Weekend Picks just popped up in your inbox, when another amazing brunch/event/sale/cool thing shows up in Lei Chic's e-mail. Selfishly, we don't mind missing the crowds, but it does seem unfair to keep it from you. So starting today, Lei Chic will be sending you a quick round up of late picks, including all the sales, to muse over your Saturday coffee. Cheers!
