Things to do for September 19, 2013

The Weekender

Fried Chicken, Russian Brunch and a Bike

Who is the weekend wearing?

Thursday
Aether, Meet Shelter Half
INTO THE AETHER

Aether, Meet Shelter Half

Aether is launching a shop inside Shelter Half tonight, and you know what that means: free beer and wine, a vintage Ducati hanging out next to maps and axes, and lots of great nylon jackets. They’d look great on Mammoth, or just protect you from the frozen-food elements at Whole Foods.

Saturday
Hey, Here’s a Cereal Restaurant
SUPER BOWL

Hey, Here’s a Cereal Restaurant

It’s early. You’re in a random Venice alley. And you demand cereal immediately. Welcome to Another Kind of Sunshine, a breakfast stand slinging Frosted Flakes and Rice Krispies—but the Abbot Kinney version, involving words like “housemade” and “organic.” That’ll have to do.

Ride a Bike. Buy Some Pickles.
THE RIVER MILD

Ride a Bike. Buy Some Pickles.

When you bike along the ocean shore, you see water, sand and drum circles. It’s all a bit cliché. Join the LA River group ride happening on Saturday, and you’ll be stopping to check out a surfboard maker and a pickle factory. Oh, sure, that old story.

Sunday
Mari Vanna Gets to Brunching
RUSSIA HOUR

Mari Vanna Gets to Brunching

For too long, the Mari Vanna party was MIA during brunch. That all changes Sunday, with three czarist courses (like blinis and salmon, and veal dumplings) and bottomless champagne or mimosas for $29. And sure, you’ll probably add on some infused vodkas for the table. It’s only right.

Monday
Monday Football at Short Order
NEXT ORDER OF BUSINESS

Monday Football at Short Order

$6 fried chicken. $4 cocktails. A keg of rare Stone ale ready to go. A seat near a screen with the game on. Sounds like you’re all ready for some Monday Night Football—except you only have the seat and screen. Time to go to Short Order then. They’ll handle the other things.

Mondays starting Sep 23, 3-10pm, Short Order, 6333 W 3rd St, 323-761-7970
