New Donuts and the Return of Beacher’s Madhouse

Look, weekend, no hands.

Wednesday
Beacher’s Strikes Back
BEACH PARTY

Beacher’s Strikes Back

Your Hollywood nights have been noticeably short on champagne-pouring little people flying out of cuckoo clocks. That changes tonight, when Beacher’s Madhouse starts previews of its new debauched vaudeville show back at the Roosevelt. Just in time for... anything requiring that.

BANDINI IN THE USA

Direct Your Wine Dates Here

Not sure what you did this time. Must have been remarkable. Or maybe the universe just randomly spawned this cozy Echo Park wine-and-beer roost called Bar Bandini for all your low-lit, knee-brushing date needs. Only the universe knows.

Now open, Bar Bandini, 2150 Sunset Blvd, Echo Park

Thursday
Wherein Kelly Slater Blesses Your Torso
SLATE OR DIE

Wherein Kelly Slater Blesses Your Torso

Kelly Slater’s new label, Outerknown, has all these nicely designed jackets, sweaters and button-downs for your hypothetical fall. And the entire collection is now nicely arranged among its first shop-within-a-shop at Downtown’s Wittmore. Ah, jackets. Remember jackets?

Oct 15-Nov 15; opening party Oct 15, 6-8pm; Outerknown at Wittmore, 300 S Santa Fe Ave, Downtown, 213-626-0780

Saturday
First, Oysters. Then, Tacos.
EVENT HORIZON

First, Oysters. Then, Tacos.

October 17. You’ll forever remember it as the day you began by eating oysters and fish from spots like Fig, Herringbone and Jolly Oyster on the pier, and ended at Downtown’s Taste of México with a Guerrilla taco in one hand and a michelada in the other. Can’t wait for the film version.

Monday
Portland Brought Donuts
A STAR IS BORN

Portland Brought Donuts

Portland’s a donut town. We’re a donut town. So it only makes sense that on Monday, they’ll give you gratis donuts at a preview of Blue Star, maker of brioche donuts topped with stuff like bourbon-infused blueberries. We’ll give them more TV series making fun of their enviable work/life balance.

Preview Oct 19, 8am; opens Oct 21, 8am; Blue Star Donuts, 1142 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 310-450-5630
