PERKS

1 New Perk

Perks outfits you for summer with portable grills, swim trunks and cigarette cases from Alpha, along with other miscellany. We suggest keeping them all in your trunk for barbecue-related emergencies.

A.P.C. Summer Sale
SALE-ING

A.P.C. Summer Sale

The seasonal mayhem has begun at your favorite peddler of fine French garments—the well-cut blazers, simple button-downs and Boy Scout shorts have been discounted by up to 50 percent. Scout's honor.

June 18-23, 619 N. Croft Ave (S. of Melrose), West Hollywood, 323-297-0414

Touché at the Standard
SPIN CONTROL

Touché at the Standard

If you're just in the mood for some good DJ grooves courtesy of a mind-melting film director, Michel Gondry is among the guest spinners at this party in the hotel's Purple Lounge. There's no cover, but we're gonna go out on a limb and predict you might see some skinny jeans.

June 18, 10pm-2am, 8300 Sunset Blvd, West Hollywood, RSVP at 323-650-9090

Friday
L'Aperitif at Anisette
THE ONE

L'Aperitif at Anisette

To celebrate its first birthday (they grow up so fast), your go-to brasserie by the beach has launched a happy-hour menu with $4 charcuterie, $4 cheeses and $4 Kronenbourg 1664s. Sounds like about 10 good reasons to go (the beer counts for 8).

Mon-Fri, 5-7pm, 225 Santa Monica Blvd, Santa Monica, 310-395-3200

Guy's Summer Series at Luau
TIKI REVELRY

Guy's Summer Series at Luau

When Guys & Dolls  took over the legendary Guy's Bar, you thought Guy's was dead. But really it's just summering at a tiki restaurant—after dinner ends, bottle service, a dance floor and a velvet rope emerge. Like old times, but with more mai tais.

Through August, Fri-Sat, 10pm-2am, 369 N. Bedford Dr, Beverly Hills

Saturday
Campanile Turns 20
SPIT TAKE

Campanile Turns 20

The LA institution is going whole hog for its 20th-birthday blowout—actually, whole pig is more like it. Saturday's monster pig-roast will involve Lobster & Corn Cob Salad, Ice Pops and a whole lot of wine.

June 20, 4pm, 624 S. La Brea Ave, reservations required at 323-938-1447
