Synopsis: Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron plays Mavis Gary, a writer of teen literature who returns to her small hometown to relive her glory days and attempt to reclaim her happily married high school sweetheart (Patrick Wilson). When returning home proves more difficult than she thought, Mavis forms an unusual bond with a former classmate (Patton Oswalt) who hasn’t quite gotten over high school, either.
“Young Adult” reunites Jason Reitman, Academy Award© nominated director of “Juno,” and Academy Award© winning screenwriter, Diablo Cody.
Brace yourself, because today marks the launch for GrubHub's Digital Food Festival! Translation: free Restaurant Week.
All fall GrubHub has the hookup to a number of essential New York restaurants; places you simply have to try, places with lineups down the block, and places that don’t normally deliver. On a number of days throughout the season, GrubHub will feature a New York restaurant that will offer a certain number of diners an exclusive entrée. The restaurant designs the dish, GrubHub receives the order, the restaurant makes the dish, and GrubHub delivers it to the diner.
Today enjoy free ice cream from their first restaurant partner, Van Leeuwen Ice Cream. Just use GrubHub.com to order a free scoop of ice cream and pick it up between 12pm and 10pm from either their store (E. Village) or the truck (Little W. 12th and Washington).
• Van Leeuwen (September 21)
• DuMont Burger (September 22)
• Peanut Butter & Co. (September 26)
• Katz’s Delicatessen (September 27)
• Foodswings (September 28)
• H & H Bagels (September 29)

Via NY Social Agenda:
Our friends at Kicking the Spectrum are hosting a fundraiser Thursday that you wont want to miss! To give you a little background check – Kicking the Spectrum is a martial arts inspired program developed to teach and motivate students with special needs. This innovative program incorporates fitness and wellness into the fundamentals of Japanese Shotokan Karate.
Most recently Kicking the Spectrum won a grant courtesy of The Pepsi Refresh Program and to show their sincere thanks to their supporters, they are hosting a Thank You & Fundraiser Event. Please join them for amazing drink specials, free food, raffle for some incredible prizes (including two one night stays at an NYC hotel…staycation, anyone?!) and of course it wouldn’t be a party without some beer pong action!
Time: 5:30pm – 11:30pm
Location: Mad River Bar, 1442 3rd Ave
There will be a $10 cover at the door, which will be donated entirely to charity.
Even during the coldest of months, I never, ever, deny myself ice cream. It can be 12 degrees outside, but if there is a carton of Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough (or Half Baked) in front of me, you'd better believe I will consume it. As it's getting a little chillier outside, and as the Fall kicks off, Cold Stone Creamery is celebrating Make-A-Wish Month, which happens to be September.
On Tuesday, September 27th, they'll be hosting "The World's Largest Ice Cream Social" to benefit the Make-A-Wish Foundation. Between 5-8 pm, customers will be treated with a free sample of their Sprinkled with Wishes™ Creation™ , which consists of Sweet Cream Ice Cream, Brownie, Rainbow Sprinkles and Fudge. You can stop by any Cold Stone Creamery to make a donation any time this month and buying a Make-A-Wish paper star to show your support costs just $1.
If you have not yet noticed, NYC is crawling with fashionistas of all sorts this week. Fashion's Night Out is tonight, and New York Fashion Week has also kicked off at Lincoln Center. The fashion-saavy have come out to play, and even if you don't know consider yourself in the know, there are plenty of fun events that don't require any exclusive invites.
From today until Sept. 15, the Allure Lounge will be open inside the Empire Hotel. Open to the public from 9am-7pm, guests can enjoy free samples, hair & makeup consultations, mini-makeovers, and other goodies.
From time to time, we bring you art gallery openings & parties, but this is definitely unlike anything we've ever brought you before. From September 1-8, visit R.I.P.N.Y.C. for an entirely new experience:
Do you have a dog? Does it only wear duds from vintage stores and thrift shops? Does it wear thick-rimmed glasses...not because they need them but just because? Does it hate anything that is considered "mainstream"? Does it only drink PBR... out of its vintage dog bowl? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you may have a hipster puppy. In which case, it would be perfect for Thursday's Hipster Puppies Pageant.
