GREENPOINT—If you like retro but steampunk isn't your style, skip the Brooklyn Indie Market festival this weekend and go directly to Old Hollywood. The vampy, vintagey boutique holds its opening party from 7pm to 10pm Saturday. While you're there, drop in on nearby Fred Flare: Old Hollywood is just down the street at 110 Meserole Avenue.

MIDTOWN EAST—We're not endorsing this in any way, but tomorrow happens to be Viva Day, the most holy day in the Juicy calendar. At the Fifth Avenue flagship at 52nd Street, they'll be giving out free hand massages and samples of Viva la Juicy lotion. To truly immerse yourself in the faux-fancy teen-girl absurdity, pair this adventure with a trip to the new Sanrio Luxe store on 42nd Street. [Racked Inbox]
