3 New Perks

You get one last shot at California bag-maker Morgan Grays' reinvented sample sale this Friday (featuring wine and designers Morgan Molthrop and Stewart Grays on-hand). We've also got another villa, a late-night spa, and a chance to play in a televised golf tournament. It's either a month's worth of vacation or a very busy weekend.

New York Comedy Festival

Awkwardly-dressed comedy writers take a break from picketing to converge on venues throughout the city. Highlights include Bill Maher, Denis Leary and an Upright Citizens Brigade reunion. Also, look for the Saget. He MC'd the opening ceremony and may make an appearance.

NEXT FRIDAY DESSERT

Sweet Dessert Bash

We love a good dessert cart, and this might be more of a fleet. The Food Network brings out its biggest stars (oh, Giada), along with treats by Sam Mason, Johnny Iuzzini, Will Goldfarb and others, for the classiest sugar buzz you've had since Cake Week.
