MIDTOWN EAST—The little plastic doll known as Victoria Beckham will be at Saks on Thursday to celebrate the launch of her denim line dVb. A salesperson was unsure if Victoria would be doling out autographs, but confirmed that she would definitely be there, in all her skinny, tanned glory, from 5 to 6pm. [Denimology]
INWOOD—Uptown residents are gaining another coffee shop, but dashing the hopes of many, it will not be a Starbucks. Instead, they can look forward to brews from locally-owned chain Cafe Expresso. [Inwoodite via]
SOHO—In case you haven't glanced at a calender recently, Father's Day is this coming Sunday. If, like us, you still need to purchase a gift for your dad, the Jack Spade store at 56 Greene Street will be selling fifties-era ties as well as other manly vintage accouterments Friday through Sunday from noon to 5pm daily. The neckwear is from the personal collection of Spade's publicist Mordechai Rubinstein. Hey, it's better than a monogrammed beer cozy or another ironic t-shirt. [Men.Style.Com]
