SANTA MONICA—Free cocktails and shopping equals a major headache for your credit card (although a fabulous time for you), but not when deep discounts are involved. We're talking 50% off some of your favorite home goods, accessories, and clothing at Cali-cool surfer-boho haven Whimsy and Row (12513 Venice Boulevard), combined with small bites, a killer photo booth, music, and all the shopping you can handle this coming Friday from 7-10pm. Definitely worth a trip, and make sure to RSVP here.
WEST HOLLYWOOD—Kid-friendly, Biel-backed eatery Au Fudge (9010 Melrose Avenue) plays host to a day of shopping and snacking in collaboration with designer clothing destination AltHouse tomorrow morning from 9am-12pm. Billed as the first social club for families, Au Fudge is offering a chance to shop a variety of dresses, tops, vintage t-shirts, sweaters, and Levi's before (or after) you enjoy some delicious treats. No reservation is required.
