Things to do for February 06, 2014

The Weekender

Whiskey, Franco and Bingo

The weekend sacrificed everything to be here.

Thursday
Hush, James Franco Will Teach You
THE NUTTY PROFESSOR

Hush, James Franco Will Teach You

Well, now James Franco has founded an acting school, where you’d presumably go if you wanted to learn the dramatic arts, and how to sorta host the Oscars, and how to write coming-of-age novels, and how to make everyone wonder if opening an acting school was kind of a weird prank maybe.

Seven Grand’s Discreet New Whiskey Bar
JUMPING JACK

Seven Grand’s Discreet New Whiskey Bar

You go to Seven Grand. You see a lot of people and whiskey. You... keep going. Past the bar. To the doorbell in the hallway. Ring the doorbell, and you’ll enter Bar Jackalope, a quiet new four-table bar filled with jackalope heads and long whiskey menus. Good story, right?

Sun-Thu, 9pm, Bar Jackalope at Seven Grand, 515 W 7th St, 213-614-0736

Friday
A Bright, Beachy Abbot Kinney Pop-Up
SOL SURFER

A Bright, Beachy Abbot Kinney Pop-Up

Winter beach weather requires winter beach attire. And beer. Hit the new Sol Angeles pop-up on Abbot Kinney on First Friday, and you’ll find all requisite DJs, T-shirts and hoodies. And beer.

Feb 7, 6-11pm (pop-up open through Feb 15), Sol Angeles, 1306 Abbot Kinney Blvd, 323-463-7600

Saturday
DJs, Dancing and Bingo
FOR WHOM REBEL TOLLS

DJs, Dancing and Bingo

Last time you played bingo, you... can’t really remember the last time you played bingo. But you’ll remember coming to Rebel Bingo this Saturday. Something about being surrounded by DJs, dancing and titillating performers while you try to win a Linus bike. Tends to stick with you.

Feb 8, 8pm, $22, Rebel Bingo at 333 Live, 333 S Boylston St, 213-989-7979, 50 tickets reserved for UD members here

Sunday
Drink Beer, Buy Lingerie, Eat Umami...
WALK HARD

Drink Beer, Buy Lingerie, Eat Umami...

Trouble with Downtown’s art walks is, they’re not Shopwalk. Like an art walk without the art, Shopwalk involves discounts on drinks at Umami and Buzz, $5 “happy meals” at Pete’s and up to 50% off at LaTres Lingerie. If only you had a pending reason to buy someone lingerie...
