The Weekender

Bourbon, Donuts and Homicidal Maniacs

Tempted by the weekend of another.

Thursday
Jell-O Negronis at the Varnish
JIGGLE IT, JUST A LITTLE BIT

Jell-O Negronis at the Varnish

Reasons you just might prefer your Negronis in Jell-O form at the Varnish this weekend:
1) They don’t spill.
2) They exist.

Available through Jun 8, $2, The Varnish, 118 E 6th St, 213-622-9999

Friday
Lo Mein with a Dark Secret
SECRET SERVICE

Lo Mein with a Dark Secret

Instead of delivery from your usual Chinese place, you can now get agave-spiced spare ribs and General Tso’s free-range chicken delivered from a Chinese place that refuses to reveal its true identity. So maybe it is your usual Chinese place. Dun dun dun.

Five Courses of Bourbon and Donuts
THE DONUT DIET

Five Courses of Bourbon and Donuts

Eating five donuts for dinner would be totally crazy. Unless they came in flavors like rocky road and butterscotch-toffee, and you ate them alongside five good bourbons at BLD. Then it’d just be a display of good sense.

Jun 6, 3-11pm, BLD, 7450 Beverly Blvd, reservations recommended at 323-930-9744

Camping with Psychopaths
INTO THE WOODS

Camping with Psychopaths

Sure, you could unwind at the beach this weekend. Or spend a night camping in the haunted old Griffith Park zoo, embarking on an all-night scavenger hunt while a cast of maniacs pursues you through the Great Horror Campout’s river of blood. Gotta be warmer than the ocean.

Saturday
At the Races, It’s Whiskey by a Head
WHAT’S AT STAKE

At the Races, It’s Whiskey by a Head

California Chrome might win Saturday’s Belmont Stakes. But you still believe whiskey’s got a fighting shot. The viewing party in Santa Anita’s Chandelier Room features food and wine with help from some Mozza alums and... wait, coming from behind, it’s whiskey cocktails from a Harvard & Stone vet.
