This week, Perks is giving you 10 days of yachting at a fraction of the cost, and bringing you and three friends to meet none other than Joel McHale on the set of The Soup. Assuming all that comic genius can fit in one studio.
Things to do for June 24, 2010
Tequila Milkshakes, Atlantic City and Swedes
The weekend is taking off the blinders.
Life Imitates Art Imitating James Franco
As far as shock value goes, seeing Kirk and Spock depicted in art as lovers rates pretty high—especially coming from the lens of none other than James Franco, whose first solo art show opens today. And since Franco also happens to play a rogue artist on the soap opera General Hospital, we might be staring at the first instance of art imitating soap opera.
50% Off at Rag & Bone
You may be tempted by R&B's quasi-militaristic jackets, but summer is all about getting back to some denim and tee basics. Score both for half off today. And then bask in the humidity. Or at least deal with it handsomely.
75% Off Rogan and Loomstate
Poolside cabana lounging is no excuse to forgo style. Loomstate's breezy tees and Rogan's lightweight shorts speak summertime, and both brands are 75% off today. A good excuse to stock up. Because you never know who might walk into your cabana.

Northside Festival Brings You to Brooklyn
This weekend's Northside Festival brings together a solid lineup of cutting-edge creative types touting their... creativity. There will even be a shuttle from the Bedford L stop to the main stage, a former barge terminal. That's so Brooklyn of them.
Summer is to be perpetually celebrated. But if you lived through six months of harrowing Swedish darkness, you deserve more. And by more, we mean a Midsummer celebration of Scandinavian proportions—at 11 in the morning. Think meatballs, schnapps, herring, and lots and lots of white sundresses.
Your brunch omelet and Bloody Mary is a reliable Saturday-morning date, but sometimes your mood calls for something a little more... spicy. Saturday's new brunch includes a black truffle and pico de gallo omelet and frozen Mexican coffee with tequila. Which is actually more like a tequila milkshake. Which is like having dessert for brunch. Which is what Saturdays are all about.
Poolside Partying in Atlantic City
Pool parties tend to be daytime affairs, but Borgata has devised an ingenious scheme for keeping you in Atlantic City for a third night. We're talking a sunset party at its Water Club with all the DJs, fist pumping and gourmet popsicles (sold by a 1920s-style cigarette girl) you can handle. We realize that's a lot of popsicles.
