Things to do for January 30, 2014

The Weekender

Rabbit Donuts, Cider and Dancing Flappers

Blood sugar sex weekend.

Thursday
UD - Beer, Wine and Banh Mi in Downtown
WILLING AND TABLE

Beer, Wine and Banh Mi in Downtown

Say you’re part of a cop show shooting on Figueroa. Say your people need an easy all-day place to break for Handsome Coffee in the morning, then banh mi at lunch, then steak and a beer later. Local Table is that place. They also have cold-pressed juice. For authenticity.

Now open, Local Table, 800 S Figueroa St, 213-488-2654

UD - Bubbly and Flappers at Next Door Lounge
FLAP BATTLE

Bubbly and Flappers at Next Door Lounge

Consider flappers. They’re sort of like the ’20s version of NFL cheerleaders, except Thursdays at Next Door Lounge they come with champagne instead of pom-poms. PSA: If you decide to say, “These dames ain’t a dime a dozen” to the doorman, your first champagne inside is 10 cents. Your call.

Friday
UD - Hollywood’s New Neighborhood Spot
THE NEW BLACK

Hollywood’s New Neighborhood Spot

Black is everything you want in a discreet rocker-friendly neighborhood bar, with leather booths, a bar built by pro skaters, a good jukebox, an owner who helped get Viper Room going and walls painted by Neck Face. Black is also a color.

Opens Jan 31, 8pm, Black, 6202 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood, 323-871-4880

UD - Rabbit Donuts and Cider on Sunset
CIDER HOUSE RULES

Rabbit Donuts and Cider on Sunset

Oh, Vintage Enoteca: always pairing your stuff to your other stuff. Starting tomorrow, it’ll be three courses of sausages paired with three hard ciders. So you’ll try spicy sausage arepas with bourbon barrel-aged Michigan cider—and rabbit-sausage donuts with French cider. Rabbit donuts with Michigan cider would be a travesty.

Jan 31-Feb 1, $30, Vintage Enoteca, 7554 W Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, 323-512-5278

Sunday
UD - Half-Off Dinner at Chi Lin
ISN’T CHI LOVELY

Half-Off Dinner at Chi Lin

Chips. Dip. Lobster spring rolls and Peking duck at Chi Lin. Looks like all your Super Bowl Sunday essentials are lined up. Especially since the restaurant’s entire dinner menu is half off for Chinese New Year. Now what’s Mandarin for “touchdown”...

Feb 2-6, Chi Lin, 9201 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, reservations recommended at 310-278-2068
