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 13, 2010
Private Cabanas, Gator Grilling and Sailing to the Nats Game
The weekend is being called into special session.
Gator Grilling on Acadiana’s Patio
It’s time to prove once again that you still sit atop the food chain. Especially while cutting out early on Friday. Take up a spot on the patio, order up a pitcher of Abita, and let Acadiana’s chef grill you some gator tail with pepper jelly and spicy slaw. Also on the menu: roasted suckling pig and andouille sausage. The gators will get them if you don’t.
60% Off at Vineyard Vines
You’re not ready to put the seersucker away yet. Not by a long shot. The Georgetown preppy outfitter is discounting its spring and summer lines by up to 60%. We’re talking polos, oxfords, shorts and, yes, belts with little whales on them. Just in time for you to join Obama on the Vineyard.
ADC Map Store Closing for Good
It’s about time you booked that hiking trip across the steppes of Kazakhstan. What you’re missing: a guidebook. The Farragut West map and travel book store is closing for good on Saturday, and they’re knocking 80% off everything—books, globes, even wall maps from which you can plot your global domination. First Kazakhstan, tomorrow the world.
Beer and Peanuts on a Baseball Boat
It’s Sunday. Strasburg is warming up. And you... you’re on a boat. You’ll leave from the Southwest waterfront an hour before game time and get there in time for the first pitch, all the while noshing on popcorn, peanuts, Cracker Jack... and a gratis beer. Yes, they’ll let you bring your “K” signs on the boat.
Half-Price Wine and ’Ritas at Cabanas
You’ve had a summer of private beachside cabanas and cold, cold cocktails. Relive it all, only this time with air-conditioning. You’ll want to commandeer one of the indoor cabanas here, and order up half-price frozen margaritas and glasses of wine. The Potomac is your Costa del Sol.
