We've set you up with an exclusive deal from the Brit-inflected sartorial provocateurs at Psycho Bunny: UD members get an exclusive 30 percent off all knits and ties, just in time for any stockings that need stuffing...or tragically unadorned collars.
Things to do for December 11, 2008
Inverted Trees and New Lasagna
The weekend is gonna buy some stuff.
Allora Cucina Italiana Opens
At Third Street's newest restaurant, you should expect Italian classics (we hear they're especially proud of the Lasagna alla Bolognese) in a simple, low-key space. But don't expect wine, unless you've come prepared—it's BYO for now.
Frank Sinatra Party at the Room
The annual party celebrating the original swinger is so popular, it was once in...Swingers. You'll see suits, cocktail dresses and whiskey specials at tonight's tribute—the first since the bar basically doubled in size.
The bright side of the current economy: Institutions that usually never have sales...do. Labels like
Evidence of Evolution, Earnest Sewn and J Lindeberg are up to 30 percent off.
411: Now through Dec 25, American Rag, 150 S. La Brea Ave (between 1st and 2nd), 323-935-3154
Unique Los Angeles
But for a more unique gift that truly says you love her, you might need a pillow shaped like a heart—the organ, that is, valves and all—from I Heart Guts.
Meet Princess Leia
Decades after that gold bikini, Carrie Fisher has finally come to terms with her legacy—or at least will sign her book about it—before appearing as a house mother in next year's slasher remake Sorority Row. Don't wait for the action figure.
