THURSDAY PERK

It's always nice to have a little inspiration handy, especially if you can get a deal on it. This week Perks brings you a very exclusive offer on the tome of wisdom, style guide and occasional cologne sampler that is DETAILS.

Canada Goes Belgian Beer Tasting
THURSDAY SUDS

Canada Goes Belgian Beer Tasting

Wrap your head around this one: Belgian-style brews from Unibroue, a Canadian brewery started by a Quebec native. There'll be three types on hand for sipping tonight, including a yeasty 9 percent alcohol triple-style ale. It's multiculturalism at its best.

No cost, 6:30-8:30pm, Jan 29, Bin No. 18, 1800 Biscayne Blvd (at 18th), 786-235-7575

Friday
The Return of Thug Sinatra
FRIDAY LOUNGE LIZARD

The Return of Thug Sinatra

Local scribe and nightlife fixture John Hood takes to the mic to perform a medley of Young Jeezy, DJ Khaled and Cat Power in addition to the usual array of Rat Pack classics. It all starts making sense once you've had a drink. Or six.

10pm, Jan 30, Provocateur, 323 23rd St (between Collins and Pine Tree), 305-674-4478, RSVP here

Saturday
A Taste of MiMo
SATURDAY SNACKING

A Taste of MiMo

Celebrate the culinary bounty that is the Mid-Century Modern district with this luscious all-day restaurant crawl. Our suggestion: Start out at Kingdom, move on to Casa Toscana, grab some sips at Wine 69 and end with a beer and a bite on the river at Red Light.

$2-5 per item, 12-5pm, Jan 31, between 67th and 78th on Biscayne Blvd, 305-609-4288

Sunday
Super Bowl Party at Plunge
SUNDAY VIEWING

Super Bowl Party at Plunge

Thirty bucks gets you and a friend unlimited STK sliders and chicken wings (the 18th-floor views of South Beach are also unlimited). Spring for a poolside cabana and you'll watch the game on your own flat screen with a tub of Heineken. Take that, Tampa!

Tuesday
Marlins Season Preview
TUESDAY BASEBALL

Marlins Season Preview

Your favorite American pastime—steak eating—teams up with Dan Le Batard from something called the "radio" for a meet-and-greet with Marlins players, ex-players and manager Fredi Gonzalez. Don't be surprised if he asks you to sign his filet mignon...
