We're heading out a little early, Summer Friday-style. See you Monday!
THE BOWERY—The Cooper Square Hotel kicks off a summer market in its lush new garden tomorrow. Vendors like Tina Thor, Nolita boutique SSUR, and BluePrintCleanse will sell their wares under Shepard Fairey's painting of a Tibetan monk on the 5th Street side of the hotel. Also, look for food from Scott Conant, the celebrity chef behind hotel restaurant Faustina, plus an outdoor bar. [Racked Inbox]
NOLITA—One-pieces: They're everywhere! And while people still seem to be trying to figure out how to pee in them (you just take the whole thing off...right?), that doesn't mean their ubiquity shouldn't be celebrated. Saturday from 5pm to 7pm, Kenmare Street boutique JF & Son throws 21 Jumpsuit, a party in honor of the dress with legs. Watch electro-dance band Psychobuildings play in their own customized rompers, shop the store's collection, and cool down with ices from People's Pops. [The Awl; Racked Inbox]
