MIDTOWN EAST—This weekend, hat designer Eugenia Kim will be making an appearance at Henri Bendel. Stop by the department store on Saturday between 10am—8pm to say hello, and also, to customize your own hat. [RackedWire]
EAST VILLAGE—The St. Mark's Bookshop needs help, again. Jeremiah's Vanishing New York heard from the store owners that they're currently struggling to hang in there, and that their credit cards are maxed out and they can't afford to buy new books. Co-owner Bob Contant says they won't be able to stay in the location "unless an angel comes along," or, a cash mob. Swing by the store on Sunday at 1pm, spend $15 on a book, and then head to Bar 82 for a drink. [JVNY]
