Things to do for January 03, 2014

The Weekender

Elvis, Sarah Silverman and Tom Bergin’s

The wolf of weekend.

Friday
Nutella Pizza Next to Golden Gopher
RIGHT SAID CEDD

Nutella Pizza Next to Golden Gopher

Golden Gopher: historically great for getting drinks, bad for getting pizza. Now owner Cedd Moses has opened you a neighboring spot with big, thin-crust slices topped with housemade mozzarella, ricotta, pesto and Nutella from a Tomato Pie vet. His resolutions were better than most people’s resolutions.

Now soft-open, Pellicola Pizzeria, 421 W 8th St, Downtown, 213-614-8000

Your Friday Night with Sarah Silverman
LUBITSCH IS MAGIC

Your Friday Night with Sarah Silverman

Finally. Holidays are over. You could really use some filthy comedy to purge all those tidings of comfort, etc., from your system. Hey, there’s a gratis show at Bar Lubitsch tonight, and Sarah Silverman is part of the lineup. You can count on her for at least one [REDACTED] reference.

Jan 3, 8pm (early arrival recommended), Peachy Keen at Bar Lubitsch, 7702 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, 323-654-1234

Saturday
Tom Bergin’s Is Back (Again)
LUCK OF THE IRISH

Tom Bergin’s Is Back (Again)

Flashback to 2012: Tom Bergin’s reopened. (Great.) Flashback again to last year: it closed. Again. (Not great.) Well, this Saturday, it reopens. Again. Looks just like last time you went, with all the clovers, cocktails and Guinness inside—except this time, the front door opens again.

Reopens Jan 4, 11am, Tom Bergin’s, 840 S Fairfax Ave, 323-936-7151

A Back to the Future Triple Feature
LORD OF THE MCFLYS

A Back to the Future Triple Feature

2014: our last chance to catch up to Back to the Future Part II’s vision of 2015, with all those hoverboards and stuff. The Egyptian screens the whole trilogy Saturday, and there are probably no hoverboards in your future before then, so... regular parking lot out back for you.

Sunday
Elvis Lives (No He Doesn’t) at the Echo
RETURN OF THE KING

Elvis Lives (No He Doesn’t) at the Echo

If Elvis were alive today, you’d probably see him at the Echo. Well, probably not, but Sunday’s your chance to see how that would go down, sort of—a bunch of local rockers are doing Elvis covers for his birthday. Expect at least one pair of ironic blue suede shoes.
