Sure, sure — Facebook and Pinterest are fun and all. But haven't you always wanted to be part of a social curation feed that would show you the products, photos, and designs New York's coolest, most talented, and tasteful people were digging on? If Lauren Santo Domingo and Dree Hemingway still haven't responded to your friend requests, click on over to the COOLS and sign up for a unique, addictive social experience that offers the chance to both buy and sell hot, on-trend clothing, home-design pieces, and more. With people like Stephanie LaCava, Anna Sheffield, Agyness Deyn, Adam Green (yes, Adam Green), and dozens more of NYC's leaders in hipness managing their own feeds, it makes Facebook look ever so square.
Oh, and if you want to hang with these cool hunters themselves and enjoy bites from Tacombi, Fat Radish, and Mappamondo while sipping drinks and dancing to tunes spun by Spencer Sweeny at The Old School in Nolita (and, let's face it, who wouldn't?) sign up for the COOLS asap and you'll be RSVPed for the EPIC block party "Jamboree" tonight. Running from 6 p.m. all the way to midnight, it's the perfect occasion for some in-the-flesh friending with the city's cool set — and, surely, it beats any night spent at home with Tumblr, right?
The Old School, 233 Mott Street (at Prince Street); 6 p.m. to midnight.
