CERRITOS—That behemoth Forever 21 at the Los Cerritos Center has its grand opening Saturday morning. They're doing up the celebration with gift cards for the first 500 shoppers in line, coupons, a DJ, and the Spinkles Cupcakes Wagon. The doors open at 10am (but you know people are gonna line up early). [Racked, previously]
DOWNTOWN—The folks behind Unique LA are holding a Community Service fair at the California Market Center. Come down and get connected with a host of nonprofits that need support, manpower, whatever else you can offer—including Heal the Bay, Tree People, Greenpeace, and the Starlight Children's Foundation. A (suggested) $5 door donation gets you a free drink and a raffle ticket. Also on hand: DJs, food, workshops, crafts?and warm fuzzies a-plenty. Event runs from 11am to 4pm (first 50 people in line get a free notebook from Chronicle Books). 110 E. 9th St. [Racked Inbox]
HOLLYWOOD—Paper Magazine, in conjunction with Converse, is throwing what sounds like a very fun event and party at the Montalban Theater: We Love Art. The daytime event features panels and opportunities to get up close and personal with art, film, and fashion; the nighttime event is a party with booze, DJ Ana (Dim Mak) and Skeet Skeet. RSVP required for the party. 1615 Vine Street [Racked Inbox]
WEST HOLLYWOOD—We hear there's a pretty rad Superdry popup shop at LIVE! On Sunset. It just opened last week, and it's supposed to be a limited-time deal. Might we suggest checking it out sooner, rather than later? Hours are Monday to Thursday, 11am to 8pm; Friday and Saturday, 11am to 10pm; Sunday, noon to 6pm. 8801 W Sunset Blvd. (310-360-1660) [Racked Inbox]
