Contrary to prevailing opinion, being a full-time socialite is hard work. The trick? Make it look as effortless as the Hiltons, Lohans, and Tara Reids of the world.

One of the most demanding obligations of the professional socialite is to look flawless -- we're talkin' paparazzi-ready -- all the time. With such precious few hours spent alone and out of the spotlight, you have to maintain the utmost physical perfection via tanning, waxing, chemical peels, working out, hair appointments, and cosmetic surgery.

Needless to say, if there's an opportunity to kill two birds with one stone, you damn well better take it, so pay attention: every Monday, Furio offers Martinis and Manicures, where you get one of each for $10. You may even scam a manicure for your teacup Chihuahua as long as you don him or her in seeing-eye-dog attire. It's never been so easy to keep up appearances with the girls (and your precious little paws) while indulging in libations and being seen at a chic locale such as Furio.
