Trejo’s Goes Full Restaurant in Hollywood

To Say Nothing of the Secret Club Serving You Dinner

By Hadley Tomicki

Weekend was a merry old soul and a merry old soul was weekend.

Wednesday
Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice...
THIEF IN THE NIGHT

Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice, Beetlejuice...

A degenerate ghoul threatening the lives of mild-mannered Americans. No, it’s not another presidential debate. It’s Beetlejuice, and it’s showing tonight at Horse Thief BBQ, which will screen Halloween films every Wednesday on its Downtown patio. So, a lot less scary.

Oct 12, 8pm, no cover, Horse Thief BBQ, 324 S Hill St, Downtown, 213-625-0341

Friday
More Shake Shack. More Danny Trejo.
GOING HOLLYWOOD

More Shake Shack. More Danny Trejo.

Shake Shack is now open in Hollywood for anybody who enjoys burgers and Rucker’s Pie–collaborative custards on huge Walk of Fame patios. And close by, Danny Trejo now has Trejo’s Cantina, a bulked-up version of his taco spot. Hope they’ll be friends.

The Haunted Hayride: Now with More Secret Society

Griffith Park’s Haunted Hayride is back. Just different. Now, there’s a Secret Society offering you two distinct paths to explore. And you’ll be required to leave your carriage to get inducted amid a maelstrom of horrors. Hay can’t protect you now.

A Not-Secret Sunday Dinner Series at a Secretive Club

The once covert club and restaurant known as No Name Fairfax will let you in now for dinner. And this Sunday, chef Jared Simons kicks off a monthly plant-based series, featuring dishes like smoked carrot tartare and Southern fried mushrooms. Still, it shall remain nameless.

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