This week, Perks is bringing you a chance to spend a day at the track, racing Audi’s sportiest machines around Infineon Raceway. Also: gear for the impending season between seasons with half off Steven Alan’s pre-fall collection. Finally, a weeklong membership and personal training session at Crunch, on the house. Because you only like to sweat in the presence of a live DJ.
Things to do for August 12, 2010
Steam Rooms, Brazilians and Cheerleaders in Swimsuits
The weekend saved you a spot.
Brickell Irish Pub Turns One
Answer to the question “Where should you be tonight at 6pm?”: Brickell Irish Pub. They’re celebrating one year of Guinness-sliding and burger-slinging with a dangerously generous two-hour window of free beer and bar bites. Then, it’s a DJ-fueled look forward at Year Two. We believe the term is sláinte.
Positano Ristorante Now Open
Hey, sometimes it happens. You find yourself in Doral, hungry and jonesing for some Veal Scallopini and a bottle of wine, preferably on a patio overlooking a man-made lake. At this point, you’ll want to turn to this classy new Italian spot, which almost makes you feel like you’re east of I-95. Almost.
The only thing you love more than Brazilians: Brazilian films. Okay, not true. Still, we think you may want to look at the Brazilian Film Festival kicking off Friday on Lincoln Road as your chance to workshop your Miami Vice II script with a South American stunner. Best place to start may be the after-party at Bar 721 tomorrow night at 10:30pm.
Steam Rooming at the InterContinental
All of the InterContinental’s body-improvement facilities (weights, treadmills, eucalyptus steam room and rain showers) can be yours for the day for $20 in August. The catch: you’ll have to spend an hour around gorgeous women in one of their yoga classes, some of which finish with a gratis organic cocktail. Twist your arm...
Amid the myriad frustrations of NFL preseason—the holdouts, the meaningless games, Rex Ryan’s neck girth—the one silver lining is the unveiling of another thought-provoking Dolphins Cheerleader swimsuit calendar. This year’s debuts Wednesday at Fontainebleau with a cheerleader swimsuit show and a party. Your wall would want you to attend.
