DEVIL'S NIGHT DRIVE-IN: A few months back it was "Donnie Darko"; now the nighttime parking-lot-rooftop movie experience returns to downtown with "Hairspray" ("Hairspray" 1.0, we'll add, the version by John Waters). Tease your locks, pack a picnic, and definitely get tickets in advance. Saturday, March 13.
ST. PATRICK'S DAY FESTIVAL: Tickets are zooming, and no surprise; this lively party is happening the Sunday prior to St. Patrick's Day. So, in short, people are already getting in a raise-a-whiskey mood. At the Taglyan Cultural Center in Hollywood
"THE BIG LEBOWSKI": Will we ever get tired of seeing the Dude on the big screen? Never. This week, following the Oscars, and Jeff Bridges nabbing Best Actor, is an especially apt time to revisit the land of White Russians and comfy bathrobes. Midnight, Friday, March 12, the Nuart
NEIL YOUNG TRIBUTE: At Molly Malone's. A great bar, a great (and impressively large) line-up of musicians. And a perfect day, too: Daylight Saving Sunday, just when things are getting lighter and we want to stay out later. March 14
NATIONAL PI DAY: We've seen this one talked about everywhere, so we're guessing it'll be uber-popular. Morton's famous Key Lime pie is being discounted on Sunday, March 14. Really discounted. The slices are $3.14 -- 3/14, you get it. And you get that it'll be good.
