This Week’s Top Story
Luxury Garage Sale (luxurygaragesale.com) hosts its Warehouse Sale October 5 and 6 at 329 West 18th Street. Staffers promise the “deepest markdowns ever” on more than 10,000 items from top designers like Valentino, Chanel, YSL, and Prada. How deep are the discounts, exactly? Nothing will ring in at over $250, and some items will go for as low as $10.
Deals this good might cause a little frenzy, so here are some practical tips to help you come prepared: There’s no parking on-site, so you may want to rideshare or take public transportation. And, both cash and credit cards will be accepted.

WOLFPOINT (wolfpoint.co), the local watch brand, has launched a new collection called Horwen.

Stick around for a disco dance party — and for the specialty punch.
Health & Beauty
The local Yoga Six studios have undergone a rebranding, and are now known as Yoga Squad (various locations, yogasquad.com). According to regional manager Sara Nash, the name change reflects “an effort to be a little more local and connected to who we are at heart: a community of yogis based right here in the Midwest.”
At the chain — which Nash describes as a “vibrant Vinyasa yoga studio” — classes focus on heated power yoga, hot yoga, non-heated Vinyasa flow, and yoga sculpt. And for beginners, deep-stretch and entry-level classes are on the schedule throughout the week. Speaking of new yogis, the studio offers a $20 intro week to all new students; find out more here.
The Equinox Pop-Up at Box Shops by Related (725 W. Randolph St., equinox.com) hosts a lounge in conjunction with the Chicago Marathon on October 7. Open to the public from 6 a.m. to 3 p.m., the free activation offers services geared at runners; think foam-rolling, leg-compression boots, and mini massages. There will also be healthy brunch snacks and sips. Register here.
