UPWORTHY

Two Very Significant New Rooftops

For views of the skyline: Ascend to Sonny’s Soda Shoppe (pictured), which has a) replaced Soaked at Mondrian SoHo, and b) spiked gelato floats and pizza. Call it an upgrade.
For views of the beautiful people: Proceed to the Jane Rooftop, which no longer requires a membership for admission.

UD - The New Leather Capital of Nolita

WHERE THERE’S A WILL

The New Leather Capital of Nolita

Oregon’s Will Leather Goods just set up shop in Nolita. And by “set up shop,” we mean turned a store into a Douglas fir barn and filled it with bags, belts and shoes that’ll outlast your grandkids. Which actually seems kind of morbid now that we’ve said it.

Now open, Will Leather Goods, 29 Prince St (at Mott), 212-925-2824

UD - If Jimi, Elvis and Gaga Had a Yard Sale

LAST AUCTION HERO

If Jimi, Elvis and Gaga Had a Yard Sale

Reasons you’d visit Times Square on a Saturday:
1) To play Hendrix’s first guitar.
2) To drive away in Lady Gaga’s Rolls-Royce.
3) To try on Elvis’s old jumpsuit.
4) Because there’s an auction at the Hard Rock Cafe involving all of the above.
Guess there’s a first time for everything...

May 17, Julien’s Music Icons: Legends and Rebels Auction at the Hard Rock Cafe, 1501 Broadway (at 43rd), 212-343-3355
