I'm baaaack, for now with more cool sounding events and stuff for this and next weekends

Wow, there is A LOT of stuff going on since I've been out of the loop for so long AND it's almost officially summer.... yay!

West Hollywood Late Night Happy Hour Wed/Thurs

Tis a travesty for happy hours to end at 6pm. So I'm always a fan of late night happy hours. This special is not on their website, so I would call ahead to confirm. But Lolas in weho supposedly has a Wed/Thur late night happy hour from 10:30pm - 12:30am with $5.50 food, $3 beers, and $5 Finlandia martinis.

945 N. Fairfax, West Hollywood

Corkbar Late Night Happy Hour Mon-Thurs
This is a new wine bar in downtown LA that I haven't tried yet, but have heard good things about it. They too have a late happy hour that starts at 10pm! woo! Kitchen closes at 11pm, so I'd get there right at 10 to take advantage of the food specials. $4 pints, half off apps, and some other specials apparently...

Mon-Thurs, 10pm-2am (The website is incorrect. I called them and confirmed these details)
403 W12th St Los Angeles (Downtown LA)

Surfas Saturdays
My favorite Culver City gastro-supplier Surfas has lots of neat sounding foodie events going on most weekends. And chances are you'll get to sample something delicious if you show up on a Saturday around noon or 1ish. This Saturday, it's $1 pulled beef sliders and they also have a farmers market sounding thing every Saturday. Enjoying yummy sliders at Surfas' outdoor patio, then shopping at the farm stand sounds like a perfect Saturday afternoon to me.

$1 pulled beef sliders
Sat Jun 20th 12pm-2pm (yummy and cheap lunch!)

BeeGreen Farm Stand
Every Saturday 12pm-4pm

8777 Washington Blvd, Culver City

New Rooftop Lounge in Venice Beach
This new beachside rooftop lounge in Venice from today's Thrillist sounds rad. I can't wait to check it out! Opening June 25th, HIGH at the new Hotel Erwin. Name's a bit reminiscent of Venice's hobo drug culture. I wonder if that's what they were going for....

HIGH at Hotel Erwin

1697 Pacific Avenue, Los Angeles (Venice Beach)
Opening June 25th

Stuff coming up later on: Saturdays off the 405 at The Getty (ugh, does this mean it's gonna be all crowded with B&T?), Thursday night concert series at the Hammer Museum in July, POKETO popup shop at Royal/T (and the opening event next Saturday)

The drinks at Lola's are strong! One huge dirty martini made me walk all slanted.
