Things to do for July 18, 2013
Groundlings, Ghostbusters and a Bottomless Happy Hour
The weekend is on a weekday cleanse.
Three Words: Bottomless Happy Hour
Seems improbable. But rarely do you walk into a bar, grab a stool... and find yourself in the middle of a bottomless happy hour. Over at the Charleston, $19 now gets you a bite (maybe the short rib tacos) and all the beer or wine you’d like. Welcome to the exception.
Here, Have Some Superba S’mores
Hard to believe, but Superba is a year old already. To celebrate, they could either A) rent a bounce house or B) give out gratis s’mores all weekend—here, it’s s’mores in a jar, and chocolate pudding is involved. You’ll probably be happy to hear they went with B. Probably.
The Groundlings Go to School
We could tell you what’s in the new Groundlings show, but that would kind of spoil the fun of seeing whoever the next Will Ferrell is (yep, he’s an alum) have that moment on stage when you lean over and whisper to your date: “That guy’s the next Will Ferrell.”
Ghostbusters on a Hollywood Patio
There’s a certain kind of atmosphere you can only find on a Sunday night in Hollywood. The kind that involves you and a date in a discreet rear courtyard. There’s bourbon. There’s chicken and waffles. There’s... Ghostbusters screening on the wall. Because that’s a thing nobody would ever object to.
Late Nights at Jones, Improved
Jones on Santa Monica—there’s not much to say about it. It’s just always kind of great, whenever, for pizza and beer and darkness. There was no real need for them to start a late-night party with $4 beers and $6 pizzas. Except for all the reasons.
