Wednesday
Aussie Burgers With Beach-Adjacent Beers
RUBY WEDNESDAY

Aussie Burgers With Beach-Adjacent Beers

Santa Monica's Little Ruby starts its happy hour tonight. So now you can chase your beach trips with 2.5 hours of Bondi burgers, discounted drafts, wine, pasta and spicy Italian sausage. Guess mid-winter heat waves do have their advantages.

Thursday
All Rihanna, All Night
RIH-ANIMATOR

All Rihanna, All Night

Tomorrow night, you're taking friends to an all-Rihanna dance party at Los Globos. Four DJs will rule the night, playing cuts, remixes and associated tracks from the dancehall diva. Everyone will be powerless to resist. Where do you find these things?

Saturday
One Massive Porsche Retrospective, Coming Right Up
AUTO FOCUS

One Massive Porsche Retrospective, Coming Right Up

You're going to a museum this weekend, just to admire Porsches. The Petersen is going to be stuffed full of the German automaker's most iconic cars, both from the track and notable collections. You may need to watch your speed on the way home.

Sunday
You Will Not Starve During the Super Bowl
SUPER HERO

You Will Not Starve During the Super Bowl

Let’s review Sunday's play: You're dropping by Josiah Citrin's Charcoal to grab a package with smoked lamb ribs, grilled wings and coal-roasted shishitos for home. Or you're headed to the Hideout by STK for a big outdoor tailgate with frozen Moscow mules, short rib grilled cheese and a halftime show. Go long.

Tuesday
One Enchanted Evening at Carondelet House
CARTE BLANCHE

One Enchanted Evening at Carondelet House

Just a few things you'll  find at Nuit Blanche on Tuesday and V-Day:

1) A five-course, black-tie dinner.
2) An Italian-inspired villa.
3) Unlimited open bar.
4) Uninhibited dancers and performers.
5) Inner peace. Maybe. Hopefully.
