The plush West Village menswear den is doing some seasonal house cleaning with Burkman Bros. shorts for $45, Alexander Olch ties for $35, and all manner of shirts, shoes and pants under a hundred bucks. It's our favorite kind of house cleaning by far.

Vodka Parties, Lobster Rolls and $18 of Chicken and Beer
The weekend is nursing its drink by the AC vent.
That deflation you've been hearing about has finally trickled down to the all-you-can-eat market. Starting this week, $18 will buy you weekday brunch and unlimited cocktails at Bondi Road, or a never-ending supply of Korean fried chicken and beer at K-Town's 3rd Floor Cafe. Time to invest in mimosa derivatives and dark meat futures.
Gramercy's quirkiest Russian bar/restaurant/old lady's apartment is finally unlocking its door, unleashing a torrent of vodka infusions on an otherwise unsuspecting neighborhood. And if you need a chaser...there's always caviar.
If the lines at the Brooklyn Flea were too long for you, your favorite urban crustacean vendors will give you the equipment to make a batch of your own. Forty-five bucks gets you a pound of lobster, a jar of homemade mayo and a pack of those all-important J.J. Nissen buns imported fresh from Maine. And if you feel like adding a little Old Bay to the mixture, it's nobody's business but your own.
The rugged retro revivalists are hosting a four-day blowout with hand-knit cashmere sweaters for $150, selvedge jeans for $60 and enough denim to outfit an exceedingly tasteful rodeo.
