Weekly dining events

I know that there are a few restaurants that have special dining events every week. Here are the ones I know of:

Sunday suppers at Lucques (been a few times, usually good)
Thursday family-style dinners at Angeli Caffe (never been, very curious)
Sunday burger night at Grace (never been)
Wednesday doughnut shoppe night at Grace (never been, but sampled the doughnuts on another night--deelish)
Thursday tartine/grilled cheese night at Campanille (refuse to go on principle; I can make great interesting grilled cheese sandwiches at home)
Monday bistro at JiRaffe (never been)
Wednesday farmer's market menu at Josie (good, but rather small portions)

These are all that immediately come to mind. What are some others around town? Have you been to any? What was your experience with them?

    Marmalade Cafe in Calabasas has crab and lobster special for $25 on Tuesday nights.
    Flemings in Woodland Hills has prime rib special on Sunday night.

    Anyone been to either? If so, how was it?

        Mozza - Tuesday duck night (so I've heard)

        Saddle Peak Lodge - chili Wednesdays

        Whist at Viceroy - Taste of Tuesdays poolside menu of $5 small bites

        Literati II - Monday burger night (choice/combo of wild sturgeon, venison, turkey, beef) - I read about this a while back. Can anyone confirm they still do this?

            Scroll about halfway down this page http://www.novusvinum.com/winedinners...
            where the headings start to be printed in BLUE and you'll see the day by day specials!
