Nothing works out holiday stress like a spa visit, so we're giving you another shot at Perk-priced deep tissue massages from Exhale Spa. Remember to say thank you…again.

NADA Opens at the Deauville
NORTH BEACH

NADA Opens at the Deauville

If you see only one satellite fair this year, make it the eclectic works at NADA, the indie-est of the indie exhibits. This year they've relocated from Wynwood to the Deauville, which means plenty of poolside lounging to go with your art perusing.

2-8pm, Dec 3 (through Dec 6), Deauville, 6701 Collins Ave, 212-594-0883

Half-Off Sushi at China Grill
Rollout

Half-Off Sushi at China Grill

China Grill's new happy hour runs generously late, and everything—from sushi, to cocktails, to wine and beer—is half off. Meaning you can chase that $4.50 Kirin Ichiban with a $6.50 Havana roll (that's yellowtail, rum, coconut and avocado) for less than the normal price of a saketini.

6-9pm daily, China Grill, 404 Washington Ave, 305-534-2211

Friday
A Sex Pistol on the Beach
Bollocks

A Sex Pistol on the Beach

By tomorrow night, you're either completely sick of art or gearing up for the final push. Either way, you'll happily take a little music break. Catch Sex Pistols bassist Glen Matlock at this poolside concert at the W and observe Brit punk rock royalty up close.

No cost, 11pm, Dec 4, WET at the W, 2201 Collins Ave, 305-398-3131

Saturday
Free Cocktails and Anime Art
Gallerizing

Free Cocktails and Anime Art

It's not every day you get to see art for free and drink endless vodka cocktails. Helping you do both: the pop-up gallery for graffiti artist Miguel Paredes and his collection of anime-like toys, accompanied by an open bar from V Georgio vodka.

No cost, 7-10pm, Dec 5, 412 Lincoln Rd, RSVP here

Sunday
4 Courses and Endless Wine at Scarpetta
Year One

4 Courses and Endless Wine at Scarpetta

Your favorite Italian restaurant at the Fontainebleau is celebrating birthday number one with a mouthwatering four-course prix fixe. You'll start with an app like raw yellowtail or braised short ribs, move on to pasta and entrées like roasted prime age sirloin, and finish with dolce like Amedei Chocolate Cake. And wine pairings are complimentary.

$49.95, available Dec 6-10, Scarpetta, 4441 Collins Ave, 305-674-4660, menu here
