Jolie's Teenage Pics, Hollywood's New Bar and a Brunch Chauffeur

The weekend will see you now.

PERKS

1 New Perk

This week, Perks gets you up to 60% off your next hotel room via Tablet Hotels' new invite-only Private Sale service, along with a way to get a free room upgrade and some gratis champagne. (And no, it doesn't involve looting the minibar.)

Osteria La Buca Really Delivers
KNOCK KNOCK

Osteria La Buca Really Delivers

In conjunction with a new lunch menu, your Paramount-adjacent Italian go-to has introduced an admirable delivery system—basically, your Cioppino will be zipped over on a Zero electric motorcycle.

Now available, Osteria La Buca, 5210 Melrose Ave (west of Wilton), 323-462-1900

Friday
Angelina's Teenage Pics
JOLIE

Angelina's Teenage Pics

A trove of Hollywood-glam photography is going up for grabs this weekend, including works by Harry Langdon, who shot Angelina Jolie when she was just 15 years old... offering incontrovertible proof she skipped her awkward years entirely.

Sunday
Classic-Car Brunch at the Peninsula
CHAUFFEUR

Classic-Car Brunch at the Peninsula

The Peninsula Hotel's new brunch spread includes three courses (Peking Duck in Moo Shoo, Barramundi with Duck and Eggs), bottomless champagne... and a chauffeured post-meal sojourn around the city in a 1937 Packard Super 8 convertible, or one of the other restored cars from the Automobile Driving Museum. Go ahead, ask them to drive by your ex's place.

Wednesday
District Opens
DEBUT

District Opens

A bit later than expected, the much-anticipated neighbor to Mercantile is finally opening on Wednesday—think Salt-Roasted Lobster with Mustard Vermouth and rust-covered concrete walls. There's also a stately 36-foot bar, in case you get a 36-foot thirst...

Opens Mar 31, District, 6600 Sunset Blvd (west of Seward), 323-962-8200
