Takes one to weekend one.

Wednesday
West Coast Whiskey, Meet New York Pizza
MAKES CENTS

West Coast Whiskey, Meet New York Pizza

Finally, there’s a place where West Coast whiskey can coexist with New York pizza. It’s called the Nickel Bar, and it opens tonight in West LA’s former Il Grano space. Try it now. Before pizza and whiskey fall hopelessly in love and start looking at houses together in Calabasas.

Opens Aug 3, The Nickel Bar, 11363 Santa Monica Blvd, West LA, 310-231-0239

Thursday
Frozen Foie Gras and Flaming Mezcal: Happening
DINNER SANCTUM

Frozen Foie Gras and Flaming Mezcal: Happening

Alert: Alma has indefinitely taken over the Standard, Hollywood. Be advised that this means an increased likelihood of frozen foie gras with smoked maple and coffee granola in your life. Then there’s tonight’s situation where Winsome begins serving dinner over flaming mezcal drinks and roasted branzino. You’ve been warned.

Friday
You Dance Here. This Place Is for Dancing.
ORA FIXATION

You Dance Here. This Place Is for Dancing.

Hollywood’s got a dressed-up new center of debauchery called Ora operating in the old home of Premiere Supper Club. It involves dancing under lasers and drinking under Spanish arches. So, a two out of two on your Hollywood club checklist.

Now open Fri-Sat, 10pm-2am, Ora, 1710 N Las Palmas Ave, Hollywood, 323-745-0019

Saturday
You, Your Mai Tai and That 180-Degree View
YAMA’S FAMILY

You, Your Mai Tai and That 180-Degree View

Some big changes just went down concerning Yamashiro’s ownership, with renovations expected. Until then, you’ll just enjoy 180-degree views from its Pagoda Bar and a new happy hour, where $7 pistachio salmon sushi and mai tais using a 100-year-old recipe are served. With age come great mai tais.

Sunday
Tiny Art in a Big Train Station
PEEP SHOW

Tiny Art in a Big Train Station

And now, a trust exercise. There are several peepholes in Union Station we’re going to ask you to look into. Really. Because seven artists have created tiny little worlds behind them in an exhibit that only one person can view at a time. And that person should be you.

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
