We stopped by Bowery boutique Billy Reid just now to check on their all-day fried chicken giveaway, and we're happy to report that the chicken is sitting in a silver platter on a table in the middle of the store, ready for consumption (and looking very much like our photo illustration, if we do say so ourselves.) The place is not exactly crowded, so if you're in the neighborhood and you'd like some free food, stop by. Two things to note: One, they're also handing out free cocktails, and two, if you plan to shop, save the chicken till after you've touched all the $200 trousers.
