The Hugo Boss store in the MePa, as seen from the street
MEATPACKING DISTRICT—Magazines might be cutting back on their holiday celebrations this year, but Details isn't foregoing its annual block party, taking place this Saturday from 12pm to 6pm. Get discounts of up to 30% off at Hugo Boss, Ed Hardy, Puma, Theory, Helmut Lang, Tracy Reese, and other local stalwarts, including Equinox and Spice Market. [Racked Inbox]
PARK SLOPE—If you just can't wait until Saturday to wander around a neighborhood enjoying mild discounts, then head over to Park Slope immediately for the first of this year's "Buy in Brooklyn" Thursdays (the second is next week.) There will be a snow machine, there will be snacks, there will be reusable mugs that make you eligible for free coffee—what more does a Sloper need? [OTBKB, Gowanus Lounge]
