Things to do for June 27, 2013

The Weekender

Oysters, Frozen Lemonade and Substantial Nudity

The weekend just got robbed by Hermione.

Thursday
Tonight: Oysters and Shandies in Venice
UP IN THE AIR

Tonight: Oysters and Shandies in Venice

If the beach could be indoors, it would be Salt Air on Abbot Kinney—everything is either bright white or sand-colored, and you’re sitting around with some oysters, a lobster roll and passion-fruit-infused shandies. And then you can walk over to the beach.

Now open, Salt Air, 1616 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 310-396-9333

Mauro Cafe Opens for Dinner
MAURO THE MERRIER

Mauro Cafe Opens for Dinner

Happens to all of us. You get a sudden intense craving for one of those frozen lemonade slushes from Mauro Cafe at Fred Segal. Sucks when it happens at 7pm, though, since they close up shop before dinner. Oh, hey. Now they serve dinner every Thursday. Today is a Thursday.

Friday
Before the Night Gets Going: Tacos
WHO YA GONNA CALLE

Before the Night Gets Going: Tacos

After a night at the Hollywood clubs, you’ve probably hit Calle Tacos to pull yourself together. Good call. Anyway, now if you go before the clubs, you’ll find an evening happy hour thing—you can get two tacos and a shot for less than eight bucks. Then they’ll see you later...

Fri-Sat, 7-11pm, Calle Tacos, 6508 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 323-465-9100

Saturday
Helmut Newton’s Giant New Show
WEAR A HELMUT

Helmut Newton’s Giant New Show

This weekend, you’ll find a bunch of new naked people in the courtyard behind CAA. That’s because there’s a big Helmut Newton exhibit happening, with 125 prints (some almost eight feet high), a couple movies and a lot of thoughtful discourse on the profound importance of well-lit nudity.

Sunday
Art Meets Cocktails at Invention
GLASS HALF FULL

Art Meets Cocktails at Invention

At many a bar in this town, you’ve had a drink and proclaimed it a work of art. Maybe not out loud, but still. Anyway, here comes an afternoon event that’s half art show and half every-good-bartender-alive-making-great-cocktails show. People who like cocktails are already calling it a masterpiece.
