EAST VILLAGE—Recipe for a girls night you can feel good about: manicures, massages, open bar, and support for breast cancer research. Attend Mani-for-a-Cure's spa-themed benefit at Open House to aid in funding for the Triple Negative Breast Cancer Foundation. Sip, snack, and raffle with host 7pm to 10pm Thursday for $90, all in the name of scientific research. Tickets to the event are available here. [Racked Wire]
HARLEM—And now, in mega-retailers keeping it local: Lane Bryant's Harlem location is throwing a shopping party Wednesday from 6pm til 8pm and donating a portion of the night's proceeds to the Apollo Theatre. The event will be hosted by blogger Kellie Brown, and there will be music, treats, and chances to win tickets to the theatre and gift cards to the store. [Racked Wire]
