Things to do for August 15, 2013

The Weekender

Ludo, Art Parties and Beer-Steamed Blue Crab

Thursday
Friday
Prosciutto and Ludo. That Rhymes.
WHAT A HAM

Prosciutto and Ludo. That Rhymes.

Fried chicken from Ludo’s truck: you’ve... had your share. But you’ve had considerably less top-tier prosciutto. Until Friday, when Prosciutto di Parma takes it over. This means prosciutto sandwiches and, most importantly, a prosciutto pit stop at Covell. Yes, Covell drummed up some wine pairings. Just in case you’re interested.

Saturday
A Little Bakery. A Big French Chef.
ETCHEA A SKETCH

A Little Bakery. A Big French Chef.

Take a look at Etchea, and it looks like a pretty typical French bakery. Sure, there’s a bread counter. Sure, they’ll bake you cake. What’s that? Laurent Quenioux helped out with the menu? So you can also try a fire-roasted eggplant sandwich with zucchini-mushroom-basil soup? Oh.

Now open, Etchea, 2280 S Figueroa St, 213-744-1903

Sunday
A Big BBQ at Freddy Smalls
RIGHT SAID FREDDY

A Big BBQ at Freddy Smalls

Beer-steamed Maryland blue crab. Grilled corn on the cob with barbecue-spiced butter. Olive oil cake. All those things have a certain kind of August-Sunday-ness about them. Or they will, if you go to the “backyard” (aka parking lot) at Freddy Smalls. It’s probably the best way to fill your August-olive-oil-cake quota, really.

Aug 18, 2pm, $45, Freddy Smalls, 11520 W Pico Blvd, 310-479-3000

Monday
Like a Bar Crawl for Shopping
THREAD COUNT

Like a Bar Crawl for Shopping

Bar crawl: you go to a lot of bars and drink some drinks. ThreadCrawl: you go to a lot of shops like Confederacy and Kin, and you buy some pants at up to 70% off. (Note: you have to buy a ticket first for that to happen.) Bonus: no pants-related hangover.
