Print This Post Print This Post


December 1 and 2 brings some holiday shopping fun, a clean car deal, an evening of rock n’ roll nostalgia for a cause, and some inspiring short story readings at the Skirball Cultural Center.  That’s some pretty diverse happenings in and around the 818 mid-week, I’d say.

CLEAN CAR RIVALRY: Wear a USC or UCLA shirt or hat to the Fashion Square Sherman Oaks Car Wash on December 1 or 2 and get a wash for $2 ($12.99 value)!
