The Weekender

Saigon Nachos, Team Conan and Beer for Lunch

The weekend is up for best supporting weekend.

Thursday
New Happy Hour at East
COMPASS

New Happy Hour at East

Whatever ails you today, a round of cocktails and some Saigon Nachos should be the cure. At East's new 5-6-7-8 happy hour in their firelit lounge, the valet is $5, the drinks are $6, the food is $7, and it all ends at 8pm.

Tue-Fri, 5-8pm, East, 6611 Hollywood Blvd (east of Cherokee), 323-462-3278

UD HOOKUP: Mention UD when ordering two happy hour cocktails, and they'll arrive with a gratis order of Shishito Peppers.

Conan's Staffers Emerge
TONIGHT'S SHOW

Conan's Staffers Emerge

If you're wondering what Conan O'Brien's canned comedy team is up to lately, ask them yourself—this two-night stand-up stint is spearheaded by a former Tonight Show assistant producer, so you'll see a lot of the old gang on stage. And at the open bar. (They may need the gratis beer and wine even more than you do.)

Friday
Laurel Tavern Now Open for Lunch
NOONER

Laurel Tavern Now Open for Lunch

To please the clamoring hordes, there was only one thing left for this lively Studio City haven of beer, burgers and roasted marrow bones to do—start serving at noon. Some hordes prefer to clamor in daylight.

Now open noon-2am daily, Laurel Tavern, 11938 Ventura Blvd, 818-506-0777

Saturday
A Stylist-Filled Party in Culver City
ART

A Stylist-Filled Party in Culver City

So there's this artist named Kimberly Brooks who painted the industry's top stylists (including Mad Men costumer Janie Bryant and reality star Rachel Zoe). And now she's exhibiting those paintings. And we're thinking if you show up to toast her on Saturday, you'll probably run into a few celebs and/or models.

Monday
Piccolo Reboots
DOUBLE

Piccolo Reboots

One of Venice's most esteemed (and miniscule) beachside Italian restaurants has shuttered—but only for a few days, and only to basically double in size. The new incarnation debuts this Monday, offering the same menu but the exciting new ability to reserve tables.

Reopens Mar 1, Piccolo, 5 Dudley Ave (at Speedway), Venice, 310-314-3222
