For their 90th birthday, the legendary Allen Edmonds designed an exclusive line of fall-worthy shoes—they’re priced well below their norm, and only available on Perks. Also, take 30% off football season’s best beef jerky, and pick up your VIP tickets to the Breeders’ Cup—before it’s too late.
Things to do for September 13, 2012
Marilyn Monroe Is Naked and You’re Doing the Limbo
The weekend is in another castle.
A Pop-Up Bookstore at the Standard
Warby Parker. You know them, they make glasses. The Standard. You know them, they make, well, hotels. Put the two together and what do you get: a pop-up lobby newsstand that’s selling vintage tomes by the likes of Kerouac, limited-edition eyewear and (probably) packs of gum.
So the World Erotic Art Museum is honoring Marilyn Monroe (it’s about time) now through the end of November with a gallery exhibit featuring nearly 30 original photos of her. And because they’re the World Erotic Art Museum, most of those photos will be nudes. We assume you won’t have a problem with that.
Leis, tiki torches, bamboo, grass skirts... all in all, a pretty solid way to close out the season. So head to RA for their fourth-anniversary party and partake in some summer sake sangria, tropical-themed sushi rolls and a good old-fashioned limbo contest. Remember, bend at the waist.
The Arrival of Topman
So, Topman has opened up a pop-up shop for a spot at Nordstrom Dadeland (okay, you’re listening). This Saturday: their launch party. The kind with a DJ, a photo booth, T-shirt screen printing and several racks of sharp-looking fall wares. Nobody dresses for autumn like the Brits.
Beer Brunching at Harry’s Pizzeria
Your brunch mimosa’s been busy lately. Time to give it a vacation. Good thing Harry’s is launching a beer brunch featuring local suds on draft and some guest chef action. This week: Whisk’s Brendan Connor, serving up chicken and biscuits and short rib pizzettes. Nothing like breakfast pizza and beer.
