MIDTOWN—Tommy Bahama has wrapped its incoming Fifth Avenue flagship in yet another beachy barricade. This one includes a launch date for the store, which also houses a restaurant and a bar. The whole complex opens November 17, presumably with tropical drinks for everybody. [RackedWire]
EVERYWHERE—To celebrate their new Chelsea Pumps, Cole Haan is hosting a month's worth of parties at seven different locations. The slogan for it all is #Don'tGoHome, since the shoes are supposed to be comfortable enough to wear during your entire day and through the night. Tonight's event is at Tammy Hall on Orchard Street, and tomorrow's is at Above Allen. To see the full list and sign up, head to their Facebook page. [RackedWire]
