The Weekender

Burgers, Psycho and Shopping with Sheep

The weekend is bottomless.

Thursday
Upper West Launches Lunch
MIDDAY

Upper West Launches Lunch

The Westside's latest lofty restaurant has got the 27-foot bar, the open kitchen and the red meat. But it didn't have lunch—until today. Your Upper West Burger (topped with goat cheese, caramelized onions and arugula on toasted challah) awaits.

Friday
Happy Hour Expands at Backstage
DIVE IN

Happy Hour Expands at Backstage

Happy hour has been upgraded at Culver City's indisputably finest dive bar. They've added an extra hour each night, and Sundays too—which means you never again have to go 24 hours without a $2 beer, $3 well drink or half-price heap of mac and cheese.

Now 4-8pm nightly, Backstage, 10400 Culver Blvd, Culver City, 310-839-3892

Saturday
Shopping with Sheep
WOOLLY

Shopping with Sheep

Generally speaking, you're always up for a little total Norwegian insanity. So you'll want to drop into bright-clothes purveyor Moods of Norway on Saturday, where they'll be celebrating one year in business with gratis champagne, waffles... and some live sheep. They have different party traditions in Oslo.

Sunday
Lobster and Bottomless Bloodys
ANOTHER BELLINI, MOM?

Lobster and Bottomless Bloodys

This is the first year you'll find a Mother's Day brunch happening on Wilshire's sprawling-yet-still-remarkably-hidden patio, and they're bringing Chocolate Croissants and Lobster Benedict. There's also going to be an open bar, just in case you could use some endless mimosas, Bellinis and Bloody Marys to go with the totally-not-stressful conversation...

May 9, 11am-3pm, $55, Wilshire, 2454 Wilshire Blvd, Santa Monica, 310-586-1707

Mother's Day Goes Psycho
WIG

Mother's Day Goes Psycho

But if you're looking for a truly unique way to pay tribute to the woman who gave you life, Cinefamily has come up with a doozy. Sunday night they're screening all three Psycho films, and guys who show up dressed as their mothers will get in free. Really.
