ECHO PARK—We don't know what the hell grog is, but since our friends at Tavin are brewing it up, we're sure it's exquisite. (And it's accompanied by chocolate.) The gorgeous Echo Park boutique is serving up holiday cheer by the cupful, along with entertainment, shopping, and a little bit of magic. The party is Saturday, December 12, from 5pm to 9pm. 1543 Echo Park Ave. (213-482-5832) [Racked Inbox]
