Things to do for November 20, 2014

The Weekender

Golden Disco Balls, Skewers and Turducken Dogs

What’s wrong with the weekend being sexy?

Thursday
Rum Punching in Chinatown
LEE MAJOR

Rum Punching in Chinatown

By now, you know people referencing “General Lee” might mean:
A) The Duke boys’ Dodge Charger.
B) A bearded commander of the Confederacy.
C) A newly revamped, sexy Chinatown bar with B-movie posters, some bamboo walls and rum punch.
D) All of the above. Yeah. D sounds right.

40% Off Some Good Gant Stuff
GANT TOUCH THIS

40% Off Some Good Gant Stuff

Wow, feel that? It’s actually kind of chilly out there. Time to stop by either Gant shop. They’ve got 40% off nice items like a salt-and-pepper blazer, cable-knit sweater and double-breasted wool spectator coat. So you can finally spectate correctly.

Through Dec 1, Gant Rugger, 1308 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 424-272-9558; 101 S La Brea Ave, 323-591-1148

Friday
An NYC Dance Party, Circa 1980
THE GOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

An NYC Dance Party, Circa 1980

The dude behind Genesis is opening a new place called Golden Box tomorrow. It’s a tribute to licentious 1980s New York, with Interview magazine covering the floors, golden disco balls and a girl on a swing shooting confetti. How those went out of style, you’ll never know.

Opens Nov 21, Golden Box, 6685 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 323-637-5300

Saturday
Finally, Handheld Turducken
ALPHA DOG

Finally, Handheld Turducken

Good news: Dog Haus is opening a new Burbank location. Best news: they also sell a seasonal turducken dog made of turkey, chicken and duck with whiskey-soaked cranberries. Guess we know what you’re bringing to Thanksgiving... probably something else. But still.

Opens Nov 22, Dog Haus, 3817 W Olive Ave, Burbank, 626-796-4287

Tuesday
Centeno Will Skewer That
WHAT ABOUT KEBAB

Centeno Will Skewer That

Josef Centeno found some free time between making puffy tacos and burgers and inventing new bacos. So he’s using it to serve you a prix fixe pile of indulgent Japanese-Italian skewers and Japanese beer for two nights at Orsa & Winston. Guess he doesn’t just watch Netflix.
