The stripping-in-public pandemonium is back—but this year you don't have to schlep to the Santa Monica airport to get new clothes at up to 75 percent off. If you work downtown, you can drop your drawers (and get some new ones) on your lunch break.
Things to do for August 13, 2009
Public Stripping, Junket Wine and Asian Hot Dogs
The weekend will take one in every color.
Tonight's your chance to hit Culver City's booziest hunting lodge—with a side of Asian hot dogs. The Brooklyn wiener slingers known as Asiadog will be in-house for the evening, and they brought their kimchi and seaweed flakes. We don't know why, nor could we imagine why not.
Forty years to the day since Woodstock kicked off, four photographers offer stirring photographic proof that they were actually there. Plus, they will all be present to share their favorite Hendrix stories with you, and they've brought a friend by the name of Jack Daniel to take care of the bar.
Sometimes at the end of a long weekend, you just need to put on somebody else's shoes and crash some stuff. Goes without saying that beer factors in. From now on, Sunday nights at Lucky Strike add $13 pitchers and beer pong to the mix.
If you need a little extra incentive to dodge all the Four Seasons press junkets and sneak up to Cabana, the just-renovated poolside restaurant, bottles of wine are now half-price during your next midweek dinner. (Yes, every bottle.) Gets you every time.
