A Very Levi’s Sample Sale

There are two reasons you’ll want to take a long lunch tomorrow. The first reason: you can sneak into a Downtown warehouse for a one-day-only Levi’s Vintage and Made & Crafted sale, full of $80 jeans, $35 shirts and $100 jackets. The second reason: you like long lunches.

A Rhino Records Pop-Up Store

Just steps away from where the original Rhino Records was open for more than 30 years, there’ll be a Rhino pop-up tomorrow. While rock bands perform daily, you’ll peruse the rare CDs and limited-edition vinyl. To complement your rare MP3s.

Finally, Advance Tickets for Cinespia

You’ve spent many a summer night at Cinespia’s BYO cemetery picnics... once you were able to get through the eternal mob scene at the gates. Well, it’s back for Season 10—and at long last, you can now buy parking passes and advance tickets online. RIP, mob scene.

Cinespia at Hollywood Forever, 6000 Santa Monica Blvd, Hollywood

Sunday
A Parking-Lot Pool Party
LOT OF FUN

A Parking-Lot Pool Party

Good place to party this summer: at a pool. Better place to party this summer: at a pool in a parking lot. So head to Tony’s Saloon on Sunday, where you’ll find a lot filled with water guns, skin, astroturf, gratis Jell-O shots, an above-ground pool and a giant waterslide.

Last Sunday of every month starting May 29, noon-6pm, $8, Summertramp, 2017 E 7th St, Downtown

Whist’s New Southern Brunch
SOUTHERN FRIED

Whist’s New Southern Brunch

Speaking of pools, over by the opulent pool at Whist, there’s a new Southern brunch debuting Sunday—and it involves a huge all-you-can-eat spread of fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, shrimp, grits... and a pancake bar. Not sure that last one’s Southern-specific, but you’ll allow it.

Sundays, 11am-2pm, $45, Whist, 1819 Ocean Ave, Santa Monica, 310-260-7500, see the menu
