THURSDAY PERK

1 New Perk

This week's perk has Classic Car Club taking you on a 100-mile jaunt (think of it as a really fast road trip) upstate in their best rides, competing to see who can get out of the city the fastest. Last one back's a rotten egg.

Friday
Rogues Gallery Showroom
FRIDAY ROGUERY

Rogues Gallery Showroom

The Maine-based rugged nautical buffs are opening up their first New York showroom for wholesale buyers…and well-connected followers of fashion. Just use the private email and they'll set you up with a personal shopper to guide you to the deck shoes that bring out your eyes.

Saturday
Pie-Off at Bowery Electric
SATURDAY BAKING

Pie-Off at Bowery Electric

Those years of baking finally pay off at this old-fashioned pie competition, where you'll test your skills against the best amateurs in the city. Top Chef Dave Martin is on hand to taste the results and compliment you on your latticing. If you're not too busy with your drink, that is.

SUNDAY PONG

Naked Ping Pong in Union Square

The frustratingly clothed entrepreneurs come to Union Square for an afternoon of outdoor paddling, with nationally ranked pros as reinforcements. Any fight-clubbing should be purely pong-based.

Sunday
MGMT Plays McCarren Park Pool
SUNDAY HPSTRS

MGMT Plays McCarren Park Pool
