Aspen Today... Turks Tomorrow... All For A Steal! Recession-Busting Travel Site for the Jetsetting Fashionista!

Calling all Travelistas! From the group that brought us Gilt, the website dedicated to helping us fill our closets with ridiculously discounted merch, we now have Jetsetter, a slicker version of Gilt for travel. Sweet!

Jetsetter is a members-only site. That means sales are not available to the general public. Membership is completely free and sales have no additional fees. Sales last for two days, or until sold out, and are centered around one particular destination, theme or brand. Users can typically select from a variety of room types at different price points, so every budget can be accommodated. Rates are only good during the sale, so be sure to book before it's over. P.S. Deals found on Jetsetter are not available anywhere else! This is exclusivity to the max!

Now, there is, of course a bit of a catch. Being so new, Jetsetter is not taking on members. If you are a member of Gilt Group, though, you're a member of Jetsetter. And if you're not, I can help with that. Just click on any one of the links above to accept your invitation to Gilt. Once a member you will not only have access to the most marvelous fashions, but the world will be your oyster!

Upcoming Sales: South America, Venice, Italy and the Isle of Mustique. Pure indulgence...

Well, I'm off. The world awaits. Take lots of pictures!

7 For All Mankind Warehouse Sale! What the Heck Else Are You Going to Spend Your Money On?!

Living in New York City is fabulous! One of the best things about it, in addition to the amazing nightlife, restaurants and shopping, New York City is the culture capital of the world.

Admission is free on Saturday, September 26 at nearly 40 museums in our area, including the Rubin Museum, The Cooper Hewitt and The New York Historical Society, just to name a few. And this offer is not reserved to Manhattan alone. No siree! Wherever you are, in whatever borough, Museum Day has a museum for you. What a treat!

Get a Little Culture Under Your Belt! Lincoln Center, Anyone?

Okay, so my rest lasted a little longer than a day. What can I say? I guess I overslept. How can I make it up to you? How about I lull you into forgiveness with the soothing sounds of the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center? I can be forgiven for my absence and you can become a little more couth. Win-win, no?

Here's the deal courtesy of

Enjoy the sweet strains of the CMS well into next year: $55 gets you three concerts of your choice presented by the Chamber Music Society of Lincoln Center (a $120 value). The accomplished artists of CMS range from the most recognized musicians in the world to gifted, emerging young stars. CMS presents chamber music of every instrumentation, style, historical period, and height in its extensive concert season, and today's deal allows you to sample a few.

CMS performances take place in the newly re-opened Alice Tully Hall, which was closed for nearly two years for renovations. Acoustics in the magnificently renovated space are pristine and rich, and carry the intimacy of chamber music—be it a piano sonata for four hands or string quartet for eight hands—to each seat with warmth and clarity. Anthony Tommasini of the New York Times says the 1,087-seat hall is "the most remarkable achievement of the renovation is that the Starr Theater, though not any smaller, now feels intimate and warm." This rare deal gives you the chance to hear some of the world's finest musicians perform in this beautiful new space again and again.

How fantastic is that?! But you have to hurry! This deal expires at midnight. So, now all is forgiven, right? Thanks, I love you, too! Enjoy the concerts and I'll see you tomorrow!

Eat/Shop/Drink/Indulge:: All on the Cheap!

Four day weekend: Four ideas to have a kick-ass mini-holiday in our kick-ass city! Live it up, people!

Eat: If you can't finagle your way into your neighbor's barbecue, the next best thing is a fabulous burger and an ice cold beer. That said make your way into Soho to Shortys.32 for their signature sliders and a beer of the bartender's choosing. These yummy burgers are made with ground short ribs, giving them a richer flavor than most ordinary hamburgers. Couple that with a charred-to-perfection sesame seed brioche from Tom Cat Bakery, and it's easy to see why it’s a hit. And what will this tasty morsel and a icy cold sudsy cost you? Just $12!!! What a bargain, especially when you consider that the burger alone costs $16. YUM! Shorty's.32, 199 Prince Street, 212.375.8275.

Shop: Shopping is great, but shopping for a cause is better. After you meet your friends for brunch, why not stop by the Hog Pit for a little accessorizing. Stock up on accessories and support breast-cancer research at the Hog Pit's jewelry trunk show, featuring discounted designs from Elizabeth Warner's Maasai collection, as well as silver, gold, and gemstone pieces from Laura Mady. Part of the proceeds will go to the Breast Center at St. Vincent's Comprehensive Cancer Center. Sweet! The Hog Pit, 37 W. 26th St., nr. Sixth Ave. (212-604-0092); 12:30–8.

Drink: You'll want to kiss me after this one. It'll be all you can do to contain yourself, watch. Agozar is having a Recession Special every Friday and Saturday night, 10 p.m. to 2 a.m.: All-You-Can-Drink Sangria! All-You-Can-Drink Drafts! All-You-Can-Drink Mojitos! Just $20 per person!!! I tell you the truth. I never lie. Just go to the Agozar page on Citysearch and print out your All-You-Can-Drink coupon (be careful though, there are two. Print the one for 10 p.m. - 2 a.m). P.S. While you're there, grab a bite. Agozar is a full-fledged restaurant. Agozar, 324 Bowery @ Bleecker Street, 347.223.5169.

Indulge: Meander over to Queens for a little free luxury (and isn't that the best kind?) this weekend. Stop by the launch party for new Atina Aqua Mineral product line at Rani Spas. Founder Dr. Rani Thukral will give free consultations, and the store is offering free use of spa services, including massages and waxes, in addition to complimentary refreshments. Seriously? What more can you ask for? I am ooohhhing and aaahhhing as we speak... ;-) Rani Spas, 64-11 108th St., Forest Hills (718-830-0100); 4:30–8:30.
