PERKS

2 New Perks

For this week's batch of perky goodness, we've got 25 percent off on all Bliss spa products online and 30 percent off all polos (like Fred Perry and J. Lindeberg) from Fresh Polos. We've also got an extra 10 percent off a bulletproof polo. But you can't put a price on safety...

Segafredo Brickell One-Year Party
ANNIVERSARY

Segafredo Brickell One-Year Party

It's a mighty generous birthday sport who gives back on their special day, but Segafredo Brickell is just such a place. Stop by tonight for comp drinks and Italian nibbles, and reminisce about how the spot has brought you twelve months of after-work tippling.

No cost, 7-9pm, Dec 18, Segafredo Brickell, 1421 S. Miami Ave (between SE. 14th and SE. 15th), 305-577-9811, RSVP here

BlackBerry Luxe Event
DRAMA

BlackBerry Luxe Event

Entourage underdog Kevin Dillon ("Drama") hosts an evening of BlackBerry-backed revelry at Set that includes a two-hour open bar and sounds by DJ Clinton Sparks. Without Vince around, Drama should be partying like it's 1989.

No cost, 10pm-1am, Dec 18, Set, 320 Lincoln Rd (between Washington and Collins), 305-531-2800, RSVP here

Saturday
$1 Bloody Marys at Brosia
HAIR OF THE DOG

$1 Bloody Marys at Brosia

Brosia's courtyard brunch is a regular on your post-debauchery debauchery rotation. This Saturday they've cemented a place in your heart with $1 Bloody Marys and live jazz. Combine that with cognac French toast and you might want to stay in Friday night.

11am-12pm, Dec 20, Brosia, 163 NE. 39th St (between NE. 2nd Ave and NE. 1st Ct), 305-572-1400

Pizza Fusion Opens in North Miami
ECO PIZZA

Pizza Fusion Opens in North Miami

The beloved Ft. Lauderdale organic-pizza chain make its way south with this cavernous outpost in North Miami. The LEED-certified restaurant churns out addictive thin-crust pies, and there's organic beer on tap like FL-based Monk in the Trunk. Much better than junk.

Now open, 14815 Biscayne Blvd (N. of 146th), 305-405-6700

Monday
Thai Churos Opens
PANANG

Thai Churos Opens

The name may evoke shudders of Thai-Latin fusion, but this place is pure Bangkok classic. From the fiery coconut curries to the spicy tom yom soup to refreshing papaya salad, this sixteen-seater is your new downtown lunch spot.

Now open, 134 NE. 2nd Ave (between NE. 1st and NW. 2nd), 305-577-4323

Wednesday
Eve Party at Florida Room
PRE-PARTY

Eve Party at Florida Room

It wouldn't be Christmas Eve on South Beach without Ajax Ent's yearly party featuring all the pretty ladies, Miami party fixtures and everyone in between. Expect a DJ, free cocktails from 10-11pm and very few weather updates on Santa.

No cost, 9pm-4am, Dec 24, The Florida Room, 1685 Collins Ave (between Lincoln and 17th), 305-674-6152, RSVP here
