SANTA MONICA—Recently RVCA has continued to expand above and beyond its initial conception as an men's activewear brand to include cute gear for us ladies (we're especially loving their intimates, The Sunday Collection). Their brand new storefront in Santa Monica (2625 Main Street) will feature all of the above plus accessories and kids' stuff by the lifestyle-focused label, but also will act as a gallery space for art and photography by RVCA's local artist friends. Come view the new digs this Tuesday during an opening party from 6-10pm. Expect music, giveaways, brews, and general good times as you ring in the neighborhood's new addition.
FAIRFAX—Those of you who have been glued to your TV's for this season of ABC's Dancing With the Stars (we're looking at you, mom) will surely be tuned in Monday and Tuesday nights for the two-part finale. But—since we live in the city of stars—why not check out the real deal live and in person? This Tuesday The Grove (189 The Grove Drive) will provide the stage for the top performers' final routines, plus a visit from a few we lost along the way and some not-to-be-missed musical numbers featuring acts like Elle King and Alexander Jean. To be part of the live audience, head to the shopping mall's center fountain at 5:15pm to catch the pre-show action, and stay for the show taping from 6-8pm. This event is free and open to the public—particularly those DWTS addicts.
