The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

Could be your best weekend ever—so far.

Thursday
Barneys Warehouse Sale
THURSDAY AIR SUPPLY

Barneys Warehouse Sale

It's an airplane hangar filled with Giorgio Armani, Dolce & Gabbana and Jil Sander at 50-75% off. There are no dressing rooms, though, so wear the good underwear (or at least the underwear).

Aug 9-19, Barker Hanger, 3021 Airport Ave (at Santa Monica Air Center), Santa Monica, 310-777-5700, barneys.com

Friday
Rush Hour Relief at West
FRIDAY NON-DRIVING

Rush Hour Relief at West

Atop the Hotel Angeleno (that weird tubular building where Sunset meets the 405) is your new favorite happy hour. Soak up the view, enjoy half-price drinks, crunch on free Cajun chips and take pleasure in the fact you're not stuck in traffic.

Mon-Fri 4-7pm, West at the Hotel Angeleno, 170 N. Church Ln (at Sunset), West LA, 310-481-7878

Friday
Sgt. Pepper's at 40...a Beatles Celebration
FRIDAY LONELY HEARTS

Sgt. Pepper's at 40...a Beatles Celebration

Bring a basket for this psychedelic two-day anniversary party in which Cheap Trick, Aimee Mann and others perform the seminal Beatles album in its entirety 40 years after it was dreamed up. With enough wine, Mann looks like Ringo.

411: Aug 10-11, 8:30pm, Hollywood Bowl, 2301 N. Highland Ave (N. of Franklin), Hollywood, 323-850-2000, for tickets click here

Friday
V-Lounge Opens
FRIDAY DINE AND DANCE

V-Lounge Opens

The large dance floor at V-Lounge, soft opening tomorrow in the former Lush location, is a rare Westside locale to show off your moves. Or just grab a booth and try tapas from former Top Chef contender Brian Hill.

Saturday
Literartistry Opening Reception
SATURDAY GET LIT

Literartistry Opening Reception

This group show is filled with works inspired by books like Zodiac and The Catcher in the Rye, both of which can be checked out at the functional library upstairs, in case you need a break from pontificating on Holden Caulfield at the full open bar.

411: Aug 11, 7-10pm, exhibit runs through Sept 1, Corey Helford Gallery, 8522 Washington Blvd (W. of La Cienega), Culver City, 310-287-2340

Shanghai Uncorked at Red Pearl Kitchen
TUESDAY TASTING

Shanghai Uncorked at Red Pearl Kitchen

On Tuesday, this eye-popping Melrose restaurant offers you passed appetizers and samplings of 20 wines and sakes. If you don't try the Pure Evil Chardonnay, you're doing yourself a disservice.
