Things to do for August 27, 2010

The Weekender

Beer, Broads and Biscuits

The weekend is on Miami time.

Friday
Designer Neckwear from Britain, Half Off
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Designer Neckwear from Britain, Half Off

This week, Perks is bringing you cutting-edge designer ties from Motto and Crest, for half off. Hailing from across the pond, these ties are manufactured in the English tradition, combining classic menswear fabrics (like tweed) with dashes of more unconventional ones (like leather). Take note: a tweed-and-leather suit is still not a good idea.

Jazz and Beer at the Bass
SAXY

Jazz and Beer at the Bass

If you’re in the mood to class it up tonight, head over to the oasis of good taste in South Beach that is the Bass Museum. Starting tonight and continuing through September, there’ll be live jazz and passed Grolsches in the courtyard. This is the right way to autumn.

Every other Friday, Aug 27-Sep 24, 7-9pm, $10, Bass Museum, 2121 Park Ave, 305-673-7530

Dog Bar Now Open in Midtown
THE BARKEASY

Dog Bar Now Open in Midtown

Let’s say you were a dog. A handsome dog. A boxer, a lab, a golden retriever. You’d definitely be hanging out at the Dog Bar, now open in Midtown. A nonalcoholic haunt for pooches, it’s got everything from fancy dog collars and chew toys to a fully stocked biscuit bar. We hear they even play a little poker in the back...

Now open, The Dog Bar, 3301 NE First Ave, 786-837-0904

Saturday
A Rum-Filled Concert at B Bar
STOKED

A Rum-Filled Concert at B Bar

The Betsy hotel’s underground speakeasy is hosting Atlanta rockers Stokeswood (the South’s answer to Vampire Weekend) on Saturday. Our suggestion: dinner at BLT Steak upstairs, then downstairs for the performance and complimentary Sailor Jerry cocktails. Every concert deserves a rib eye.

Aug 28, 10pm-3am, no cost, B Bar at The Betsy, 1440 Ocean Dr, 305-531-3934

Sunday
A Block Party at Segafredo
FOURSOME

A Block Party at Segafredo

If you’re up for a scene on Sunday, grab three friends, claim one of the tables outside Segafredo (every party of four gets a bottle of prosecco) and prepare for DJ-fueled 10th-anniversary mayhem. Think: Brazilians dancing on the tables, Italians... acting all Italian and live tribal/bohemian music. This could be epic, or it could be merely legendary.

Aug 29, 5-11pm, no cost, Segafredo, 1040 Lincoln Rd, 305-673-0047

Wednesday
Drinking with Beautiful Art Types
VISTAS

Drinking with Beautiful Art Types

You might have heard about a pack of comely art lovers called the MOCA Shakers that gets together every so often to sip cocktails and talk art. (Like a book club, but with more Damien Hirst.) This Wednesday they’ll be convening at Area 31’s 16th floor bar to art it up over free Grey Goose cocktails. Oh, and the girl-to-guy ratio is usually 3:1. We like your odds.

Sep 1, 7-9pm, no cost, Area 31, 270 Biscayne Blvd Way, 305-424-5234, RSVP here
