Lina Lecaro presents and signs Los Angeles’ Best Dive Bars @Book Soup
LA Weekly's nightlife columnist Lina Lecaro presents her work, Los Angeles' Best Dive Bars, in person for a signing at Book Soup tonight at 7 p.m. Lecaro's book includes info on "the city’s liveliest, lowlife n’ liquor-soaked landmarks. This essential booze bible has the lowdown on which bars serve free food, which have great—and not so great—karaoke, bars that appear in your favorite movies and much, much more." Meet Lecaro, get your copy autographed, and then see what's nearby on a Sunday night and put that book to work for you!

Gone With the Wind @ The Aero Theatre
See the 1939 Civil War epic Gone With the Wind on the big screen tonight at 7:30 p.m. at The Aero in Santa Monica. Thought Scarlett O'Hara was into the whole "tomorrow is another day" thing, if you wait until tomorrow, you'll miss the movie.
