Put the weekend in, coach.

Your Sand Dab Sandwiches Are Served
LEONA IN WINTERTIME

Your Sand Dab Sandwiches Are Served

Leona just began serving lunch. You know, for people who might like taking in the sea breeze while eating sand dab sandwiches, bulgogi chicken wings and a burger inspired by French onion soup. In case you know anyone or whatever.

Tue-Fri, 11am-2pm, Leona, 123 Washington Blvd, Venice, 310-822-5379

Friday
Two New Places to Lunch, and Lunch Hard
THE QUICK AND THE FED

Two New Places to Lunch, and Lunch Hard

It’s afternoon. There are difficult decisions to make. For instance, are you hitting Bruce Kalman’s 16-seat Knead at Grand Central Market for porchetta dips and handmade duck agnolotti? Or will you do Chinatown’s Amboy for Filipino pork belly and steak from Eggslut’s founder? Hush. Don’t answer.

No Way This Doesn’t Get Weird
OVERNIGHT AT THE MUSEUM

No Way This Doesn’t Get Weird

Expect an after-hours pageant of multisensory art at the Music Center on Friday. Come after midnight when they’ll take walk-ins. Then you can check out DJs, pillow screen printing, a shadow puppet cityscape, light and sound installations, and something called “furniture music.” Otherwise, you’ll probably experience none of that.

Saturday
All the Neon, None of the Vegas
KINGS OF NEON

All the Neon, None of the Vegas

The Museum of Neon is having a big grand-opening party on Saturday. There’ll be an open bar, desserts and multiple live bands. Oh, and massive glowing signs shaped like hats and hardware and words. Presumably.

Sunday
Nominee Catch-Up Time
ORIGINAL CINEMA

Nominee Catch-Up Time

You can’t fight the unrelenting sense that Anomalisa would go better with a glass of wine or cold beer from the concession stand. So don’t. Just go see it at Laemmle’s cool-looking new Monica Arts Complex and try this bold experiment out for yourself.
