The Weekender

Fight Night, Mezcal and Pancakes

The age of weekend.

The ArcLight Fades in on Culver City
ARC OF TRIUMPH

The ArcLight Fades in on Culver City

Dinner at East Borough: great. Dinner and a movie at East Borough, then the ArcLight: now not an absurd idea. Culver City’s own ArcLight opens tomorrow with its cushy, reservable seats. There aren’t any funny jokes about movie popcorn left in the world, sorry.

A Jacket, Some Gold Staples
ASSEMBLY REQUIRED

A Jacket, Some Gold Staples

The people behind Scout are opening the first West Coast location of Assembly tomorrow. And they’ve scoured the world for good-looking stuff like Feit’s handmade shoes, Dutch-made 14-karat gold staples and sharp linen suit jackets of their own devising. All so you didn’t have to.

Opens May 1, Assembly, 7977 Melrose Ave, 323-746-5090

Saturday
Bourbon Bacon Chocolate Pancakes Exist
EMPIRE OF THE SON

Bourbon Bacon Chocolate Pancakes Exist

Ox & Son knows you have a busy weekend to do. So they’re slipping bourbon, bacon and chocolate into your pancakes and calling it brunch. So that’s killing like six birds with one stone. Depending on your pancake intake.

Sat-Sun starting May 2, 10:30am-2:30pm, Ox & Son, 1534 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, 310-829-3990

A Suitable Venue for Fisticuffs
SATURDAY FIGHT LIVE

A Suitable Venue for Fisticuffs

Saturday night. Could be Mayweather. Could be Pac-Man. Either way, you’ll enjoy a civilized good time at Beverly Wilshire’s Sidebar. Because they’re showing the fight on their big screens while feeding you bottomless bar eats and cocktails. And because no one is punching at your head.

Monday
Getting to the Mezcal Part
HOT MEZ

Getting to the Mezcal Part

A spicy Nashville chicken outfit named Howlin’ Ray’s takes over Barrel & Ashes on Monday. Meanwhile, Harvard & Stone is dedicating the week to mezcal with help from Guelaguetza and some live bands. Both sound like a good call for a Monday. Cuatro de Mayo, you see.
