Those resolutions aren't going to keep themselves...but a free gym membership is a pretty good start. This week's perk brings you a free week at Crunch Gym, on the off chance you resolved to do more squat-thrusts in 2010.
Things to do for January 07, 2010
Alter Egos, Free Doughboys and Escaping the 405
The weekend is the people's choice.
50 Percent Off at Fred Segal Feet
Your worn-out shoes have one last job to do: get you to Fred Segal, pretty much right now, to give you a crack at half-off replacements from Converse, Prada and John Varvatos. Then they can go off to that great big shoe box in the sky.
After playing an endless series of awkward, lovelorn adolescents, Michael Cera appears in Youth in Revolt as...an awkward, lovelorn adolescent. And also as his sinister, mustachioed alter ego. He and director Miguel Arteta are supposed to show for a free Hammer screening tonight, sans sinister alter egos. We think.
Take Flight off the 405
There's never a time when you're happy to be on the 405, especially after work. We say exit on Sunset and ride out rush hour at Luxe Lounge's new happy hour—where you'll find wine flights, beer, cocktails, Filet Mignon Satay and Provencal Pizza all priced $4 to $7. Instead of searing road rage.
You thought it was over, but the era of resolution-busting brunches and obscenely oversized red velvet cakes lives on. Unicorns still don't exist, but somehow Doughboys is back on Third St—call them up to find out when they're slinging free food in celebration (hint: tonight and Friday).
It's that time of year again—at the Brentwood Country Mart, a merry band of retailers like Monocle, Apartment Number 9 and James Perse will slash prices up to half off starting Monday. Fortunately, the merchandise itself will remain slash-free.
