While we're busy trying to convince ourselves that we don't want to go to Cochella - because really, who are the Stone Roses? - we'll be gorging on lobsters, meeting up with a Swedish dance duo, watching miniature films and learning how to make perfect cocktails.
Now that all of the holiday parties are officially over, it's time for the Spare Room at the Roosevelt Hotel to get back to its tournament series. In addition to the bowling league, there are a series tournies in the gaming lounge.
Between now and February 1, more than 250 participating restaurants will offer specials which display the creativity that is taking place in kitchens all over the city.
Sunday morning, check out the German sausage pop-up Knackig at Mignon downtown. They had us at bottomless mimosas and breakfast brats.
Aww, a miniature week! Isn't it cute? After three glorious days off, an inauguration to remember, and maybe a little loafing around, we're psyched to dive into the week ahead (even if we have to go back to work, BLURGH).
Someone had to pick up the slack after Campanile closed and there was no longer grilled cheese Thursdays. Taste on Melrose has stepped up to the challenge, now serving a special grilled cheese menu every Tuesday.
We've got a big weekend ahead of us -- literally. Three whole days to do whatever we want?! We almost didn't know where to start. Almost.

Don't worry, broke girls, we're feeling more well-adjusted to our non-holiday lifestyle now that we're suddenly halfway through January. What better way to celebrate our new sunny outlook, than to bundle up and take ourselves on the week-long joyride that we deserve?

Fleming's is a wonderful surprise, with its elegant ambiance, style and sophistication. Personal attention and caring service make a visit here something which I will want to repeat often.
There are a couple of weeks before DineLA's restaurant week begins, but participating restaurants in Beverly Hills are currently celebrating California Restaurant Week now through January 13.

We know; it's been a while. It feels like we haven't worked a full week since mid-December. (And, actually, that's more or less true.) But fret not; we assure you that you can make it through the next five days of workplace brutality -- with a little help from yours truly, of course.
Before reality hits hard and we actually have to work a full week again, we're planning on spending the first weekend of lucky 2013 all over town: checking out shows, trying new restaurants and feeding our newly-rested minds with art and movies.
