If you’re anything like me, you’re in complete and utter denial that Labor Day weekend has come and gone. If it’s any consolation, there’s a short work week ahead of us. Your social agenda, below.
If you’re in disbelief about summer ending or simply want to extend your Labor Day weekend celebration another day, head to Sky Terrace at Hudson Hotel for an Endless Summer party tonight. Enjoy a rooftop party16 stories above the city with champagne, summer toys, and The Impossible Project (the team behind Insta-film) snapping pictures all night. More information here. 256 W. 58th St. New York, NY 10019
Summer might be over, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still enjoy a picnic. At Picnic by Design, attendees are invited to sip cocktails and wine while enjoying delicious picnic dishes from a variety of NYC restaurants and bidding on one-of-a-kind picnic baskets. Funds raised at this event will help non-profit organizations across the country that are fighting HIV/AIDS. 517 W. 37th St. New York, NY 10018
There’s no time like New York Fashion Week to indulge in some designer shopping.

Most New York Fashion Week events are invite-only and almost impossible to get into if you don’t work in the industry or aren’t a celebrity, but Fashion 360 is making its runway show open to the public so everyone can join in on the fashionable festivities. Enjoy a runway show (you can buy general admission or front row tickets) featuring emerging brands, and then meet the designers and models at the official after party.
