The weekend is finally available on iTunes.

PERK ALERT

Tonight, Every Hour Is Happy Hour

Happy hour. You’re a fan, though you prefer the “happy” part to the “hour” part. Which is why we’re taking you to Comme Ça, where you can order from the happy hour Hourglass Menu anytime after 5pm, while sipping a couple off-menu cocktails. Ah, to happy hour like the French.

PREP SCHOOL

Vince Clothes at 90% Off

If your winter wardrobe is a bit short on cashmere sweaters appropriate for the rugby field or the pub, head to the Vince sample sale, pretty much right now, for just such sweaters, plus leather jackets and polos―all discounted by up to 90%. The polos will work at the pub too.

Nov 18 (5-9pm) and 19 (5-8:30pm), 5410/5420 Wilshire Blvd, Miracle Mile

District Debuts an Oyster Bar

District Debuts an Oyster Bar

Behind all that mahogany and concrete in District, there’s a new chef in the kitchen―and he brought an oyster bar. You’ll have at least three oyster choices daily (Kumamotos from Washington, Kusshi from BC), plus specials like Fried Oyster Sandwiches. And they still have the bar-bar.

Debuts Nov 18, District, 6600 Sunset Blvd, Hollywood, 323-962-8200

Friday
Valley View Casino Opens
YOU BET

Valley View Casino Opens

If the glitz and glitter of your holiday party circuit has already started to feel overwhelming, time for the opposite of all that―a quick getaway to a totally-off-the-grid new casino near San Diego. They’ve got 2,000 slots and 25 gaming tables, so that’s 2,025 ways to forget about reindeer sweaters.

Sunday
Bottomless Bubbly and Japanese Maids
GOT IT MAID

Bottomless Bubbly and Japanese Maids

A leisurely brunch fueled by bottomless champagne that’s poured by giggling women dressed up as Japanese maids―it’s an idea whose time has come. And not just in Japan. Add $12 to your eggs Benedict order and the bubbly keeps flowing.

Sundays, 10am-3pm, Royal/T, 8910 Washington Blvd, Culver City, 310-559-6300

Tuesday
$2 Tacos, $2 Beers in Santa Monica
DOS

$2 Tacos, $2 Beers in Santa Monica

For some reason, the words taco and Tuesday have always gone together like Sonny and Cher. And when you’re talking $2 Tecates and $2 skirt steak tacos all night long at La Sandia’s bar―well, they go together like... Christina and Cher in a burlesque movie.

Tuesdays, 4pm-close, La Sandia, 395 Santa Monica Pl, Santa Monica, 310-393-3300
