The Weekender

Donuts with Wine... Oysters and Cocktails...

The weekend paints world leaders in its spare time.

Thursday
A Cuban Party for Your Head
HAT TRICKS

A Cuban Party for Your Head

Cuban jazz, Cuban hats, Cuba libres—all things you’d obviously find if you went to... Melrose. Tonight, Goorin Bros. is hosting a Havana-themed party for their new Cuban baseball and straw hats. Things you’ll want now that the sun is back.

Here’s Five Courses of Donuts and Wine
’NUT JOB

Here’s Five Courses of Donuts and Wine

Well, here’s a five-course meal you probably haven’t had before—Glazed has a wine-paired series of chicken beignets and parmesan-garlic donut holes for you tonight. Whatever else you had planned probably didn’t involve five courses of donuts. So, sorry, other plans.

Apr 10, 6:30-8:30pm, $12, Glazed Donut Bistro, 8807 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-360-0221

Friday
Black Hogg’s New Sandwich Division
HOLDING OUT FOR A HERO

Black Hogg’s New Sandwich Division

Black Hogg just opened a Downtown banh mi place called HeroShop. It’s a source for all your blood sausage, BBQ pork and headcheese sandwich needs, and it also has fatty brisket rice bowls, Vietnamese iced coffee and chips. Gotta have chips with your headcheese.

Now soft-open, HeroShop, 130 E 6th St, Downtown, 213-265-7561

Saturday
Sexy Parked Cars at the Petersen
COUPE, THERE IT IS

Sexy Parked Cars at the Petersen

Well, the Petersen rounded up a random assortment of car aficionados like Francis Ford Coppola, James Hetfield and Patrick Dempsey, asked them which sports coupe they fantasize about owning, then put those cars on display. Either so you can go see those cars, or so they could taunt Dempsey.

Monday
An Oyster-and-Cocktail Nirvana
RISE AND BRINE

An Oyster-and-Cocktail Nirvana

A shiny new oyster bar opens Monday afternoon. Nice. With a seafood-focused menu from two Tasting Kitchen/Parish vets. Great. And cocktails from a Varnish and La Descarga alum. Super. In Sherman Oaks... Well, you do go there occasionally.

Opens Apr 14, Tipple & Brine, 14633 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, 818-528-2550
