MANHATTAN—This Thursday, November 10, Banana Republics around the city will be hosting an "After 5" event. Starting at 5pm, you'll be able to get $25 off purchases of $100 or more while sampling complementary wine from Banana Republic for Clos du Bois. That's right: Banana Republic has a wine collab. See if the vintage suits you at the store's locations at Rockefeller Center, Soho, 59th Street and Lexington Avenue, 34th and Fifth Avenue, and 86th and 3rd Avenue. [Racked Inbox]
