Mara Hoffman, queen of the bikini (and so much more) is kicking off her winter sample sale, offering the opportunity to stock up on all things warm-weather, for a fraction of the regular price. Select swimsuits and beachwear will be marked down 50 to 80%, so you can nab yourself a whole new tropical wardrobe. If you're staying local, we suggest cranking up the heat and donning your new two-piece indoors — if you close your eyes it's almost the same.
When: Friday, December 7, from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m.; Saturday, December 8, from 11 a.m.to 8 p.m.
Where: 168 Bowery (at Delancey Street); no phone.
