The Weekender

Poolside Afternoons, More Loteria and Pre-March Madness

The weekend is a very special episode.

Thursday
New Happy Hour at the Standard
POOLSIDE

New Happy Hour at the Standard

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.

Friday
Loteria Grill #3 Soft-Opens
MOLE POBLANO

Loteria Grill #3 Soft-Opens

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.

Loteria Grill, 12050 Ventura Blvd (at Laurel Canyon), Studio City, 818-508-5300

Laker Girls at a Sports Bar
SWISH

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.

Tuesday
Very Special Episodes
POIGNANCY

Very Special Episodes

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.

Wednesday
March Madness at the Omni
HOOPS

March Madness at the Omni

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.

Now booking for March, Omni San Diego, 675 L St, San Diego, 619-231-6664
