Gant Sample Sale

This is basically the men's equivalent of the Christian Louboutin sample sale; in other words, don't be surprised if you spot a line dapper dudes forming in the early hours of the morning, all riled up and raring to go score some serious bargains on Gant's Rugger and Michael Bastian lines. Pants are on sale for a mere $20, shirts are $30 and accessories from $10-$20. Good luck out there, boys.

20 W. 55th St., 11th fl. 8:30-6:30 p.m. Through Nov. 11.






ART

Pia Dehne, "Vanishing Act," Opens at Charles Bank Gallery

German-born, New York-based artist Pia Dehne, who may or may not have briefly tutored us in German back in 2006, presents "Vanishing Act," her latest exhibit, opening tonight at Charles Bank Gallery. Her show features optical illusion-y paintings of hunters, jet fighters, attempting to camouflage themselves in nature. Dehne plays with the idea of foreground, background and hidden identities.

Charles Bank Gallery, 196 Bowery. Opening from 6-8 p.m. Exhibit runs through Dec. 22nd.


COMEDY

Comics to Watch at Carolines On Broadway
