First, These Burgers. Then, the Beach.

Oh, and Then an Underground Cocktail Cave Far Below Downtown

By Hadley Tomicki

Wednesday
A Different Shade of KTown Barbecue
BOOGIE NIGHTS

A Different Shade of KTown Barbecue

Boogie McGee’s Bayou Smokehouse just plunked down in Koreatown to smoke Southern Mississippi-style pork and beef ribs, plus brisket and sausages. Presumably so you don’t have to.

Friday
Tsubaki’s Been Very, Very Good to Your Weekdays
HAPPY TOGETHER

Tsubaki’s Been Very, Very Good to Your Weekdays

Tsubaki’s new happy hour includes so much discounted Japanese Dodger-dogging, tonkatsu sandwich-eating, sake-sipping and five-dollar-draft-Asahi-quaffing that they had to go and make it 90 minutes. Otherwise, you wouldn’t have time for the quaffing.

Tues-Fri, 5:30-7:30pm, Tsubaki, 1356 Allison Ave, Echo Park, 213-900-4900

Saturday
Living With a Band Down by the River
ALPHA FROG

Living With a Band Down by the River

Frog Spot has this insane proposition for you: come hang out in its beer garden over the LA River every Saturday and listen to eclectic live music while the sunlight plays in your hair and you and your friends enjoy some pizza. The nerve of these people.

Saturdays, 5-8pm, no cover, Frog Spot, 2825 Benedict St, 323-223-0585

Wine Bars: Better With Cocktails
D’VINE WILL

Wine Bars: Better With Cocktails

You love showing friends D’Vine, Downtown’s incredible-looking underground wine cave. But next time you do it, you’ll settle in to try their new cocktail menu. A couple of Key Lime Jacks later and you’ll be ready for some wine.

Sunday
Beach-Adjacent Burgers. Can We Twist Your Arm?
THE BUN ALSO RISES

Beach-Adjacent Burgers. Can We Twist Your Arm?

Word has it that you’re hitting PCH this weekend in search of an empty beach. Good timing, you. Because now there’s Malibu Burger Co, serving decadently topped burgers with beer and wine, as well as salmon and quinoa burgers. Word has it you will date a vegan if necessary.

Now open, Malibu Burger Co, 23359 Pacific Coast Hwy, Ste 3874A, Malibu, 310-317-0153
