Drake may be holding onto his "no new friends" stance, but we're all about expanding our IRL social networks. Luckily, this week's five events will have you swinging through some pretty cool happenings and seeing fresh faces beyond your go-to gals. From a hangout and styling session with designer Rachel Roy to an all-lady whiskey event (and ticket giveaway!), this week is packed full of reasons to get out there.
Meet Rachel Roy And See Her Fall Faves
Come meet designer and NorCal native Rachel Roy at Macy's this Thursday! The NYC-based lady will be in town, styling looks from her new "The Fall 10" collection, which is filled with her personal, must-have fall essentials (peep them here!). Bonus: She'll be doing so alongside R29's Senior West Coast Editor, Katie Hintz-Zambrano. Free treats, cocktails, tunes, giveaways, a Rachel Rachel Roy jewelry trunk show, and personal styling sessions with the woman of the hour will also be in effect. No RSVP required, just show up with your gaggle of girlfriends! (For those that live further afield, RR will be in Santa Clara on Saturday.)
When: Thursday, October 3, 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: Macy's, 170 O'Farrell Street (between Powell and Stockton streets), Level 3; 415-397-3333.
Women & Whiskies
To provide proof that whiskey is, in fact, sexy and feminine, Lucia Gonzales of Emeryville bar Prizefighter will be pouring the hootch and sharing its boozy facts at Thursday's Women and Whiskies fête. To both cultivate a new reputation for whiskey and get you a little bit merry, this women-only evening of food pairings and Cocktailing 101 will ensure you're never parched of thirst or of enticing info! Sound like your jam? Two lucky readers can win tickets by simply answering this distilled drink question: What is your most beloved whiskey cocktail that can be found in S.F.? Tell us, and you could be on your way (plus a friend) to this spirited event!
When: Thursday, October 3, 6 to 8 p.m.
Where: Wayfare Tavern, 558 Sacremento Street (between Montgomery and Sansome streets); 415-772-9060.
Kurt Geiger Fall Shopping Soirée and Sale
Whether boot season snuck up on you or you've been coveting those saucy over-the-knee versions for months, we all know San Francisco is a city for fall-footwear fans. Kurt Geiger will confirm this with a night at its downtown store to show off the brand's latest collection and offer 20% off purchases.
When: Thursday, October 3, 6 to 9 p.m.
Where: Kurt Geiger, 250 Stockton Street (between Geary and Post streets); 415-399-1170.
Red Wing Trunk Show at Brooks Brothers
Oh, to be a dapper gentleman! With devout followers of the Red Wing cult stomping all around town, we have no doubt that this trunk show will be poppin'. The heritage footwear brand's master tanner Andy Rhein will take the floor to give deets on the fabrication and leathers that make each pair of boots so awe-worthy. Plus, with the purchase of a pair of kicks, a special gift will be yours. It looks like picking between the four exclusive Brooks Brothers styles will be the big decision of the week!
When: Thursday, October 3 and Friday, October 4, 9:30 a.m. to 9 p.m.
Where: Brooks Brothers, 240 Post Street (between Stockton Street and Grant Avenue); 415-402-0476.
Ralph Lauren Pink Pony Event
Since Cancer Awareness Day is just around the corner, a little shopping for a good cause is in order! Join Ralph Lauren and local Breast Cancer Emergency Fund at Macy's in buying a pink pony pin for $5. With this pin, 20% off of the entire store will be yours all night long, with proceeds supporting cancer research, screening, diagnosis, and treatment. If you get a little famished from all the shopping, find your way to the 4th level for delicious goodies.
When: Saturday, October 5, 12 to 9 p.m.
Where: Macy's, 170 O'Farrell Street (between Powell and Stockton streets); 415-397-3333.
