GREENPOINT—To help you answer the age-old question of whether you can shop your way out of the consequences of a night of hard partying, In God We Trust is hosting a Holiday Hangover party at its Greenpoint store on Sunday from 1pm to 6pm. Party games include jewelry and belt customization and a holiday photo slam. In addition, women's clothing is 20% off. And just in case the shopping doesn't cure your pounding headache, snacks and more drinks will be served. [RackedWire]

EVERYWHERE—Need help tricking friends visiting you from out of town into thinking that you know all the cool things going on in New York? City Notes, a new series of iPhone travel guide apps, might be able to help. They'll point you to new and interesting non-touristy things going on in your city, so that you can pretend you haven't spent the last two years siting on your couch watching Sons of Anarchy on Netflix, seasons at a time. The first one, the New York City Holiday guide, is now available on iTunes. [RackedWire]
