Without local shops, shoppers would buy gifts exclusively from in-flight catalogs, forcing fathers to sneak into airplane-wheel wells on Black Friday to order spy-camera blenders for their children. Enjoy earthbound browsing with today's Groupon to the Shopping Soiree at Hudson Terrace. This Groupon is valid at 7 p.m. on September 20 or 27. Choose from the following options:
- For $12, you get one general-admission ticket (a $25 value).
- For $20, you get two general-admission tickets (a $50 value).
- For $29, you get one VIP ticket (a $61 value).
- For $50, you get two VIP tickets (a $122 value).
VIP ticket holders are allowed early entry beginning at 6 p.m., and a Steve Madden tote stuffed with goodies. Contributing brands include Skinny Water, Pop Chips, Footloose, Kiss Nails, Vitacoco, and Bridesmaid the movie.
The shopping soiree welcomes droves of buyers to Hudson Terrace to peruse vendor stations, sip libations, and experience à la carte spa services. Shoppers can shuffle between merchants showcasing apparel, bags, and jewelry in the bar's spacious 5,000-square-foot room, which is filled with red leather couches, candles, and chandelier-lit wooden floors. Opulent chocolate and cheese hors d'oeuvres fuel consumers for an evening of activities, and five-minute massages grant brief relief from everyday stresses, such as running out of toilet paper. Manicurists from Kiss Nails fasten fake nails to fingertips and grant eyelids the gift of longer lashes, and aestheticians from Skintology execute smoothness-sanctioning waxing services. Everyone in attendance on the 20th is gifted two complimentary tickets to a screening of Footloose on September 21 and an invitation to the after party.
Gift bags vary between the two dates.
