Things to do for September 04, 2014
Football, Manhattans and Beach Burgers
Weekends never quit and quitters never weekend.
Are You Ready for Some Boa?
You may have heard, tonight’s kickoff night. As you may not have heard, Boa just found space for a new lounge with a big screen, barrel-aged Manhattans and truffle nachos for your steakhouse game-watching needs. No disrespect to your famous truffle nachos.
Lamb Burgers. With an Ocean.
Technically, you can’t legally beach-drink in Playa del Rey. Technically. Regardless, now there’s Bacari, a snug new little beach-adjacent wine bar from the Bacaro guys with plentiful bacon pizzas and lamb burgers. Beach laws are more lenient about lamb burgers, but still.
The Best New Strip-Mall Wine Shop
Lou Amdur’s moving his wine shop to Los Feliz on Friday. Here’s what you’ll find:
1) Natural wines from Western Europe and rare gems from Eastern Europe.
2) Guided wine-tasting events.
3) Hard ciders and sour ales.
4) At least one guy named Lou.
Yup, a Night with Pancake Mountain
Where you should be Friday night: the Ace’s theater. People like Karen O, Santigold and Cat Power selected the lineup of performers like Nite Jewel and video installations from the likes of Pancake Mountain for the show. Cat Power’s place apparently doesn’t hold 1,600 people.

Sundays at Sunset Marquis are no longer just for eating kale next to Steven Tyler. Now they’re also for watching novelists, chefs and porn stars read from their books at the hotel’s new monthly literary series. First up is American Dream Machine author Matthew Specktor. Next month’s the porn star.
