COUNTER PROGRAMMING: Park & Bond’s pop-up shop with GQ in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District has been drawing a high-profile crowd with a slew of events planned for its brief span between Dec. 8 and 18. Opening night saw Chace Crawford, Andy Cohen, Nate Berkus, Peter Som, Joseph Altuzarra, Jeff Halmos and Sam Shipley check out the expansive digs at 414 West 14th Street. Over the weekend, Terrell Owens hosted a viewing party for the Jets game, and Jeffrey Jah and David Rabin hosted an event for nearby watering hole The Double Seven in the store. On Wednesday evening, author Tom Perrotta was slated to speak, and on Thursday evening chef Todd English will hold a cooking demonstration and book signing.
John Auerbach, president of Park & Bond, a unit of Gilt Groupe, said top sellers include vintage Rolexes, a Simon Spurr cashmere peacoat, Tie Bar gift sets and Miansai bracelets.
