Weekend Picks October 30, 2008

Lei Chic’s guide to the weekend’s best events.

The Halloween Spirit
You've heard all the scary stories about drinking absinthe, which makes it the boo-ze of choice for this weekend. Bartender Joey Gottesman of E&O Trading Co. has mixed up the Gargoyle, a minty/licorice tasting brew with absinthe, sour mix and simple syrup. But sip it slow – absinthe has a high alcohol content, and thanks to the herbal wormwood extract in the liquor, the effect can feel like a... Read more »

Fashionably Late

You went to see the late movie, or your pau hana drinks went way long, or you stayed late at the office to finish that project. But it’s 11 p.m. and you want to eat – and not at Zippy’s. You’re Shokudo-ed out. And one more plate of Sorabol kal bi is one too many.

In The Dog House Charlotte, Miranda, Samantha, and Carrie have martinis and breakfast sex chats. You’ve got Chinatown lunchtime shopping and pau hana happy hours. So when you’ve got better things to do, doesn’t your pooch deserve to dish with pals, too?

Pets in the City thinks so, which is why this classy doggy daycare boutique has services to make your dog feel like he deserves his own Hollywood star.

Face Value

Ever since that botched haircut last year, you’ve been a beauty school dropout. No more cut-rate salon and spa services for you.

Your attendance at the pricey place hasn’t been so good either – your budget can’t take more than $100 for every treatment. But your skin could use a refresher course.

So face facts – maybe you should go back to school. At Makana Esthetics and Wellness Academy, you can book facial and waxing services for about half of what most day spas charge. And the three treatment rooms are so well-appointed with soothing colors,... Read more »
