Montana Avenue Gets an Epaulet
SHOCKED AND EPAULED

Montana Avenue Gets an Epaulet

The good news is, you’ve only got 6,950 holiday parties to hit this year. Totally manageable, though some sartorial backup may be required. Brooklyn’s esteemed Epaulet just opened on Montana, with all necessary point-collar oxford shirts, slim merino wool pants, sports coats... and non-ironic sweaters.

Now open, Epaulet, 1133 Montana Ave, Santa Monica, 424-268-4095

JEAN STREAK

A Hidden Cove of Good Jeans

Hidden away at the Levi’s Made & Crafted and Levi’s Vintage Clothing sample sale in the Cooper Building, you’ll find indigo denim jackets and clean black jeans. Go to them. As for later: well, let’s just say they won’t exactly clash with the Hennessy Black drink in your hand.

Friday
And Now, Pizza Compagnia
IN GOOD COMPAGNIA

And Now, Pizza Compagnia

When you crave a New York slice by the shore, you go to Joe’s. When you crave a pizza, a seat and pasta topped with whatever’s good at the market, you... go next door, to Pizza Compagnia. It’s part of the same empire. So Joe won’t mind.

Opens Nov 22, Pizza Compagnia, 135 Colorado Ave, Santa Monica, 310-395-9222

Detroit-Style Dinner at the Spare Room
MOTOR CITY MENUS

Detroit-Style Dinner at the Spare Room

You’ve bowled some good games over drinks at the Spare Room. But this weekend’s the first time you can sit down for six cocktail-paired courses of langoustine and king crab from a Detroit pop-up that’s been on No Reservations. Bonus: no langoustine shoes required.

Saturday
How Beverly Hills Does Candy
THE ’FINA THINGS

How Beverly Hills Does Candy

If you’re drinking a Belgian ale and want some gummy candies, well, maybe Belgian-ale gummy candies aren’t a terrible call. The new Sugarfina shop is pretty into candy spiking, and lots of its boxes would fit into any hypothetical stockings in your future. Or actual stockings.

Opens Nov 23, 11am, Sugarfina, 9495 S Santa Monica Blvd, Beverly Hills, 855-784-2734

A Very Movember Bar Crawl
SECRET STACHE

A Very Movember Bar Crawl

Whether or not your facial hair quota has increased this month, you can get behind a beer crawl. The Stouts N’ Staches crawl (yup, proceeds go to Movember) starts at Hotel Erwin’s beer garden, with shaves from Floyd’s—then bars like Larry’s await with $5 pints. Impeccably groomed pints.
