The Weekender

The Weekend Starts Here

The weekend is no longer picketing.

Friday
Sale at Shelter
FRIDAY FURNISHING

Sale at Shelter

Generally known for its modern furniture, trendy art books and unique accents, like a lamp made from a pile of driftwood, the store becomes known this weekend for slashing prices on almost everything by 20-50%.

411: Starts Feb 14, 7920 Beverly Blvd (W. of Fairfax), West Hollywood, 323-937-3222

Saturday
BCAM Opens
SATURDAY CONTEMPORARY

BCAM Opens

Yes, the 60,000-square-foot Broad Contemporary Art Museum is now officially part of LACMA—even if the board member it's named after decided his collection will ultimately go to his foundation rather than this shiny new $56 million spread. So fickle, these billionaires.

411: Opens to the public Feb 16, 5905 Wilshire Blvd (between Fairfax and Curson), Miracle Mile, 323-857-6000

Saturday
Comme des Garcons Guerrilla Store Opens
SATURDAY STEALTH

Comme des Garcons Guerrilla Store Opens

Opening Saturday for one year, this pop-up shop will stock vintage pieces from seasons past. The floors are raw concrete, so you know they're clearly taking the guerrilla-ness seriously.

411: Opens Feb 16, 125 W. 4th St, Suite #106 (at Main), Downtown, 213-626-6606

Wednesday
Vin et Fromage at Bar Noir
WEDNESDAY WINE-ING

Vin et Fromage at Bar Noir

In the diminutive bar tucked inside a hidden Beverly Hills hotel, the weekly tastings officially return with wine from Treana, an old Paso Robles favorite. The cheese, from Froma on Melrose, has a shorter distance to travel.

411: Wednesdays beginning Feb 20, 6pm, $25, Bar Noir at Maison 140, 140 Lasky Dr (S. of Santa Monica), Beverly Hills, reservations are recommended by phone at 310-407-7795 or via email
