This week, Perks is hooking you up with first dibs on (and up to 50% off) seats at the Marlins’ new stadium, opening in 2012. Also: gratis bottles, exclusive after-party access and 20% off your stay at the Hard Rock Hotel Chicago during Lollapalooza. And finally, 40% off your next purchase of six scotch chocolate bars. Yes, we said scotch chocolate bars.
Things to do for July 22, 2010
Half-Off Beer, Rooftop Partying and Endless Paella
The weekend smells like cocoa butter.
Half-Off Beer at Essensia
If you haven’t already, add the Palms Hotel’s Essensia to your list of places to unwind on Thursdays. Starting today, they’re slinging Stellas for $3.50 at their DJ-fueled weekly party, which should pair well with $7 flutes of Roederer champagne and half-off appetizers like Mandarin Duck Salad ($6).
Big things are happening at the little man’s restaurant these days. They’ve brought in an Iron Chef alum from foodie favorite D19 in Aspen to serve you rustic dishes like Colorado Lamb Chops and English Pea Ravioli. And yes, the fist-size meatballs are still there.
You’re not a big hotel-shop shopper, but when the Fontainebleau starts slashing spring and summer inventory by 80%, you’re willing to make an exception. Starting tomorrow, you’ll find J Brand jeans for $40, Paul Smith button-downs for $120 and Sundek swim trunks for $40, plus sales on sunglasses, humidors and wine.
Partying on the Webster Rooftop
A finely curated surf shop isn’t the only surprise at the Webster lately. Tomorrow night they’re launching a happy hour on their 1930s-style roof deck, complete with gratis champagne, mini-blinis with caviar and two-for-one well drinks, beer and wine. This is why 1930s-style roof decks were invented.
Your favorite parties are the ones that happen for no reason at all. (Or at least those are some of your favorites.) So mark your calendar for next Wednesday: One Bal Harbour is hosting a summer blowout with loads of complimentary bites and sips, including paella, chorizo, and red and white sangria. There’ll also be flamenco dancers, just because.
