Over in Culver City's most amazing Japanese-maid café/art-gallery hybrid, you've downed sake served by girls in uniform, and you've committed unspeakable acts in the Porta-Party.
And now, well…it's time to break out your superhero costume. (Or one of them, anyway.) Friday night marks the kickoff of a new art show called Crusaders & Haters: Superheroes and Villains in American Pop Culture—and the gallery is throwing a suitably outlandish blowout.
Curated by the world's foremost authority on all things superhero-related—an actor from Mean Girls—the show explores everything from character studies of the Joker to what would happen if Batman were actually Beethoven. (Answer: he'd be Bathoven.)
To supplement all this profundity, there's a photo booth, a DJ and some allegedly superhero-themed snacks. There'll also be an epic costume contest that's sure to draw a crowd far removed from your usual Friday-night get-togethers.
Although that maid costume usually makes an appearance.
