Things to do for September 20, 2007

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

You'll need a sweater. And a weekend.

Thursday
Rodan vs Griffith Party
THURSDAY THREADS

Rodan vs Griffith Party

You've always thought that new clothes go better with free margaritas, tacos and a house band. While investigating the fall goods with drink in hand, you shall ponder the deep spiritual connection clearly shared between you, Rodan and Griffith.

Sept 20, 6-10pm, Rodan vs. Griffith, 8207 W. 3rd St (between Crescent Heights and Sweetzer), West Hollywood, 323-951-9220

Saturday
The Hotel Tonic
SATURDAY YESTERYEAR

The Hotel Tonic

You weren't alive in the '40s, but you like to imagine they went something like this. Your ticket gets you an evening of period-specific vaudeville, artistry, scenery and (courtesy of the post-show open bar) a fair amount of revelry. Also, fire-dancers.

Sept 22, 7pm, $25, $50 VIP, The Barnsdall Theater and Art Park, 4800 Hollywood Blvd (between Normandie and Vermont), Hollywood, 310-390-8635

Saturday
Uptown Underground
SATURDAY SLO-MO

Uptown Underground

At this alfresco affair, KCRW's Jason Bentley provides the soundtrack to a gigantic video installation of famous dancers moving...very...slowly. Your moves will likely have a bit more gusto.

Sept 22, 10pm-midnight, Music Center Plaza, 135 N. Grand Ave (between 1st and Temple), Downtown

Sunday
Hyperreal Art Reception
SUNDAY SEASIDE

Hyperreal Art Reception

As a patron of the arts, you know that the best works aren't always found propped up in a gallery. Which is why the occasional group multimedia show at a private residence sounds so appealing. Well, that and the rum by the beach.

Sept 22-23, 3-9pm, 18042 Coastline Dr (at the PCH), Malibu, RSVP at 310-923-0340

Sunday
Royal Claytons First Anniversary
SUNDAY BIRTHDAY

Royal Claytons First Anniversary

Like a baby who's outgrown his onesies, the one-year-old restaurant and bar celebrates its birthday by shedding its faux-industrial environs to fully embrace a British pub vibe (once limited to the Sunday Soul Sessions) seven days a week. This means a larger beer menu, of course.

Royal Claytons, 1855 Industrial St (at Mateo), Downtown, 213-622-0512
