Summer Sessions at Oliver Peoples

Oliver Peoples holds the latest in the Summer Sessions series tonight, with KOOP spinning records, an open bar and Oliver Peoples and Paul Smith eyewear on sale for under $100. Nothing clears up your vision like eclectic music and vodka tonics. (Oh, yeah, and glasses.)

FRIDAY AUCTION

Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance and Auction

If you're down for a road trip, head up the coast to Pebble Beach for their annual auto show. This year's auction features a 1959 Ferrari Spyder and a 1884 De Dion Bouton, the oldest running car in the world. You should probably bring a trailer.

411: Aug 16-19, Pebble Beach, 3247 Stevenson Dr, Monterey Peninsula, 831-622-1700, for the full schedule click here
THE DADDY HOOKUP: If you're one of the first 50 to email here, you'll nab a ticket to the VIP Preview Cocktail Party Friday night

Saturday
National Sumo Championships
SATURDAY SUMO

National Sumo Championships

An amateur sumo tournament kicks off Nisei Week with a bang—or, more of an awkward slapping sound. Other events include the Tofu Festival, where losers in the tournament can drown their sorrows in soy.

411: Aug 18, $10, 9am-1pm, New Otani Hotel & Garden, 120 S. Los Angeles St (between 1st and 2nd), Downtown, 323-251-1167

Saturday
Sunday
Kicks Clearance Sale
SUNDAY FOOTWEAR

Kicks Clearance Sale

If you need a break from the crowds at Sunset Junction, check out the yard sale at Kicks down the street. Overflowing out the front of the store, they've got more than 100 sneakers on sale for just $30. Yet another reason not to freak out if someone smudges your Puma.

411: Aug 18-19, Kicks Sole Provider, 3938 W. Sunset Blvd (at Sanborn), Silverlake, 323-644-1272
