We've had several citywide celebrations this summer, including the Minneapolis Aquatennial (Minneapolis pride!), the Fringe Fest (theater!), and the Nature Valley Grand Prix (bikes!). This Thursday, it's fashion's turn to take over the town with Fashion's Night Out. For this worldwide event, various boutiques, shops, and department stores will amp up their style quotient with special happenings like makeup demonstrations, freebies, fashion shows, and lots of glamor. Downtown Minneapolis's Macy's (700 Nicollet Mall) will be presenting fall looks with a party featuring mocktails, DJ sets, and giveaways. Martin Patrick 3 (212 Third Ave. N.) will have in-store deals, food, and drinks. Len Druskin Man (651 Nicollet Mall, Gaviidae Common) will be showcasing Wolverine boots while serving beer and food from Butcher and the Boar. Intelligent Nutrients (983 E. Hennepin Ave.) will be offering blow-outs, style consultations, and mini-facials. For a complete list of locations and activities, visit fashionsnightout.com.
