There are two women in Brooklyn making jams in small batches. Jams like blueberry bourbon, sugar-coated banana and rum, and pumpkin chai. And if you’re a living, breathing human, you’ll hear that and be excited that we have an exclusive bundle of five such jams just for you. Your toast thanks you in advance.

Tonight, It Snows in Hollywood
What with the ’80s Ski Party and All. Plus: Found You Some New Burgers.By Hadley Tomicki
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.
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.
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.
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.
