Remember the weekend.

Thursday

THURSDAY CONDIMENT

Sunset Hour at Ketchup

The resto's new happy hour adds jovialness with $6 martini specials and $8 Kobe sliders—which should make the eye-candy crowd get even candy-er.

Sunday
Red Sun BBQ Garden at Katana

Red Sun BBQ Garden at Katana

The popular Sunset Strip patio wingding returns for the summer this weekend. Expect a KCRW DJ, sushi, miso-glazed popcorn shrimp tempura and, for her, watermelon margaritas.

Friday

FRIDAY 90212

Poolside Drinks at Beverly Wilshire

You've lunched with Spielberg at the BevWil's Cut—but the hotel could have a new hotspot. Starting this weekend, tapas and pitchers of sangria and sangria blanc will be served by the pool.

411: May 25-27, 5-8pm, then Thurs-Sat 5-8pm, Beverly Wilshire Hotel, 9500 Wilshire Blvd (at Rodeo), Beverly Hills, 310-275-5200

Monday

MONDAY BARBECUE

Cookout at Dockweiler State Beach

One of the few local beaches with onsite cookout areas, Dockweiler just completed a $14 million renovation. Get there early (like, 7 a.m.) for a shot at one of 30 fire pits, then grill your heart out.

411: May 28, 6am-10pm, Dockweiler State Beach, 12501 Vista Del Mar, Playa Del Rey, 310-305-9546

Saturday
Pravda
SATURDAY SOVIET SHAKEUP

Pravda

This late-night Disney Hall gathering has DJs, artists and a 10-piece Theremin Orchestra. It's officially about deconstructing Stalinism, but unofficially it's all about the dance party in BP Hall.
