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.
Things to do for July 10, 2014
Hookahs, Swimsuit Models and Samba Dancers
Howl at the weekend.
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.
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.
... 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.
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
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.
