Are you going to upgrade your weekend?

SEPTEMBER OF ’69

Make Way for the ’69 Cadillac Hot Tub

Kickstarter is organizing a film festival in Griffith Park tomorrow. You’ll find crowdfunded documentaries, shorts and animated movies. You’ll also find Reubens and a hot-tub-equipped ’69 Cadillac. So, yes, they thought of everything.

Saturday
Abbot Kinney Gets Two Good New Shops
WARBY & BONE

Abbot Kinney Gets Two Good New Shops

That slight offshore breeze you feel? Good enough reason to get a new flannel at Rag & Bone’s Abbot Kinney shop, opening Friday. They’ve got a landscaped patio in back, so maybe you’ll want some shades from Warby Parker’s new shop just up the street, opening Saturday. That worked out.

Opens Sep 12, Rag & Bone, 1118 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 424-291-3120; opens Sep 13, Warby Parker, 1422 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 310-280-2055

An Ice Cream Truck... and a BLT Truck
WHEELS OF FORTUNE

An Ice Cream Truck... and a BLT Truck

Remember the last time food trucks got you pumped? All right. Well, just focus on the now. Marcona is debuting a BLT truck, and Nitropod is finally hitting the streets on Saturday with liquid nitrogen flash-frozen ice cream. Feels good, right?

Monday
Good Drinks and Pig’s-Ear Fries
MURPH’S UP

Good Drinks and Pig’s-Ear Fries

Valley friends. You have a few of those. And Monday, you’ll have a casual new spot from the Tipple & Brine crew to meet them at. Expect 20 beers on tap, tequila-habanero cocktails from a Honeycut vet, fried chicken and pig’s-ear fries. Oh, sure, that old lineup.

Opens Sep 15, Murph’s, 14649 Ventura Blvd, Sherman Oaks, 818-986-9999

These Cocktails Have No Bottom
THE KEY TO HAPPINESS

These Cocktails Have No Bottom

The Church Key’s got a nice opposite-of-Monday-Night-Football situation brewing. It involves you, a date and a champagne cart bringing bottomless drinks like Kir Royales and Bellinis for $17. Whoops, did we say the opposite of Monday Night Football... we meant, no, yeah, the opposite of Monday Night Football.

Mondays starting Sep 15, The Church Key, 8730 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, 424-249-3700
