FLATWARE: If you’re like us, your grilling challenges are twofold: One, your outdoor space is negligible, and two, most portable grills are unwieldy to store in your apartment, and fugly to boot. So we fell hard for Direct Designs’ Notebook portable grill: it folds flat (hence the name), and carries like an artist’s portfolio. You might too. $48 at A Plus R.
FAUX REAL: We love a little trompe l’oeil with our footwear: These adorable socks mimic your favorite All-Star hi-tops, but would look wild worn with a pair of strappy heels. $7.99 at treasure trove Modcloth.
DULCE: Sweet-but-tough West Village boutique Sucre is holding its twice-a-year sale through June 30. What’s in it for you: Sample goods from the likes of Thayer, Cheap Monday (mm, jeans), and Current Elliot with discounts up to 80% off the original price. 357 Bleecker Street near Charles Street; 212-352-1640
21 AND UP: This one doesn’t need much of an introduction: Century 21’s just kicked off their 75% off clearance sale. May we suggest leaving work early today to beat the crowds? You’re welcome. Century 21, 22 Cortlandt Street at Church Street; 212-227-90092.
