LOWER EAST SIDE—Here's a rumor that sounds rather unlikely but hey—who knows? EarthMatters, an organic food market at 177 Ludlow, is vacating its storefront, and Bowery Boogie has heard through the grapevine that either a Gap or Banana Republic might be moving in. Thoughts? [Bowery Boogie]
MIDTOWN WEST—The Cassa Hotel has teamed up with Calypso St. Barth and Milly for a little something called the Fashion Lover's Package for September 5th through the 13th. It's pricey (accommodations are for the Deluxe and Executive suites that are $565 and $615/night), but there's a laundry list of perks for those with the necessary means. First, a manicure, pedicure, and foot scrub at Allure Day Spa, $50 off any purchase of $200 or more at Calypso St. Barth's, and Pink Glove Concierge service at Milly on Madison Avenue during NYFW, plus 15% off full-priced merchandise. There will also be all the wine, fruit, and fashion magazines you can handle; for more info, call 212-302-8700. [RackedWire]
