Things to do for October 18, 2013

The Weekender

Krueger, Ali and, Well, Pole Dancing

The weekend proclaims itself the new Dodgers mascot.

Friday
How to Spend $10 at the Black Cat
CUT TO BLACK

How to Spend $10 at the Black Cat

Around 4:30pm, it happens. You crash. You need a latte. Or... fried chicken and a beer. Over at the Black Cat’s new sort-of happy hour, your beer or wine comes with a daily special—burger on Mondays, fried chicken on Wednesdays—for 10 bucks. It’s a step up from peanuts.

Daily, 4-6pm, The Black Cat, 3909 W Sunset Blvd, Silver Lake, 323-661-6369

Red Pepper Tequila by the Beach
THERE’S SOMETHING ABOUT LARRY

Red Pepper Tequila by the Beach

You’ve got fond memories of drinking beer by the beach at Larry’s this summer. And you’re about to have fond memories of drinking chili-salt-rimmed, red-pepper-infused tequila by the beach at Larry’s this fall—finally they’ve gotten a full liquor license. And a red pepper license.

Available now at Larry’s, 24 Windward Ave, Venice, 310-399-2700

Saturday
The Greatest (Pics) of All Time
ALI ALI OXEN FREE

The Greatest (Pics) of All Time

Saturday night, you’ll have a beer and find inspiration under giant photos of Muhammad Ali in his prime at the opening party for the new exhibit inside Fred Segal. Sunday morning, you’ll rise triumphantly from bed, ready to show that farmers’ market who’s boss.

Sunday
Amazing Drinks. At Cheetahs.
POLE POSITIONING

Amazing Drinks. At Cheetahs.

Sure, you’ll be surrounded by scantily clad pole dancers at Cheetahs on Sunday night. But esteemed bartender Matt Biancaniello will be there, too, for some amazing reason, so you’ll be laser-focused on your tequila cocktail with sea urchin puree. It’s the strip club equivalent of reading Playboy for the articles.

Monday
Nightmare on Elm Street, Poolside
RIGHT SAID FREDDY

Nightmare on Elm Street, Poolside

The scene at Tropicana Bar can be kind of scary sometimes. Like when Nightmare on Elm Street is playing on the wall beside the pool, and you’re holding a crimson-colored drink called Nancy’s Bathwater. It’s got cherries and tequila in it, just like your bathwater.

Oct 21, doors 7pm, movie 8:30pm, Tropicana Bar, 7000 Hollywood Blvd, 323-466-7000
