Things to do for June 12, 2014

The Weekender

Nudity, Oceanside Steak and Fast Cars

Your weekend’s expanding its brand.

Thursday
Bring a Date to Eatz Tonight
BACON THE RULES

Bring a Date to Eatz Tonight

You’re already a skilled bacon chef. But on the off chance you need to brush up on your bacon tempura and chocolate-dipped bacon skills, head to Eatz—they’ve got a class involving five bacon courses and wine. Luckily, there will be a test on this.

Friday
A Glass Steakhouse over the Sea
MASTRO’S AND COMMANDER

A Glass Steakhouse over the Sea

Mastro’s is usually astute in anticipating your Friday night steakhouse-date needs, which just so happen to require crab-stuffed mushrooms, oysters and live Maine lobster in a gleaming new glass house perched right over the Pacific Ocean. They really got it right this week.

Saturday
You Must Yield to the Pantsless
NUDE AWAKENING

You Must Yield to the Pantsless

You’re sitting with friends over a bleary-eyed brunch at Brite Spot when several dozen people of various shapes and sizes start riding by on bikes without their clothing on. Yup, they’re just participants in Saturday’s World Naked Bike Ride. Turns out, you’re still naked if you’re wearing a helmet.

Sunday
Some of These Cars Might Have Agents
DIVIDE AND CONCOURS

Some of These Cars Might Have Agents

Rodeo Drive doesn’t do normal car shows. It does 100-year-old car shows with celebrity cars, like the Beverly Hillbillies wagon and some sporty, shiny things from Entourage. The Concours D’Elegance is back, and the kicking of tires is not encouraged.

Tuesday
Poolside Cinema at Mr. C
RIPLEY, BELIEVE IT OR NOT

Poolside Cinema at Mr. C

Your ideal summer movie generally has breathtaking sun-dappled scenery, glamorous stars and maybe an identity-stealing sociopath. Enter Mr. C’s new poolside summer film series, which features The Talented Mr. Ripley, pizza and Italian beers this Tuesday. The beer is really a brave artistic choice.
