WEST VILLAGE—Looking to make a new friend (or maybe just a donation)? John Bartlett's West Village eponymous shop is hosting a North Shore Animal League pet adoption event this Saturday, April 17th, from noon to 5pm. Meet cats and kittens, dogs and puppies, as well as some purebred puppy mill rescues. Bartlett himself will be hosting along with his adopted canine children Tiny Tim (the famed three-legged shopdog who inspired Bartlett's logo), Millie, and Huff. [RackedWire]
COOPER SQUARE—It's customer appreciation time at Mina, the retail wing of the Albright Fashion Library, where never-been-worn merchandise from labels like Chloe and Moschino sells at a steep discount. Stop by the storefront, at 32A Cooper Square,
tonight Thursday from 5pm to 9pm or any time tomorrow Friday for even bigger deals. They're taking an additional 10% off any one item and 20% off two or more items if you bring along someone who's never visited the store before. Friday night, they'll also be serving champagne. [Racked Inbox]
