A Spelling Bee, but With More Drinking

You used to be all right at spelling bees as a kid. Then you got good at drinking. Tonight, you’ll merge these pastimes at the Slurring Bee, where each passing round of spelling comes with a shot for each contestant. This might have helped your verbal SATs.

Trejo’s Tacos Could Be Called Trejo’s Breakfast Burritos Now

Great Presidents’ Day you had back there. And going forward, your weeks will have chilaquile-laced breakfast burritos with jidori chicken, slow-cooked beef and tofu chorizo at Trejo’s Tacos. But seriously, you know how to Presidents’ Day.

Friday
The Lichtensteins Come Out at Night
TAKING YOUR LICHS

The Lichtensteins Come Out at Night

The Skirball is showing its quite-significant, quite-soon-to-be-disassembled Lichtenstein show on Friday night. Yes, night. When there’s alcohol and food trucks and DJs and well-dressed people crowding around the Lichtensteins saying, “Interesting.” And the sun is below the horizon for a bunch of hours.

Saturday
Congee and Bread. Notably Eminent Congee and Bread.
KING OF POP-UP

Congee and Bread. Notably Eminent Congee and Bread.

Saturday morning, you’ll find the Bay Area’s Manresa Bread providing pastries and bread alongside Jeremy Fox at Esthers. In the afternoon, you’ll experience Top Chef champ Mei Lin’s congee pop-up. Sunday morning, you’ll find Manresa working the Noto pop-up at Baroo. You’re free to do as you please Sunday afternoon.

Sunday
And the Cocktail Goes To...
TALENT SHOW

And the Cocktail Goes To...

The Oscars. Maybe you’ll watch at Paley with Halle Berry (that’s a mezcal/beet juice cocktail). Maybe you’ll fill out Tuck Room Tavern’s contest ballot before surveying it over dinner from Sherry Yard. Perhaps you’ll have Elton John’s arm over your shoulder somewhere else, launching into the crescendo of “Rocket Man.” Options are critical.

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