Things to do for November 21, 2007

The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekender is mightier than the tryptophan.

Wednesday
Wednesday Night Bake at Area
WEDNESDAY KICKOFF

Wednesday Night Bake at Area

Nothing says Thanksgiving Day like a hangover. The hosted open bar for the first hour of this annual Wednesday-before-Thanksgiving party should help you get started.

411: Nov 21, 9pm-2am, Area, 643 N. La Cienega Blvd (N. of Melrose), West Hollywood, 310-652-2012, see the flier here

Thursday
Turkey and a Room
THURSDAY THANKS

Turkey and a Room

You likely haven't experienced chef Peter Gobin's talents since he's hidden away in the Chamberlain Hotel and his small restaurant is open only to guests. Only one way to solve this issue—get a room, and partake in his prix-fixe Thanksgiving dinner up there or downstairs.

Thursday
Dinner To-Go at Simon LA
THURSDAY THANKS AGAIN

Dinner To-Go at Simon LA

If you'd rather do a more traditional dinner at home (minus the actual preparation, of course), Kerry Simon's restaurant is still accepting orders for its take-home dinners. Just like mom used to make...if mom had ever cooked for David Bowie.

411: Nov 22, $65 per person (quantities limited), Simon at the Sofitel LA, 8555 Beverly Blvd (at La Cienega), West Hollywood, 310-358-3979

Friday
The Left-Over
FRIDAY FLASHBACK

The Left-Over

The very casual, very loud Sunday-afternoon summer blowout usually known as "The Do-Over" returns—except not in summer and not on a Sunday. In typical form, the DJ is hush-hush and the line will get long early.

411: Nov 23, 2pm, Crane's Hollywood Tavern, 1611 N. El Centro (between Sunset and Hollywood), Hollywood, see the flier here

Saturday
Allamacani Jr. High Dance Redux
SATURDAY FLASHBACK AGAIN

Allamacani Jr. High Dance Redux

Holiday weekends always fill you with nostalgia, that most forgetful of emotions. This tongue-in-cheek take on a junior-high dance offers you a second chance to get the night right—or at least enjoy how horribly wrong it all is this time.

411: Nov 24, 9pm, Art Share LA, 326 S. Hewitt, Downtown
