Things to do for January 09, 2014

The Weekender

Nick Kroll, Winter Beach Clothes and Stroganoff

The weekend is practicing its bit with Poehler and Fey.

Thursday
Summer Clothes for Winter, 60% Off
THAT’S WITT SHE SAID

Summer Clothes for Winter, 60% Off

You need some winter gear—which, roughly translated, means the same stuff you wear in summer. Stuff that’s up to 60% off right now at Wittmore, like Gant Rugger shorts and Relwen polos. And yeah, they have cardigans and knit hats, too. But come on.

Friday
Meet the New Palihouse. It’s Lodge-y.
’HOUSE PARTY

Meet the New Palihouse. It’s Lodge-y.

While you were distracted by the holidays, the Palihouse in West Hollywood covertly ditched the posh-London-flat vibe—your next fireside drink in the lobby will feel 62% more hunting-lodge-like. Plus a Gordon Ramsay vet’s new menu has duck sausage and mash. You’re generally pro-mash.

Nick Kroll Live at LACMA
AS THE KROLL FLIES

Nick Kroll Live at LACMA

You usually don’t spend your Friday nights watching TV. But TV watching doesn’t usually happen on LACMA’s big screen. Friday, they’re showing Comedy Central’s Kroll Show alongside Nick Kroll himself, who’s hanging out afterward to chat. Bonus: your DVR won’t cut off the end.

Saturday
And One Comedian Shall Be Anointed...
CLEAR AND PRESENT DANGERFIELD

And One Comedian Shall Be Anointed...

Huge award ceremony happening this weekend. No, not the Globes. Saturday night, you’ll see seven fledgling comedians competing for judges like Fred Willard—winner takes home an award named after Rodney Dangerfield himself. Finally, the man gets a little respect.

Sunday
Finally, Some Rabbit Stroganoff at Jar
TIP JAR

Finally, Some Rabbit Stroganoff at Jar

It’s not every day you find Artisan chef Chris Kobayashi coming down from Paso Robles to cook you a four-course dinner with rabbit stroganoff, lamb tartare and abalone dumplings. Nope. It’s just this Sunday, at Jar. No need to thank the Hollywood Foreign Press...

Jan 12, $60, Jar, 8225 Beverly Blvd, 323-655-6566, reservations recommended
