Howl at the weekend.

Thursday
Better Than Bottled Water...
PERK ALERT

Better Than Bottled Water...

Your Perks: 1) A sleek carafe that uses charcoal to naturally mineralize your drinking water. (It’s an ancient Japanese thing.) 2) A summer six-pack of rich, crisp, Tuscany-bred Chianti—for $105. 3) A Perks-approved deal on any work of art at Crated—the Internet’s newest art gallery. A little culture never killed anyone.

Rec Room Gets All Old-School on You
IT’S A RAP

Rec Room Gets All Old-School on You

Fab Five Freddy’s hosting an old-school hip-hop thing at Rec Room tonight. You: drinking a PBRap (that’s a tallboy with Fireball). Maybe doing the worm. Okay, probably not.

Jul 10, 11pm, Rec Room, 1690 Collins Ave, Miami Beach

Friday
Pelé Made Art. Now You Know.
KICKSTARTER

Pelé Made Art. Now You Know.

Apparently, soccer legend Pelé is quite the artist. Mostly fútbol-related stuff. Which... surprising. Anyway, at tomorrow’s reception you can buy his work while enjoying an adult beverage. Pour a little out for Brazil.

Jul 11, 6:30-8:30pm, no cost, Coral Gables Museum, 285 Aragon Ave, Coral Gables, 305-603-8067

Saturday
It Was Alba Seaside. Now It’s...
HOOKAH UP

It Was Alba Seaside. Now It’s...

... Ferris. A Greek/Lebanese pop-up from Ralph Pagano. For Saturday’s grand-opening party, expect belly dancers, hookah and meze. Time to brush up on your puff-and-pass technique.

Starts Jul 12, 7pm, Ferris at Alba Seaside Italian, 17315 Collins Ave, Sunny Isles Beach, 786-923-9300

Sunday
This Bastille Is Not Like the Others
BY GEORGE

This Bastille Is Not Like the Others

You don’t have to be French to partake in Bastille Day. Case in point: George’s pre–Bastille Day party. They’ll be broadcasting the World Cup with samba dancers and gratis beer. Brazil’s the new France.

The Pool Party with the Bikini Models
WELL SUITED

The Pool Party with the Bikini Models

Bikini alert: the W Fort Lauderdale is hosting a special swimsuit-model edition of their Sunday pool party with a bathing suit fashion show, a vodka bar and mango-mojito pitchers. You’re a sucker for a good mojito.

Jul 13, noon-sunset, W Fort Lauderdale, 401 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, 954-414-8200
