FLATIRON—The Free People store is celebrating Earth Day with a book launch party for Stacy Stowers' Eat Raw, Not Cooked, featuring samples of her all-natural sweets and cocktails. The first 50 people in attendance will receive a gratis signed copy of the book and a tote bag. The event starts at 5pm.
UPPER EAST SIDE—Join David Burke and Donna Karan at the designer's Madison Avenue store for a night of shopping and light bites, culled from the chef's latest menu—think crab cake truffles and pastrami salmon sticks. A percentage of the proceeds from clothing purchased that night will benefit City Harvest, which donates leftover restaurant food to locals in need. Stop by between 6pm and 8pm tomorrow to enjoy.
MIDTOWN WEST—Though it's a little ways off, Norma Kamali is hosting a one-day vintage sample sale on May 1.
