Your Perks: 1) Tickets to a one-night-only rock opera with Tony Award nominees, scantily clad dancers and a gratis drink. 2) A three-hour, DJ-driven soiree on a balcony overlooking Central Park with an open bar.

Things to do for August 13, 2015
Dance-Offs, Death Puppets and Chang
Gentlemen, you can’t fight in here. This is the weekend.

A Dance-Off, Karaoke, Cocktail Thing
“Well, it was this dance party where they played ’90s hip-hop videos on a huge screen with the lyrics and everyone karaoke’d them. There was a dance-off. I won, before drinking actual gin and juice in celebration. I also gave a bravura performance of ‘Jump Around.’” —You, after this

A One-Night-Only David Chang Thing
A David Chang Indian steakhouse. For one night only. The reservations go up Tuesday. We won’t f**k around on this one. Just straight facts.
What Else Is New

On the LES: Blue Ribbon bar food and tropical cocktails from the Happiest Hour guy are now

In Bushwick: Our Wicked Lady (pictured), that bar/artist-and-band space we told you about recently finally got its rooftop bar—the first in Bushwick. They grow up so fast.
