Though the celebrations have quieted down and the long weekend is behind us, our excitement level remains on the up-and-up as we look forward to what this week holds. Free gelato, designer sales, and boat cruises (to name a few) have us holding our heads high. Indeed, you should be amped for the second week of July.

Grab SO many marked-down markdowns.
Century21 is hosting a summer clearance sale and slashing its already-reduced prices up to 75% off. Taking place both in stores and online (plus free shipping on all orders of $99 or more), this sale is NOT to be missed.
When: Now.
Where: Online and at all Century21 locations.


Embark on a Riesling cruise.
Imagine you're cruising on a yacht around New York Harbor. The wind is in your hair. Music by Black Taxi and DJ Andrew Devlon is playing in the background. You have a bottomless glass of Riesling in your hand. Sound too good to be true? Well, it's happening! Let the Summer Of Riesling begin.

When: Tuesday, July 8, 7:30 p.m.
Where: 2430 FDR Drive (at 23rd Street).
Tickets: $45.

Scoop up some free gelato.
Gelateria Amorino has opened a second location in Chelsea. And, what better way to celebrate than with the happiest of happy hours, offering free scoops of gelato to all who visit. Bourbon vanilla, calamansi, stracciatella (not to mention the myriad other flavors available). Which will you pick? Or, perhaps you prefer a macaron sandwich: a spoonful of gelato or sorbet served between two almond shells. Ah, or maybe both? When: Wednesday, July 9, 4 to 7 p.m.
Where: Gelateria Amorino, 162 Eighth Avenue (at 18th Street); 212-255-6471.

Join a club.
Sure, the gym has machines and free weights and classes, but summer weather makes exercising indoors feel like a waste of the bright sun and cool breeze. So, why not run outdoors instead? Lolë is hosting a run club every Wednesday to get you moving through the neighborhood. Now you're going somewhere.

When: Wednesdays, July 9 to September 24, 6:15 p.m.
Where: Meet at Lolë Atelier, 112 Mercer Street (between Prince and Spring streets); 212-226-6820.
Pick up a new habit.
CFDA and MyHabit have teamed up to offer items from over 50 CFDA designers up to 60% off retail. Exclusive Q&As will accompany the large selection of products from Alexander Wang, Carolina Herrera, Marc Jacobs, Marchesa, Prabal Gurung, and more. The profits will benefit CFDA's charitable initiatives.
When: Starting Wednesday, July 9.
Where: Online at MyHabit.
