This week, Perks is bringing you cutting-edge designer ties from Motto and Crest, for half off. Hailing from across the pond, these ties are manufactured in the English tradition, combining classic menswear fabrics (like tweed) with dashes of more unconventional ones (like leather). Take note: a tweed-and-leather suit is still not a good idea.
Things to do for August 26, 2010
Cabaret, Mammoth and Bar S’mores
The weekend is on a five-second delay.
Back-Room Cabaret at Royal/T
Your favorite gallery/cafe staffed by Japanese maids has gotten even crazier. Beginning tonight, the back room becomes a venue for live music, cabaret and who knows what else. It all starts with a Chilean troubadour and a lounge singer who leans toward hair metal. Just your typical Thursday night...
If your weekends have had a distinct lack of mountaineering lately, Mammoth Mountain has just unleashed some impressive enticement. Get online by Tuesday to book a trip, and you can snag a quick $39 flight... and a $39 room at the Mammoth Mountain Inn. Consider it a much-needed altitude adjustment.
Happy Hour at the Atlantic
Over at Atlantic Bar & Grill, they’ve got a bold new happy hour concept—it actually takes place during prime drinking hours. From 9pm to midnight every weeknight, beers are four bucks and all cocktails (like the vodka-and-ginger Moscow Mule) are half off.
While you’re waiting for your table at Gjelina on Friday night, stop into A. Kinney Court just up the street for a DJ-fueled blowout/sale. The blowout part involves gratis beer and wine; the sale part means Oliver Peoples shades and LnA shirts at up to 70% off.
Dinner at the District Bar
Next time you’re hungry for Squash Blossoms, Octopus with Fingerlings and S’mores, take a seat at District’s giant mahogany bar for a new prix fixe menu option―$30 total for cocktail, app, entrée and dessert. Not a bad deal—plus, you’re closer to the bar.
