PERKS

Brand-New Perks

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.

Steven Alan Sample Sale
SALE-ING

Steven Alan Sample Sale

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.

Cheap Shirts in a Mexican Restaurant

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.

A Tour Through Neverland Ranch

MAGIC KINGDOM

A Tour Through Neverland Ranch

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.

411: Jun 10, 6-8pm, M+B Gallery, 612 N Almont Dr, 310-550-0050

Playboy Party at Playhouse
BUNNIES

Playboy Party at Playhouse

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.

Jun 10, 10pm-4am, $20, Playhouse, 6506 Hollywood Blvd, Hollywood, 323-656-4800, RSVP here

Friday
Wine, Hot Dogs and Architecture
SIPPING

Wine, Hot Dogs and Architecture

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.

Fridays, 5:30-8:30pm, $20 ($35 with Hollyhock House guided tour), 4814 Hollywood Blvd, tickets here

Sunday
Liquid Brunch at Waterloo & City
PIMM'S CUPS

Liquid Brunch at Waterloo & City

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.

Starts Jun 13, Sat-Sun, 10am-3pm, Waterloo & City, 12517 Washington Blvd, Culver City, 310-391-4222
