    That Number Melissa Barnes of Lotus Just Gave You? Probably Fake For the past year School of Visual Arts student Melissa Barnes has been a server at Lotus. The fashion and design major hasn’t met Jessica Stam there — she says the former hot spot has become “a tourist attraction, basically”—but the club has done something for her budding fashion career. “During Fashion Week Lotus has a bar in the tents,” she says, “So the bartenders that work there make friends with the security people. This year the security guys let us go into some of the shows.” So how does one sneak past the velvet rope at her place of employment? “It’s not hard to get in at all,” Melissa confesses.

    Your Secret, Sneaky Method for Getting Into Singapore DayWe felt altogether flummoxed when we found that this Saturday’s Singapore Day festivities in Central Park, which included a major “hawker center,” filled with Singaporean street-food vendors, was sold out. Singapore is considered home to some of the world’s greatest street food, and it was going to be here in NYC, and we couldn’t get access?
