This weekend, we’re airmailing you five rare whiskies straight from Scotland—aged from 20 to 50 years—for 30% off. Then, sending you more whisky in the form of booze-soaked chocolate truffles. And for your next weekend getaway, we’re hooking you up with a handsome set of waxed-canvas bags.
The weekend is trending young.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
