Grab an Espresso and Maybe a Kitten

At cafés not named Catfe LA: You walk in, you get an espresso. That’s about it.
At pop-up cafés in Chinatown named Catfe LA: You walk in, you get an espresso... and you notice the place is crawling with cats. They’re all up for adoption. We have nothing further to add.

Oct 2-5, 4-9pm, Catfe LA at Far East Plaza, 727 N Broadway, Chinatown, reservations suggested, more info here

You May Have Heard of This Guy
TARANTINO UNCHAINED

You May Have Heard of This Guy

Quentin Tarantino. You know that celebrated actor. Well, now he’s got this side gig programming every film showing at New Beverly Cinema. Tonight there’s a Paul Mazursky double feature, followed by a week of Pulp Fiction and The Professional. He really admires Pulp Fiction.

Saturday
A Different Sort of Oktoberfest...
OKTOFUFEST

A Different Sort of Oktoberfest...

Traditionally, you’ve demanded four things from Oktoberfest: beer, polka, pretzels and tubular meat. In Santa Monica, you can forgo the last one. They’re doing a vegan Oktoberfest. Should be fine. If there’s still beer.

Tuesday
Live from Hollywood, It’s Brisket
PARTY IN THE BACK LOT

Live from Hollywood, It’s Brisket

How Hollywood barbecues in October: oh, just a three-week party in Jimmy Kimmel’s back lot featuring short-rib-and-ribeye sandwiches (and that smoked brisket you remember from last year) from award-winning pitmaster Adam Perry Lang. All due respect to your grill.

Wednesday
Flappers Doing “Anaconda” at Hyde
PROS AND ’CONDA

Flappers Doing “Anaconda” at Hyde

Now’s the time to plan a date night at Hyde—they’ve got a new show involving a jazz band and flappers doing flapper-y versions of songs like “Fancy,” “Anaconda” and the Game of Thrones theme. Thankfully, they leave The Newsroom out of it.
