Here's a way to clean out your closets and drink yourself under the table all at the same time.
On the first Wednesday of the month, Around the Corner
bar in Lakewood hosts a swap meet of clothes and accessories. If you pony up $10 for a display table, you can spread around your hand-me-downs and invite other swappers to pick through them. Meanwhile, you can walk around and take home whatever tickles your fancy. Whatever is left on the tables at the end of the night is donated to Dress for Success
, a charity for women in need of business attire for job interviews.
The next swap is on December 6 from 7 p.m. But check your hair and make-up beforehand. Rumor has it that the production from ABC's Good Morning America is going to be there. -- Cris Glaser
