This week Perks brings you 15 percent off sold-out football playoff tickets and 25 percent off a ski weekend in Vermont (and yes, there's a hot tub involved).
Things to do for January 08, 2009
Bulls, Meatballs and Bud Fox
The weekend is strong like bull.
We'll trade a cantinetta for a bistecca any day. Especially when it's from Da Silvano, priced for the times and serving simple pleasures like grass-fed chops, bison skirt steak and lamb ribs. Ah, sometimes it's the simple, meaty pleasures...
The LES boutique that helps make sure your rakish look remains steadfastly intact throughout the weekend is clearing the decks, with a huge 80 percent off jackets, sweaters, shoes and more from Fred Perry, Yoko Devereaux and other brands not necessarily named after gentlemen of leisure.
The always-mobbed, good-to-the-stomach, light-on-the-wallet, Italian comfort food stalwart may be a little less mobbed this weekend, since they've taken over the antique store next door, doubling their capacity to fifty. Which means your meatball waiting time should at least be cut in half. The catch: It's only open on the weekends. For now...
MSG takes a break from the Knicks, Rangers and Kanye concerts to bring in some down-home boys (the top 45 in the world) to show you that there's more to riding the bull than lining up at Mason Dixon or Johnny Utah's.
Brunch has arrived at Ssam Bar, and Chang and co. are bringing you a few typically inventive egg dishes—like Scrapple with Fried Egg, Violet Mustard and Greens—that sort of sound like a game of Clue—albeit a very delicious game of Clue.
Bud Fox vs. Lehman Brothers
What would Gordon Gekko do? Cinema Reagan pairs '80s flicks with the guest lecturers that love them. Watch Wall Street again for the first time, and then hear former Lehman Brothers Senior VP Marcus Haupt blame Gordon Gekko for everything. (We advise you to leave your Dick Fuld mask at home.)
