Things to do for February 12, 2009

The Weekender

Dow-Dependent Drinks and a Royale with Cheese

The weekend has a surprise for you.

Thursday
Recession Cocktails at Luau
DRINK MARKET

Recession Cocktails at Luau

Say the Dow is actually a Recession Punch, heavy on the rum. Last year it would've been humming along at $14, but the price of Luau's new concoction fluctuates daily with the downs and further-downs of the market. Last check: $8.72.

Now at Luau, 369 N. Bedford Dr (N. of Wilshire), Beverly Hills, 310-274-0090

Friday
M Café Beverly Hills Now Open
LUNCH

M Café Beverly Hills Now Open

The institution that made you okay with formerly dirty words like "macrobiotic" has birthed its third location, this one in the 90210. Because when you and Gwyneth need your Seitan Katsu Bowls, you need them now.

9433 Brighton Way (W. of Canon), Beverly Hills, 310-858-8459

Saturday
Ciel at SLS Now Open
SPIFF

Ciel at SLS Now Open

At the brand-new spa, you can now schedule a Synchronized Massage with your plus-one of choice. It'll grant you access to the hotel's striking rooftop pool deck, with a view of La Cienega traffic that'll lead you right back in for another massage.

465 S. La Cienega Blvd (S. of San Vicente), Beverly Hills, 310-246-5560

Sunday
Brunch at Fraiche
ROYALE WITH CHEESE

Brunch at Fraiche

Memories of risotto and the occasional flaming absinthe may soon give way to Spanish Scrambles and the Royale with Cheese, a burger topped with gruyere. This Culver City institution is now open for brunch, and they're convinced it's okay to end brunch with brownies.

Sat-Sun 11:30am-2pm, Fraiche, 9411 Culver Blvd (at Washington), 310-839-6800

Apartment 3's New Home
MOVING DAY

Apartment 3's New Home

The famed purveyor of edgy designer goods, prime vintage and the occasional condom wallet has officially moved yet again—into what feels like a more permanent Los Feliz home. Champagne corks will pop at Sunday's kickoff party. Relocation, relocation, relocation…

Party Feb 15, 1-7pm, Apartment 3, 4634 Hollywood Blvd (E. of Vermont), RSVP here
