"TRON" POP-UP OPENS: That pop-ups are popping up ahead of the holidays, much like the crocus in springtime, isn't news, of course. But when the pop-up sends you into a lit-up, arcade-esoteric world, well then. We want to light-cycle-it right over to Royal/T in Culver City and check out all the "TRON"-wear and goods. If we're really cool, and we hope we might be, we'll wear the cyber clothes to go see the film next month.
LA AUTO SHOW OPENS: You don't need to rush to get to this carstravaganza at the Los Angeles Convention Center; but closing time tonight is late -- 10 p.m. -- and you'll be one of the first in town to see the newest machines. Figure you can brag all weekend to your fender-mad friends. If you can't make it, get an eyeful of the gleamy goodness now.
