Burlesque Hula-Hooping at Coco

You didn’t plan on taking part in Friday’s national shopping conspiracy known as Fashion’s Night Out. And then Coco de Mer chimed in with a sex-shop party featuring a burlesque hula-hoop dancer. Plus, they’ve stocked up on gratis vodka, and if you mention UD, everything is 10% off.

An Art Show That Keeps Summer Alive

Sunny weather disappeared this week, but you can hold on to an endless summer at M+B, where Italian photog Massimo Vitali will debut giant photos of beaches and glittering pools overstuffed with festive Europeans. You’ll also be festive, because there’s free wine.

Martinis at a Pop-Up Pickle Shop

The ominous-sounding kitchen ladies known as Chicks with Knives have concocted a pickle party. Show up Sunday morning, and you can behold jars of pickled squash, pickled Asian pears and, of course, bacon jam. While you peruse, they’ll be passing you Pickle-Barrel Martinis. Your move, Vlasic.
