This Weekend: Zombies or Glamour, Beer Me, Fancy Night Football

— by Caroline on Crack

I’m so behind! Sorry, crackheads. This Blogger Prom is taking up all my time. But if you’re not going to the fantastic Port of Los Angeles Lobster Fest, here are some other things to do.

Barnsdall Screening: LA Confidential
Co-Blogger Prom Committee member HC and I will be getting in the mood for our Hollywood Confidential-themed prom by enjoying the cinematic inspiration for our party: LA Confidential. Bring a picnic, blankets and some friends and join us in this gorgeous setting with Frank Lloyd Wright’s Hollyhock House as a backdrop. For the $25 admission you get three drink tickets or you can just do the movie for $10.

  • 5:30pm. $10-$25. Barnsdall Art Park, 4800 Hollywood Boulevard, Hollywood (map).

Last Cemetery Screening: Night of the Living Dead
ZOMG, one of my fave zombie movies and it’s perfect that Cinespia chose it for the last screening of the season. I wish I could go to this one but already bought tickets to the Barnsdall screening. If I went here I’d t0tally dress up as a zombie. It’s going to be so creepy, especially when you have to walk past the graveyard to get to the screening area!

  • 6:30pm. $10. Hollywood Forever Cemetery, 6000 Santa Monica Boulevard, Los Angeles (map).

Buy Your Tickets for the Dionicess VII – Dogfish Head & Decadence
Sure, LA Beer Week is next month but you’ll want to snatch up tickets to this October 10th beer dinner right now! It’s Dogfish Head Craft Brewery’s first LA event and they’ll be pairing five of their award-winning ales with five dishes created by Chef Greenspan of The Foundry on Melrose. Hurry! They only have a few tickets left!

  • October 10 at 1pm. $79. The Foundry on Melrose, 7465 Melrose Avenue, Los Angeles (map).

30-Foot-High Monday Night Football at Station
I don’t like football but figured it was worth mentioning this because it’s the only football screening I’ve heard of that pairs cocktails with the ball game. You can sip on cocktails like The Last Word or Cucumber Cooler between screams of “Gooaaalll!” Oh wait, wrong game? In any case drink specials include 2-for-1 drinks during the game as well as $15 buckets of PBR. The bar menu which is about $6-$14 will have fancy Monte Cristo sandwiches and Quatre Fromages Pizza, too. And if you are actually there for the game, you’ll be happy to know it’ll be playing on a 30-foot-tall outdoor screen.
