The Weekender

Ant Ice Cream, Graffiti Art and Vegan Oktoberfest

Where the Wild Weekends Are

Wednesday
CasaLinda’s Back. It’s Got Tequila Now.
CASA AND EFFECT

CasaLinda’s Back. It’s Got Tequila Now.

Abbot Kinney taco disaster averted. You can now go back to CasaLinda’s regularly scheduled lunches of tortilla soup and al pastor tortas, because it’s just reopened inside of Primitivo. And make sure to test out some of their new tequilas. Be firm, but fair.

Thursday
A Date Wouldn’t Hate This
PAINT BALL

A Date Wouldn’t Hate This

A swarm of street artists is taking over Siren Studios this weekend. They’re covering the walls with their paintings, installations and prints. It’s going to be bedlam. No, wait... It’s actually a three-day festival dedicated to their work. They’re totally allowed to do that.

Friday
Those Are Sprinkles, Right?
BUG IT OUT

Those Are Sprinkles, Right?

Starting Friday, Salt & Straw will serve Halloween flavors including a green-grass scoop packed with ants and other bugs preserved in hard candy amber. Meanwhile, Little Spoon will pop up at the Brig with a cart full of frozen puddings like s’mores and peanut butter brownie, should you take your cold desserts bug-less.

Saturday
This Is Still Real Life. We Checked.
LET THE GAMES VEGAN

This Is Still Real Life. We Checked.

That attractive vegan you’re seeing wants to experience the many-splendored joys of Oktoberfest. Enter: Vegan Oktoberfest. Yep. Over 50 breweries will be there, plus food from Donut Friend, the Springs and Sage. There will be other, less vegan Oktoberfests next year.

Sunday
The Return of a Paella Master
PERFECTO STRANGERS

The Return of a Paella Master

You missed former Smoke.Oil.Salt chef Perfecto Rocher. And he missed you. But now, you’ll have Sundays together at Hinoki & the Bird, where he’s making three paellas. And Mondays, when he’ll do five courses of stuff like foie chestnut soup and wood-fired octopus. In your heart, you always knew he’d be back.

Sun-Mon through Oct 26, Hinoki & the Bird, 10 Century Dr, Century City, 310-552-1200
