YOUR PECS

Streamlining Your Fitness Regimen

Yoga in Silver Lake. Pilates in Santa Monica. Dodgeball in Toluca Lake. Your fitness schedule is a full-time job. Meet your new assistant: FITiST, a members-only website that helps you organize your routines, set goals and buy classes at boutique gyms at discounted rates. No, they don’t want your old NordicTrack.

CLAMMING UP

Eating Clams with Tom Colicchio

We’re not sure what you’ve got planned this evening, but it’s not too late to share clams with Tom Colicchio. At this LA Food & Wine event, you’ll stroll around a private beach club in Santa Monica, sipping wines and downing seafood. Go ahead, wear your clam diggers.

Oct 14, 7-10pm, $350, Jonathan Beach Club, 850 Palisades Beach Rd, Santa Monica, tickets here

UD - The Bar from Swingers: Rebooted
THREE’S COMPANY

The Bar from Swingers: Rebooted

Round up Favs, Vince and Ron Livingston: we have word that Three Clubs is stepping up its game. Marc Smith (of Edison fame) has refurbished the back bar, revamped the cocktail menu and brought in a DJ to do themed nights. As usual, you’ll want to pregame with NHL ’94.

411:

Now open, Three Clubs, 1123 Vine St, 323-462-6441

Saturday

UD - Browsing Rare Vinyl in Echo Park
HIGH FIDELITY

Browsing Rare Vinyl in Echo Park

Your CD collection: legendary. Your cassette tape collection: solid. But your vinyl stash could use some work. Enter this new rare-vinyl shop in Echo Park, which claims to be a no-filler record store, meaning every single selection is highly scrutinized. We assume this means tons of Debbie Gibson.

411:

Now open, Mono Records, 1805 Glendale Blvd, 323-928-2475

Sunday

UD - Ending Your Week with Pastrami
SUPPER TIME

Ending Your Week with Pastrami

You’ve got a lot of dinner options on Restaurant Row. (Hence the term “Restaurant Row.”) But on Sundays, you’ll want to think about Mezze. In addition to the regular Mediterranean fare, they’ll have matzo ball soup, a housemade pastrami sandwich, and radish and chicken cracklings. Your favorite kind of cracklings.

411:

Sundays beginning Oct 16, 6pm, Mezze, 401 N La Cienega Blvd, West Hollywood, 310-657-4103
