The Weekender

Fish Tacos, Beer and Sweaters That Are Not Beautiful

The true meaning of weekend.

Ricky’s Got Fish Tacos Again
TACO THE TOWN

Ricky’s Got Fish Tacos Again

You’ve had a dark 10 months. Oh, everything’s fine, just... your world kind of ended when Ricky’s Fish Tacos left Silver Lake. Good news: Ricky got a truck. And it’ll be parked right back at his old address. Every time you eat a taco, an angel gets its wings.

A Merry Sale at Rag & Bone
THE LOVELY BONE

A Merry Sale at Rag & Bone

It’s cold. It’s hot. It’s raining. Turns out you might need some insulated layers to get through this winter thing. Huh. Anyway, Rag & Bone’s got near-endless wool-suede pullovers and down-filled nylon jackets at 30% to 70% off. Good timing.

Through Jan 1, Rag & Bone, 8533 Melrose Ave, 424-245-4816, and 11715 San Vicente Blvd, 310-820-0754

Saturday
Running a 5K in an Ugly Sweater
THE UGLY TRUTH

Running a 5K in an Ugly Sweater

You could stand around at a party in your ugly sweater—or you could run a 5K in it. The Ugly Sweater Run is happening at a Downtown park, and there’s beer and hot chocolate at the finish line. Where you’ll stand around in your sweater.

Monday
Bru’s Wiffle Gets a Westwood Sister
BRU MASTER

Bru’s Wiffle Gets a Westwood Sister

Bru’s Wiffle handled your mornings with churro waffles, even if your “mornings” started a bit post-noon. The owner’s new Westwood spot is for when you actually want post-noon lunch: wood-grilled Angus burgers and jidori chicken banh mi. Or as some call them, not-waffles.

Tuesday
Cecconi’s Unveils... This Monstrosity
BIG DEAL

Cecconi’s Unveils... This Monstrosity

Some people lie low with relatives on December 24. Others carbo-load. Assuming you’re in the latter camp (the next day’s unwrapping gets intense), call up Cecconi’s now and preorder the one-night-only Timpano—it’s basically a giant cheesy cake filled with rigatoni, eggs, Bolognese, salami and meatballs. So not really cake.

Available Dec 24 with 48-hour notice, $90, Cecconi’s, 8764 Melrose Ave, 310-432-2000
