Paul Smith, 75% Off. Yep.
There’s a suit out there. An incredibly dapper British suit. And it’s lonely. It’s just sitting there in SoHo, waiting to be appreciated. Waiting to be put on. Waiting for you. It’s at the Paul Smith sample sale. Don’t let it down.
Wu-Tang and Beer on a Brooklyn Rooftop
Well, this is intriguing: there’s a pop-up gallery of Wu-Tang-inspired mixed-media art happening Saturday. And this might make it intriguing-er: it’s happening on a rooftop and there’s a beer tasting. The whole shebang’s called Meat MRKT, and it’s for the children.
Chicane desperately wants to show you how good they are at making brioche french toast. In fact, they started an entire brunch operation to do so. The toast comes with blueberries and kiwi-Chartreuse jam, and will doubtless attract smoky-eyed French expats yearning for a cigarette. Brioche has that effect on ’em.

If you like beer outside: You can say yes just this once to going to Kips Bay, where Albion (from the Drop Off Service guys) now exists.
