SILVER LAKE—We know by now you've probably tried your fair share of pressed juices, considering their widespread popularity. But if you haven't yet tried Moon Juice's particular brand of thoughtful, healing (body alkalizing, mood enhancing, etc) tonics, milks, and other plant-based goodies, don't write off this trend. Sample the mystic hippie's fave juice bar this Saturday from 12-3pm when the Silver Lake location (2839 Sunset Boulevard) hosts a New Moon Soiree. Guests can stop by for complimentary tastes of the healthful concoctions, enjoy a 50% discount on all purchases (juice cleanse, anyone?), and shop a special pop-up from vintage boutique Tavin, who will be bringing over a selection of their insanely beautiful inventory.

VENICE—Abbot Kinney is already one of the city's hottest areas for retail therapy, but this Saturday, the trendy Venice shopping strip gives us yet another reason to make a pit stop. This weekend marks the start of Abbot Kinney Market Place's (1010 Abbot Kinney Boulevard) monthly Second Saturdays, in which neighborhood retailers offer special deals. The first up features a sample sale pop-up with brands like Gypsy05, Line + Dot, and Madison Harding. From 11am-5pm, save up to 70% on the aforementioned brands and more. While you're in the 'hood, check out the market's weekly offering of artisinal goodies.

LARCHMONT VILLAGE—Cool Japanese eyewear brand Matsuda recently released their latest collection of sleek, luxe frames. To celebrate, local stockist Daas Optique (161 N Larchmont Boulevard) will host an exclusive trunk show this Saturday. From 11am to 5pm, the chic optical boutique will be highlighting the new styles and covering the tax on any Matsuda purchase as well as offering $100 off prescription lenses to complete your perfect pair.

RANCHO CUCAMONGA—This weekend Hello Kitty's supercute cafe truck is headed to Victoria Gardens shopping center (12505 N Main Street). Grab macarons, itty-bitty cakes, donuts, and other sweets practically too adorbs to eat this Saturday from 10am-8pm. HK fans, get ready to overload your Instagram feed with food pics your friends will surely be coveting.
