If you're an anti-establishment type with a soft spot for Hallmark holidays, you can stick it to The Man by toasting V-Day a week early at ShopWalk's quarterly block party. The bash returns to DTLA's Historic Core this Sunday, February 8th, uniting over 50 boutiques, bars, eateries, and other local businesses for a date-day of boozy bargain shopping, dining, and more.
From 12 to 7pm, head to the stylish shopping haunt for dining discounts at restos like legendary French dip spot Cole's, beer and burger bargains at LA Brew Co. and Umami Burger, and others; then continue your romantic retail therapy itinerary at boutiques like essential designer vintage spot Buttons & Bows, indie home goods shop Articulum General Store, Beyoncé-approved LA apparel brand Sub_Urban Riot's flagship, and many others. Up ahead, we've mapped out the best sales to hit up at the one-day bash; to plan the rest of your pre-Valentine's Day date, check out the full roster of participants here.
