Everything Must Go at Alpha

There’s good news and bad news. Good news: Alpha’s entire stock of Theory shirts, SLVR sweaters, wallets and gadgets is marked down by as much as 60%. Bad news: that’s because the store is closing. For now your checking account will focus on the good news.

Through Mar 31-ish, Alpha, 8654 Melrose Ave, West Hollywood, 310-855-0775

FOUR PLAY

A Final Four... Involving a Burger

Regarding March Madness, we’ll go ahead and reveal your Final Four right now: it’s Buffalo wings, a burger, a beer and a shot of whiskey, all for $20.12 at the Malibu Inn. They’ve got 16 flat-screens as well as a big 6-by-10-foot screen. It’s the power forward of televisions.

Available now at The Malibu Inn, 22969 Pacific Coast Hwy, Malibu, 310-456-1160

Saturday
Fundamental LA Enters the Brunch Fray
BRUNCH ALERT

Fundamental LA Enters the Brunch Fray

Your favorite Westside sandwich place is boldly entering new territory: no, not the Eastside. We’re talking about brunch. Weekends here now mean coffee, brioche french toast and brownies with sea salt. Wouldn’t be brunch without brownies.

Sat-Sun, 11am-3pm, Fundamental LA, 1303 Westwood Blvd, Westwood, 310-444-7581

A Classy St. Patrick’s Day. Really.
GREEN WITH ENVY

A Classy St. Patrick’s Day. Really.

If you’re not really feeling the bathtub-full-of-green-beer thing on Saturday, abscond to the Tap Room. They’ll have a regal, chandelier-lit St. Patrick’s Day with Irish martinis (Irish whiskey is involved) and a nice flight of sorbets. The flavors include whiskey and Guinness. There’s no reason to be savages about this.

Monday
Where to Buy Princess Leia’s Wig
HOLLYWOOD ESSENTIALS

Where to Buy Princess Leia’s Wig

You’ve been thinking about picking up a little Hollywood keepsake. Charlie Chaplin’s cane. Frank Sinatra’s jacket. Princess Leia’s wig. That kind of thing. Where to go to inspect the merchandise: the preview exhibit for the upcoming Hollywood Legends auction. Go ahead, bring a cart.
