Things to do for September 26, 2013

The Weekender

Hollywood Oysters, Rare Wine and Fred Segal Madness

For once, the weekend was better than the book.

Thursday
The Fred Segal Sale Is Back
FLOCK OF SEGAL

The Fred Segal Sale Is Back

If you’re craving some tequila tonight, you could hit some bar... or Fred Segal, where they’re giving the stuff away. Tonight, their massive fall sale begins, including Band of Outsiders and Rag & Bone at half off. It’s harder to get a new shirt at a bar without things ending poorly.

Starts Sep 26, 5-9pm, Fred Segal, 420 and 500 Broadway, Santa Monica, 310-395-5699

Friday
Umami Burger Piles On the Bacon
BACON BAD

Umami Burger Piles On the Bacon

The 9,452nd Umami, now in the Arts District, is the only place you can get something called the Arts District Manly Burger. Apparently, the recipe for manliness includes a bacon-beef patty topped with pork belly, beer-cheddar fondue and baconnaise, on a bacon-fat-griddled bun. The beer-cheddar fondue is the feminine side.

Saturday
Your New Go-To Wine Shop
LOU BET

Your New Go-To Wine Shop

There’s one wine-shop strategy that works every time: go to great wine shop where everything is good, pick whatever. Related: the man behind that great wine bar Lou just opened one next to SQIRL, filled with unusual bottles like a rare Mendocino valdiguié. Nothing worse than an un-rare valdiguié.

Sunday
Obscene Quantities of Thai Food
THAI GOES TO THE RUNNER

Obscene Quantities of Thai Food

It’s been too long since your last Thai bender. (Even if you had Thai last night.) Good thing the Paramount lot is becoming one big Thai market on Sunday, overstuffed with food from Jitlada, Night + Market, Sang Yoon and Pok Pok’s Andy Ricker. Basically, the Thai-food dream team.

Monday
Dollar Oysters at Delphine
SHELLING OUT

Dollar Oysters at Delphine

Monday night, you’ve got two options. 1) Go to Delphine for an all-you-can-eat feast of lobster, clam chorizo and lobster bisque for 42 bucks. 2) Go to Delphine for dollar oysters. 3) Don’t go to Delphine. Like we said, you’ve got two options.

Lobster feast Sep 30 (reservations required), dollar oysters Sep 30-Oct 31, Delphine, 6250 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 323-798-1355
