ALL OVER—It's just like being a Deadhead, but instead of following Jerry Garcia (yes, we know he's dead) and his magical trail of LSD, you're following Gilt Groupe and the Coolhaus truck, hot on the trail of bargains and free ice cream. Highlights of the conquest include a special stop at the Trina Turk boutique -- Trina herself will be there, and shoppers who show up get 25% off. The truck trek goes this Saturday, from 11am to 5pm; to find out where to get yours follow Coohaus on Twitter. [Racked Inbox]
