This week, Perks is bringing you half off your next lunch at La Marea. (We're thinking pork belly banh mi sandwiches, but it's your call.) Also: a chance at a batting practice session at Yankee Stadium with some guys named Darryl Strawberry, Doc Gooden, Wade Boggs and Bucky Dent. Go ahead, call your shot.
Things to do for June 17, 2010
50 Beers, Bikini Models and Scotch Cupcakes
The weekend is dominating possession.
Now that Flip Burger Bar is fully operational, there's a new place for you to escape Biscayne Boulevard traffic and refuel on beef patties and 50 types of beer. And every weekday from 11:30am to 4pm during the World Cup, you can watch the games on their flat-screens with a classic burger, hand-cut fries and a draft beer for $10. Which is like $10 per goal.
If you still don't have a Father's Day gift for Pops picked out, we've got an idea for you: six cupcakes made with Ghirardelli chocolate batter and—wait for it—Johnnie Walker Black Label scotch. They'll also throw in a flask-size bottle of Johnnie Walker, if you want. Think of it as a little something to remember the cupcakes by.

The Fine Art of the Courtroom Sketch
Impressionism, realism and postmodernism get all the glory. But drop by the new exhibit at HistoryMiami, and you'll finally learn the subtle nuances behind the beauty of... courtroom art. Shirley Henderson has been diligently Illustrating Justice for the past three decades, from Noriega to Elian Gonzalez. Rumor has it that shading Noriega's upper lip was her greatest challenge.
Bikini Models at the Four Seasons
Excellent news: the Four Seasons is opening their seventh-floor pool deck to non-hotel guests every Saturday, starting this weekend. In addition to $7 cocktails like Italian Lemonade (vodka, limoncello, Pellegrino), they'll be kicking things off with an informal swimwear show. So start practicing your vamping, and don't forget sunscreen.
The beachside resort One Bal Harbour has a new Sunday brunch that we think you'll want to pounce on like an Argentinean striker. It consists of unlimited jumbo shrimp, house-cured salmon and beef tartare, not to mention ocean views from their outdoor patio. And for $10 more, you can keep the mimosas and Bloody Marys coming. Good deal.
If you're looking for a relaxing activity for you and your father on Sunday, the InterContinental's mySpa is offering a free scotch and a free cigar after you and your dad's sports massage and nail-conditioning treatment. As always with father-son outings, we recommend getting separate rooms for the massage.
