This Friday and Saturday night, La Brea's Wirtshaus is fashioning a different take on Mardi Gras-style Carnivale, celebrating the German version called "Fasching." Not only is the name noticeably less warm and cozy, but here the glittery Brazilian bikinis and bribing Bourbon Street drunks with beads get replaced with beer, schnitzel, wacky decor, and live German music, as well as food specials and a free beer for anyone coming in costume who orders an entree (how's that for German efficiency?). Basically, it's a little like Halloween and Oktoberfest smashed together, with more accordions and guys named Hans wearing clown suits. The party starts at 7:30 P.M. each night at 345 N. La Brea Ave.
