Weeks of gluttony, Sin City Music, R-rated Theater…for starters

Eat your vegetables...and your steak...and your dessert....

Go Go’ers, this is the week to say your prayers, work your rosary, and make novenas because there is all kinds of  temptatious-ness in this big ‘ole city right now.

dineL.A. Restaurant Week(s)

Damn the diet and full feed ahead with many days (and nights!) of deals on nibbles!

This week and next, almost 300 restaurants will be offering three-course prix fixe menus — some for lunch, some for dinner, some for both — so you can gorge gourmet-it around the clock.

Plunk down $16, $22, or $28 for lunch and $26, $34, or $44 for dinner (not including tipples, tax and tip) and get your choice of appetizer, entree and dessert from the New Year’s-resolution-wrecking menus.

JK, there are spa cuisine-worthy offerings for the spartan…and the iron-willed.

(Through Friday, January 28th; January 30th through February 4th; http://discoverlosangeles.com/restaurantweekv2/index.jsp)

A picture worth a thousand words....

Dubbed “not for the faint of trousers” (you know who you are),  the new Atwater Village Theater presents the  world premiere of Mlle. God, Oscar-nominated Nicholas Kazan’s re-imagining of  Frank Wedekind’s scandalous “Lulu”.  (Immortalized, you’ll remember, in the Louise Brooks-starrer Pandora’s Box).

Scott Paulin directs the “dark comedy that is a paean to sex, art, and living in the millisecond” (Whoopee!) and inaugurates the new theater and new partnership/season of Ensemble Studio Theater and Circle X Theater Company.

Don’t bring the kiddies.

  1. Must say I’m impressed by this zippy blog of all things L.A. There does, however, seem to be a lot of info about boozing, bars and cocktails. Are you having a better time than you’re letting on?
