Things to do for September 28, 2016

Patina’s Got a New Restaurant

So There’s That. There’s Also Gratis Ice Cream and the Rarest of Beers.

By Hadley Tomicki

Go weekend, it’s your birthday.

Wednesday
It’s Basically an Estate Sale for Beer
YOU’VE GOT ALE

It’s Basically an Estate Sale for Beer

Library Alehouse’s cicerone has some incredibly rare beers this week. He’s clearing out the beer vaults and offering you 50% off vintage ales like the Bruery’s barrel-aged sour collaboration with Cigar City and a 750 mL cherry-fermented sour from Belgium. That’s gotta pair well with a burger.

Thursday
Gratis Ice Cream. You Need This Right Now.
ICE PRINCIPALS

Gratis Ice Cream. You Need This Right Now.

Gresescent Ice Cream did their homework. They knew LA wasn’t going to be torturously hot until October drew near. So they’ll grand-open in Downtown tomorrow with gratis scoops of flavors like blackberry mint mojito and grilled pineapple topped with bourbon caramel. And they had a feeling you’d appreciate that.

Friday
Charlie Chaplin Gets a New Soundtrack
STOP THE SILENCE

Charlie Chaplin Gets a New Soundtrack

Now you can watch the films of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton with contemporary soundtracks played by DJs, guitarists and bands from today. That’s the idea behind Downtown’s new UnSilent Cinema. Will it work? There’s a happy hour beforehand, so of course it will work.

Sep 29-30, happy hour 5:30pm, screening 8pm, no cover, UnSilent Cinema at Fig at 7th, 735 S Figueroa St, Downtown, 213-955-7170

Saturday
Where Fried-Chicken-and-Beignets Bloom
GARDEN STATE

Where Fried-Chicken-and-Beignets Bloom

You’ve done Descanso Gardens. Smelled the roses. Admired the oaks. But you’re yet to appreciate the fried-chicken-and-beignets and cheeseburgers. Those appear Saturday, when Joachim Splichal opens his new place, Maple, starting with brunch. The fried chicken might even beat the roses.

Sunday
A Legendary Porchetta Rides Again
FUNKE TOWN

A Legendary Porchetta Rides Again

You’ve been missing Evan Funke’s porchetta. Even Evan Funke missed Evan Funke’s porchetta. So he’ll pop up this Sunday with Slow Rise Pizza at Smorgasburg to unleash a pizza-influenced twist on the porky sandwiches everyone holds so dear. Your pained, porchetta-less cries have been heard.

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