Things to do for August 29, 2013

The Weekender

Whiskey, Tacos and the Open Road

The weekend has been granted a late checkout.

Thursday
Hey, It’s Bigfoot West’s Birthday
GO BIGFOOT OR GO HOME

Hey, It’s Bigfoot West’s Birthday

The most beautiful phrase in the Spanish language: “free tacos.” You’ll have plenty of them if you show up to Bigfoot West’s fourth birthday party tonight. And the bar has come up with a beautiful English phrase of its own for the occasion: “five-dollar Old Fashioneds.”

Aug 29, 9pm (tacos while they last), Bigfoot West, 10939 Venice Blvd, 310-287-2200

Friday
Four Days of Movies About Music
ROCKS OFFICE

Four Days of Movies About Music

Robbing banks with a Sun Records legend. Touring the Middle East with the Black Lips. You’re... doing none of those things. But at this four-day festival of documentaries about rock stars, you can watch those people do those things while you eat some popcorn. Popcorn is so rock-and-roll.

A Pizza Spot Covered in Pennies
CENTS AND SENSIBILITY

A Pizza Spot Covered in Pennies

Three-day weekend. Ninety-odd miles. Your mission: get to Santa Barbara. Drink a bunch of pinot. Eat some wood-fired margherita pizza from a 1,000-degree oven at Lucky Penny, a new restaurant that’s, yeah, completely covered in pennies. Quarters would’ve been gauche.

Now open, Lucky Penny, 137 Anacapa St, Santa Barbara, 805-284-0358

Saturday
Something New for Your Neck
TIE SCORE

Something New for Your Neck

Meet Bull+Moose. They live in your closet. Which is okay, because they’re ties. The company is based here in LA, and they’re getting you mostly classic, good-looking bow ties with names like Houndstooth, Jimmy Olsen and Santa Monica. It’s okay if you wear it in Silver Lake.

Sunday
The Larder Handles Your Labor Day
THE LARDER THEY COME

The Larder Handles Your Labor Day

BBQ brisket. Manchego burgers. Fruit cobbler. You could make all those things for the big barbecue this weekend, except for one thing: you’re never going to do that. Because the Larder will make it all for you—just order up to 48 hours in advance. So pretty much right now.
