The Weekender

Sunglasses, Lingerie Basketball and Mendocino Farms

The weekend is Dodger shopping.

Thursday
Mendocino Farms Meets WeHo
FARMS FRESH

Mendocino Farms Meets WeHo

You might be familiar with the delicious sandwiches from Mendocino Farms, but you’ve never gotten familiar with them in WeHo—until today. The new outpost brings you all the Kurobuta Pork Belly Banh Mi you’d expect, under an indoor tree. It’s like a picnic with walls.

Now open, Mendocino Farms, 7100 Santa Monica Blvd, West Hollywood, 323-512-2700

Start (and Finish) Gift Shopping Here

’Tis the season... when you have no idea what to buy for anybody. Solution: Tweak 99, a pop-up gift shop stocked with a bunch of random design-y loot, from concrete coasters to mini ping-pong sets. Everything’s prewrapped and the whole place is sorted by price. Done and done.

Now open, Tweak 99, 8384 Beverly Blvd, 855-893-2599

Le Cellier Wine Bar Opens

Le Cellier Wine Bar Opens

You might’ve heard about the nice little wine bar that quietly opened in Marina del Rey—only they weren’t permitted to pour wine right away. But that’s all settled, so come by for some roasted pork loin and a bottle of red. You do like wine at your wine bars.

Friday
The Lingerie Basketball Championship
POINT GARTER

The Lingerie Basketball Championship

If you thought lingerie basketball wasn’t a serious sport, you were sort of right. Still, tomorrow night’s the championship showdown between the LA Beauties and the LA Glam, and you can bet there will be absolutely no jerseys. Take your time, NBA...

Saturday
Shades and Champagne at Confederacy
HERE COMES THE SUN

Shades and Champagne at Confederacy

In LA, new winter shades aren’t a bad idea—and Warby Parker has just set up shop in Confederacy. The frames all look pretty classic/hip, they’re all just 95 bucks, and if you visit Saturday from 2 to 5pm, the Warby Parker folks will pour you gratis glasses of bubbly. Consider them champagne goggles.

Available now at Confederacy, 4661 Hollywood Blvd, Los Feliz, 323-913-3040
