Things to do for August 01, 2013

The Weekender

Ribs, Surfboards and Summer Camp. (Sort Of.)

Would you like some weekend with that?

Thursday
Madison: Now Sells Men’s Clothes
MADISON MEN

Madison: Now Sells Men’s Clothes

You’ve maybe never been to a Madison. They sell... sundresses? Okay, we’re not sure, but lots of women enjoy it. And now there’s a men’s shop, with so much Americana for your body, like Gitman, Gant Rugger, Raleigh Denim and Wolverine. The shoe, not the X-Man.

Saturday
Surfboards, Sun and a Pig Roast
ONE FINE DEUS

Surfboards, Sun and a Pig Roast

If you’re in the mood to grab a new surfboard this weekend... hopefully you’re also in the mood for a pig roast, live music and oceans of gratis beer. Yup, it’s time for a swap meet. But a Deus ex Machina–style swap meet.

Sunday
Lucques’s Famous Ribfest. At Tavern.
THE RIB REPORT

Lucques’s Famous Ribfest. At Tavern.

Cowboy hats. Wranglers. Tables covered with mountains of sweet smoked pork, ribs, wings, slaw, beans, canned beers... If you’re picturing a night in Brentwood, you’re not insane. Lucques’s famous Ribfest is back... next weekend. But this weekend, they’re doing it at Tavern, too, for the first time. Brentwood barbecue. Okay then.

Aug 4, 5-9pm, $55, Tavern, 11648 San Vicente Blvd, Brentwood, 310-806-6464

Like Summer Camp, Only... Not Like That
CAMP CLASSIC

Like Summer Camp, Only... Not Like That

Okay, so you go to the multitiered Spanish craziness that is El Cid. Then you take in a multimedia performance on stage, hosted by a “camp counselor,” that’s all about comic books you might’ve read when you were 9. Also, there’s a lot of beer happening. Just your usual Sunday, really.

Wednesday
Just Some Wild Russian Karaoke
SINGING RED

Just Some Wild Russian Karaoke

If you’re doing karaoke right, it usually involves a mic, a little blue screen and some falsetto. If it also involves Russian-grandma decor, infused vodka shots and a potential Jamie Foxx sighting, that just means you’re at Mari Vanna’s new weekly karaoke blowout. We think.

Wednesdays, 10pm, Mari Vanna, 8475 Melrose Pl, West Hollywood, 323-655-1977
