This week, Perks is taking half off your next pair of cult selvage denim jeans, fresh from the laboratory: the Denim Design Lab. It’s modern-day jean science, with a dash of old-timey alchemy. A little jean alchemy goes a long way.
Things to do for July 29, 2010
Margarita Happy Hour, Pixar and a Lot of Rum
The weekend holds no animosity toward the week.
Peruvian Independence Week at La Mar
The proper respect should be paid to a country’s national drink, especially when that nation is celebrating its birthday (Peru’s was technically yesterday). And by respect, we mean raising a glass of $5 pisco sours, pisco punch or chilcano de pisco all week. And maybe eating some guinea pig...
Pixar’s had a pretty good run—Toy Story, Wall-E, Toy Story 2, Toy Story 3... See how they pulled it off at the new exhibit with more than 500 of their storyboards, graphics and notoriously hilarious short films. And we promise not to tell anyone you cried during Up.
Drink the British Royal Navy’s Rum
You have a few rules in this life, one of them being “no one rations your booze.” So you’ll be in good company at Smuggler’s Cove, where you’ll get your share of the largest collection of authentic British Royal Navy rums from back when sailors had their daily “tot.” In other words, it’s time to pack 40 years’ worth of rum rations into two hours.
Margarita Happy Hour at Mijita
You usually go to the Ferry Building for farmers’ market goodies, not tequila. But you’re willing to expand your mind, and to help you, the good people of Mijita are dishing out $5 margaritas on the rocks with endless chips and salsa—but you might have to bring your own farmer’s daughter.
If the epic lines have stopped you from indulging in Namu’s Korean tacos with kalbi short ribs and kimchee salsa, then you’ll like their new loophole: pre-order. There’s a minimum, but you’ll probably be more concerned with the maximum.
