The Weekender

Underwear Models, Fried Chicken and Purple Rain

Shark Weekend

STICK IT

Here, Have a Pimm’s Cup Popsicle

Pimm’s Cups work well in early summer, sure. Come August, though, might be time for two secret weapons: Pimm’s Cup popsicles and the Caña patio. They make those there now, along with floats made with rum, Mexican Coke and strawberry/Angostura bitters ice cream. Oh sure, that old play.

SPECIAL DELIVERY

About That Underwear-Model Delivery...

That booze-delivery app Saucey has a weird idea for this Friday. Place an order between 4 and 9pm, and your order just might be brought to your door by a MeUndies underwear model in her... uniform. Well, that’s one way to start a weekend.

Aug 15, 4-9pm, Saucey, must use code “MeUndies” when ordering

Saturday
Fried Chicken, Three Ways
BATTER UP

Fried Chicken, Three Ways

Sometimes, you crave fried chicken. Sometimes, you crave an unholy fried-chicken trifecta. Saturday night, Blank Kitchen has three chefs offering Korean fried chicken, Indonesian fried chicken and Algerian fried chicken. If you don’t know what Algerian fried chicken is, well, that seems pretty inexcusable.

Your Forecast Calls for Purple Rain
THE LITTLE PRINCE

Your Forecast Calls for Purple Rain

Movies just need a few standard elements to become classics—like pirate shirts and Lake Minnetonka. Purple Rain is 30 years young, and the Coolhaus truck will be at the Griffith Park screening to get you through the bad-bad scenes that are between the amazing-bad scenes.

Sunday
$1 Pizza. The Good Kind.
THIS IS THE END

$1 Pizza. The Good Kind.

Someone says $1 pizza, you think cardboard covered in “cheese.” Well, South End’s chef is a Mozza vet, and he’s got 12 pizza-option reasons why you’re wrong, covered in Nueske’s bacon and truffle salt, for the place’s first birthday. Those are 12 great reasons to be wrong.

Aug 17, 4:30-11pm, South End, 2805 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 424-228-4736
