The Royal We
Tonight at The Echo, show up at 8:00 PM for an Extreme Wine Tasting, "The Hypothetical Curries of Vagina Tandoori: The Wines of Château Julien of Carmel." This event matches six hypothetical curries to six wines from Château Julien of Carmel; to counter the hypothetical curry, there will be "pertinent fromage from the Cheese Store of Silver Lake" and a DJ spinning wine-drinking music. There is only room for 60, so buy your tickets early. Tickets are $18.00, and can be purchased at Sea Level Records. (21+)
In film, tonight is the beginning of the Westward Bound Westerns Festival at the Egyptian Theatre. Things are kicking off at 7:00 PM with a Howard Hawks double feature. First up is the new 35mm print of Rio Bravo, starring John Wayne, Ricky Nelson and Dean Martin, followed by Red River, starring John Wayne and Montgomery Clift in his first film role. Between films will be a discussion between actress Coleen Gray (Red River) and film critic Todd McCarthy, author of the biography Howard Hawks: The Grey Fox Of Hollywood.
