THURSDAY PERKS

2 New Perks

This week, we've got a free shirt and tie from duncan quinn and 25% off All Purpose—the latest LA fashion import to hit Refinery 29—along with deals from Wynn, Berluti and Crush. So you've got wine, clothes to spill it on, and a hotel staff to rinse out the stain.

Thursday
Ssam Bar Reopens for Late Night
THURSDAY SSAM

Ssam Bar Reopens for Late Night

Your summer of unfulfilled late-night Korean cravings is officially over. Ssam Bar is moving their closing time back two hours to 2 am. Plus, the slow-roasted Bo Ssam is now available with 12:30 reservations—in case you need enough early-morning pork shoulder to feed the Knicks.

411: 207 2nd Ave (at 13th St), 212-254-3500

Friday
Shorty's.32 Soft-Opens
FRIDAY SOHO DINING

Shorty's.32 Soft-Opens

Head to Josh Eden's comfy new neighborhood spot in Soho, settle down under the mismatched hanging lampshades and try the braised pork belly with cranberry bean salad or the braised short ribs with elbow macaroni—because nothing announces the weekend like pasta named after body parts.

411: 199 Prince (near Sullivan), 212-375-8275; brunch debuts next weekend

Friday
45th New York Film Festival
FRIDAY FESTIVAL

45th New York Film Festival

Kicking off this Friday, the New York Film Festival boasts one of the best lineups in recent memory, with the latest from Wes Anderson, Noah Baumbach, Sidney Lumet and the Brothers Coen. And for a sweetener, there's Heather Graham in Broken.

411: Sept 28 through Oct 14, Lincoln Center
THE DADDY HOOKUP: We've got a couple of tickets. If you really want to see Heather, let us know. For the right reason, we could probably make that happen.

Saturday
Friends and Family at Ralph Lauren
SATURDAY SHOPPING

Friends and Family at Ralph Lauren

You may not be in Ralph's family, but you've always considered yourself a friend. The latest event gives you the chance to hobnob with his other pals, all while getting 30% off. It's even good online, in case you're only facebook friends.
411: Through October 11th at all Ralph Lauren and Rugby Stores, and at ralphlauren.com. Present this email at checkout, or enter FALL2007 online.

Friends and Family at Brooks Brothers
Your favorite sartorial siblings are taking 25% off all your purchases, from the slim-fit oxford dress shirts that you don't have to iron, to the comfortable and versatile corduroy sport coats. Ah, family.

Saturday
Oysterfest in Financial District
SATURDAY NIGHT OYSTERS

Oysterfest in Financial District

Ring in the Oyster Harvest with a day of oyster-slurping, Irish beer and live music at the Stone Street Oyster Festival. It's about time you used Wall Street for more than just shrewd financial gains.

411: 1 Hanover Square (between Stone and Pearl), 212-482-0400

Sunday
Perilla Opens for Brunch
SUNDAY BRUNCH

Perilla Opens for Brunch

Burgeoning West Village resto Perilla continues its climb up your culinary shortlist with the spreading of its brunch-wings (just go with it). We recommend you shoot for the Steamed Tightrope Mussels or the Spicy Duck Burger. Failing that, nothing settles a morning buzz like endives.
411: 9 Jones Street (between W. 4th and Bleecker), 212-929-6868

Nikki Beach Midtown Launches Brunch
They turned Miami brunch into the stuff of legend. Now Nikki Beach is attempting to do the same thing in Midtown. We applaud the effort...and they do have a lobster pasta salad on their side.

411: 151 E 50th St. (between Lexington and Third), 212-753-1144, nikkibeach.com/newyork
