DOWNTOWN—New fitness center YAS is opening their doors and throwing a party Friday night. Besides killer classes, they offer apparel, books, merchandise and gift certificates. Drop by Friday for healthy food, drinks and surprises. It's 7pm to 9:30 pm, 831 S. Hope St. [Racked Inbox]
FAIRFAX—If you're in the mood for something that isn't the same-old, same-old for Halloween, how about the Cinefamily Heavy Metal Halloween Party & Fundraiser, co-sponsored by Cinespia and LA Weekly? We're pulling this straight from the press release we got, and it sounds pretty amazing: Temporary tattoo station! Open bar! The new Lardon truck, specializing in all things bacon! Cotton candy machine! Photo booth! Open bar! Human sacrifices! Firepit! Late-night Heavy Metal Karaoke! Open bar! Craft station by Paw Paw-Club! The party starts Saturday night at 8pm and from the sound of it, probably goes until December. 611 N. Fairfax [Racked Inbox]
