SOHO, WEST VILLAGE—We're a bit late on this, but we didn't want to ignore it entirely: Crumpler's Beer for Bags event is going on now through Sunday June 17th. For the unfamiliar, the deal is: buy a bunch of beer, bring it in, and get a free bag. The store then throws a massive party with all the booze they've collected. [Crumpler]
SOHO—News of the shuttering of neighborhood fixture Dom's Fine Foods, the Italian grocery at 202 Lafayette Street, broke a few days ago. Apparently, now the store's clearing house with a massive sale. From a reader, "dom's on lafayette closes its current location at the end of the month. Everything is 2 for 1 (well, not cheese or ice cream). Some great deals to be had on vinegar, sauces, olive oils and pasta. They had a ton of nutella there yesterday." [RackedWire Inbox]
