Rumer Willis Enters the Moulin Rouge
BAZ GOOD AS IT GETS

Rumer Willis Enters the Moulin Rouge

So Rockwell has been turned into the Moulin Rouge again—after you show up and get your martinis, the For the Record crew will get to singing songs from Baz Luhrmann movies. What’s new this time: there’s at least one spawn of Bruce Willis on stage. Hint: it’s Rumer.

Saturday
It’s a Hunter S. Thompson Art Show
GONZO BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

It’s a Hunter S. Thompson Art Show

You are somewhere around Hollywood when the paintings take hold. You’re at a Fear and Loathing–inspired art show, and you’re seeing crazy pieces made with shotguns by Hunter S. Thompson, images of mutant fists clutching peyote, that sort of thing. You might fear, but you won’t loathe.

Opening reception Aug 24, show through Sep 14, Fear & Loathing: Los Angeles, BOA/SOA Fine Art, 607 W Knoll Dr, West Hollywood, 310-948-5500

Sunday
Your Go-To Jam Spot, Upgraded
HOLLABACK SQIRL

Your Go-To Jam Spot, Upgraded

Mangalitsa lard biscuits. Boysenberry jams. The ones everyone can’t stop talking about. Everyone... stopped talking about them for a while. Because SQIRL closed. Now it’s back. And bigger. And better-looking. With counters and a communal table. Of course there was going to be a communal table.

Now open, SQIRL, 720 N Virgil Ave, Silver Lake, 213-394-6526
