charity-buzz-auction
Whether you're a music lover, an avid foodie, or a fashion-forward fanatic, New York can always hit your sweet spot. Sometimes we take for granted (or forget) that we're the capital of pretty much everything cool. But this week, we got a reminder of just how rad our city really is when we checked out Charitybuzz's amazing website. Charitybuzz, an organization that offer once-in-a-lifetime auctions to raise funds for nonprofits, is giving you the opportunity do everything from hitting a ball with John McEnroe to hosting a private party at Tiffany's, to...uh, meeting Antonio Banderas. Since a ton of their items are NY-centric, we decided to round up the best (and the most questionable) auctions that are up for grabs in the Big A! And with proceeds benefiting several charities, dipping into this month's rent money might be a little easier to justify. So, whether you've got a couple thousand to blow, or you want to get voyeuristic, check out 12 of the current auctions that are still open to bidding.
1. Simon Doonan, the creator of Barney's legendary window displays, is offering a behind the scenes look at how it really goes down, for the oh so reasonable price of only $60,000 (!!??)

3. For all you straight dudes, this is as good as it gets. Enjoy a romantic dinner for two with the man in charge of it all, Brian Cashman. Then head back to his place (the stadium) and watch a home game in the one-and-only Legends Section. Whatta date.
