LONG ISLAND CITY—Say what you will about LIC, but is any other neighborhood having two wine tastings tonight? Court Square Wines (2420 Jackson Ave) threw open their doors for curious drinkers at 4:30pm and will stay open until 7pm; Hunter's Point Wine (40-07 Vernon Blvd) serves from 6pm until around 8pm. There's also a trunk show with free snacks at local boutique Subdivision (48-18 Vernon Blvd) from 6pm—9pm, so those visiting from other boroughs can make a night of it. [liQcity]
BRYANT PARK—Look, it's a schedule of this fall's Fashion Week! Get excited and/or be very afraid. [COACD]
CHELSEA—It sounds like the set-up to a heist movie: Starting tomorrow and running through Monday, 100 vendors will be selling old-school gems and timepieces as part of the New York Antique Jewelry & Watch Show at the Metropolitan Pavilion (126 W. 18th Street between Sixth and Seventh Avenues.) Expect to see Tiffany, Van Cleef & Arpels, the much-chased Harry Winston and other jewelers of the 19th and 20th centuries. There's also a virtual tour that purports to show you around (thought we keep bumping into the glass-plated countertops). [RackedWire]
