One Day Venice Beach & One Day LA

We arrive Saturday AM (from Houston) and will have a car. We are staying at The Venice Beach House B&B. Not sure what to expect. Based on Chow posts I have made 9:00 pm reservations Saturday at Gjelina for dinner.

What's the one spot to go to for lunch?

What can we expect for nightlife in the area? Is there a good place to go after dinner to linger over a few pints or a bottle of wine?

On Sunday we will drive into LA for the Hollywood walk and 1:00 Cirque IRIS Matinee. Is there a spot near Kodak Theater that you can recommend for a pre-show bite. We will have had breakfast at the B&B. I have made 6:30 pm reservations at Vodvil, but dependent on the atmosphere may need a Plan B. Any thoughts in the $$ range? What's your opinion of Father's Office? Probably want to get back to Venice Beach to see the sunset before we leave on Monday.

What should I see? What can't be missed?

These are our only days in LA, and its my first trip. We are open to food trucks, cheap eats, small plates. We enjoy good beer and wine. And coming from Texas we get Mexican all the time so I can skip that.

Thanks in advance.
