This week, Perks is bringing you half off cutting-edge ties from the Brits at Motto and Crest. Also: half off a weeklong rental of the historic Nantucket Lightship, with nightly dinner parties for 10 catered by a private chef. You would never party on a boat without a private chef.
Things to do for August 27, 2010
Rooftop Movies, Snoop Dogg and French Lingerie
The weekend doesn’t try, it just does.
Fried Chicken Meets Cheetos
There was a time when getting home from school meant Cheetos were about to render your fingers a radioactive shade of orange. Well, the Cheeto is back—this time as the breading on deep-fried, Taiwanese-style chicken. Yes, your fingers will be left orange. No, fried chicken will never be the same.
60% Off Kiki de Montparnasse
The end of summer may remind you of breezy BBQs on the shore and late-night skinny dips in the surf, but for our friends at Kiki de Montparnasse, it conjures a surprise sample sale of super-luxe undergarments for the shapely people in your life, all marked down 60%. We chose our friends for a reason.
60% Off at Armani/Casa
Sure, you could wrap your featherbed in generic bed linens, but even if your overnight guests have the good manners not to say anything, they know. So consider a visit to the Armani/Casa store, where linens are marked down 60%, leaving it up to you to have the good manners to put them on your bed.
When Vito Corleone first arrived in New York, he lived on the LES. Back then, they didn’t show movies on rooftops. They assassinated crime bosses. Things have changed. Climb atop New Design HS today for alfresco viewing of the greatest sequel of all time. We promise this isn’t a setup.
Island-Hopping with Snoop and Wu-Tang
Of all the many options you have for kicking it old-school this Saturday, none will quite match the scene on Governors Island—Snoop, Wu-Tang, Tribe, KRS-One , Lauryn Hill and Slick Rick will be performing together in a single afternoon. And all this time you’ve been wondering where to get your 1994 on.
He’s been gone more than a year now, but Michael Jackson’s star power is strangely stronger than ever. For proof, wander over to Prospect Park on Sunday for an outdoor dance party and MJ tribute, compliments of Spike Lee and 10,000 dedicated fans of the King of Pop. 10,001 if you moonwalk by.
