Things to do for October 24, 2013

The Weekender

Vintage Surfboards, Oxtail Tacos and Halloween in a Zoo

You know what they say about people with big weekends...

Thursday
Friday
There’s a Party at the Zoo
ZOO CAN IT BE NOW

There’s a Party at the Zoo

The LA Zoo. So much better if you get rid of all the kids on school trips and add cocktails. So that’s the story this Friday. It’s an after-hours thing with live music, live food trucks, live fire-eaters and wild animals in cages. Hopefully.

Saturday
South End Says Yes to Brunch
END AROUND

South End Says Yes to Brunch

South End has some thoughts regarding brunch. One is that it should include things like bacon-and-fried-egg croissant sandwiches. And two is that they should be serving it. So that’s what they’re going to do starting this Saturday. You like where their head is.

Sat-Sun starting Oct 26, 10:30am-2pm, South End, 2805 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 424-228-4736

National Geographic’s Greatest Hits
NATIONAL TREASURES

National Geographic’s Greatest Hits

National Geographic just turned 125. And if you stop by the Annenberg Space for Photography starting this weekend, you’ll see over 500 of the magazine’s finest photos displayed on changing LED screens and covering the gallery like some sort of digital wallpaper. Which is cool... just not as cool as birthday cake.

Sunday
A Vintage-Surfboard Swap Meet
ABOVE BOARD

A Vintage-Surfboard Swap Meet

The best place to buy a new surfboard this weekend: Sharper Supply Co’s collector’s swap meet, where there’ll be vintage Dewey Weber sticks, live blues and cold beer. The best place to use a new surfboard this weekend: the ocean.

Oct 27, 10am-3pm, Shaper Supply Co, 3523 S Centinela Ave, Mar Vista, 310-862-4407

Tuesday
Bar Marmont Does Day of the Dead
BETTER OFF FED

Bar Marmont Does Day of the Dead

Typically, you celebrate Día de los Muertos by hanging around a cemetery or something. But this year, Bar Marmont is rolling out a special menu for Mexico’s Day of the Dead. And it includes stuff like oxtail tacos, ceviche and margaritas. So do that instead.

Oct 29-Nov 2, 6pm-1am, Bar Marmont, 8171 W Sunset Blvd, 323-650-0575
