BUY AMERICAN: The go-to for Yale hipsters and prepsters alike, American Apparel has been alive and kickin' in New Haven on Broadway since June and has a whole new line of summer staples and novelties to spruce up your wardrobe for a small price. Check out their new chambray jumpsuit and fringed back mini dress to shake up your wardrobe.
IMPORTANT IMPORTS: Miya's Sushi on Howe Street, just a hop, skip, and a jump away from the New Haven American Apparel, is offering a late night menu from 10-11 p.m. on Thursday, and 10:30 to midnight on Friday and Saturday, featuring $4.75 platters of Bun Lai's innovative sushi and 1/3 off all pitchers - nestled across from another domestic delight, Mamoun's, which will be sans students for the summer, so grab a cramped table and tahini doused falafel pocket while you still can.
