Can you sneak out of the office this afternoon? If so, there's a good deal waiting for you at wax studio Shobha—get a Brazillian and a brow shaping for just $75 at any of their locations (Columbus Circle, Midtown, Soho and FiDi), but only if you can get there between 2pm and 4pm today. Consider it mandatory preparation for the last beach weekend of 2014. [Shobha]
