HOLLYWOOD—That fantastic Arts & Leisure popup is throwing their big grand opening party tonight. It's hosted by Obesity & Speed's Lyz Olko and astrologer Susan Miller.

LOS FELIZ—Funky jewelry store Artisan LA is having a party on Saturday night. They're also offering 20% off new pieces from the Vintage line. The party starts at 7pm. 4649 Russell Ave. [Racked Inbox]
SANTA MONICA—Now in progress: Ocean Awareness Month, which we suspect means a little more than being able to point to the Pacific on a map. Fred Segal is hosting a few in-store events to help promote the cause. Like on August 25 (event featuring the art of Marina DeBris) and Saturday August 27, which is all about Three Dots and the SeaThos Foundation. 500 Broadway [Racked Inbox]
