30% Off the Season’s Latest Swimwear

Summer’s here and you wouldn’t mind a little recreational dipping. Perks gets that, and we’ve got you covered... from waist to knee. With Onia’s classic line of swimsuits and board shorts—they’re trim, handsome and, for you, 30% off. Any more would be skinny dipping.

Watching Harold and Maude Poolside
WATERWORLD

Watching Harold and Maude Poolside

Dinner and a movie: strong. Cannonballs and Harold and Maude: very strong. The Belmont’s rolling out their poolside movie series tonight with the classic love story of a young man and an 80-year-old woman. Order up an icy martini, and enjoy the downtown view from the water. BYO beach ball.

Jun 16, 7pm, no cost, Belmont Hotel, 901 Fort Worth Ave, 866-870-8010

Friday
Pecan Lodge’s New BBQ Smoker
UP IN SMOKE

Pecan Lodge’s New BBQ Smoker

Barbecue. As a Texan... No, as an American... Nay, as a human, you have a right to enjoy it wherever you go. And now, after two long months, it has returned to the Dallas Farmers Market, thanks to Pecan Lodge’s new smoker. You know your rights.

Thu-Sun, 11am-3pm, Pecan Lodge Catering at the Dallas Farmers Market, 1010 S Pearl Expy, Shed 2, 214-748-8900

Sunday
Steak and Eggs on Top of a Marquee
SHOWTIME

Steak and Eggs on Top of a Marquee

Something about eating on top of a marquee just feels cinematic. Mostly because you’re literally on top of a movie theater. Anyway, your newest supporting player: bacon and waffles with a Bloody Mary, courtesy of Marquee’s new brunch. Nothing fuels a double feature like a side of Jack Cheese Grits.

Sundays, 10:30am-3pm, Marquee Grill, 33 Highland Park Village, 214-522-6035

Father’s Day with Scotch and a Massage
DAY OF THE DAD

Father’s Day with Scotch and a Massage

The tie. The coffee mug. The Larry O’Brien Trophy. Yep, you’ve gotten your pops everything. This year, switch it up with an 80-minute deep tissue massage, a 60-minute men’s facial, a spa manicure and a flight of single malt scotches. As a final gift: never mention the manicure again.

Chief Executive Dad Special, $289, Hiatus Spa, 5560 W Lovers Ln, Ste 250, 214-352-4111

IT’S THE NORMA

Dinner at Norma’s for Less than $2

Three words: chicken-fried steak. Actually, three more words: under two dollars. The occasion: dear old Norma’s 55th birthday. Feel free to put some candles in your steak.
