BLUE PERIOD

A Levi’s Vintage Sample Sale

No, you can’t give everyone on your holiday list an autographed headshot again this year. But, good news, Levi’s is having a seasonal sale downtown this weekend. And you can get everyone on your list denim. No rule against that.

Nov 15-16, 10am-4pm, Namaste Showroom at the Cooper Building, 860 S Los Angeles St, Ste 315

CAUL ME MAYBE

Meet the New Caulfield’s

Here’s what happens when a Le Cirque expat (Stephen Kalt) takes over that restaurant at the Thompson hotel: you get all-new menus, all-new marble communal tables, a whiskey cocktail with kiwi shrub and one magnificent lobster club sandwich. Love what you’ve done with the place, Stephen.

Friday
A Grill from Walt Disney’s Niece
BEL ON EARTH

A Grill from Walt Disney’s Niece

So, you know that cryogenically frozen guy who invented Mickey Mouse... well, after two years’ worth of renovations, his niece is finally opening her Getty Center–side bar and grill. Frankly, it’s pretty damn handsome in there. White tablecloths. Port-dipped steaks. It’s the kind of restaurant Friday nights were created for.

Saturday
USC vs. UCLA vs. a Ghost Chili Dog
TROJAN WARS

USC vs. UCLA vs. a Ghost Chili Dog

You’re watching the game Saturday. Of course you are. But until now, you probably didn’t realize you were watching it at Diablo Taco. Yup, they’ll have the big tilt on TV. And on the specials menu: a bacon/onion/bison/jalapeño/ghost chili aioli Kobe dog. For $9, pair that with a PBR michelada. And napkins.

Nov 17, Diablo Taco, 3129 W Sunset Blvd, 323-666-4666

Monday
Buying Evander Holyfield’s Stuff
REAL DEAL

Buying Evander Holyfield’s Stuff

Five-time heavyweight champ Evander Holyfield is putting some of his personal possessions up on the auction block. We know what you’re thinking... no, the bitten-off ear isn’t for sale. But the boxing gloves he wore during that fight are. As are his ’84 Olympic bronze and ’62 cherry red Corvette. Great stocking stuffer.

Exhibit Nov 19-29 (closed Nov 22 and 25), 10am-5pm; auction Nov 30, 10am and 2pm; Julien’s Auctions, 9665 Wilshire Blvd, 310-836-1818
