The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

Have yourself a steaming cup of weekend.

Thursday
Coffee Tasting at Intelligentsia
THURSDAY ROAST

Coffee Tasting at Intelligentsia

After sampling (for free) Hacienda la Esmeralda's Geisha coffee—purchased at auction by Intelligentsia for $130 per pound—you can consider shelling out $99 to take home eight ounces. Goes perfectly with that $500 bagel.

411: Nov 15, 7pm, Intelligentsia Coffee, 3922 W. Sunset Blvd (at Santa Monica), Silver Lake, 323-663-6173

Friday
ArcLight Sherman Oaks Opens
FRIDAY FLICKS

ArcLight Sherman Oaks Opens

Another Hollywood franchise is birthed. The second ArcLight has all the expected components of the original blockbuster—reserved seating, booze-friendly screenings and, we assume, shockingly verbose ushers.

411: Opens Nov 16, 15301 Ventura Blvd (at Sepulveda, in Sherman Oaks Galleria), Sherman Oaks

Friday
Riviera Cocktail
FRIDAY '50S

Riviera Cocktail

You're already familiar with Edward Quinn's legendary photographs of Grace Kelly and Sophia Loren, but his life on the Cote d'Azur also involved jazz musicians, writers and some Spanish painter named Pablo.

411: Opening reception Nov 16, 7-9pm, SCALO|GUYE, 302 N. Robertson Blvd (at Beverly), West Hollywood, 310-358-9396

Saturday
Cosa Nostra Trunk Show
SATURDAY STYLE

Cosa Nostra Trunk Show

This afternoon, you'll find one-of-a-kind men's and women's pieces. You'll find discounts. And you'll find designer and Project Runway champ Jeffrey Sebelia in the heavily neck-tattooed flesh.

411: Nov 17, noon-7:30pm, J. Ransom, 151 N. La Brea (between 1st and 2nd), 323-936-1675

Saturday
Hopscotch at Custom Hotel Opens
NEXT SATURDAY SUN

Hopscotch at Custom Hotel Opens

You're all for giving new poolside bars a shot, and you've certainly had trouble killing time in style while orbiting LAX. After Thanksgiving, the new Custom Hotel launches a quest to become the Marina Del Rey equivalent of the Standard Downtown. Competition is...less than formidable.

411: Opens Thanksgiving weekend, Hopscotch at Custom Hotel, 8639 Lincoln Blvd (at Manchester), Marina Del Rey, 310-645-0400
