Royal Jelly Moves to Las Vegas

You've got to admire the guy who thought to combine burlesque with live rock and roll. You've also got to admire the guy who knows that Labor Day weekend is the time to haul it all to Vegas.

Friday
Opening Ceremony Sale
FRIDAY FINDS

Opening Ceremony Sale

Your mission: to help the staff make room in the overstuffed boutique for new stock (fall theme: East Coast vs. West Coast designers). Do so by grabbing sale merch, which is an additional 25% off.

SATURDAY SPENDING

Through the electronic metal door, you'll find a medieval emporium stocked with men's and women's designer duds by Burberry Prorsum and Todd Lynn. Oh, and a polished nickel Marc Newson surfboard (yes, you're still in Malibu).

SUNDAY SOUL

Barn Burner at Seven Grand

If you're in the mood for whiskey—and we know you are—you're in good hands with Fred Booker Noe, the great grandson of Jim Beam. Drink specials and live music are two other reasons you should probably just keep the holiday weekend rolling.
