Tonight: The Hamburger Eyes book is officially out and the hamburgers are having a party for it at their space, The Hamburger Eyes Photo Epicenter. Today is also the anniversary of the space opening and the birthday of the magazine. This party I'm sure will be hella fun. Too bad for me it's in SF. 26 Lilac Street, San Francisco. 5pm. Free.

Friday February 15: Albert Maysles, half of the great documentary filmmaking and brotherly duo responsible for such amazings as Grey Gardens and Gimme Shelter, will be signing copies of his book at Stephen Kasher gallery. I love this guy. Side note: I assisted on a shoot for Kate Spade once and Mr. Maysles was one of the models. He was wonderful to talk to and kept falling asleep everywhere. His book, A Maysles Scrapbook, is full of photos, stills, notes and other writings and accompanies an exhibition of Mr. Maysles photographs at the gallery. Stephen Kasher. 521 W. 23rd St. 6-8pm. Free.


Saturday February 16: A launch party for Habitus magazine's third issue. The theme is Buenos Aires. 2 Obras magazine is co-hosting and making its New York debut. Argentine artists Damian Kaliyeski and Dulce Sturla will have work on display. The Gowanus Studio Space. 119 8th Street, Brooklyn. 8-11. Free.

Also Saturday February 16: This isn't exactly something you can leave your apartment for, but worth mentioning anyway... The online shop for Swedish store Ashtray launches today. They sell books and clothes and cool stuff. I'm looking forward to having a browse.
