Things to do for October 28, 2015

The Weekender

Thriller, Chocolate Beer and a Michelada-Dispensing Volkswagen

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the weekend...

Wednesday
Pok Pok. Udon. Go.
THE ONE WHO POKS

Pok Pok. Udon. Go.

As of today, you’ll find Pok Pok’s Chinatown clone open for super-famous Thai wings, drinking vinegars and green papaya salad. Or you can eschew super-famous Thai for Tokyo’s Musashiya, now hand-making udon daily at a new Westwood location. They’re super-famous, too... in Japan.

Now open, 11:30am-midnight, Pok Pok LA, 978 N Broadway, Chinatown, 213-613-1831; now open, Musashiya Udon, 11am-10pm, 1049 Gayley Ave, Westwood, 310-208-5999

Friday
You’ve Never Tried These Beers
BEER ITSELF

You’ve Never Tried These Beers

New Beer Alert: On Friday, ChocoVivo’s tapping kegs of their yet-to-be-released oatmeal and mocha stouts, both of which contain pure cacao. Samples will be given until they run dry. Then Saturday, Dry River Brewing debuts three of its first beers at Osso. One’s called Copper Witch. Timely.

Saturday
Five Fancy Courses of Doom
CATCH AND MELISSE

Five Fancy Courses of Doom

Fun-size Snickers? Sure. That’s good. A five-course prix fixe menu at Mélisse with dishes like Eyeball Monkfish, Ribs and Bones, and a Bleeding Brain Sundae? Yep. Better.

Oct 31, $95, Mélisse, 1104 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, reserve at 310-395-0881

Little Thriller-Themed Party Here
NATURAL BORN THRILLER

Little Thriller-Themed Party Here

You know the song. You know the dance. Now, it’s time to live out your Thriller fantasies at E.P. & L.P. The rooftop will turn into a graveyard. Frankie’s Private Bar will become a haunted house. You’ll dress the part. So if you’ve ever wanted to embrace red leather...

Sunday
Your Morning-After Brunch Scheme
THE SADIE BUNCH

Your Morning-After Brunch Scheme

Sunday. Your head hurts. Your group has somehow acquired one Leto-style Joker, a slave Leia and five Donald Trumps. Better take everyone to Sadie, where Golden Box’s Jeremy Fall holds Sunday brunch with a michelada-dispensing Volkswagen, a draft cocktail cart, DJs and breakfast tacos. It’s the only way out of this mess.
