The Weekender

Scotch, Horses and Jokes About Food

Even Travolta can correctly pronounce the weekend.

Thursday
Suits Don’t Get Any Sharper
DUNCAN CHECKS IN

Suits Don’t Get Any Sharper

No one is saying you need a new suit. But we figured you should at least be aware that Duncan Quinn is in town for the next few days and he’s taking appointments to personally fit you for a hand-cut, made-to-measure number. No pressure, but he flew all this way...

Through Mar 9, Duncan Quinn, 8234 W 3rd St, 323-782-9205, email for appointment here

Have You Heard the One About the Pie
JOKING HAZARD

Have You Heard the One About the Pie

Tonight, a group of five comedians will tell their funniest food stories at the Standard. So you’ll show up, relax over a couple of drinks and laugh as some people you probably recognize from Conan and Chelsea Lately try out their best kale material. Come hungry.

Saturday
Horses, Beers and Bands at Santa Anita
NEIGH SAY

Horses, Beers and Bands at Santa Anita

The Kentucky Derby has funny hats. Santa Anita this Saturday has 30 California breweries, local bands and a bunch of Pasadena barbecue. So this Saturday at Santa Anita is better than the Kentucky Derby. Fact.

Sunday
This Mimosa Never Ends
STARTED FROM THE BOTTOMLESS

This Mimosa Never Ends

There are two ways to do the LA Marathon. Train for months, then compete in a grueling 26.2-mile run. Or have Sunday brunch at the Andaz, drinking bottomless Bloody Marys and mimosas while you watch other people exert themselves. Perhaps you could cheer between sips.

Monday
A Meal Made of Oysters and Scotch
NOW AND HEN

A Meal Made of Oysters and Scotch

Mud Hen Tavern has an idea. It’s a simple one, really. They’re taking the worst day of the week (Monday) and attempting to improve it by offering a special triple pairing of single malt scotch and oysters. You like their odds.

Mar 10, 5-10pm, $25, Mud Hen Tavern, 742 N Highland Ave, Hollywood, 323-203-0500
