The Weekend Starts Here
When boxing and Cinco de Mayo converge, a good weekend is made.
Get a first look at all the mid-century goods (including rare vintage guitars, jukeboxes and speakers) before the public. Between your sure-to-be-impressive soliloquies on Eames and Saarinen, fill your mouth with the sponsored vodka, wine and food.
For the Fifth, this new spot will offer $10 Mexican pizzas and half-price Mexican beers, tequila and margaritas—and the flat-screens will show De La Hoya vs. Mayweather, por supuesto.
411: May 5, 829 N. La Cienega Blvd (between Willoughby and Waring), West Hollywood, 310-659-8848
The recently opened Hollywood cantina is really serious about Cinco—margaritas are two-for-one, tacos are all-you-can-eat and two huge additional screens brought in for the boxing bonanza. With free tequila shots served every hour, we're not looking forward to Seis de Mayo.
411: May 5, 6541 Hollywood Blvd (at Schrader), Hollywood, 323-871-1363
Shoppers who say "Secret Sam" at checkout get an extra 30 percent off all sale merchandise, and 50 percent if it's a sweater or outerwear. Unfortunately they really do make you say the password.
Stolichnaya vodka has created a temporary party "hotel" in Hollywood that will be home to a month-long rampage of decadent parties—and everyone getting their bottomless fill of Stoli.
