Let our Hit List guide your nighttime activities

It’s nice when new stuff pops up in the local bar scene. While I enjoy a glass of wine (or six) while watching one (or four) episodes of [insert TV show title here], putting on pants and checking out a new nighttime establishment also has its merits. You get to see the outside, which is lovely, and interact with humans, which can be pretty lame if they don’t like talking about [insert TVshow title here].

These three new night happenings don’t require socializing, thankfully. But unless you want to end up like Howard Hughes or Little Edie Beal, you’d better take off those sweatpants and GTFO of your house.

With the opening of Frauds and Swindlers, located in the Keating Hotel (820 Fifth Ave.), the Gaslamp has a new hot spot with legit craft-cocktail cred (co-owner Aidan Demarest also owns Glendale bar Neat). F&S is still in soft-opening mode, but you can douse your liver with a little something from a list of sexy, fancy cocktails. It’s another one of those old-timey, curly-mustache establishments, but, whatever. Drinking is fun.

Fashion Whore, everyone’s favorite hipsterparty-girl night, has moved again, this time setting up a runway at U-31 (3112 University Ave. in North Park) on Saturday, Aug. 17. DJ Tigh will supply the music as models do their best RuPaul catwalk trot in looks by designers Jean Kelly and Lady Lane. Don’t show up in some ratchet outfit, because there will be a party photographer snapping shots.You don’t want to become America’s next goofyhipster meme. It starts at 8 p.m. 

Sycamore Den (3391 Adams Ave. in Normal Heights) is giving music nerds an event of their very own with Album Night. Every Monday, the bar plays an album in its entirety while serving cocktails inspired by the music. On Aug. 19, James Brown’s Gold will spin as barkeeps pour The Payback, a delicious concoction of gin, maraschino, lime, grapefruit, absinthe and Peyschaud’s bitters. It’s enough to get you screaming “Hey! I feel good!”


Does your event deserve to be in our top three? Email our events editor, Alex Zaragoza. You can also bug her on Twitter.
