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 27, 2010
Beer, Broads and Biscuits
The weekend is on Miami time.
If you’re in the mood to class it up tonight, head over to the oasis of good taste in South Beach that is the Bass Museum. Starting tonight and continuing through September, there’ll be live jazz and passed Grolsches in the courtyard. This is the right way to autumn.
Let’s say you were a dog. A handsome dog. A boxer, a lab, a golden retriever. You’d definitely be hanging out at the Dog Bar, now open in Midtown. A nonalcoholic haunt for pooches, it’s got everything from fancy dog collars and chew toys to a fully stocked biscuit bar. We hear they even play a little poker in the back...
The Betsy hotel’s underground speakeasy is hosting Atlanta rockers Stokeswood (the South’s answer to Vampire Weekend) on Saturday. Our suggestion: dinner at BLT Steak upstairs, then downstairs for the performance and complimentary Sailor Jerry cocktails. Every concert deserves a rib eye.
If you’re up for a scene on Sunday, grab three friends, claim one of the tables outside Segafredo (every party of four gets a bottle of prosecco) and prepare for DJ-fueled 10th-anniversary mayhem. Think: Brazilians dancing on the tables, Italians... acting all Italian and live tribal/bohemian music. This could be epic, or it could be merely legendary.
You might have heard about a pack of comely art lovers called the MOCA Shakers that gets together every so often to sip cocktails and talk art. (Like a book club, but with more Damien Hirst.) This Wednesday they’ll be convening at Area 31’s 16th floor bar to art it up over free Grey Goose cocktails. Oh, and the girl-to-guy ratio is usually 3:1. We like your odds.
