Brand-New Perks

This week, Perks is bringing you a vacation, in the form of two round-trip tickets to New York on a private jet. And in case you need something to do while you're there, we're adding 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.

Crazy Eights at Sunset Lounge
DECOMPRESS

Crazy Eights at Sunset Lounge

Tonight you can usher in the weekend by commandeering an oversize bed at the Mondrian's waterfront lounge, ordering up a few new $8 cocktails—we've got our eye on the Sundown Sidecar (cognac, crushed lychees, ginger liquor)—and watching the workweek float away like so many yachts in the bay...

Thu-Fri, 6-9pm, Mondrian, 1100 West Ave, 305-514-1941

Marlins Mermaids at MI-VI
PINUP

Marlins Mermaids at MI-VI

You've long admired the beauty, majesty and grace of the Marlins Mermaids, and now is your chance to get a little closer to all that talent. The girls will be touching down at MI-VI tonight, promoting their new calendar, strutting the catwalk and showing off a few of their hottest moves. Ah, baseball cheerleaders...

Jun 11, 9pm-midnight, MI-VI, 901 S Federal Hwy, 954-457-6464

Discounted Japanese Streetwear

Billed as a "street fashion brand for intellectual slackers," WeAretheSuperlativeConspiracy (WeSC) is holding a sample sale on the outskirts of Little Haiti tomorrow. This is your opportunity to stock up on Asian-inspired tees, hoodies and slim denim pants priced at $10 to $120—and, more importantly, sip gratis pisco cocktails.

Jun 12, 1-6pm, WeSC, 7230 NW Miami Ct

Cheap, Late-Night Pasta and Flan
MUNCHIES

Cheap, Late-Night Pasta and Flan

The next time the urge hits you for Italian food at 11pm (so healthy), you'll want to direct your chauffeur to Prima Pasta. Their new late-night happy hour gets you beef filet Carpaccio for $6.48 and chicken parmigiana for $9.50. Along with cheesecake and flan for $4. Nothing beats a pasta nightcap.

Claire Fontaine at MoCA NoMi

LA FONTAINE

Claire Fontaine at MoCA NoMi

There's nothing like crazy art. In the case of Claire Fontaine (the stage name for a whole squad of equally crazy—and, naturally, French—artists), that means tennis balls filled with batteries, quarters that contain razor blades and a sizable piece of a sawed-off shotgun. We're amazed they got it across the border.

Sunday
Rooftop Barbecue at Red
KABOBS

Rooftop Barbecue at Red

There's something awesome about feasting on platters of grilled meat as the sun slowly sets on the best weekend of your life. Red knows this, which is why they're rolling out a rooftop BBQ where you can sip $7 Torched Cherry Mojitos and $5 beers, and eat prime filet kabobs, dry-rubbed baby back ribs and skewers of citrus-chili marinated shrimp. This is why roofs were invented.
