You're Invited to a Confederacy Party

To kick off the new Shipley & Halmos collection with proper aplomb, Confederacy owners Danny Masterson and Ilaria Urbinati will be hosting an intimate little blowout tonight, with a surprise band and gratis PBR. And yes, Masterson (aka DJ MomJeans) will hit the turntables. Think of the vintage-phone-booth dressing rooms as the VIP section.

Sunday
Post-Marathon Beer by the Beach

Post-Marathon Beer by the Beach

After you've crossed the LA Marathon finish line on Sunday, you'll probably be ready for heavy drinking. Bring your bib or finisher's medal to the Hotel Erwin's rooftop bar, and they'll give you a bucket of six beers, or bottomless Bloody Marys for two, for the magic price of $26.20.

Mar 21, noon-3pm, High at Hotel Erwin, 1697 Pacific Ave, 310-452-1111

Sunday Family Supper at Cecconi's

By weekend's end, you and your friends have a lot to catch up on. Cecconi's will feed four of you—with two pizzas and two large bowls of pasta—for $50 total. And if one more pal wants to hear about Saturday night, don't worry—each additional tablemate can be fed for another $12.50.

Sundays starting Mar 21, Cecconi's, 8764 Melrose Ave, 310-432-2000

A Wine Shop Goes Rum Tasting

Now even wine shops have rum on the brain. Wednesday night, your friends at Silver Lake Wine will take over a Hollywood bar to pour tastes of six rare rums and two rum-based cocktails. Order a bottle of your favorite rum of the bunch, and it'll be 15% off when you pick it up back at the shop.

Mar 24, 7pm, $35 cash at door, Three Clubs, 1123 Vine St, 323-662-9024, RSVP required
