Things to do for November 23, 2011

The Weekender

Leather Jackets, Chocolate Spoons and a Thanksgiving Burger

The weekend is making you a plate for the road.

Wednesday
John Varvatos at 50% Off
DEAR JOHN

John Varvatos at 50% Off

Your final holiday gift to yourself: a leather jacket. Maybe some jeans. Okay, and a pinstripe suit. Time to hit John Varvatos, where a ton of stock is marked down by as much as 50%. And just like that, you’re all set for turkey at Steven Tyler’s place.

Starts Nov 23, in Melrose and Malibu stores and online

A Permanent Happy Hour, Sort Of
CLIFF’S NOTE

A Permanent Happy Hour, Sort Of

The Bar at Cliff’s has become a standby whenever you need a low-key vibe and a solid whiskey cocktail. Now it’s a standby for happy hour—every night from 6pm on, they’ll have a $3 beer and a $7 drink, like maybe a Gold Rush (bourbon, lemon and honey). You’re golden.

Nightly, 6pm-close, The Bar at Cliff’s, 3626 W Sunset Blvd, Silver Lake, 323-666-6116

Finally, a Thanksgiving Burger
GO TURKEY

Finally, a Thanksgiving Burger

Holiday feasts are great, but sometimes you just want a burger. From now through the weekend, GO Burger brings you both—the Thanksgiving Burger is a turkey patty topped with stuffing, sweet potatoes, rosemary gravy and cranberry sauce. Just like your Thursday plate, only more vertical.

Through Nov 27 (closed tomorrow), $11, GO Burger, 6290 Sunset Blvd, 323-327-9355

Friday
A Very Chocolaty Pop-Up Shop
CHOC IT UP

A Very Chocolaty Pop-Up Shop

Historically, the Grove is lacking in weird things made out of chocolate. Good news: Madame Chocolat is opening a pop-up right under the big Christmas tree on Friday, where you can buy chocolate spoons, chocolates that look like purses and chocolates that look like high heels. No word on Jimmy Choo chocolates.

Saturday
Introducing the Outdoor Spin Class
BIKE CURIOUS

Introducing the Outdoor Spin Class

After this week, you’re going to need to hop on a stationary bike. Or a nonstationary bike. All over LA, anywhere from Franklin Canyon to Beverly Hills. Bikes and Hikes will provide the bikes, helmets and great outdoors, you provide the quads and charisma. And maybe the spandex.

Sat-Sun, 10am, Bikes and Hikes, departs from 8743 Santa Monica Blvd, 323-796-8555
