Things to do for October 07, 2010

The Weekender

Cheap Massages, Italian Actresses and Full-On Clubbing

The weekend is throwing open the windows.

Thursday
Argentine Leather and Your Masterpiece
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Argentine Leather and Your Masterpiece

This week, spending $50 gets you $100 at Etiqueta Negra, a new Argentine men’s shop full of battle-tested polos, blazers and leather—and a retired Bugatti T3 race car. Plus, a $50 certificate from Perks gets you a $100 print at CanvasPop, a site that turns humble JPEGs into gallery-worthy art. Or at least living room-worthy.

Tonight: Cocktails and Massages
LOOSEN UP

Tonight: Cocktails and Massages

You look tense. And thirsty. Good news: the Palms is relaunching its Thursday happy hour this evening, which means you’ll have the chance to grab half-price cocktails ($4 to $6) and bar snacks on their palatial patio. Right after your half-price 90-minute massage...

Thursdays starting Oct 7, 6-10pm, The Palms, 3025 Collins Ave, 305-534-0505

Partying with Italian Filmmakers
CINEPHILE

Partying with Italian Filmmakers

You’ve mingled with Tarantino. Scorsese. De Niro. But now is your opportunity to rub elbows with the cinema world’s future Sophia Lorens. After taking in the Italian Film Festival’s opening movie, you’ll head to SET for an after-party with an open vodka bar and pasta buffet. Take it easy on the carbs.

Oct 7, 8pm, $50, Regal South Beach, 1120 Lincoln Rd, 305-864-0101, tickets here

Friday
A Haunted Circus in Downtown
FRIGHTS

A Haunted Circus in Downtown

Think of it as Cirque du Soleil meets Dracula. The story follows a vampire who walks a cemetery at night, and in between plot points, you’ll see a mix of cabaret and singing acrobats... because there’s nothing scarier than singing acrobats.

Oct 8, 8pm, $31, Knight Center, 400 SE 2nd Ave, 800-745-3000, tickets here

Saturday
The Return of Club Space
REVAMPED

The Return of Club Space

The massive downtown club reopens Saturday with a better sound system, a rad LED setup and a larger, leather-ier VIP area. To make opening night special, they’ve brought in world-renowned DJ Danny Tenaglia. Who, as you know, is like the Elvis of remixing.

Tuesday
Lofting with Six Wines and Apps
VINO-ING

Lofting with Six Wines and Apps

If you still haven’t checked out the cozy new upstairs loft at Morgans, do it Tuesday. They’re offering you six wines (think: full-bodied reds from France, Chile and New Zealand) and apps like prosciutto, grilled shrimp and bruschetta. All for a quarter hundy.

Oct 12, 6:30-8:30pm, $25, Morgans, 28 NE 29th St, RSVP at 305-573-9678
