Your Coffee Table Needs This

This week, we’re hooking you up with a handsome box of inspiration from Phaidon, filled with iconic graphic designs—for 30% off. Display it on your Brooklyn-made coffee table from Yorkwood, who’re taking 25% off their entire line just for Perks members. Lastly, enjoy a bottle of rare scotch from seven legendary distilleries. You’ve earned it...

Introducing a Camera with No Phone
OH, SNAP!

Introducing a Camera with No Phone

You’ve seen this quirky Russian-born camera before. It’s known for its supersaturated hues and tough-as-nails exterior. Lesser-known attribute: throwing one hell of an opening party for its galleries. Look for hot dogs, pizza, beer and more hipster-posing than an American Apparel catalog.

Friday
A Stylish Party to Greet Fall
COOK LOOK

A Stylish Party to Greet Fall

In a twist on the old model-works-as-waiter formula, this Haberdash party has models working as chefs. Fortunately, the models are Bill Kim, Art Smith and Tony Mantuano—who can be found posing in the store’s new fall lookbook and making canapés. Try that, Marcus Schenkenberg.

Saturday
A Movie Premiere in a Snowboard Shop
BOARD MEETING

A Movie Premiere in a Snowboard Shop

Snowboarding season. It’s coming. To get you acclimated, Burton’s hosting a party for the premiere of Thirteen, a hyperkinetic documentary featuring the world’s best snowboarders. Best part: afterward, they’ll have beer and bourbon on hand. For all your après-snowboarding needs.

Your Fun New Late-Night Paella Party
SPANISH FLY

Your Fun New Late-Night Paella Party

The scene at Tavernita takes one step closer to becoming the new Ibiza with a super-late-night Saturday melee. For its kickoff, it’s got a DJ from Vegas, sangria and a limited number of paellas. Paella is the new Red Bull.

Sunday
Liquor-y Cotton Candy, Sausage and Hay
COUNTY FARE

Liquor-y Cotton Candy, Sausage and Hay

Bangers & Lace celebrates its two-year anniversary by turning Paulina Street into a county fair. Your entry gets you 25 tickets to spend on pheasant sausage, rye punch, Fernet-Branca cotton candy and pumpkin funnel cakes. There’s also giant Jenga, in case you’re feeling super-steady.
