Revamped Bloody Marys, $3 Margaritas and a Penthouse Sale

The weekend is on the rocks with salt.

Thursday
1 New Perk
PERKS

1 New Perk

This week, Perks has got you covered from head to toe—but especially toe, since we're talking free Kenneth Cole flip-flops.

Eternal Happy Hour at El Bar
TEQUILA

Eternal Happy Hour at El Bar

Turns out the owner of The Woods and The Fifth had another drink up his sleeve for the Cahuenga hideaway El Bar. When life handed him a recession, he made a three-dollar margarita—now available anytime, open to close.

3256 Cahuenga Blvd (at Bennett), Universal City, 323-851-5111

Friday
Bite While It's Light at STK
DROP-IN

Bite While It's Light at STK

Sometimes you just need a steak dinner without all the…steak. Drop-in tables in the lounge and on the patio are now available Sunday through Friday for $15 meals like sliders, short ribs or a 6-ounce skirt steak with a salad. It's all about balance.

Sun-Fri, 6-8pm, 755 N. La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-659-3535

Saturday
Hot Dog Death March
BUNS IN THE OVEN

Hot Dog Death March

One day. Three hot-dog institutions. And the occasional beefy haiku. A roving band of gastronomes will be hitting Pink's, Oki-Dog and Skooby's in one gut-busting afternoon this weekend, and they've got costumes, trivia and prizes for the best on-point poetry. Now what rhymes with mustard…

June 13, 3pm, see website for details

Sunday
New Bloody Marys at Bigfoot Lodge
ABOUT BLOODY TIME

New Bloody Marys at Bigfoot Lodge

Over in Los Feliz, a Bloody Mary is…malleable. Starting now, your Sunday hangover cure comes in several innovative new forms, from miniature (a shot) to the Bloody Mario, a tasty concoction that uses house-infused basil-garlic vodka and does not, for better or worse, have anything to do with a new video game.

Sundays, 2-6pm, 3172 Los Feliz Blvd, Los Feliz, 323-662-9227

LoftSEVEN Sample Sale
ROOFTOP

LoftSEVEN Sample Sale

At Downtown's latest party penthouse, you'll find a different kind of party Sunday with a completely open bar and steep discounts on Spindle & Canister cardigans, swank Esquivel shoes and Wayne Hadly button-downs. And if you haven't yet stepped into the Jacuzzi for 20, you definitely should. Just take off the new shoes first.

June 14, 11am-4pm, 219 W. 7th St, Penthouse, Downtown, 213-489-2259, RSVP here
