Things to do for July 18, 2013

The Weekender

Groundlings, Ghostbusters and a Bottomless Happy Hour

The weekend is on a weekday cleanse.

Thursday
Three Words: Bottomless Happy Hour
CHARLESTON IN CHARGE

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.

Nightly, 5:30-8pm (all night Sun-Mon), $19, The Charleston, 2460 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, 310-828-2115

Here, Have Some Superba S’mores
LESS IS S’MORE

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.

Friday
The Groundlings Go to School
DEGREE OF DIFFICULTY

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.”

Sunday
Ghostbusters on a Hollywood Patio
ZUUL AS ICE

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.

Jul 21, 8pm, Wood & Vine, 6280 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 323-334-3360

Late Nights at Jones, Improved
JONES HOLLOWAY

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.
