BOURBON

$5 Mint Juleps at Comme Ça

To celebrate that Southern rite of spring known as the Kentucky Derby, there's no more obvious place than…a Francophile Melrose brasserie. Still, five-buck mint juleps are five-buck mint juleps.

May 1-3, Comme Ça, 8479 Melrose Ave (E. of La Cienega), West Hollywood, 323-782-1104

Biking, Boozing and Free Eats
SPOKE UP

Biking, Boozing and Free Eats

Starting Friday, if you roll up to Marina Del Rey's starlit bar Glow on especially noteworthy wheels (as in, only two), the valets will park your ride and ensure you get a gratis appetizer for your trouble. We're sensing a trend

Glow, 4100 Admiralty Way (at Via Marina), Marina Del Rey, 310-578-4152

Saturday
Band of Outsiders Made-to-Measure Suits
SUIT UP

Band of Outsiders Made-to-Measure Suits

Drop by floor four of Barneys this weekend for a private session with Scott Sternberg, the man behind Band of Outsiders, and he'll stitch up a made-to-measure suit to your specifications. It ain't cheap, but being an outsider never is.

May 2, 12-2pm, Barneys New York, 9570 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, 310-276-4400

Monday
Mac and Cheese Nights at Grub
CHEESY

Mac and Cheese Nights at Grub

Not so long ago, Top Chef legend Betty Fraser's rustic studio-adjacent brunch spot broke into uncharted territory: dinner. Now comes true progress: mac and cheese specials like the Spicy Hot Flash plate (roasted jalapenos, bacon and pepper jack) and the Blue Cheese Mac with Basil.

$10, Mondays, 5pm to close, Grub, 911 Seward St (at Willoughby), Hollywood, 323-461-3663

Tuesday
Cinco de Mayan
TEQUILA

Cinco de Mayan

On the holiest of tequila-worshiping holidays, the Lucha VaVoom crew gooses the historic Mayan Theater with exotic dancers, tamales, luchadores, who wrestle and sing cabaret, and a donkey photo booth. (You tell us what that means…or maybe don't.)

May 5, doors at 7pm, Mayan Theater, 1038 S. Hill St (S. of Olympic), buy tickets here
