This Virginia Menswear Legend Just Planted a Flag in Downtown

Virginian menswear shop Commonwealth just opened a nice, big flagship store in the Arts District. It's perfect for picking up stuff like their one-off clothing collaborations, new sneakers, some Native Sons shades and A.P.C. candles. You know someone will want a candle this year.

Now open, Commonwealth, 2008 E 7th St, Downtown, 213-537-0584

An Evening of Hand-Rolled Cigars and Not Hand-Rolled Whiskey

You know what sounds enjoyable? Going to Century City's Copper Lounge tomorrow night to enjoy hand-rolled cigars and rare whiskey flights on their patio, with the option to buy some stogies as holiday gifts. That sounds enjoyable.

DAIRY CHRISTMAS

So Many Crack Pie Opportunities

Milk Bar, the sweet side of Momofuku's empire, is appearing this weekend prior to an upcoming LA opening. Catch all the Crack Pie and cake truffle action at Jon & Vinny's on Friday afternoon, followed by a Sunday stint with the NoMad Truck at Smorgasburg. Yes, we got you a massive line to stand in for the holidays.

FREAKS AND PEAKS

You're Brunching in a Twin Peaks Bar This Week

Twin Peaks' Roadhouse Bar. Just your average, ordinary place to get a beer and listen to trippy synth music before a dwarf identifies murderers in your dreams. It's currently being recreated at Melrose Umbrella Company, with brunch launching this weekend. Better have good coffee.

ART-TIME LOVER

Third Street Promenade Becomes a Living Canvas

You're steeling yourself for the inevitable torment of holiday shopping on Third Street Promenade. Meanwhile, street artists Dabs and Myla are doing their part to ease the pain, covering this three-block stretch with colorful paintings and mechanized 3-D installations to remind you that this season's about joy. You needed that.
