Detox/Retox at the Avalon with Casa Noble
Chill out and refuel with Casa Noble tequila beverages--is there a better way to wind down your Sunday? Head over to the Avalon Beverly Hills between 2-8 p.m. for a pool party--it's a new weekly event that will run Sunday afternoon/evening starting today through Labor Day weekend and showcase a different tequila cocktail ($8) every week. This week it's the Noble Smash (Casa Noble Crystal Tequila, pineapple juice and cranberry juice). Bonus: complimentary valet parking for Detox/Retox guests.

Celebrate Madonna with Swagger
Silver Lake's Swagger is a Sunday destination that offers food, drinks, music and entertainment for a gay/mixed crowd. Tonight they celebrate the Material Girl on her 51st Birthday, and they say that means "it's basically a rule for any gay event to ... holiday, celebrate!" There will be Madonna tunes in the DJ's rotation, and at 6:30 a comedy performance by Luna & Ginsburg (as Madonna and Lourdes). It all happens at Barbarella Bar, 4-11 p.m. (21 and over only, no cover).
