When it comes to dress shirts: always trust the Italians. Especially the good people at Gemelli, who fashion their shirts from fine Italian cotton in a selection of patterns that catch the eye—in a good way. Then trust Perks to knock a nice little chunk off the price.
Things to do for August 16, 2017
Like Miami Spice for Hotels
And Miami's Most Famous Ice Cream Lands at OTLBy Ginger Harris
As Good an Excuse as Any to Sleep in Lots of Different Beds
August = travel. But should you get "stuck" in Miami, make the most of it with the first Summer of Temptations hotel deals (it's basically hotel month). Along with discounted rates at hotels like Faena and Mondrian South Beach, you'll get gratis valet, discounted spa treatments and spa credits. Stuck. Ha.
Where to Find Azucar Ice Cream in the Design District
OTL has Azucar Ice Cream now, which means no more hustling to Calle Ocho for its famous coconut or dulce de leche goodness. It also means you can have its newest flavor made just for the Design District breakfast and lunch spot: Banana Quinoa Muffin. Which absolutely counts as breakfast.
Let's All Celebrate Books With Beer and Stuff
Turns out, people still read real books, as evidenced by the success of Bookleggers' gratis-book movement (those bins around town where you take or leave tomes). Well, it turns five this weekend, and you're going to celebrate that fact with beer, air hockey and a dunk tank. And, right, free books.
The Vagabond's Throwing a Pool Party, Which is Great Because It's Hot as Hell
An island-themed pool party at the Vagabond. That'll do. Though at this point, any excuse to get in a pool will do. Especially if that pool is adjacent to DJ-spun tunes, rum drinks and Caribbean food. Especially then.
The Eclipse Is Coming, and It's Okay to Geek Out About It
Maybe you've heard about that whole coast-to-coast total eclipse thing. Over here, we’ll get a partial eclipse. And by heading to Frost Science, you'll not only see it, but you may even learn a thing or two while watching the NASA live stream and using solar telescopes. Yay science.
