HOLLYWOOD—Chill vibes will be abound for the kick-off of a beach bum-friendly pop-up at Space 15 Twenty (1520 N Cahuenga Boulevard). Mowgli Surf teams up with Mokuyobi Threads for a five-week-long shopping experience packed with colorful, Cali-cool gear. Stop by Friday's reception from 6-9pm and grab free brews courtesy of hipster fave Pabst Blue Ribbon and groove with Aaron Coyes of Peaking Lights, who will be handling the night's tune selection.
UNIVERSAL CITY—You're allowed to skip your fitness routine on Monday (that's considered "labor," right?) in favor of BBQ goodness and lazing around the house (hand raised over here) because we've got the scoop on a way to burn off those extra cals the next day. Get back on the workout train—in a major way—Tuesday when fitness phenom Jillian Michaels offers a free "Body Shred Workout" at Universal CityWalk 5 Tower Plaza (100 Universal City Plaza) at 6pm to the first 300 peeps to RSVP at firstname.lastname@example.org. The booty-kicking class will be filmed for a cable TV show, so you might wanna break out the good yoga pants and sports bra to feel camera ready.
