Thursday
Gjelina Makes You Breakfast Now
LIBERTY AND GJUSTA FOR ALL

Gjelina Makes You Breakfast Now

Just in time for Halloween, Gjelina’s dressed up as a bakery with pastries, freshly baked bread, porchetta sandwiches, smoked salmon and cured fish. Wait, no, that’s just... Gjelina’s new bakery, Gjusta. The “j” isn’t silent.

Now open, Gjusta, 320 Sunset Ave, Venice, 310-314-0320

Friday
Two New Places for Oysters and Dogs
AW, SHUCK

Two New Places for Oysters and Dogs

11:47am: You’re at the new shell-shaped counter at Grand Central Market, eating five types of oysters. Maybe some shrimp.
5:38pm: You’ve hit the Pier for sunset, distracted by Japanese hot dogs with kimchi and tempura shrimp at Japadog.
9:30pm: You’re... somewhere else. Not a bad day overall.

Pumpkin. It’s Better in Beer.
ORANGE IS THE NEW BEER

Pumpkin. It’s Better in Beer.

Halloween doesn’t have to be too crazy. Sometimes you can just bring a date to Buzz for a low-key tasting of five pumpkin beers, like a chocolate pumpkin porter and smoked-pumpkin cider. There’ll be plenty of Downtown crazy right outside.

Saturday
Let Someone Else Do the Shaving
BEARD SCIENCE

Let Someone Else Do the Shaving

Wait, put down your razor. You should probably let a professional step in. Baxter Finley is offering gratis shaves Saturday to kick off Movember. Plus, they’ll give you a gift bag with face-grooming products and a razor. And your bathroom won’t.

Nov 1, 11am-9pm, Baxter Finley, 515 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-657-4726

Monday
Neil Young Expresses His Vision
PAINTIN’ IN THE FREE WORLD

Neil Young Expresses His Vision

You know Neil Young. He’s that prolific painter who does great watercolors of classic cars and is showing them at Robert Berman Gallery through November 29. Rumor is, he’s also decent on guitar.
