Things to do for October 03, 2013

The Weekender

Ron Swanson, Football, Scotch and a Pajama Party

The weekend thinks it just made up with Kanye.

Thursday
Acabar’s New Four-Seat Raw Bar
RAW FOOTAGE

Acabar’s New Four-Seat Raw Bar

Acabar has already given you a menu spanning several continents, monumental cocktails and porn bread. Now the Moroccan fortress has found room for a four-seat raw bar, so you and a date or three can negotiate the night’s lobster-oyster-crab-prawn ratio—or just do the seven-course omakase.

Friday
A Bar Full of People in Pajamas
GOOD NIGHT

A Bar Full of People in Pajamas

If you find yourself downing a Singapore Sling in your pajamas at Copa d’Oro on Friday night, good call—that wardrobe choice will earn you a drink on the house. (Bring another pair for a kid in need. They’ll be taking donations.) Just make sure you get the date right.

Oct 4, 5:30pm-2am, Copa d’Oro, 217 Broadway, Santa Monica, 310-576-3030

Saturday
Partying in Aventine’s Alley
ALLEY GIRLS

Partying in Aventine’s Alley

Saturday night drinking in a Cahuenga alley: yes, you’ve finally made it in Hollywood. This alley happens to be of the charming brick-lined variety, and it’ll be filled with focaccia pizza, large photos of models and a runway. Hollywood alleys are different than other alleys.

Oct 5, 5-10pm, no cost, behind Aventine, 1607 N Cahuenga Blvd, Hollywood, 323-500-0969, RSVP here before noon on Oct 5

Nick Offerman at the New Beverly
BOOKS AND RECREATION

Nick Offerman at the New Beverly

In the off-hours between playing Ron Swanson and grooming his mustache, Nick Offerman wrote Paddle Your Own Canoe, a book on manliness—and he’s showing up at the New Beverly to talk shop. Your ticket gets you a copy of the book, which he’ll sign with his mustache.

Monday
Football and Scotch at Left Shoe
YOUR LEFT FOOT

Football and Scotch at Left Shoe

Monday Night Football is why bars were invented. And elegant shoe shops. Catch the game at the Left Shoe Company, and they’ll bring out crustacean tacos and tastings of three small-batch scotches. You might even wind up getting measured for a J.Hilburn shirt and custom loafers. Halftime productivity, etc.
