The Weekender

Tax Dodging, Infinite Sushi and Happy Hour, 90210

The weekend just bid on Miramax.

Thursday
1 New Perk
PERK

1 New Perk

This week's perk puts you on a private jet to Aspen, with a hotel room, a new wardrobe and four days of feasting waiting for you at the other end. All you need is a little luck—and a ski vest wouldn't hurt.

Happy Hour, Beverly Hills-Style
DRINKING, 90210

Happy Hour, Beverly Hills-Style

Now that bar 210 has settled in, they're unleashing a happy hour starting at 7pm—late enough you can actually make it after work. Beers are $5, drinks are $7, and all food, from Pork Belly Sliders to Salty Peewee Potatoes with Chlorophyll Mayo, is half-off. ZIP code remains the same.

Thu-Fri, 7-9pm, starts today, bar 210, 9876 Wilshire Blvd, Beverly Hills, 310-887-6000

Bike Night at the Hammer
OFF THE CHAIN

Bike Night at the Hammer

Roll into the Hammer's bike valet early tonight, so you'll have time to load up on free food before the screening of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure. There's a top-secret surprise guest involved—whose last name we are hoping is Reubens.

Apr 8, 7pm, no cost, Hammer, 10899 Wilshire Blvd, Westwood, 310-443-7000

B52 Nightclub Soft-Opens
DANCING

B52 Nightclub Soft-Opens

In the spot formerly (and briefly) known as 8Hill, you'll now find one of Downtown's rare dance floors in a club rechristened as B52, complete with stiff, no-fuss drinks and a bank vault-turned-Moroccan drinking hideaway. Hey, just like your bank.

Soft-opens tonight, B52, 801 S Hill St (at Eighth), Downtown, 213-489-4342

Friday
All-You-Can-Eat Sushi at Zip Fusion
CHOPSTICKS

All-You-Can-Eat Sushi at Zip Fusion

To celebrate eight great years of Zip Fusion, you'll want a seat at the sushi bar—where for the rest of the month, $14.95 will get you all you can eat. You have to summon some alcohol to qualify for the deal, but we don't anticipate that being a problem.

Throughout April, Zip Fusion, 744 E Third St (east of Alameda), Downtown, 213-680-3770

Saturday
Tax-Free Day on Montana Avenue
SHOPPING

Tax-Free Day on Montana Avenue

More than 60 stores on Montana—including Blue Jeans Bar and Planet Blue—are banding together for one glorious day of tax-free shopping. Note on the term tax-free: this means no sales tax on your new denim, but you still have to pay your income taxes by April 15.
