National Lampoon’s Weekend

Wednesday
These Two Places Have Your Party’s Back
WORLD OF BAR CRAFT

These Two Places Have Your Party’s Back

There’s that big winter bonfire thing happening at Dockweiler Beach. So swing by Grand Central Market’s new cocktail supply store, Courage and Craft, beforehand for some good beers and weird bitters. Then, hit Culver City’s new Picnic LA to get the gang some Vietnamese pots de crème. You know, the gang.

Thursday
Home Alone, Not Being Left Alone
HIGHWAY TO KEVIN

Home Alone, Not Being Left Alone

Home Alone. Great flick. The only thing missing is a staged musical number with talented singers and dancers. If you’ve ever entertained that thought, you’ll need to know about The Unauthorized Musical Parody of Home Alone, which is playing this weekend. Also, your thoughts should get out more often.

Friday
Something for Them. Everything for You.
NORTHERN EXPOSURE

Something for Them. Everything for You.

Time to drive a stake through the heart of your gift list. Enter: Northern Grade. Yes, that one marketplace of handsome, American-made everything is popping up in Downtown this weekend with anything from Aloha Sunday chinos to Freenote shirts to Churchkey beer. The beer is for you.

Saturday
It’s Booze’s Birthday
KEEPING IT REPEAL

It’s Booze’s Birthday

As a student of history, you feel a certain obligation to visit Townhouse and its Del Monte Speakeasy this Saturday to celebrate Repeal Day and the bars’ 100-year anniversaries. You’ll have food from Hatchet Hall, drinks with old-timey prices and coffee cocktails from Menotti’s. So... a full syllabus.

Dec 5, noon-midnight, no cover, Repeal Day at Townhouse, 52 Windward Ave, Venice, 310-392-4040

So Many Courses in Encino
SCRATCH THAT

So Many Courses in Encino

It’s hard to find good sweetbread and waffles in the Valley. Except not, because Scratch Bar & Kitchen just opened its server-free restaurant in Encino. So bring a date to the chef’s counter and tackle the 24-course tasting menu there. Maybe make sure it’s, like, a 16th date.
