Tiki Blowout, Pig Roast and a French Happy Hour
The weekend taught you to change a tire.

If you're just in the mood for some good DJ grooves courtesy of a mind-melting film director, Michel Gondry is among the guest spinners at this party in the hotel's Purple Lounge. There's no cover, but we're gonna go out on a limb and predict you might see some skinny jeans.
The LA institution is going whole hog for its 20th-birthday blowout—actually, whole pig is more like it. Saturday's monster pig-roast will involve Lobster & Corn Cob Salad, Ice Pops and a whole lot of wine.
