Things to do for January 21, 2010

The Weekender

Haiti Help, Arty Smut and Blue Spandex

The weekend is singing in the rain.

Thursday
Street Gets Carded
CHARITY

Street Gets Carded

Now through Valentine's Day, buy a gift card at Highland's den of international street food, and 15% goes to Doctors Without Borders for Haiti support—then redeem the card next month, when Haitian food and drink specials will be on the menu.

Through Feb 14, Street, 742 N Highland Ave, 323-203-0500

Noble Sale at Steven Alan
SHIRTS

Noble Sale at Steven Alan

Fall/winter stock has just been marked down an extra 10% at Steven Alan stores, so now's a pretty good time to shirt up. Especially since another 10% of sales goes to Red Cross Haiti Relief.

Through Jan 24, in stores and online, more info here

Friday
Taschen Warehouse Sale
COVERED UP

Taschen Warehouse Sale

Time has come once again to judge some books by their covers—thousands of arty, smart and impressively dirty Taschen tomes are discounted by as much as 75% this weekend. You, of course, read them all for the articles.

Jan 22-24, Beverly Hills and Grove stores, more info here

Copious Wine at FIG
CORK

Copious Wine at FIG

You do what you can to help out. So when a Westside dinner favorite donates all wine proceeds—we repeat, all wine proceeds—to hunger-relief charity Share Our Strength (Haiti has been their top recipient over the last 20 years), you can absolutely pitch in...a lot.

Jan 22-23, FIG, 101 Wilshire Blvd (in the Fairmont Miramar), 310-319-3111

Sunday
Superman Gets Super-er at the Egyptian
BIRD, PLANE

Superman Gets Super-er at the Egyptian

Just when it seems only a man sporting blue spandex and a curly forelock can save us all, along comes a new cut of the original Superman, with eight never-before-seen minutes added. Plus: the director's cut of the sequel.
