Seen & Heard: Jennifer Egan

••• A reminder that authors Jennifer Egan (whose A Visit from the Goon Squad is up next for me) and Darin Strauss (Half a Life) are at Pen Parentis‘s next free salon on Sept. 14 at the Libertine at Gild Hall.

••• Today’s deal on Scoop St.: $10 now for a punchcard worth $20 at Chinatown Ice Cream Factory.

••• Euphoria Spa‘s fall special: “Purchase any two IPL packages, two microdermabrasion facials, and 60 minute heaven scent massages and receive one free. Offer valid through October 24, 2010. No expiration for use of the package.” Also: “Have you ever wondered what a ‘dosha’ is? Experience a complimentary 30-minute Sundari facial to determine your own personal dosha during lunch hours at euphoria (12–2 p.m.).” Call 212-925-5925 for an appointment. (I called to find out what a dosha is: I was told that the concept is “based in Ayurvedic philosophy. There are three main dosha types. They incorporate everything about your self, and knowing your dosha type helps you figure out what you should eat, what exercises you should do, skincare, times of day you should be doing certain things. when you learn your dosha type, a lot of things make sense.”)

••• Coming to City Winery: Thomas Ian Nicholas (from American Pie) on Sept. 5; two screenings of Leonard Cohen’s Songs from the Road on Sept. 12; Fran Healy from Travis on Oct. 7; Bob Mould and Lenny Kaye on Nov. 4; Bob Mould and Marshall Crenshaw on Nov. 5.
