Scoutmob’s coming to New York today and headed straight for Park Here. The fun-loving mobile guide hooks locals up with deals at places they actually go. And today, Scoutmob’s buying everyone Mimi + Coco NY’s teriyaki balls. From 2-4 pm, come down and snag free Japanese-style city food at 201 Mulberry St. Time Out New York called the pop-up park the #1 Thing to Do This Winter in all of New York, and now Mimi + Coco‘s getting Scoutmobbed. Take your lunch break at Park Here, enjoy the teriyaki poppers for free, the WiFi for free, the Fatboy picnic blankets for free and the free warm weather. Bird-chirping soundtrack costs extra, though. It’s 99 cents a track at the jukebox over in the corner. Past the trees, through the fiction section, somewhere near Narnia.
At 8 pm, Scoutmob comes back to Park Here dressed sharply for a 180 Grados party splashed with Caribbean rum and high fashion. 180 Grados is the Dominican-based NGO that develops local health, education and community infrastructures. They pulled together a Lady Gaga shopping spree worth of pretty items from Brunello Cucinelli, Marc Jacobs, Alexander Wang, Narciso Rodriguez and Jullian Hibbard. Scoutmob is on hand with a free raffle for a $100 dinner at Malecon and 180 Grados is swank with its park party fundraiser that features a photo exhibit and fantastic community-building chatter. Lizzmonade is joining the fun, too, and setting up at Park Here for the evening, too. To attend, visit Eventbrite.
Join more than 7,000 fans on Facebook + Twitter and see the full Park Here lineup featuring free concerts, wine tastings and a dozen local food vendors at ParkHere.info. Or cut straight to the point at 201 Mulberry St. in Nolita. Park Here is open from noon to 8 daily. Spring St. on the 6 train, Broadway-Lafayette on the B,D,F,M.
