Oh weekend, how I’ve missed thee

4040111047_159afa5540_mWeekends just don’t come around quickly enough. To celebrate the coming of this weekend, here are some events to consider:

Friday: Harveys, purveyors of fancy seat belt hand bags, is continuing its search for the most arty of designs to feature in its Melrose Avenue store and to feature on one of its bags. From 7:00 p.m. to 10:00 p.m., stop by the store to help narrow the entries down from 10 to three. Hot dogs, party punch and raffles will sustain you through what promises to be an arduous voting process.

Saturday: D.O.G. pet boutique on La Cienega in West Hollywood is hosting a custom jewelry event for your furry friends. Bring you four-legged friend to the Bling Your Bitch event (not the best name, I know) between 11:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. to check out the myriad charms, crystals and pearls available to create your own doggie jewelry, which can be coordinated to some you make for yourself, too. Prices start at $12 for the Gems4Paws-designed bling. Oh, and there’s champagne!

Sunday: The 23rd Annual Great Chefs of Los Angeles is themed “Go Green, Go Organic” and will feature more than 30 L.A.-area chefs and their food, including the Dragos, Benjamin Ford, Mary Sue Milliken, Susan Feniger, Neal Fraser and Akasha Richmond. Enjoy all the food and alcohol you can handle from 12:00 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. at CBS Studio Center in Studio City. There will also be auctions to benefit the National Kidney Foundation of Southern California. Tickets are $150, but you can get them for $75 through Goldstar.

And if you haven’t had enough, stop by Stinkers Truck Stop‘s one-year anniversary party. The oh-so-ironic Silver Lake bar will be having drink specials, a DJ and swag giveaways from 7:00 p.m. to 2:00 a.m. Because you need to close out the weekend right.

Pet product review: Bamboo’s disposable waste bag dispenser

Sushi and Zelmo

Sushi and Zelmo

This is the inaugural post for ShopEatSleep: Pet Edition. I’m going to be doing my best to feature news on pet products, pet-friendly hotels, pet stores, pet food…You get the picture. I’m the proud owner of two adorable pugs, Sushi and Zelmo (that’s Sushi in the samurai hat on my About page), and I’m sure many of you have your own pet buddies (or babies, whatever you prefer) you like to shop for and travel with and whatnot.

That said, this is my review of Bamboo’s disposable waste bag dispenser. It’s the kind of poop bag holder that clips onto a dog’s leash or your belt loop. Bamboo’s come in a stylish white with either pink, blue or green bags de-odorized with Arm & Hammer baking soda and scented lavender — a very nice touch. And the bags are much bigger (longer) than the Bags on Board brand bags, which would be good if you have a big dog.
