5 Things To Know This A.M. — Aug 26 2013

This fall, Rent the Runway is partnering with L’Oréal Paris in a marketing campaign across college campuses. We're talking free samples and the potential to scour internships with both companies. Now that's a back-to-school activity we can support! (WWD)
On August 29, Brooklyn Kitchen will host a Barn Raising to benefit Cayuga Pure Organics. There will be snacks from Gramercy Tavern, beer from Newburgh Brewery, and signature cocktails from the Clover Club. Tickets are $75 for this local flavor fest. (Brooklyn Kitchen)
Feeling adventurous in your beauty regiment? To celebrate National Honey Month, the Guerlain Spa at the Waldorf Astoria will be providing Milk, Haute Honey, and Rooftop Herbs manicures and pedicures. Apparently, the new treatment relies on the honey from the six beehives on the hotel's rooftop. We feel bad for the spa specialist who has to go source the materials for this one. (Racked)
September is National Yoga Month, and Pure Yoga is offering free classes to celebrate from Monday, September 9 through Friday, September 13. Check out the schedule and sign up for some complimentary zen (especially if you'll be hitting up the ever-stressful Fashion Week). (Pure Yoga) Tonight, head uptown to check out the Battle of the Bars at Harlem Tavern, where one bartender will take home the title of the best mixologist above 100th Street. (NY Daily News)
