GREENWICH VILLAGE AND THE WEST VILLAGE—In honor of his almost-open (and, apparently, record-breakingly expensive) Bleecker Street store, Michael Kors has been Tweeting about all of his favorite Village locations. Names mentioned so far include Bowlmor Lanes, Knickerbocker Grill, C.O. Bigelow, Gene's Restaurant, A Clean Well-Lighted Place, Mary's Fish Camp, and Three Lives Bookstore. [@MichaelKors/Twitter]
