    Scoop up a Gucci handbag or two -- or just sip cocktails and admire the merch -- at Saks' Gucci trunk show.

    CLUTCHY: Know what would go really well with this recession? A Gucci Handbags Trunk Show at Saks. Maybe they have a layaway plan like at P.C. Richard. (They will be serving complimentary cocktails.) 6-8PM.

    ASK THE EXPERTS: WIRED mag swarms the New York Public Library with a timely talk called Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy. On the panel, folks like Obama-drawer Shepard Fairey and the founder of Creative Commons discuss the challenges ahead. ("Hybrid economy"? Is that a euphemism for "in the crapper"?) 7PM.

    MAKE IT WORK: Tim Gunn cohosts (with Barneys' Simon Doonan) the 21st Annual Bailey House Auction and Party to raise money for housing for those afflicted with HIV/AIDS. Tickets may star at $250, but did we mention you can win lunch with Anderson Cooper? Roseland Ballroom, 7PM.
