Father’s Day, covered: we’re hooking you up with 30% off Swiss-made timepieces from Tsovet, plus 30% off classic ’70s-style polos from Boast (John McEnroe’s a fan). Finally: a three-pack of Bacon Explosions (bacon-wrapped sausage marvels) for the price of two. These are some powerful Perks.
Things to do for May 31, 2012
A Pool, a Chipwich and a Man Playing the Flute
The weekend is paved with good intentions.
With all due respect to Jefferson Starship, this city was built on some good old-fashioned bass. So join music historian Dave Tompkins as he discusses the impact of bass on Miami’s culture, politics and... posterior chains. Afterward, enjoy vodka cocktails as he spins some classics. Then, shake what your mama gave ya.
Stocking Up at the Webster
Jackets. Trousers. Head-to-toe denim. Not exactly things you’re in the market for right now. However, the Webster is hosting a sale with up to 40% off Rag & Bone, Givenchy and Tom Ford right now, so perhaps purchase a few as an investment. Or purchase a few and move to Minnesota.
An Awesome Flute Concert. Really.
The Sounds of the Walls concert series from Néstor Torres (yes, Gloria Estefan’s flute guy) kicks off at the Wynwood Walls this Friday. On the stage: Big Brooklyn Red and Monica da Silva. On your plate: chicken empanadas from Wynwood Kitchen & Bar. In your glass: Brooklyn Local 2. Hoist your lighter high.
The Best Kind of Art Gallery
The best kind of art gallery: the kind with ping-pong tables... and chipwiches. So, enter the launch event for the new studio collection called Yo Space. There’ll be table tennis. There’ll be hookah smoking. There’ll be a bunch of Coolhaus ice cream passed around. Oh, and art, too.
What’s 12 hours long, has a ton of bourbon and features music from former Miami Heat center turned DJ Rony Seikaly? Answer: the new all-day poolside soiree at the Delano. We also would have accepted: your plans this Sunday.
