This week's perk brings you an exclusive 35 percent off a custom-fitted shirt, courtesy of the British mods at Brass Bones. Don't thank us—we do it because we care.

The Return of the Gold Bikini

The Return of the Gold Bikini

Say what you will about Audrina Patridge—her languid burger-on-the-sand commercial has brought back the gold bikini to Princess Leia-level fame. And now you can custom-order that very bikini for your favorite beach bunny. Your generosity knows no bounds.

$350, now available here

Post-Pier Thursdays at the Viceroy
POOLSIDE

Post-Pier Thursdays at the Viceroy

Too many happy hours end before you're ready to get happy, but tonight you'll find half-off beer and wine by the Viceroy's pool starting at a night-owl-friendly 9pm. Technically it's in conjunction with the pier's Twilight Dance Series, but you don't question the reason for half-off drinks. You just don't.

Thursdays through summer, 9pm-close, 1819 Ocean Ave (at Pico), 310-260-7511

Friday
Heavenly Hour at Nirvana
BEDTIME

Heavenly Hour at Nirvana

If it's Bollywood flair you've been lacking, the beds in Nirvana's lounge await. The new happy hour menu's got $6 options like Chicken Tikka Masala and the drinkable Burning Passion, made with vodka and crushed Serrano chiles. It's the only burning sensation you want to feel in bed.

Mon-Fri 5-7pm, 8689 Wilshire Blvd (E. of Robertson), Beverly Hills, 310-657-5040

Saturday
Summer Sessions at Oliver Peoples
SHADES

Summer Sessions at Oliver Peoples

Saturday night at Oliver Peoples, shades usually priced between $300 and $500 will be slashed to either $99 or $119. Plus, KCRW's Garth Trinidad will be spinning, so you can get his opinion on those aviators between trips to the open bar.

July 11 and 25, 6-9pm, Malibu Country Mart, 310-456-1333

Tuesday
1st Tuesdays at West 4th/Jane
EARLY ACCESS

1st Tuesdays at West 4th/Jane

If there's one thing you like in your new beer dens, it's…gratis wine. So over in Santa Monica, UD members get a one-hour head start at Tuesday's new monthly celebration of wine, passed appetizers, wine and new art on the walls. And wine.

July 14, 7-8pm open to VIPs (you), party 8-10pm, 1432-A 4th St, 310-395-6765
