Things to do for March 21, 2014
Margaritas, Cheesesteaks and a Critical Delivery
The weekend is the time of plans and projects.

Picture it. Spontaneous date night at your place. The food: getting delivered in an hour. The wine: getting delivered in an hour. The condoms... getting delivered in an hour. That’s a thing that happens now. Condom delivery. This delivery man is going to have some stories.
Four Great Chefs, One Malibu Pier
Your Sunday evening on the Malibu Pier, by the numbers: eight courses of seafood. Four great chefs (surnames Morningstar, Fullilove, Frankland Lee and Collins). One soulful chanteuse to serenade you. And... a lot of crashing waves. Not sure how many.
Something Weird at Ray’s and Stark Bar
Monday marks Ray’s and Stark Bar’s third birthday, and it will do what it wants. That involves turning into a full Mexican cantina for the night, with margarita pitchers, octopus huaraches, tacos al pastor and gratis lamb carved tableside. It’s probably just a stage.
