December 4: Love, Holiday Style! (above): Get in the holiday spirit — and cross a few names off the shopping list — at Splash’s bi-annual holiday event. Drop by theWit hotel to shop goods from boutiques like Atelier Azza and Sara Jane, get a beauty treatment, savor drinks and hors d’oeuvres, then head upstairs to ROOF for an after party. A percentage of the proceeds benefit the American Heart Association.
