The Weekender

Great Whites, Clambakes and Maradona

Social media tinkered with your weekend’s emotions.

Thursday
Speaking of Fútbol...
FÚTLOOSE

Speaking of Fútbol...

Way before Messi, there was Diego Maradona—the Argentine soccer god best known for his controversial “Hand of God” goal in the ’86 World Cup (well, and for his next-level mullet). Anyway, the Hammer’s showing a doc about him. It’ll explain the goal. The mullet remains a mystery.

Jul 3, 7:30-9:30pm, Maradona at the Hammer Museum, 10899 Wilshire Blvd, 310-443-7000, gratis tickets available at box office starting at 6:30pm

Friday
A Farmers’ Market. For Pot.
IN THE WEEDS

A Farmers’ Market. For Pot.

What you need to know about the city’s first medical marijuana farmers’ market:
1) There will be a lot of “farmers” selling “legal” cannabis there.
2) You have to be a “patient” to attend.
3) It will force us to use a lot of “air quotes.”

Your Garlic Knots: Elevated
SPAGHETTI WESTERN

Your Garlic Knots: Elevated

Everything has to be American tomorrow. Even your pasta. Bucato knows this. So it’s changing its authentic Italian concept to an authentic Italian-American concept for the day. Meaning garlic knots, spaghetti and meatballs and so on. U-S-A... U-S-A...

Jul 4, 5-11:30pm, Bucato, 3280 Helms Ave, Culver City, 310-876-0286

Saturday
There Are Clambakes, and Then There’s...
SHELL OF A TIME

There Are Clambakes, and Then There’s...

... this one Saturday at Cabana Restaurant, conveniently adjacent to the Four Seasons pool. You prefer a clambake with a view.

Vinyl Is Worshipped Here
VINYL COUNTDOWN

Vinyl Is Worshipped Here

The Fifth of July. Always overshadowed for some reason. Maybe because there isn’t normally a gratis Downtown concert with a bike valet, a vinyl swap meet, Stones Throw DJs like Peanut Butter Wolf and a break-dancing contest. We like your chances, by the way.

It’s No Sharknado, But.
THIS BITES

It’s No Sharknado, But.

You. A few bands. Some food trucks. The lawn of the Autry Center. Oh, and Jaws, on a giant screen. You’re gonna need a bigger blanket...
