Spend Your Lunch Break With Pierre Hardy (Like, Leave Right Now)

Sure, dining al desk-o is all well and good, but wouldn't you rather be passing your midday hour adding to your shoe collection? Sneak out of the office and head to Saks, where high heel designer extraordinaire Pierre Hardy will be showing off his newest styles, and meeting with all the lucky customers (and signing stilettos!). You'll be able to browse the fall '12 collection, and get footwear advice from the big man himself. And, Saks will donate 10% of the event's sales to the Madison Square Boys and Girls Club. The bash starts at 1 p.m., so crank out one last email and sneak on out.
When: Wednesday, September 5, from 1 to 2 p.m.
Where: Saks Fifth Avenue, 611 Fifth Avenue (between 49th and 50th streets); 212-753-4000.
