Things to do for May 03, 2007

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

When boxing and Cinco de Mayo converge, a good weekend is made.

Thursday
Silver Lake Film Festival
THURSDAY NIGHT MUSIC AND FLICKS

Silver Lake Film Festival

It's the Sundance of the "neglected and rarely presented" indie flicks. Plus music, screening parties and hanging out with the directors of Little Miss Sunshine…forget Utah.

411: May 3-12, various venues, for schedule and tickets click here

Friday
LA Modernism Show Opening Gala
FRIDAY NIGHT FUNK

LA Modernism Show Opening Gala

Get a first look at all the mid-century goods (including rare vintage guitars, jukeboxes and speakers) before the public. Between your sure-to-be-impressive soliloquies on Eames and Saarinen, fill your mouth with the sponsored vodka, wine and food.

411: May 4, 6-9pm, $90 in advance, $100 at door, Santa Monica Civic Auditorium, 1855 Main St (at Pico), Santa Monica, for tickets click here

Saturday
Stone Fire Pizza Co.
SATURDAY NIGHT FIGHT FIESTA

Stone Fire Pizza Co.

For the Fifth, this new spot will offer $10 Mexican pizzas and half-price Mexican beers, tequila and margaritas—and the flat-screens will show De La Hoya vs. Mayweather, por supuesto.
411: May 5, 829 N. La Cienega Blvd (between Willoughby and Waring), West Hollywood, 310-659-8848

La Cantina
The recently opened Hollywood cantina is really serious about Cinco—margaritas are two-for-one, tacos are all-you-can-eat and two huge additional screens brought in for the boxing bonanza. With free tequila shots served every hour, we're not looking forward to Seis de Mayo.
411: May 5, 6541 Hollywood Blvd (at Schrader), Hollywood, 323-871-1363

Sunday
Penguin Secret Sale
SUNDAY STEALS

Penguin Secret Sale

Shoppers who say "Secret Sam" at checkout get an extra 30 percent off all sale merchandise, and 50 percent if it's a sweater or outerwear. Unfortunately they really do make you say the password.

411: Through May 7, Mon-Sat 10am-7pm, Sun noon-6pm, Original Penguin Store, 8215 Melrose Ave (between Harper and La Jolla), West Hollywood, 323-655-0401

Tuesday
Stoli Hotel
TUESDAY NIGHT CHECK-IN

Stoli Hotel

Stolichnaya vodka has created a temporary party "hotel" in Hollywood that will be home to a month-long rampage of decadent parties—and everyone getting their bottomless fill of Stoli.

411: May 3-19, 1555 Ivar Ave (between Selma and Sunset), Hollywood, for a schedule of events click here
THE DADDY HOOKUP: We have some tickets to the May 8 party with DJ AM and the May 15 party with the Sons of Hollywood. Tell us why you want 'em.
