The weekend is taking its talents to South Beach.

The Webster Surf Pop-Up Opens

Just in time for your summer’s triumphant second half, the Webster is transforming into a surf store, selling beachy button-downs, boards and swim trunks. You will officially welcome it at a cocktail party tonight at 7pm. Then, at 10pm, it’s over to the Standard for surf movies by the pool. There’ll be a shuttle... or you could just surf there.

HUSH HUSH

Gastropod’s Secret New Menu

Your favorite burger-dispensing Airstream trailer just launched a covert menu that won’t be listed on the truck, so only insiders like you will even know it’s real and not just urban legend. When you get up to the window, ask for a Sloppy Dirty: slow-cooked brisket smothered in tangy BBQ sauce and topped with a poached egg. And make sure no one’s following you.

Saturday
Soul Food and a Sax Man in Overtown
HOT SAX

Soul Food and a Sax Man in Overtown

You’ve long recognized Overtown as a slice of downtown that’s brimming with art, music and good food. (Also: overpasses.) Saturday is your chance to blow it out down there with flowing vodka, a live saxophonist, sweet potato pie and a DJ spinning Motown. As far as we know, the saxophonist is not named Sergio.

Sunday
One Year of Mondrian Sundays
BIRTHDAY SUIT

One Year of Mondrian Sundays

A year ago, the Mondrian launched a brunch, and your Sundays have never been the same. This weekend they’re celebrating one year of successfully incorporating cocktails and bikinis into a brunch format the only way they know how: with even more cocktails and bikinis. From noon to 2pm, you’ll sip gratis cachaça drinks, followed immediately by a Betsey Johnson swimwear show. This is your city...

Jul 18, noon-8pm, no cost, Mondrian, 1100 West Ave, 305-514-1983

Bikinis and Champagne at Nikki Beach
TAN LINES

Bikinis and Champagne at Nikki Beach

The other big brunch option this weekend is over at Nikki Beach, where, in addition to their normal all-you-can-eat Sunday affair—that’s unlimited Belgian waffles, and platters of smoked meats and cheeses—they’ll have swimwear models working the outdoor runway at 2 and 3pm in honor of Swim Week. As if you needed a reason...

Jul 18, 11am-4pm, $33, Nikki Beach, 1 Ocean Dr, 786-515-1130
