monica to start serving lunch. Okay, maybe it’s only been a few weeks. Still. You’re practically a saint. And finally your patience has been rewarded. They have tacos. Go to them.

Now open at 11:30am daily, Tinga, 522 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, 310-451-9341

A Very Downtown Jubilee
WHEN YOU’RE DOWNTOWN

A Very Downtown Jubilee

If you’ve been looking forward to another Silver Lake session of outdoor rock at the Jubilee Music Fest: sorry. It’s Downtown now. In a warehouse. The Drums will be there to console you. And Fool’s Gold. And other great bands you’ll either know or want to pretend to know.

Saturday
Alpha’s Back. Go Buy Things.
ALPHA BET

Alpha’s Back. Go Buy Things.

There was that one day when the Alpha store closed and you were sort of distraught, wondering where you’d buy your Top-Siders, shirts and random gadgets. Silly you. The pop-ups started soon after, and the latest is Downtown. You can buy... Top-Siders, shirts and random gadgets.

Through Aug 31, Alpha at Seven Points, 845 S Los Angeles St, Downtown

Sunday
Alfresco Surf Cinema in Malibu
DOING THE WAVE

Alfresco Surf Cinema in Malibu

You’re in Malibu on a Sunday night. You’re seeing stars and sky and ocean and a bunch of surfers doing surfer-y stuff. But you’re not actually looking at the shore. You’re sitting in the grass at Malibu Country Mart, watching a screen that’s playing The Endless Summer Revisited. Huh.
