UNION SQUARE—You've probably already heard a lot about Lena Dunham's first book, Not That Kind of Girl—but probably not from the actress herself in person. She'll be at Barnes & Noble tomorrow night starting at 7pm, and you'll need to buy the book in the store to get one of the limited wristbands available for the seated and standing areas. See more information here.
SOHO—Celebrate the launch of the pop-up shop for women's workwear brand Of Mercer (unfortunately, it's not on Mercer Street though). Head over to 345 Broome Street tomorrow between 5pm and 9pm to meet brand founders Dorie Golkin Smith and Emelyn Northway, enjoy tunes from DJ Jules, sip on cocktails, and more. RSVP here before heading over, and check out the full schedule of events for their week-long run.
CHELSEA—Check out the new fall/winter collection from BoConcept and maybe get famous ... or at least get photographed for a special edition of their store catalog. When you're not posing, enjoy complimentary drinks and snacks, and take 10% off any home decor purchases made in store that night. RSVP here before heading over to 144 West 18th Street between 7pm and 8:30pm tomorrow night.
