FORT GREENE—If you happen to step inside the Jill Lindsey store tomorrow, you may not recognize where you are—for one day, it'll be transformed into an UZI pop-up store featuring a new line from the brand. The wine bar and backyard, however, will remain the same—it's a lovely way to spend a Saturday.
SOHO—Even if you're not technically friends with or a family member of an employee at Kate Spade Saturday, they're offering 30% off everything in the store all day in-store tomorrow in honor of their Friends and Family Sale.
ASTORIA—Two things that one would assume have little-to-no crossover in everyday life will be joined, gloriously, at the NYC Cupcake Run, tomorrow starting at 11am in Astoria Park. It's exactly what you think: Participants will run five kilometers while stopping to eat three cupcakes along the way. Sensitive stomachs need not enter the race—or watch, for that matter. Head over to Pulsd for more information.
BOERUM HILL—Skip brunch and head over to Steven Alan Optical's annual pancake social from 11am to 2pm, where there'll be Grady's Cold Brew, Shady Acres jam, and naturally, fluffy pancakes. You'll also get 15% off any pair of glasses, which start at $145.
