Brunch for Dinner, Tough Belts & Crunch

Brunch: great, but... early. Here to help: Hollywood’s Vintage Enoteca, serving a four-course wine brunch at 7pm on December 18, only for Perks members. Plus, we’re bringing you handsomely rugged belts—handmade in a Tennessee river—for 40% off. And so you’ll still fit into that belt, a gratis two weeks at Crunch.

THIGHS MATTER

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.

Through Dec 21, 8280 Melrose Ave, 323-951-9545, in store and online with code “givelove”

Feal Mor Opens on La Brea
NAUTICAL OR NICE

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.

Now open, Feal Mor, 165 S La Brea Ave, 323-939-6600

Friday
Bar Toscana Arrives in Brentwood
THE ’WOOD

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).

Opens Dec 10, Bar Toscana, 11633 San Vicente Blvd, Brentwood, 310-820-2448

Endless Chocolate Nights at Oliverio
CHOCOLATE FACTORY

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.

Fri-Sat, 7:30-11pm, $28 ($17 with dinner), Oliverio, 9400 W Olympic Blvd, 310-277-5221

Saturday
Happy Hour-ing in Marina del Rey
WATER, MELON

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.

Dec 11, 4-11pm, , 14160 Palawan Way, Marina del Rey, 310-439-3033
