The weekend is the sparkler in your champagne.

Ping-Pong, Champagne and... Stationery

Ping-Pong, Champagne and... Stationery

As you might’ve heard, The Standard Downtown’s got a new ping-pong/social club, SPiN. Well, we’re getting you $150 off a membership—plus a slew of other (champagne-related) privileges. Also, here’s an extra $100 toward gift sets of top-shelf spirits, delivered. And 30% off badass stationery from Terrapin Stationers. Yes, badass stationery.

Meet a New Shop Called Modern Nature

Next time you’re stocking up at Silver Lake Wine, leave the car parked for a few minutes. Turns out that pinot pairs well with a pair of swim trunks and maybe a fresh white T-shirt from Modern Nature, the new shop in the same building. You detect notes of cotton...

Now open, Modern Nature, 2395 Glendale Blvd, Ste C, Silver Lake, 323-407-6046

The Mercantile’s New Party Brunch

The Mercantile’s New Party Brunch

There’s a new chef at the Mercantile wine bar—yes, he’s been on Top Chef, and yes, he knows brunch is a priority. So when you show up this weekend, you’ll find eggs benedict with pinot noir hollandaise, oysters, bottomless mimosas and four different Bloody Marys waiting. Turns out, your priorities are aligned.

Many people have already bought $600 tickets to some club for New Year’s—on the off chance you aren’t one of those people, just show up at the Parish. Fifteen bucks at the door gets you passed apps and a midnight champagne toast. Toast to investing in the next Parish.

Dec 31, 10pm-2am, $15, The Parish, 844 S Spring St, Downtown, 213-225-2400

Starting 2013 with Boogie Nights Cabaret

Starting 2013 with <em>Boogie Nights</em> Cabaret

And if a gastropub sounds a little... too gastropubby for ringing in 2013, maybe try watching Boogie Nights. As a live musical. In a venue transformed into Studio 54 for the evening. Just another night in LA...
