MELROSE—Don't make us pronounce the name of groovy backpackers Fjallraven. We know their cute, boxy Euro bags, packs and murses; they also do handsome outerwear and apparel, too. On Saturday, they're having a little party at Ron Herman: food, drinks and waterproofing! Plus, giveaways and a portion of the day's sales will go to charity. It's Saturday from 3pm to 6pm, 8100 Melrose [Racked Inbox]
ROBERTSON—Rock & Republic is throwing a pre-Halloween bash: drinks, food, and a 31% discount off select items. Costumes encouraged; costumes that use R&R jeans are especially encouraged. The party is Friday, from 6pm to 8pm, 105 S. Robertson [Racked Inbox]
