Little Italy's Igloo has been around for nine years, functioning as a a design studio slash office slash retail store, filled with really well-designed goods—from tees to art prints to useful objects reinterpreted. They've decided to close the doors of the store with a big bash and sale. Party starts this Friday night (Aug. 12) from 6 to 10 p.m. and the sale will continue through the weekend, with doors open noon to 5 p.m. both Saturday and Sunday. DJs Skullcrusher and Eddie Turbo will provide the sounds Friday night. Word is, they've marked stuff down 30 to 50 percent, and there may even be free gifts with purchase—which is a phrase that rarely excites me, but at Igloo it will likely be exceedingly cool stuff.
