Things to do for April 13, 2016

The Weekender

Beethoven Meets Yeezus, Kaftan Dancing and Coffee with Dogs

The weekend wins for Vin.

Wednesday
It’s a Dog Café. With Real Dogs and Everything.
DOG DAY AFTERNOON

It’s a Dog Café. With Real Dogs and Everything.

Man’s best friend: coffee. Or dogs. Hard to choose. Anyway, you won’t need to at the Dog Cafe, a new Silver Lake place serving fair-trade coffee while you hang out petting rescue dogs and consider taking one home. Resistance is futile.

Thursday
Grab a Date. Come Here. Breed Success.
GUILDY PLEASURE

Grab a Date. Come Here. Breed Success.

Someone just went and turned SAG’s former headquarters into a new restaurant and wine bar called the Guild. Come for dinner and find New Zealand lamb chops, bone marrow with beef tongue and a nice pinot. Presumably for less than what your agent takes.

Friday
The New Desert Oasis You Seek
SPRINGS FORWARD

The New Desert Oasis You Seek

The Arrive hotel just opened in Palm Springs with a courtyard pool, cabanas and a huge hot tub for you. There’s also a restaurant with breakfast cocktails and Hawaiian bread french toast. If only you had a reason to be in Palm Springs this weekend.

Now open, Arrive, 1551 N Palm Canyon Dr, Palm Springs, 760-507-1650

Saturday
Dance Like No One’s Wearing Pants
ROBE TROTTING

Dance Like No One’s Wearing Pants

Saturday afternoon. You’re by the pool on the Ace’s roof, listening to disco from around the world. Dancers swirl around you, their spinning hems a blur of vintage fabric. You look around and find that you’re all wearing kaftans. So you begin dancing, too. And... scene.

Kanye and Beethoven. It Kinda Makes Sense.
ROLL OVER, BEETHOVEN

Kanye and Beethoven. It Kinda Makes Sense.

Kanye is the Beethoven of 2016. At least according to Kanye. Anyway, on Saturday, you’ll have the chance to watch a live orchestra play selections from the Yeezus album intermingled with the great works of Beethoven. Play “Für Elise.” Play “Für Elise.”
