SNOW DAY

A Raucous ’80s Ski Party on Sunset

Just because there’s no snow in Hollywood doesn’t mean you can’t go to a Sunset Boulevard bar tonight for some ’80s-ski-lodge-themed fun involving DJs, faux snow, a yeti, hot toddies, a whiskey ice luge and the presence of one “Bad Santa.” No. That would be categorized as a limiting belief.

Dec 7, 8pm, no cover (toy donations encouraged), The Den on Sunset, 8226 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, 323-656-0336

Thursday
Found You Some New Burgers
FI AND MIGHTY

Found You Some New Burgers

LA’s first BurgerFi is now open in Malibu serving burgers, hot dogs, onion rings and coffee mocha shakes. Bonus: there’s a veggie burger that comes topped with a regular burger. So you probably like their style already.

Now open, BurgerFi, 3939 Cross Creek Rd, Ste D-200, Malibu, 310-317-0200

Just a Little Something for Yourself...

Shinola’s fourth LA store is now open in Downtown with all of its Detroit-made watches, bikes and leather waiting for you to touch and consider procuring for someone (translation: you). And in Venice, Timbuk2 is offering 40% off when you swap out your old bag. Let it go. Just... let it go.

Now open, Shinola, 825 E 3rd St, Downtown, 213-613-1355; Dec 10-11, 11am-7pm, Timbuk2, 1410 Abbot Kinney Blvd, Venice, 424-268-5550

This Brisket Is Temporary, Glory Is Forever

Forty-five-day-aged brisket. Cherrywood-smoked beef ribs and pork baby backs. Prime tri-tip from a sidewalk smoker named Lucifer. They can all be yours at pitmaster Ragtop Fern’s weekend pop-ups in Koreatown. Assuming you get there before other people who are hungrier than you.

You Can Cross Holiday Shopping Off Your List Now

Okay, you’re going to want to get gift shopping done and get back to the holiday parties. Or whatever. Try the Echo Park Craft Fair, where dozens of artists will be selling their handmade chocolates, clothes, jewelry and home goods. You will live through this.

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
