TIMES SQUARE—Be one of the first to preview Forever 21's fashion collaboration with the NBA tomorrow, when the store will debut its line of jersey dresses, shorts, and tank tops featuring teams from around the country. The Knicks' own Tim Hardaway Jr. will be on hand to sign autographs, and there will be cupcakes, NBA-themed giveaways, and a DJ to get the party started. Stop by between 6pm and 8pm to see what it's all about. [RackedWire]
EVERYWHERE—As part of Macy's flower show this year, which is "Secret Garden" themed, the department store is giving back to parks across the country. In the city, every dollar you donate at the register goes directly to places like Van Cortlandt Park, Prospect Park, and the Queens Botanical Garden. Shop between the 7th and the 30th to donate.
