I really like the Lower East Side. This fun, quirky area is filled with boutiques, restaurants and galleries. See what I mean on Wednesday, September 5th, from 6 to 9 p.m., when the Lower East Side Business Improvement District (LES BID)hosts Lower East Side Opening Night: Art+Fashion, a celebration of opening receptions for many of the 80-plus art galleries found throughout the neighborhood. Opening Night will also have several in-store events, including live music and entertainment, at a number of the Lower East Side retail fashion and accessory boutiques. This free, neighborhood-wide event is a pre-Fashion Week kick-off, in conjunction with the opening to the fall art season. For a list of participating galleries and retailers, click here.
