It's not every day you get the chance to be fitted by an Italian Master Tailor, whose impeccable talents with a tape measure will ensure your new suit, jacket and shirts meld seamlessly with your Master Physique. You've got the next three days to take advantage of Brioni's best pin man; may as well stock up for the season.

Master Tailors, $25 Hotel Rooms and UFC Parties
The weekend is ready for a rematch.
If your birthday is this month or you know someone whose is, you'll want to head to the Acqualina, where the room rate for one night's stay is equal to your age. The catch is you have to also book their new spa day-pass for $55, which gets you a 20-minute massage and unlimited access to crystal steam rooms, Finnish saunas and the oceanfront pool. So actually, there is no catch.
Your favorite Scandinavian design store has migrated from the beach to the mainland. Help them celebrate their Design District debut by sipping a few of their complimentary cocktails and perusing their pattern-happy stock of furniture, wallpaper, linens, towels and bags. Seriously, it would be rude not to at least stop by.
Getting excited for UFC 99? Yeah, we all are. But unlike UFC 98, you won't have to bother with pay-per-view to catch the action—8 oz. will be screening all of the mixed-martial-arts beatdowns, as well as slinging $3 drafts throughout the night. Nothing goes better with ground-and-pound than a frosty glass of Shock Top.
Dinner at Caffe Abbracci usually nets you several local politician sightings, a few brushes with random celebs (we're looking at you, Banderas) and heaping plates of Italian fare. All this month it'll also mean a special three-course menu with veal scaloppini, penne with pink sauce, a glass of Perrier-Jouët champagne and a good segue into your Desperado story.
