What to do in NYC this weekend: October 3rd and 4th

New York City is a city that's always moving, with some events that come and some that go -- but often our favorites are the ones that are here today, gone tomorrow. A few of the fun things happening this weekend in NYC are for a few days only, while others last just for this month. Either way, they're opportunities you don't want to miss if you live in the city that never sleeps.

Mackage Pop-Up Shop: Saturday October 3 - March 2016
Premium outerwear and accessories brand Mackage is debuting a pop-up shop this weekend on the Upper East Side. Opening at 1122 Madison Avenue (between 83rd and 84th Streets), the shop will be open for business starting Saturday at 10am. This is a serious opportunity for finding fall staples -- we've got our eyes on the Rubie Crossbody Bag and the Cybil Wool Coat!

Gilt City Warehouse Sale: Saturday October 3 and Sunday October 4
Featuring luxury brands like Balenciaga, Prada, Valentino and Jimmy Choo (all up to 80% off retail!) Gilt New York City is hosting a warehouse sale this weekend, and it's going to be amazing. Who doesn't want to snatch up a gorgeous bag or designer dress at a fraction of the price?

Rise of the Jack o' Lantern: Friday October 2 - Sunday October 25
If you're a big Halloween fan or see yourself as a master pumpkin carver, compare your skills (or learn a thing or two!) at the "pumpkin spectacular" on Long Island. There are over 5,000 hand-carved illuminated jack o'lanterns from professional artists displayed on a 1/3 mile walkabout. This one lasts a little longer, so if you miss it this weekend -- head out there next week!
