Vince Sample Sale

Now that winter's almost here, that means fall weather may have finally arrived—so it's a good time for you to stock up on some layering-friendly button-downs, sweaters and jackets from Vince at 50-75 percent off. Should tide you over until summer returns next week.

Raw Bar at the Hall

Everybody has different ways to relieve post-workday stress—you prefer to order up some vino and tear messily into some shrimp and tender King Crab Legs. The new raw bar in this hidden courtyard brasserie is here for you.

Movember at the Avalon

Facial hair has gotten profound this month, now that growing a mustache is an act of charity. You've still got about 24 hours to get yours filled out for the Avalon's benefit...where tickets to Hef's mansion are up for grabs for the most noble above-the-lip accomplishment.

Nov 21, 9pm, Avalon, 1735 N. Vine St (between Hollywood and Yucca), Hollywood, tickets available here

Saturday
LA Auto Show
GAS PEDAL

LA Auto Show

As Detroit's big three hang in the balance, you now have your chance to ponder the possibilities of the open road ahead. By which we mean your first look at the Ferrari California (the company's first retractable hard-top convertible) and...lots of hybrids.

Nov 21-30, $10, Los Angeles Convention Center, 1201 S. Figueroa St (at 12th), Downtown

Recovery Lounge Menu at Nobu

In these times, you're not against some unexpected deals at under-the-radar finds—you know, like Nobu. The lounge's new menu pushes $8 fish and chips, $7 rock-shrimp tempura and, most importantly, discounted drinks from the bar.

Available Sun-Thu, 8pm-close starting Nov 23, Nobu Los Angeles, 903 N. La Cienega Blvd (S. of Santa Monica), 310-657-5711
