This week, Perks gets you up to 60% off your next hotel room via Tablet Hotels' new invite-only Private Sale service, along with a way to get a free room upgrade and some gratis champagne. (And no, it doesn't involve looting the minibar.)
Things to do for March 25, 2010
Jolie's Teenage Pics, Hollywood's New Bar and a Brunch Chauffeur
The weekend will see you now.
Osteria La Buca Really Delivers
In conjunction with a new lunch menu, your Paramount-adjacent Italian go-to has introduced an admirable delivery system—basically, your Cioppino will be zipped over on a Zero electric motorcycle.
Angelina's Teenage Pics
A trove of Hollywood-glam photography is going up for grabs this weekend, including works by Harry Langdon, who shot Angelina Jolie when she was just 15 years old... offering incontrovertible proof she skipped her awkward years entirely.
With so many thousands of square feet dedicated to treadmills and squash courts, balance at the newly redone Los Angeles Athletic Club requires a bit of rooftop debauchery now and then. Friday night, you'll find tons of French and California wines, along with plenty of cheese and Valrhona chocolates. But strangely, no bench press.
Classic-Car Brunch at the Peninsula
The Peninsula Hotel's new brunch spread includes three courses (Peking Duck in Moo Shoo, Barramundi with Duck and Eggs), bottomless champagne... and a chauffeured post-meal sojourn around the city in a 1937 Packard Super 8 convertible, or one of the other restored cars from the Automobile Driving Museum. Go ahead, ask them to drive by your ex's place.
