3. ASSSSCAT at Upright Citizens Brigade Theatre
Granted, a night of improv comedy isn't everyone's idea of a barrel of laughs. But if you and your date are the type of people who enjoy watching professional and up-and-coming comedic actors get themselves in awkward situations for the amusement of others, then this event at UCB Theatre is worth the wait in line. Afterward, head to nearby Birds Café and Bar for a post-show debriefing over pints and chicken wings. 5919 Franklin Ave., Los Feliz. (323) 908-8702. More information: losangeles.ucbtheatre.com.
