EAT: Who doesn't love new restaurants? Michael Toscano, former chef at Manzo, and Gabriel Stulman, have teamed up on a new restaurant project—Perla. Since it’s official opening last month in New York City, this Italian restaurant has been bombarded with praise. With its intimate and rustic feel and a massive wine menu, Perla makes for a great weekend dinner spot for two. We recommend starting with the Beef Tartare with bone marrow, mushrooms, and potato chips—delicious. 24 Minetta Lane, New York City; perlanyc.com.
PAMPER: It’s nice to take a break once in a while and go to a spa in a remote location. Most of the time this means out in the countryside, but how about going to a private island? Located right off the coast of Miami Beach, the Spa Internazionale on Fisher Island offers a variety of treatments with the latest therapeutic spa techniques. While you have to stay in their hotel to use the spa, a night on a private island is just an added plus. One Fisher Island Drive

DRINK: Sangria should be your drink of choice now that it is spring. At Pampano Botaneria you’ll find eight different types of Sangria, aside from the average white and red wine based. We especially recommend you try the Kiwi Rosé with white grapes. 209 East 49th Street, New York City; richardsandoval.com.
SHOP: In most places it’s still a bit early for a bikini. Even so, you can still welcome spring with this matching shorts and top outfit by Raoul ($589, my-wardrobe.com), which manages to be both comfortable and chic.
WATCH: The much anticipated movie 42 hits the box kffice this weekend. Starring Harrison Ford and Chadwick Boseman, the movie tells the story of Jackie Robinson, the first black baseball player, and his historic time playing for the Brooklyn Dodgers.
PLAY: This Saturday is National Scrabble Day! Grab some friends, some martinis, and try to beat your record on triple word scores! Let us know how you do.
