2 New Perks

For this week's batch of perky goodness, we've got 25 percent off on all Bliss spa products online and 30 percent off all polos (like Fred Perry and J. Lindeberg) from Fresh Polos. We've also got an extra 10 percent off a bulletproof polo. But you can't put a price on safety...

El Bar Opens

El Bar Opens

From the man behind the Well, the Woods and the Fifth, El Bar offers a deep tequila selection, house-made sangrias and special deliveries from the pizza place next door—all in a small, matador-friendly hideaway complete with bull's head behind the bar. No bull.

Opens today, 3256 W. Cahuenga Blvd (N. of Barham), Universal City, 323-851-5111



To everything there is a season—and when that season ends, everything gets discounted by 50 percent.

Bring in that button-down you never wear anymore, and the people at Steven Alan will give it to charity—and give you $25 off a new one.

Freelancer Fridays at Blankspaces

Freelancer Fridays at Blankspaces

In the freelancing world, there are two rules. 1) You occasionally need a lively office environment that's not your couch—hence Blankspaces. 2) You generally treat Thursdays as Fridays—hence their new monthly happy hour, with free food and drinks.

Dec 18 and every third Thursday thereafter, 6-9pm, Blankspaces, 5405 Wilshire Blvd (at Cloverdale), Miracle Mile, 323-330-9505, RSVP

Happy Hour at Chloe

Mon-Fri, 5-7pm, Bar Chloe, 1449 Second St (between Santa Monica and Broadway), Santa Monica, 310-899-6999

Free Burgers at Morton's

Free Burgers at Morton's

In celebration of 30 years of business, the Morton's empire is dutifully unloading free burgers (technically, Mini Prime Cheeseburgers) at the bar for an hour on Sunday night. As all celebrators should.
