Things to do for December 09, 2010
Lingerie, Watermelon and Going Out in Brentwood
The weekend is appealing its NC-17 rating.
Fancy Lingerie at 40% Off
Kiki de Montparnasse is here for you in your time of holiday need. The Melrose den of classy (but... not too classy) lingerie is now discreetly opening its Santa robe to flash discounts of 30-40% off. Consider it a gift that benefits both buyer and recipient.
Feal Mor Opens on La Brea
Last time you looked in your closet, you probably noticed a distinct shortage of nautical-looking sweaters with skull-and-crossbones on the buttons. Good news―Feal Mor has these exact sweaters in its first brick-and-mortar shop, which you can now find across from American Rag.
Bar Toscana Arrives in Brentwood
We know it might be surprising news, but there’s a new bar in the sleepy neighborhood of Brentwood, and we think you’ll actually want to visit it when it opens tomorrow next to Toscana. Best reason: a couple of esteemed Comme Ça bartenders are slinging the old-school Italian cocktails (think Aperol and Campari).
Endless Chocolate Nights at Oliverio
Fridays and Saturdays from now on, if you drop by the pool at Oliverio at the Avalon, you’ll find a truly giant spread of chocolate. As much as you can eat. Think chocolate pastries... and boozy chocolate ice cream shots... and chocolate pizza... and mini chocolate pancakes. No word on white-chocolate french toast.
Happy Hour-ing in Marina del Rey
If you haven’t gotten to check out the views at Vū yet, show up early at the new Marina del Rey restaurant’s bar on Saturday. With Christmas boats and fireworks on the water just outside, you’ll have seven hours to try $6 Mojos (whiskey, peppermint and honey) and $5 plates of Chicken-Fried Watermelon. Yes, that would be cubes of watermelon, battered and fried.
