Things to do for February 20, 2014

The Weekender

Sriracha Fries. Pulp Fiction. Dancing at the Ace.

Heeeeeeeeere’s the weekend.

Thursday
60% Off at Mohawk General Store
GENERAL MERCHANDISE

60% Off at Mohawk General Store

Soon these frigid 75-degree winter days will become boiling 80-degree spring days. Mohawk General Store is here to help you prep with a big 60%-off sale, including Gitman and Alex Mill button-downs. Or as you call them, windbreakers.

First, There Was Black Swan...
DANCE DANCE REVOLUTION

First, There Was Black Swan...

You might know Benjamin Millepied best as Mr. Natalie Portman. But if you hit the Ace’s theater tonight, you’ll know him better as the choreographer of Reflections, one of three new LA Dance Project pieces. Sadly, no one makes out with Mila Kunis.

Friday
Beer Belly’s New Cheesesteak Shop
IT’S ALWAYS SUNNY IN K-TOWN

Beer Belly’s New Cheesesteak Shop

You’ve long relied on K-Town for Korean barbecue, but less so for Philly cheesesteaks. Seemed like good logic until you found Beer Belly’s new corner shop, Whiz, which is putting faithful Philly cheesesteaks on Amoroso rolls—with sides like sriracha cheese fries and red curry wings. Cheesesteaks: 1, logic: 0.

Now open, Whiz, 3901 W 6th St, Koreatown, 213-249-9449

Saturday
A Pulp Fiction–Inspired Party
ZED: STILL DEAD

A Pulp Fiction–Inspired Party

So there’s a wild Pulp Fiction–inspired art party happening at a secret Hollywood location on Saturday. If you’re thinking your night will involve Pulp Fiction burlesque, live painting, photography, actual leather gimps and a complicated nonlinear structure, you’re... mostly right.

Mark Peel Pops Up at Il Grano
PEELING OUT

Mark Peel Pops Up at Il Grano

Republique’s great and all, but you’ve been missing the way Mark Peel used to flawlessly char your rosemary lamb at Campanile. This weekend and next, he’s doing a five-course dinner at Il Grano with chef/owner Salvatore Marino, and that includes spring lamb three ways. It’s a start.

Feb 21-22, Feb 28 and Mar 1, Mark Peel at Il Grano, 11359 Santa Monica Blvd, West LA, reservations recommended at 310-477-7886
