Since I’m sorta boycotting V-Day you won’t find a list of overpriced V-Day dinners here. Fortunately there ARE other things going on this weekend.

Friday, February 13

Free Screening of Lost in Translation at Royal/T
Enjoy Royal/T’s extended dineLA menu ($26) while watching the unlikely love story between Scarlett Jo and Bill Murray in Lost in Translation. I think this was the only movie that Scarlett Johansson was in that she didn’t really annoy me. There are two screenings, 6pm and 9pm, but call (310) 559-6300 x3 to reserve your table for dinner.

  • 6pm or 9pm. Royal/T, 8910 Washington Boulevard, Culver City (map).
