The Weekender

Saucy Shopgirls, Four-Wine Pairings and Keanu's Clothes

The weekend is hungry for more.

PERKS

1 New Perk

This week, we're getting together with J.Crew to give you a chance at a whirlwind weekend in New York, complete with two nights of downtown revelry and a $2000 J.Crew gift card. If for some reason you want to sleep, we'll also set you up in a penthouse suite at the Royalton.

Five to Nine Happy Hour at Cameo Bar
GET HAPPY

Five to Nine Happy Hour at Cameo Bar

Nine to five—you know the deal. But five to nine—that's when you hit the Viceroy pool's new happy hour for food and drink priced from $5 (beer called Mama's Little Yella Pils) to $9 (Halibut Tacos). Thursdays go until closing, thereby revising your Friday workday—maybe 11ish to five.

Mon-Fri, 5-9pm (until 1am Thurs), Cameo Bar, 1819 Ocean Ave, 310-260-7500

Friday
Circus Sale at Coco de Mer
FLESH

Circus Sale at Coco de Mer

Step right up to this classy smut den's three-ring sale—lingerie from the likes of La Perla is going out at 75 percent off, and the shopgirls will be dressed in circus attire to move things along. They may not be cracking whips, but they'll sell you one.

Oct 9-11, Coco de Mer, 8618 Melrose Ave (at Huntley), 310-652-0311

Saturday
Movie Wardrobe Sale at the Roosevelt
ACTION

Movie Wardrobe Sale at the Roosevelt

Over at the Roosevelt, while tourists shop for cheap T-shirts outside, you—ever the insider—can step into the hotel for…cheap T-shirts. Important distinction: all the clothes at this sale come from movies like The Last Samurai and The Matrix. If you see a leather trench, you know what to do.

$5 admission, Oct 10-12, The Roosevelt, 7000 Hollywood Blvd, 818-812-6068

Monday
Flight Club at Rustic Canyon
MORE WINE

Flight Club at Rustic Canyon

Each Monday at Rustic Canyon's Flight Club, the night's special comes paired with a whole wine flight instead of just one glass. This week it's Coq au Vin with four gems from the Rhône Valley, which obviously is just as badass as beating the hell out of a stranger in some basement.

Mondays, Rustic Canyon, 1119 Wilshire Blvd (E. of 11th), 310-393-7050

Tuesday
Thyme Café and Market Opens
DEBUT

Thyme Café and Market Opens

On a barren patch of Santa Monica road, a pristine new café and market (by which we mean respectable lunch spot) awaits you—featuring goods like a Steak Sandwich With Horseradish Aioli and a Grilled Cheese With Tomato, Bacon and Avocado. And if you want dinner, you can take it home in a box.

Opens Oct 13, 7am-7pm daily, 1630 Ocean Park Ave (E. of 16th), 310-399-8800
