The old Trader Vic's may be gone, but the famously strong Mai Tais and Scorpion Bowls live on. And to break in the hotel bar's swank new poolside locale, appetizers are free Thursdays from 5 to 7.
Things to do for May 10, 2007
The Weekend Starts Here
Your mom wants you to enjoy the weekend.
Your vocals deserve to be backed by an actual rock band. But if you'd rather play the role of VIP producer, a $50 wristband gets you access to the balcony's open bar.
Skirball kicks off its summer of free music with Open Door Orchestra, whose worldly members come and go (you know, like a globe-spanning Menudo…only good).
Before it moves into a downtown loft in June, Apartment 3 is kissing off the landlords with 25% off all men's new and vintage attire, free booze, gourmet food and the DJ from Mars Volta. So much for that security deposit.
Check out Dan "Flava" Flavin's collection of brightly lit neon installations, including re-creations of buzzing corridors once found in the Pacific Design Center. Should be illuminating.
This downtown tavern in the Toy Factory goes mega-British with UK food, soccer on the plasmas, pints on tap and London-based DJs. It's the perfect way to say cheers to Tony Blair.
