1. Bonnie and Clyde at Bryant Park—This classic Hollywood heist has never looked so good. The lawn opens at 5:00 p.m. on the 23rd for blankets and picnicking, and the film begins at sunset (typically between 8 and 9 p.m.). We recommend bringing your own Warren Beatty. (NYC)
2. Ra Ra Riot Record Release Party—Celebrate Ra Ra Riot's new album, The Orchard, at the Brooklyn Bowl Tuesday, August 24, the same day it's available in stores. We'll Rah, Rah, Sis Koom Bah to that! (NYC/Everywhere)
3. Grand Central Dining Week —Through the 29th of August, the beautiful Grand Central Terminal becomes more than just a place of impatient commuters as the very first Grand Central Terminal Dining Week kicks off on the 20th. The selection will feature prix-fixe menus, to-go meals, and discounts from a selection of food retailers and restaurants in the Terminal. (NYC)

4. Jean-Michel Basquiat: The Radiant Child—The documentary about one of art's most enigmatic artists premieres at Landmark's Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles for a one-week series of speakers and screenings. (LA)
5. Sophomore Sample Sale—You already know we love Chrissie Miller, but now we love her even more—her line, Sophomore, is having a sample sale at Court in Nolita with prices up to 80% off. See you there! (NYC)
6. Highwater—Even if you're not a surf-buff, this movie, opening Friday, will suck you in and spit you out (in a good way) like the surfers it documents. We guarantee you'll get swept up as the board masters compete in the Triple Crown tournament in Oahu. The man-candy ain't bad either. (Everywhere)
7. C'H'C'M' Pop-Up Shop—This Sunday and next, this online shop is getting brick-and-mortared with a temp space in Fort Greene. Tell your dudes to stop by for a sick selection of all-American, classic-with-an-edge duds that will last forever. (NYC)
8. Comedy in a Minor Key—Out Friday, the first ever English translation of Hans Keilson's epic 1947 novel will haunt and captivate you with spare language that describes a chilling tale—a Dutch couple hiding a Jewish perfumer in the Nazi-occupied Netherlands. Why it took so long to cross the Atlantic, we don't know, but we're sure glad it did. (Everywhere)
9. Wilhelmina Fashion's Night Out Casting Call: If you've dreamed of headlining a major campaign, or just like shiny things, Swarovski is giving you a chance to get in on the model madness with out talking to Tyra. Email swarovski@wilhelmina.com for a chance to participate in a live casting call at their Rockefeller center store. Don't forget to smize! (Everywhere/NYC)
10. Matt Bernson Party At Scoop—Thursday is the new Friday, so if you're looking to get your party on, stop by Scoop's West Village bash (from 6 to 8 p.m.) hosted by shoe-designer Matt Bernson. The coolest part? Emerging recording artist Tamar Kaprelian will be performing songs from her upcoming Interscope album—you can say you heard her first! (NYC)
