We’d like to invite you to a safari-themed cocktail party at the Wildlife Waystation... with 400 exotic animals on the guest list. We’re also hooking you up with vintage handsomeness (like gazelle horns) curated by V&M and the nicest shaving cream you’ll ever use, for 20 bucks.

5 Ways to Spend Labor Day Weekend
The weekend, now with 50% more weekend.
Your New Place for Old Rock T-Shirts
You might know the name Kelly Cole—the kind of guy who’s run legendary bars and DJ’d legendary parties. Now he’s also the kind of guy who wants to sell you some vintage rock T-shirts, artsy books and a badass leather jacket. Your kind of guy.
Faux Pas Happy Hour. All Weekend.
For a three-day weekend, you’re going to need a serious happy hour on perpetual standby. No messing around. Faux Pas has a new one, and it’s a doozy—in short, drinks are two-for-one at the bar. Every day. All the time. Well, when they’re open.
Silence of the Lambs, Now a Musical
You’ve been thinking. Musicals these days are missing three key ingredients: cannibalism, creepy moths and lotion in baskets. Behold Silence! The Musical, the kind of creation that lets you take in some theater without things getting sappy. Unless you have a soft spot for moths.
10 Hours of Bands and Beach
Bags are packed. Tank is full. A road trip is inevitable this weekend. Only problem: nobody figured out where. Head to Newport Beach on Sunday and you’ll find a new music fest with bands like Yacht and Dale Earnhardt Jr Jr right on the shore. Also inevitable this weekend: sand.
Your Labor Day Barbecue, Handled
You’ve got a huge barbecue planned. All you need is the burgers. And the St. Louis–style pork ribs. And the watermelon salad. And... actually, you’ve only gotten as far as inviting 300 people to your place. Luckily, the Larder at Tavern has a special takeout menu going for the holiday. Better call them. Now.
