The weekend doesn’t sweat. It glistens.

Thursday
A Lot of Mac and Cheese at the Hudson
RETURN OF THE MAC

A Lot of Mac and Cheese at the Hudson

Bars: good. Bars with classic mac and cheese: better. Bars with three additional kinds of mac and cheese every Thursday—maybe blackened chicken, Italian sausage and artichoke with blistered grape tomatoes—well, that’s just the Hudson.

Thursdays, $11 each, The Hudson, 1114 N Crescent Heights Blvd, West Hollywood, 323-654-6686

Oh, You Know. Drinking at the Zoo.
WHAT A ZOO

Oh, You Know. Drinking at the Zoo.

Last time you went to the zoo, you saw some zebras and an elephant or something—neat. Also, you were 12. Well... starting tonight, the LA Zoo has a whole after-dark thing happening. Live music. Food trucks. Stand-up. And yes, a full bar. Circle of life.

Jul 11, 18 and 25, 7-10pm, LA Zoo, 5333 Zoo Dr, Griffith Park, 323-644-6042, tickets here

The Doughroom Is Here with Pizza
DOUGH, A DEER...

The Doughroom Is Here with Pizza

You wouldn’t be doing your job in life if a big, airy Westside pizza joint opened and you didn’t check it out immediately. So... hello, Doughroom, all casement windows and perfectly charred pizzas and peach shortcake. You didn’t get to where you are by ignoring peach shortcake.

Saturday
Christmas in July. Sure, Why Not.
ELF IMPROVEMENT

Christmas in July. Sure, Why Not.

Seems like it was only seven months ago that you were seeing Christmas trees. Because it was. Still, this weekend, you’ll be next to one, watching Elf. It’s a “Christmas in July”–themed outdoor screening, and yes, there will be food trucks. As long as you don’t hear Bing Crosby at Rite Aid yet...

Rock Star Moments at Sunset Marquis
AUTO FLASH

Rock Star Moments at Sunset Marquis

Mick Jagger and Björk—both’ve had some interesting hair days, and both have been photographed by Dave Stewart. Head to Sunset Marquis this weekend and you’ll see plenty of rock stars in his new exhibit, Jumpin’ Jack Flash & The Suicide Blonde. Then, you’ll see some more rock stars at the bar.
