Gruesome Hotel: Murder Mystery and Free Cocktails
My friend and AWFF companion, Beth, is in this scary murder mystery play. But the best part, apart from Beth being in it, is that they will be serving free alcohol all night and you can actually enjoy your freebie beer, wine, cocktail in the theater! The specialty cocktail of the night is the Bloody Murder: vodka, pomegranate juice, Chambord and 7-Up.
- Thursday through Saturday at 8pm. $15 or 2 for $20. 6128 Yucca Avenue, Hollywood (map). Reservations: (323) 469-3113.

Go Native: Luau Opens
The iconic Luau, former Rat Pack haunt, is reopening its doors this Friday. Apart from the upscale tiki interior (a 33-pufferfish chandelier!), I’m thinking it will be all about those tropical cocktails. I wanna try the Luau Coconut cocktail — fresh juices, coconut milk and rum — served in a young coconut shell.

Cemetery Screening of Carrie
The only way to screen this Stephen King classic: in the cemetery! When that hand comes out of the grave, see how many people jump. Plus it’s fun to see John Travolta and Sissy Spacek when they were still so fresh faced. Dig William Katt’s white boy fro.
- Gates open at 5:30, film starts at 7pm. $10 ($5 parking). 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles (map).
Tonga Hut’s 50th Anniversary Party
Where one tiki bar reopens, another one celebrates its 50th anniversary! As LA’s oldest tiki bar this is sure to be quite a party. There will be traditional Polynesian dancers and drink specials and DJ Lee spinning lounge and exotica music to complete the theme.
- 8pm. No cover. 12808 Victory Boulevard, North Hollywood (map). (818) 769-0708.
