ABBOT KINNEY—Tonight, Fiore Designs is having a 'house-warming' party: they just moved to a new space, but you're the one getting the treats. Stop by from 6pm to 10pm for music, eat and drinky, and a generous 20% discount on anything in the store—their amazing custom florals would make a great valentine's day gift, dontcha think? They're at 1617 Abbot Kinney Blvd. [Racked Inbox]
LOS FELIZ—We've heard they're trying to revitalize the First Fridays Los Feliz Artwalk. Fingers crossed. Even if it's not a thing yet, there's still plenty of art (and shopping): Happy, at 4675 Hollywood, is hosting the first LA exhibit for William Conger. La Luz de Jesus's First Friday exhibit is always a party; this month they're featuring Miran Kim. And as long as you're in the area, go across the street and check out WELTENBUERGER, a store we'll be featuring next week. [Racked Inbox]
MELROSE—We wonder how many people will turn out for the launch of Shanna Moakler's new cosmetic line SMOAK because they're in the market for a new eyeliner; how many will be there because she's a hot babe; and how many will be lured out by the tabloid infamy element. Which one are you? Doesn't matter, it will still be a fun event. At Ron Robinson on Saturday from 2pm to 6pm. 8118 Melrose [Racked Inbox]
ECHO PARK—Saturday night, drop by Feeding Birds to help them celebrate their one-year anniversary. The party features live music by Miles Moore, snacks & drinks, and sales throughout the store including 50% off all of their original organic print tees, and a free tee with any purchase of $100 or more. 6pm to 9pm, 1825 Echo Park Ave. Suite A [Racked Inbox]
BEVERLY HILLS—Bellacures Salon is throwing an anti-Superbowl party on Sunday: They're open from 11am to 8pm, and they're giving discounts on a variety of special pedicures. Call (310-550-5822) to make your appointment. 239 North Robertson Blvd. [Racked Inbox]
THE GROVE—It's not this weekend, but we wanted to give you a head's up to plan for Monday night: Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley from KISS are going to be signing books at Barnes and Noble. So depending on who you are, you'll either want to get there early (event starts at 7pm), or avoid the place entirely. [LA Weekly]
