MELROSE PLACE—Do we call him Yvan Rodic, or should we call him The Face Hunter? At any rate, he's doing a booksigning at Leadapron in West Hollywood on Wednesday night. The event is from 6pm to 8pm, 8454 Melrose Place [Racked Inbox]
CULVER CITY—Nelly is doing a two-fer: he'll be at Macy's to show the latest pieces from his Apple Bottoms line, and he's also spreading the word to encourage people to donate blood and bone marrow. Customers who make an Apple Bottoms purchase of $50 or more will have the opportunity to meet him and collect his autograph. A bloodmobile will be set up in the parking lots, and you can register to donate bone marrow inside. The event is Friday, starting at 5pm. 6200 Slauson Avenue (upstairs in the Juniors department) [Racked Inbox]
