Things to do for April 22, 2010

The Weekender

Renewable Drinking, $3 Kobe Sliders and Amoeba Downtown

The weekend is earthy.

Thursday
Earth Day Imbibing at La Vida
RENEWABLE DRINKING

Earth Day Imbibing at La Vida

Hollywood's newest Moroccan oasis is celebrating Earth Day by bringing you VeeV martinis for $5 all day (and night) long. Technically they call it a Treetini, because a tree will get planted for each drink you order. Could be your best booze forest yet.

Apr 22, La Vida, 1448 N Gower St (at Sunset), Hollywood, 323-962-0800

Friday
Happy Hour Comes to Vinoteque
MORE WINE?

Happy Hour Comes to Vinoteque

There's a new man in the kitchen at this low-key Melrose wine bar—he's spent time at seafood legends Water Grill and Providence, and he's come bearing happy hour. Think Fiji Albacore with Pickled Jalapeño and Cantaloupe and glasses of wine for $9 and under. Plus, mention UD for $3 Kobe Sliders.

Saturday
Amoeba Pops Up Downtown
SPIN

Amoeba Pops Up Downtown

Amid the hundreds of artsy merchants holing up in Downtown this weekend for the Unique LA market, you'll find the first-ever pop-up shop from Amoeba. This is used-records-store history in the making, people.

Apr 24-25, 11am-6pm, Unique LA, California Market Center Penthouse, 110 E Ninth St

Sunday
BOA Launches Sunday Brunch
HUEVOS

BOA Launches Sunday Brunch

Things are really heating up at the Luckman Plaza building this year—first Soho House was finally born, now BOA is launching brunch below it. Your Huevos Vallarta and Steak & Eggs with Home Fries will be helped along by frequent visits from a roving cart overstuffed with mimosas and Bloody Marys. So watch your feet.

Sundays starting Apr 25, 11am-3pm, BOA, 9200 Sunset Blvd, 310-278-2050

Wednesday
Revenge of the Merlot at Elevate
F---ING MERLOT

Revenge of the Merlot at Elevate

Merlot got a bad rap in Sideways. Here to finally set things straight: an arsenal of 50 merlots and only merlots, all hauled up to a penthouse patio for an epic tasting set against some awesome Downtown views. Don't call it a comeback.

Apr 28, 7-10pm, Elevate Lounge, 811 Wilshire Blvd, Penthouse Level, tickets here

UD HOOKUP: Use code "UD" at checkout and your ticket will be reduced to $39, or mention us at the door for $50 entrance. Nonmembers will be coughing up $80 at the door, so feel special.
