Your Perks: 1) Three hours of yoga, saunas and thermal baths in Tribeca. 2) Tickets to a four-course meal complete with 10 types of wine and entertainment from some flexible performers. 3) Exclusive tickets to Queen of the Night. Huge if whole roasted pig, gratis wine and partially clothed dancers are your thing.
