If you’re not into rubbing elbows with Brooklyn’s indie fashion designers, you still have no excuse to stay home. Tonight (9/8), DUMBO’s BID is sponsoring one of its 1st Thursday free gallery walks on the same night as Fashion’s Night Out. Go nuts at the eight different gallery shows at 111 Front Street alone, featuring eclectic photographs, sculpture, prints, paintings, and free performances. The rest of the galleries are within a three block radius, so there’s no excuse to bow out because of uncomfortable shoes or time-inappropriate drunkenness. Not into ascertaining whether the plaque on the wall actually corresponds to the garbage pile on the floor, and either way, whether you can fish through it? Check out the book launch party for When Parents Text, by Lauren Kaelin and Sophia Fraioli, at powerHouse Arena. You can also explore Fashion’s Night Out at the same time, same radius. Forget negotiating cobblestones in your stilettos in the Meat Packing District, and keep it local for more free booze, swag, sales, and clothing just in time for Fashion Week. Get your dance on, and observe the newest looks to see if half shirts and bellbottoms are here to stay.
