Race an Audi. Also: Gratis Crunch and Half Off Steven Alan.

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.

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.

Fridays, 3:30-6:30pm, Acadiana, 901 New York Ave NW, 202-408-8848

60% Off at Vineyard Vines
SALE-ING

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.

Through Saturday, Vineyard Vines, 1225 Wisconsin Ave NW, 202-625-8463

ADC Map Store Closing for Good
SALE-ING II

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.

Sunday
Beer and Peanuts on a Baseball Boat
SAILING TO STRASBURG

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.

Monday
Half-Price Wine and ’Ritas at Cabanas
PRIVATE DRINKING

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.

Through the end of August, Cabanas, Washington Harbour, 3050 K St NW, 202-944-4242
