Ankles aching from those Acnes? Mind reeling from all the small talk? Eyes bleeding from all those looks? Instead of waiting for nightfall to indulge in free, mind-erasing booze, find peace and diversion from all of your self-inflicted (and trendy) agony at some of these temporary pop-ups, meant to cure the neuroses of the fashionable masses during New York Fashion Week.

The artists will be sketching fashionable folk and locals looking for a quick retreat—and treat: those sketched will be able to keep their piece of art. When: February 9th – February 17th, 1:30PM-6:30PM Location: The Living Room at the W Union Square

image Park Here: Pop-Up Park The DL: This retreat is for everyone sick of the oil-slicked slush covering every curb. Enjoy a bit of indoor springtime with an artificial indoor park brought to Manhattanites by Openhouse Gallery. I visited on a recent night when Urban Daddy and Nobu hosted an indoor movie screening of Kung Fu Panda, but anyone can go daily for just a buck. Bring your own picnic, or pick out lunch from the gourmet food carts. When: Open daily from 11AM-6PM until February 13th Location: 201 Mulberry Street
