The Weekender

Marilyn Monroe, Rick Bayless and Rick James

Weekends with Morrie

Friday
A Marilyn Monroe Exhibit. You Accept.
DREAM STATE

A Marilyn Monroe Exhibit. You Accept.

Welcome to the Limited Runs Marilyn Monroe photography exhibit. Here you’ll find 21 previously unseen, large-format color separations from the 1949 nude “Red Velvet” shoot, which were used to produce Monroe’s now-iconic “Golden Dreams” calendar. If you look closely, you’ll notice—never mind, these really don’t require much explanation.

Rick James. An Open Bar. Perfect.
MAGIC RICK

Rick James. An Open Bar. Perfect.

What you’ll find at the Record Parlour’s Rick James vinyl rerelease party: an open bar, live DJs and a display featuring some of James’s most outlandish stage attire. What you won’t find: Dave Chappelle. Probably. You never know where that guy might show up.

Saturday
Happy Day for Santa Monica
SANTA BABY

Happy Day for Santa Monica

Los Angeles: We’ve got some things for you.
Santa Monica:
What are they?
LA:
First, an outpost of Herringbone (for whole-fish ceviche and the like). Then, Rick Bayless’s Red O (for Mexican-style surf and turf).
SM:
Is that all?
LA:
Careful now.

General Quarters Seems to Like You
GENERALLY SPEAKING

General Quarters Seems to Like You

Seven hours. That’s how long you’ll have at General Quarters to comb through a significantly discounted selection of Rogue Territory denim and the store’s eponymous T-shirts, jackets and pants and things. So take all the time you need, as long as it’s not longer than seven hours.

You Can Only Get This Beer Here
LION KING

You Can Only Get This Beer Here

The point of the Lion and the Mouse fable is that a Belgian-style dubbel brewed using a single barley varietal in Napa Valley tastes really good with wild boar sausage. No, wait. That’s the point of the Lion and the Mouse beer pop-up at the Peninsula. Classic mix-up.
