SUNSET PLAZA—We are so jealous of sister site Racked NY's weekly Drunk Shopping report, so we're pretty elated to report on the Sunset Strip Mass Happy Hour. It's a thing, every Wednesday night from 5pm to 8pm: Sunset Plaza boutiques, cafes and hotspots will offer a little something-something. There will be specials on signature Sunset Strip cocktails, and this Wednesday, LIVE! On Sunset, Code C, Dan Deutch Optical, Nicole, and Chez Bop are offering a tax break special. A few of the boutiques will have special events of their own, including Chez Bop, who's throwing a special reception with champagne, some new merchandise, a gemologist, and an internationally known astrologer. Fancy! The Chez Bop event runs from 6pm to 9pm [Racked Inbox]
MELROSE—Still about a week away, but we wanted to give you a head's up about the Bobi sample sale at Revolve Clothing. Besides the fun of shopping, enjoying complimentary cocktails and listening to tunes spun by Josh Madden, you're also benefiting a very good cause: 100% proceeds from this event will benefit Keep A Child Alive. It's Wednesday, June 23 from 7pm to 9pm. 8452 Melrose Avenue [Racked Inbox]
