As much as we love a good Cyber Monday deal, gulping vino while shopping online just doesn't have the same festive effect as indulging in retail therapy IRL while being served a glass of bubbly. If you, too, feed off the cheerful electricity of holiday lights, sounds, and more winter-inspired festivities, you'll want to make your way to West 3rd Street's holiday street party this Saturday, December 1.
The stylish shopping stretch is hosting its annual deal-filled bash from 2 to 6 p.m., when over 50 boutiques, restaurants, fitness studios, and beauty spots will be offering discounts, drinks, and more in-store happenings. That's not all: In addition to scoring deals on womenswear, menswear, kids clothing, home goods, jewelry, and accessories, there'll be plenty of live entertainment to keep spirits merry and bright, including face painting, balloon artists, caricaturists, juggling cyclists, contortionists, strolling puppies, carolers, hip hop elves, and even a character by the name of Hanukkah Harry.
It's worth noting that some residential street parking may be permit-only on weekends, but those intimidated by the thought of stalking metered street spots can relaaaax: There'll be valet stations located throughout the corridor between La Cienega Boulevard and Fairfax Avenue, where all of the action is taking place. Plus, valet will be free with validation from select stores.
Excited? As part of our partnership with our friends at West 3rd Street, all week we'll be sharing gift guides for every type of person on your list—and you can expect to shop all of the chic finds this Saturday at West 3rd Street's stores. Keep your eyes peeled on our site over the next several days; in the meantime, see below for the full flyer and a selection of the festive promos from the cool retail districts' boutiques, beauty and skincare spas, and eateries, then head over to the cool retail district's blog for an updated list of deals to expect this Saturday.
