This week, Perks is bringing you some much-needed relaxation, in the form of seven days at a luxury spa for an exclusive VIP price. You might need it—we're also giving you a chance at an hour-long tennis lesson with the legendary John McEnroe, who'll give you tips on everything from charging the net to the proper way to berate a myopic line judge. Yes, we are being serious.
Things to do for June 03, 2010
Open Bars, Sushi Tacos and a Free Massage
The weekend feels like it was just the weekend.
Gratis Rubdowns and Cocktails
Tonight at Segafredo, you'll be greeted as you should be—with complimentary cachaça cocktails and a team of massage therapists from Massages 4 Me, who are ready to annihilate those kinks in your neck. You've been so tense lately.

THE SILENT TYPE
Metropolis at Miami Beach Cinematheque
In case all that sun has awakened a yearning for silent German expressionist film—and it's only natural—the Miami Beach Film Society is screening a remastered version of Fritz Lang's Metropolis, complete with newly unearthed footage. Expect the best combination of robots, sex and utopian politics this side of Transformers 2.
Coral Gables Restaurant Week kicks off Monday, but you'll have the chance to preview the best dishes from all 15 restaurants tomorrow night. In a breezeway between two restos, you'll make your way down the line, trying Grilled Salmon Panang from Red Koi, Szechuan Calamari from Tarpon Bend and Filet Steak Sandwiches from Morton's.
The raw-fish maestros at Sushi Maki are getting in on the Gables generosity. Tomorrow you can catch graffiti artist Erni Vales creating 3-D art (you love origami) while the folks behind the bar ply you with $4.50 Yuz-on-Fire sake cocktails, made with a spicy Japanese pepper called togarashi. And for your stomach, there'll be free grub like crispy pork gyoza and spicy tuna tacos.
50% Off at Lulu Couture
Swanky Bal Harbour shop Lulu Couture has finally made it to the big time: a larger space at the mall. Help lighten their move by scoring 20% off the entire store, including sneaks from Moncler and John Varvatos for Converse, and button-downs from DSquared. There's also a hefty sale rack with 50% to 70% off T-shirts, and we know you like those.
Free Wine and $7 Pizzas at Racks
Racks unveils a crushable promo called Love at First Slice this Monday, where $7 gets you either a coal-oven-prepped Fior Di Latte Pie (made with olive oil, parmigiano-reggiano cheese and basil) or a heaping bowl of linguini, penne or rigatoni. And for the next three Mondays, you'll get a complimentary quartino of wine to go with it. We might be in love.
