This week, Perks lets you skip the line at the town's hottest new club (aka Royale) and, for an after-party, gives you a chance at two 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 11, 2010
A Bikini Contest, New Shirts and World Cup Mania
The weekend is rooting for the US. And Paraguay.
Boston has a lot of homegrown hotness, and if you head to Revolution Rock Bar tonight, you'll be able to observe a lot of it, as the Miss Boston 2010 search kicks off this evening with a judged bikini show. While you try not to wear your drink, 12 shapely beauties will try to wear next-to-nothing better than the girl next to her. You deserve this.
Nothing's more fun than laughing at other people's misfortunes (except maybe a citywide bikini contest), so you might want to catch the last night of Mortified Live at the Oberon. Monologues of comically embarrassing moments are read from performers' personal journals, all while you sip cocktails and realize your childhood wasn't so bad after all.

The Comedians of Chelsea Lately at the Wilbur
As a devout follower of E!'s late-night programming, you're probably already familiar with Jo Koy, Whitney Cummings and Chuy—but on the off chance you've missed out, you can check out their stand-up chops this Friday at the Wilbur. Chelsea sends her regards.
To truly embrace the World Cup, you need: a) big-screen TVs, b) a raucous crowd and c) a willingness to drink before noon. Be among the first 2,000 through the doors at the House of Blues tomorrow morning when it opens at 10am, and you can catch the games, rub elbows with the entire New England Revolution team (and those spicy Rev Girls) or just get right to boozing. U-S-A, U-S-A...
Uncle Pete's Takes 30% to 70% Off
Officially, we're in the last throes of spring. For the neighborhood boutique known as Uncle Pete's, that means a little end-of-season cleaning. You can find lightweight jackets and polos from YMC for 30% off, and deeper savings (like 50% to 70%) on fall and winter gear from Rogues Gallery and Rag & Bone.
Stanhope's 12 Stations of Buffet Glory
After your World Cup revelry on Saturday, Sunday may call for a rather large meal. Lucky for you, the Stanhope Grille is unveiling a big, opulent brunch on Sunday, complete with 12 stations of waffles, charcuterie, custom omelets and Sesame Crusted Tuna Loin. This is not a cereal kind of day.
