Things to do for August 06, 2009

The Weekender

Circus Skin, Femmes Fatales and a Wine Margarita

The weekend can breathe fire.

Thursday
Femme Fatale at EM & Co
BEAUTY

Femme Fatale at EM & Co

Sometimes a man can have two great loves, but that doesn't mean they both can't harmoniously coexist under the same roof. Like at this exhibit opening, wherein Chris Callaway's photos of the female form (#1) share space with the open vodka bar (#2).

Opening reception Aug 6, 7-10pm, 7940 W. Third St, 323-782-8155, RSVP here

Design Your Own Shirt
SKETCHES

Design Your Own Shirt

If you haven't gotten around to launching your own clothing line, maybe you should start with a T-shirt. Brick and Mortar is now accepting design submissions, and the winner's will be manufactured and sold in the shop. (There's also a $250 booty.) Hint: no cursive logos of your name.

Deadline Aug 15, more info here, 310-652-6605

Friday
Gobi Mongolian BBQ Opens
BOWLS

Gobi Mongolian BBQ Opens

If you find most menus far too constricting, head to this new Mongolian BBQ spot in Silver Lake, fill up a bowl with vegetables, noodles, meat and sauce, then sit back as it gets stir-fried. We also recommend the house "margaritas," made with, what else, agave wine.

Now open, Gobi, 2827 W. Sunset Blvd (at Silver Lake Blvd), 213-989-0711

AVIA Long Beach Opens
ROOFTOP

AVIA Long Beach Opens

Because an arsenal of off-the-radar hotels can never be overstocked, we hereby present a new Long Beach debut. At the bottom, a wine bar—and far above, a nice-looking rooftop pool. What happens in between is nobody's business but yours.

Sunday
Cirque Berzerk Finale
CURTAINS CLOSE

Cirque Berzerk Finale

For Sunday's final performance of the Burning Man-birthed circus sensation, you should expect skin, oddity and a pretty solid after-party. And also, a 20 percent discount on tickets $45 and up. It's their way of saying thanks for the slightly disturbing memories.

Aug 9, 8pm, 1245 N. Spring St, tickets here, use code "CBCR8" at checkout
