Wednesday
An Essential Asset for Afternoon Drinks and Octopus Tacos
SO HAPPY TOGETHER

An Essential Asset for Afternoon Drinks and Octopus Tacos

$5 draft beers. $7 margaritas. Meatballs, wings and octopus tacos. Sounds good. Sounds, in fact, a lot like the new happy hour at Lunetta that's now happening weekdays in Santa Monica. Sounds exactly like that, actually.

Thursday
Guelaguetza Takes Over Gracias Madre on Thanksgiving
MAD MEX

Guelaguetza Takes Over Gracias Madre on Thanksgiving

Instead of preparing a traditional Thanksgiving meal at home, bring everyone to Gracias Madre, where Guelaguetza is doing the cooking. You'll find a vegan, Mexican-inspired Thanksgiving dinner benefiting indigenous communities in earthquake-struck Oaxaca. And then you'll find fewer dishes to wash at home.

Friday
Billie Holiday. In Concert. Really. Sort Of.
HAPPY HOLOGRAMS

Billie Holiday. In Concert. Really. Sort Of.

The people behind Coachella's infamous Tupac hologram now have their own theater in Hollywood. Right now, you can come in and watch a spectral Billie Holiday perform a 40-minute show. Then you can say you've seen Billie Holiday in concert. Semi-related: Keith Richards is definitely actually a hologram, right?

Saturday
Have a Scotch With That New Suit
CLOTHES FRIENDS

Have a Scotch With That New Suit

Longstanding clothier Balani just opened an elegant new showroom on the Sunset Strip. It's perfect if you're the kind of person who likes to drink scotch while being measured for a custom suit. We think you may resemble that remark.

Now open, Balani, 8601 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, 213-224-4153

Sunday
When at Beverly Center, Visit the Limoncello Cart
MALL IN THE FAMILY

When at Beverly Center, Visit the Limoncello Cart

So they're trying to make Beverly Center look less... like Beverly Center. First step, opening Cal Mare, a pizza and handmade pasta spot in partnership with Michael Mina. There's also a limoncello cart and a dish of caviar with fresh mozzarella. The two things you wanted for the holidays.

What Else Is New

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