The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

You've logged well over 20 hours of work. Take a weekend.

Thursday
Sissi, C'est Moi
THURSDAY EYE-POPPERS

Sissi, C'est Moi

Tehran-born artist Sissi Farassat knows how to get your attention—she completely surrounds the women in her large photographs with Swarovski crystals and other shiny goods. It's kind of like your life.

Opening reception Sept 6, 7-9pm, SCALO|GUYE Gallery, 302 N. Robertson Blvd (at Beverly), West Hollywood, 310-358-9396

Friday
Joan's on Third Reopens
FRIDAY SUPER-SIZE

Joan's on Third Reopens

The brunch institution just got brunchier: The mega-expansion you've been waiting for (along with all the other sidewalk dwellers clamoring for a table) is complete. Inside you'll find a new bakery section, more takeaway items, more seating and, hopefully, shorter lines.

Opens Sept 7, 8350 W. 3rd St (between Crescent Heights and La Cienega), West Hollywood, 323-655-2285

Saturday
Sound Affects
SATURDAY SONIC

Monday
Seven 'til Seven at Abode
MONDAY BARGAINS

Seven 'til Seven at Abode

Through the courtyard behind Tengu, this restaurant wants only to feed you Fried Oysters with Spicy Aioli and Flat Iron Steak on a Crispy Rice Crostini—oh, and maybe a martini. Everything's seven bucks.
