The Weekender

Burlesque Olympics, Breakfast Tacos and Chuy

A funny thing happened on the way to the weekend.

Thursday
Friday
Time for the Burlesque Olympics
LET THE DAMES BEGIN

Time for the Burlesque Olympics

Finally, the official season is under way. Oh, sure, football will be fine, too, but we were talking about the Burlympics. Yes, as in burlesque Olympics, happening this weekend. You’ll see girls with names like Scarlett Letter and Bianca Boom Boom compete in categories like “Master of Tassels.” Go for the gold, ladies...

Hollywood Tacos from Chuy Bravo
TACO THE TOWN

Hollywood Tacos from Chuy Bravo

Ah, Hollywood. Sometimes you walk into some place you haven’t seen before and... why, yes, you are in a taco shop owned by Chelsea Handler’s sidekick, Chuy Bravo. Just don’t expect to see Chelsea there—not until Chuy gets his vodka license.

Saturday
The Meatball Shop. At Sunny Spot.
SUNNY WITH A CHANCE OF MEATBALLS

The Meatball Shop. At Sunny Spot.

Your last visit to Sunny Spot: a bit low on meatballs. Roy Choi would like to make sure that doesn’t happen on Saturday. The Meatball Shop will be visiting from NYC, so you can expect meatball heroes, meatball sliders and a surprise meatball from Choi himself. Guessing it’ll include meat.

Sep 7, 5pm-2am, Sunny Spot, 822 Washington Blvd, Marina del Rey, 310-448-8884

Water Like You’ve Never Seen It
WATER WORLD

Water Like You’ve Never Seen It

Water. It’s sort of important: occasionally you put some in your whiskey. Also, it’s super-crazy-looking when a guy named Moses Hacmon takes beautiful photos of its microscopic components in motion, then turns those photos into a Downtown gallery show at the Hub. You’ll probably need a drink.

Sunday
Bludso’s Kicks Off Football Season
THERE WILL BE BLUDSO’S

Bludso’s Kicks Off Football Season

Football. Tacos. Beer. And that’s just breakfast. Yeah, Bludso’s is going big for football season—there’s a full day of games on six flat-screens this Sunday, and you should get there early for a breakfast taco stuffed with eggs, salsa and your choice of brisket, pulled pork or potatoes. Breakfast tacos, people.
