Rodarte's shoe and glove sale today might be more closely guarded than a White House state dinner. RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org, and you'll be given a time and a location—even the neighborhood is supposed to stay hidden. Nothing escapes Madison Avenue Spy, though, and late last night she spilled the beans. The sale's taking place at new Garment District hotspot the Ace Hotel, 20 W. 29th Street between Fifth and Broadway, which means you can sit around drinking Stumptown coffee and feeling incredibly hip while you wait for your appointment.
