A One-Night Cocktail Pop-Up That Could Scar You Permanently

Oh, and a Sunday With Mom

Thursday
Have a Drink. The Tattoo Is Optional.
SPECIAL INTEREST

Have a Drink. The Tattoo Is Optional.

A forthcoming cocktail concept called Drink Special makes its one-night debut on Thursday. Expect libations like a cacao-infused vodka with Darjeeling, fig bitters and Sundip Pakistani syrup. And a guy named Popeye giving people $15 custom tattoos. So you’ll remember when someone asks what you did this weekend.

May 11, 8pm, no cover, ETA, 5630 N Figueroa St, Highland Park, 323-274-4755

Friday
“Looking Sharp.” That’s What They’ll Say.
REID IT AND WEEP

“Looking Sharp.” That’s What They’ll Say.

Starting Friday, Billy Reid will have its handsome collection of button-downs, shorts and jeans at Culver City’s Magasin for the month. They’re even going full made-to-measure Friday and Saturday. Meanwhile, Stag Venice has filled its loft with Rogue Territory’s fetching denim. They did this just for your attention.

May 12-June 12, Billy Reid at Magasin, 8810 Washington Blvd, ste 101, Culver City, 213-458-8424; Through May 31, Rogue Territory at Stag, 1338 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 310-450-1991

The Petersen Puts on Its Party Pants
DARK MATTER

The Petersen Puts on Its Party Pants

The Petersen has something to prove: that it can stay open after-hours on Friday like other cool museums. That it can have a DJ and drinks move the crowd. And that it isn’t afraid to open its underground vault for explorations of some good-looking Italians. Cars, of course.

Saturday
A New Arena of Freshly Baked Breakfast-ery
MODERN FAMILY

A New Arena of Freshly Baked Breakfast-ery

Friends & Family. That’s East Hollywood’s new spot where some Campanile vets have freshly baked breads, Danishes, pies and cakes at the ready anytime you may need them. Plus cold beer and hot sandwiches at lunch. You have to pay, but still, it’s nice of them.

Sunday
Do It for Mom
MA FAIR LADY

Do It for Mom

Sunday with mom: A four-course brunch with lobster rolls, roast beef popovers, mimosas and potential Curtis Stone views at Gwen.
Sunday without mom: A booze-forward afternoon screening of Mommie Dearest in the Ace’s gorgeous theater.

What she doesn’t know won’t hurt her.

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