5 Things To Know This AM — Nov 15 2012

Here at R29, we're all about fashion, but we're also all for helping those in need — especially the victims of Hurricane Sandy. On November 27 and 28 at the Bowery Hotel, you can attend the Fashion Girls For Humanity sample sale and shop over 100 of your favorite designers to benefit hurricane victms. Tickets are just $5, which we're pretty sure is less than your daily Starbucks. (Fashion Girls for Humanity)
Looking for something different this Friday night? Check out "I Need A Vacation!", a group photo exhibition curated by Jake Sumner and Dean Levin. Artists and photographers contribute their vacay snapshots to discuss what it really means to get away. We have a feeling we'll be booking flights to somewhere tropical afterwards. (ALLDAYEVERYDAY)
Another chance for you to help with the Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort and get your holiday drink is here. On Wednesday, November 21 and Saturday, November 24, you can be part of the Turkey Pubcrawl. Get drink specials at some of NYC's best bars, and tickets start at $1. What's that saying about champagne taste? (Pubcrawls.com)
Ladies, we may not be prime candidates for Movember, but you can still get in on the mustache-themed activities. On November 16, The Great Moustache Ride is hosting a party to raise awareness and benefit the Prostate Cancer Foundation. Tickets are super-affordable, and did we mention you get to rock a fake 'stache for the night? (Host Committee)
By Joy Gryson is holding a sample sale from Monday, November 19 through Wednesday, November 21 from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. We're talking up to 80% off their got-to-have bags.
