The Weekender

Sweet Potato Falafel and a Tour de Wilshire

It was really a love story about weekend all along.

APOLIS CREED

This Apolis Sale Has Some 90%-Off Stuff

Apparently, winter happens in April now. Upside: perfect timing for this big Apolis sample sale where you’ll find up to 90% off on alpaca sweaters, blazers and military-style jackets. For your long, blustery march to Sushi Gen.

Lamb Leg Pizza, Meet Silver Lake
WOOD YOU RATHER

Lamb Leg Pizza, Meet Silver Lake

It was hard not to feel kind of sentimental when Tom’s Burgers got scrubbed off Sunset. But now that burger-shaped hole in your heart is getting filled with Wood’s new pizza. Thin-crust, wood-fired pizza topped with lamb leg and mint, or smoked mozzarella and brussels sprouts. Or other non-burger-shaped things.

Friday
Late-Night Burgers Next to Little Joy
IN THE TRENCH

Late-Night Burgers Next to Little Joy

Little Joy. Sometime past midnight. You need to head home. But first you need to do something you might regret in the morning—like turning the corner to eat grass-fed burgers and sandwiches stuffed with house-cured corned beef, brisket and fried chicken at Trencher. Actually, none of those sound regrettable.

Now open (closed Apr 3), Trencher, 1305 Portia St, Echo Park, 323-432-6507

Saturday
Sweet Potato Falafel on Melrose
LEGENDS OF THE FALA

Sweet Potato Falafel on Melrose

Sure, you’ve done your share of falafel—but you haven’t even started on your share of sweet potato falafel. Melrose’s new Fala Bar has that, though if you’d rather do a kale salad and hummus, you could do a kale salad and hummus. Right. If you’d rather. 

Now open, Fala Bar, 7751 1/2 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, 323-424-7131

Sunday
Wilshire’s Last CicLAvia Ride
BREAKING THE CYCLE

Wilshire’s Last CicLAvia Ride

It’s been ages since you leisurely rode your bike down a car-free Wilshire, wind in your hair, taco in your hand... So it’s important that you hit CicLAvia on Sunday. It’s the last time on Wilshire for a while due to Purple Line construction. Which obviously will be finished on time.

Apr 6, 9am-4pm, CicLAvia, Wilshire Blvd between Fairfax and Grand
