Daffy’s is celebrating its 50th birthday with a FREE party in the park, with free cake and other goodies. The party starts at 5 p.m., Thursday, September 22nd in Greeley Square, across from the Daffy’s location on 34th St. and Herald Square. You have to ‘like’ Daffy’s Facebook page to RSVP, and after that, you can find out info about the $500 gift card giveaway and other surprises. Here’s a bit of trivia — Daffy’s originally was called Daffy Dan’s, and it’s first store was in New Jersey. In Elizabeth, if I remember correctly. I do remember researching and reporting on Daffy Dan’s a zillion years ago — either — when I was writing the Sales and Bargains column in New York magazine, or as an on-air reporter for WABC-TV Eyewitness News.
