Things to do for May 28, 2009

The Weekender

Breakfast Pizza, Sunset Wine and Infinite Tequila

The weekend is three days at heart.

Thursday
Barack Obama: The Freshman at M+B
OCCIDENTAL WITNESS

Barack Obama: The Freshman at M+B

Last night, President Obama breezed through Beverly Hills—tonight, Occidental College freshman Barry is all over the walls of M+B Gallery. Back in 1980, when photographer Lisa Jack asked if she could shoot the now-prez, she was told…yes you can.

Opening reception 6-9pm, 612 N. Almont Dr, West Hollywood, 310-550-0050

Summer Sale at South Willard
SALE-ING

Summer Sale at South Willard

Ah, summer. The beach, the alfresco drinks…the 30 percent discounts on Band of Outsiders and Common Projects. (Raf Simons and Patrik Ervell are marked off by a full 40.) And hey, you're probably wearing 30 to 40 percent less in the warmer weather anyway.

Ongoing, 8038 W. Third St, 323-653-6153 and online

Friday
Wine Tasting in the Park
GRAPE ESCAPE

Wine Tasting in the Park

Silver Lake Wine often takes your wine-soakedness to exciting new places—like the Hollyhock House and Gardens at Barnsdall Park, where Friday-night tastings kick off tomorrow. To pair with the four wines poured, the Coolhaus truck will sling architecturally themed ice-cream sandwiches. Mmm… Mintimalism…

May 29, 5:30-7:30pm, 4800 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, tickets here

Sunday
Hangover Brunch by the Pool
POOLSIDE

Hangover Brunch by the Pool

Saturday night went well. Too well. Enter the new hangover brunch in the Backyard at the W—huevos rancheros arrive with a shot of tequila, and the All-in-One Breakfast Pizza (sausage, egg, cheddar, home fries, sour cream, chives) comes with a lager. A quick swim should complete the restoration…after 30 minutes, of course.

Sundays, 11am-3pm, 930 Hilgard Ave, Westwood, 310-443-8218

Wednesday
Tequila Tasting at Malo
SHOTS

Tequila Tasting at Malo

Come Wednesday, $15 will get you access to a spread of tequilas to sample (Casa Noble and DeLeón among them), and some gratis Malo tacos to wash it all down. You'll probably need a lot of tacos—not that that's a bad thing.

June 3, 7-10pm, 4326 W. Sunset Blvd, Silver Lake, 323-664-1011, tickets here
