2 New Perks

This week's Perks bring you a martini-enhanced shopping event from Ted Baker and 40 percent off swimwear and lingerie from La Perla, with their menswear line thrown in for good measure. Don't worry: none of it lifts or separates.

Champions Sports Bar Opens

Champions Sports Bar Opens

Tonight's the grand opening of the sleek new sports bar at the Marriott airport hotel complex. Pitchers of Presidente will cost you just $7.90, and there'll be appearances by sports celebs like former NBA great Tim Hardaway and current Heat coach Erik Spoelstra. You'll definitely want to stop by if you're reading this from a 747.

Wine and Snacks at La Marea

You're already familiar with the life-altering lobster corn dogs at La Marea, so you'll be pleased to hear about this deal: for one night only, $25 gets you a six-course wine flight of South American and Italian vinos, paired with gussied-up comfort food like mini fish tacos, crispy short rib crostini and pink peppercorn duck breast.

50% Off at the Viceroy Spa

Just when you thought you could stick a fork in Miami Spa Month, along comes the Viceroy Spa, with its fancy crystal chandeliers, making some pretty bold offers. They're slashing all their spa treatments in half through September, which means you can grab an hour of shiatsu for $80, or an hour of deep foot scrubbing for $40.

Full Moon Party at the Ritz

Full Moon Party at the Ritz

You don't really need an excuse to lounge at the Ritz's outdoor beach club while listening to a live DJ and sipping $7 cocktails. But a full moon helps, as does Top Chef alum Jeff McInnis in the kitchen whipping up North African finger food like fried haloumi cheese and harissa fries for under $10.

Sand Bake at Fairmont Turnberry
Seersucker

Sand Bake at Fairmont Turnberry

Miami's best chefs (Gabriel Fenton of Bourbon Steak, Allen Susser of Chef Allen's) will be dishing out their favorite tapas, and there'll be an open bar at this annual poolside party at the Aventura resort. If you stay the night, your room is $139 plus a free round of golf, which ought to pair nicely with that work-free Monday you've got planned.

$100, 5-8pm, September 6, 19999 W. Country Club Dr, reserve at 305-663-9641
