WESTWOOD—Whiskey Blue at the Westwood W is home to a Relief for Japan fundraising event, with money being donated to the American Red Cross. Tickets are $10; not only will the door money go to charity, but 10% of the bar sales will, too! But it's a really bad idea to buy 10 shots and say you're drinking to help Japan, OK? Easy tiger, after all, it's on a Wednesday night, so you got school the next day. 7pm to 11pm. 930 Hilgard Ave. [Racked Inbox]
