Things to do for July 25, 2013

The Weekender

Point Break, Brunch and Five Miles of Spraying Water

Finally, the royal weekend has arrived.

Thursday
Friday
Point Break Live: It’s Back
GREAT POINT

Point Break Live: It’s Back

If you want the ultimate theater, you’ve got to be willing to pay the ultimate price—or like 25 bucks. That gets you a night of profound drama about bank-robbing surfers, with a bar near your seat. Oh, and an audience member will tackle Keanu’s performance. That subtle, nuanced performance.

Saturday
Like a 5K in a Water Park
WATER WORLD

Like a 5K in a Water Park

Been a real hot one this summer. You’d only do something crazy like a 5K right now if it involved water slides, mist tunnels, sprinklers and maybe getting nailed with a blast from a fire hose. Desperate times...

Jul 27, $55 ($65 on race day), Drenched, Exposition Park, 3980 Bill Robertson Ln

Morning Beer and Board Games
BOARD TO DEATH

Morning Beer and Board Games

The fierce physical training. The mental-dexterity exercises. The beer drinking. It’s all come down to this three-day board game tourney, where eight two-player teams will face off in Jenga, Connect Four and more. Winners get a pair of growlers. So yeah, the stakes are incredibly high.

Sunday
Southern Brunch at Willie Jane
JANE ADDICTION

Southern Brunch at Willie Jane

We’ll just spitball some words real quick here. Bottomless mimosas. Southern gentility. Abbot Kinney patio. Shrimp and grits. Biscuits with blood-orange-and-honey butter. You sitting there. Enjoying those things. The point here is that Willie Jane has brunch now.

Sundays, 11am-2:30pm, Willie Jane, 1031 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 310-392-2425

The Downtown Flea Is Here
FLEA THE SCENE

The Downtown Flea Is Here

You know what they say, a neighborhood isn’t truly happening until it gets a monthly four-parking-lot flea market with dozens of vendors like the late, great Alpha men’s shop. So stop the presses. Breaking news: Downtown is officially happening, apparently.

Jul 28 (and every fourth Sunday of the month after), Downtown Flea, 246 S Spring St, Downtown
