Weekend Docket: 12/9/11

I'm sure everyone's schedules are chock full of Holiday Parties and whatnot, but in case you find yourself with a little free time, there are some great events going on this weekend (albeit the really cool ones are in Pasadena, what gives?!) you should check out.  As for me, it's back to the Trapeze for a little Living Social Life, Christmas Tree shopping & a tasting at the new and fully stocked bar at Spitz Little Tokyo!  Yes you can expect a full report next week... their cocktail list looks delish!

Also if you want to connect, you can always follow me on twitter @nicolemiizuka or find me on Facebook!

Vintage Denim Party @ Fred Segal
6:30pm - 8:30pm
Shopping, shopping and more shopping... it's that time of the year where every store outfits their sales with gratis booze to get your fashion styling & your credit cards loose. I wouldn't normally mention an event like this, but they're also advertising gratis Umami & PBR along with their stellar line of denim, and it's hard to pass up an offering of delicious happy burger. So if you're in the mood for a little retail therapy check it out. Levi’s XX Shop at Fred Segal, 500 Broadway, Santa Monica www.fredsegal.com

Hyundai Re:Mix Lab L.A. w/Jason Bentley featuring director Jason Reitman and turntablist Cut Chemist
7:00 PM
Join KCRW for a very special, intimate evening with KCRW Music Director, Jason Bentley as he interviews director Jason Reitman and DJ/producer Cut Chemist. As fellow creative innovators and close friends, director Jason Reitman and turntablist Cut Chemist use music as a connecting point in their personal discussions. For the first time, they will be bringing that conversation - and their deep music collections - to a live audience for a free, one-of-a-kind event. With two turntables and a microphone (ok...two microphones) Reitman, the filmmaker behind the acclaimed movies Up in the Air and Juno and renowned DJ/producer Cut Chemist (aka Lucas MacFadden) will explore the songs that have inspired them and their creative process in a loose "conversation through music." Both artists have new projects in the works and will give us hints about what's ahead. Free w/ RSVP Farmers & Merchants Bank - 401 S. Main Street www.kcrw.org

Sunday, 12/11
