You could be working right now. Or you could be plotting your escape to the pool—because the Standard has just launched a new alfresco happy hour, complete with half-off drinks and appetizers.

Poolside Afternoons, More Loteria and Pre-March Madness
The weekend is a very special episode.
If Loteria Grill's famous Mexican food were in every neighborhood, the world would be a better place. As of this week, at least the Valley is a better place—the Studio City outpost is set to soft-open to the public tomorrow.
Laker Girls at a Sports Bar
Miracle Mile's newest sports bar is drawing up a full-court press for its grand-opening party—there'll be an open bar for the first hour, a dance floor later, raffles, live Lakers (Jordan Farmar is your host) and, most importantly, live Laker Girls. Welcome to the neighborhood.
Sometimes, while you were growing up, your favorite sitcoms got weirdly serious. Real issues were tackled, lovable characters got into real danger and the laugh track took a break. This Tuesday, over on Fairfax, they'll be replaying six of the best. Should be more exciting than Jessie Spano all hopped up on pills.
You're probably already working on your preliminary brackets, so you should know that the Omni San Diego has a hoops package next month that includes Wheaties, Hoosiers and a 25%-off room. Guess the winning team by March 22 (hint: it won't be Iona) and you'll get a free room for your next visit.
