The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend is the new weekday.

Thursday
Q-Tip at the Green Door
THURSDAY THUMPING

Q-Tip at the Green Door

You know all about this lush Hollywood hideaway, even if you claim ignorance about the salacious origins of its name. You might also want to know that Q-Tip will show up on the turntables around midnight tonight.

411: Green Door, 1439 Ivar Ave (between Fountain and Sunset), Hollywood, 323-463-0008

Thursday
Have Faith in LA
THURSDAY THREADS

Have Faith in LA

By the time the real Fashion Week starts, you'll already be tuckered out from blowouts like this. The three-day extravaganza features designers you've actually heard of (Louis Verdad, Jeffrey "Project Runway" Sebelia) in an old church turned party palace.

Friday
Point Break Live!
FRIDAY SURFBOARDS

Point Break Live!

Sometimes you want highbrow theater—and sometimes you want a shot at playing an FBI agent turned undercover surfer. If you're randomly chosen from the audience, you'll have cue cards to help you recapture the subtle nuances of Keanu Reeves' original screen portrayal.

411: Fridays and Saturdays, 8pm, $20, Charlie O's at the Alexandria Hotel, 501 S. Spring St (at 5th), Downtown, 213-268-2906

Saturday
Art Crawl X
SATURDAY PONTIFICATING

Art Crawl X

Among the 30-plus galleries pitching in for the weekend, you'll want to check out Found Gallery for Keith Perelli's ghostly post-Katrina paintings and Gallery O for Brian Marrier's works. Marrier utilizes naturalistic elements like grass, dirt and the occasional leaf-blower.

411: Kickoff party Oct 11, EchoPlex, doors 7pm, party 8pm, entrance in alley at 1154 Glendale Blvd (at Sunset), Echo Park, 213-413-8200; Art Crawl X, Oct 12-14 at participating Eastside galleries

Sunday
Dali: Painting & Film
SUNDAY SCREENS

Dali: Painting & Film

As your artistic analyses take you nearer to Hollywood, you can ponder the deep and insufficiently explored connection between Salvador Dali and the film industry. He collaborated with Walt Disney, Alfred Hitchcock, Luis Bunuel—and, quite possibly, Kevin Bacon.

411: Oct 14-Jan 6, $12-$20, LACMA, 5905 Wilshire Blvd (between Fairfax and Curson), Miracle Mile, 323-857-6000, purchase tickets here
