This week, Perks brings you to the seat of truthiness with two exclusive VIP tickets to a taping of The Colbert Report. If you were looking for an excuse to buy a pet eagle, this is it.
Things to do for June 10, 2010
Big Sales, Pimm's Cups and Playboy Bunnies
The weekend is your group of death.
As of this moment, you can find plaid button-downs from Steven Alan in an old Hollywood warehouse—shirts are going for $68 (instead of $168), and Generic Surplus shoes are just $25. If you cancel your afternoon meeting now, you'll have something new to wear when it's rescheduled.
But if you prefer your sales with $1 tacos, a DJ and happy hour pricing on margaritas, make your way to the covert new second floor of Malo this evening for up to 75% off summer-friendly goods from labels like Fortunate Sun and Riviera Club. You've always wanted to chase your tequila with a linen shirt.

Henry Leutwyler's upcoming Neverland Lost offers up surprisingly intimate snaps of the King of Pop's most personal artifacts—and tonight in West Hollywood, you'll get a chance to see those shots in person, along with a little wine and a crowd of fellow MJ enthusiasts. Time to practice your moonwalk.
For one night only, Hollywood's most trapeze-friendly nightclub becomes the LA outpost of a 50-city party celebrating 50 years of the Playboy bunny. There will be Playmates, and there will be skimpy bunny costumes. You, of course, will be attending for the articles.
The famed wine tastings at Barnsdall Art Park are back for another summer, and you'll still find Silver Lake Wine doing the pouring, Coolhaus ice cream sandwiches doing the cooling, and Let's Be Frank hot dogs doing the fueling. But this year you have to buy your tickets in advance, because a wine-hot dog-ice cream trifecta tends to draw a crowd.
No matter who triumphs in Saturday's US-vs.-England World Cup showdown, Waterloo & City will move forward with a new, very English brunch starting Sunday, head held high. Think Roast Beef Yorkshire Puddings, The Full English (complete with baked beans) and Pimm's Cups. Plenty of Pimm's Cups.
