The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

You look like you could use a weekender.

Friday
Nobody Likes a Quitter
FRIDAY PURCHASE

Nobody Likes a Quitter

The new boozy memoir from Dan Dunn, a self-proclaimed "drinker with a writing problem," is filled with anecdotes from his life-as-party. But we're pretty sure some of them—like Zsa Zsa Gabor slapping Jake Gyllenhaal in an elevator—only happened in his drunken imagination.

Live Art 07
SATURDAY SCENE

Live Art 07

It's pretty rare that we find a legitimate reason to brave the tourist legions inside the Hollywood & Highland complex. This Saturday, though, we've got one. Live Art 07 brings an impressive array of bands, film, photography and art culled from online submissions. This internet thing is really taking off.

Saturday
Fries & Wine
SATURDAY SODIUM

Fries & Wine

You can't help but wonder sometimes which rare vintage would go best with your value meal. This tongue-in-cheek tasting at the historic Green Acres Estate pairs McDonald's mainstays with theoretically appropriate wines, all to benefit the company's charitable division.

411: Nov 3, 6:30-9:30pm, Green Acres Estate, location information provided after online registration, Beverly Hills, 323-644-3082

Monday
Diwali Festival at Tanzore
MONDAY NEW YEAR

Diwali Festival at Tanzore

In celebration of the Indian New Year, your dinner will be enhanced by models traipsing around in the country's current fashions. There will also be dancers, musicians and, of course, Bollywood movies on the big screen.

411: Nov 5-8, Tanzore, 50 N. La Cienega Blvd (between Clifton and Wilshire), Beverly Hills, 310-652-3838

Monday
Beer-Paired Tasting at Comme Ca
MONDAY EVENT

Beer-Paired Tasting at Comme Ca

In support of a man crazy enough to surf the entire state coastline to raise pollution awareness, the least you can do is enjoy some Wild Alaskan Salmon with an IPA. Each course of this benefit tasting dinner arrives with a different brew.

411: Nov 5, $125 per person, Comme Ça, 8479 Melrose Ave (E. of La Cienega), West Hollywood, 323-782-1104
