Things to do for October 14, 2010

The Weekender

Heavy-Metal Burgers, $5 Sushi and Polo Shirts

The weekend is exhausted from miner-rescuing.

Thursday
Looking Good After a Hangover
BRAND-NEW PERKS

Looking Good After a Hangover

Scientists have shown that rough nights lead to rougher mornings-after. Fortunately, the scientists at Nickel have invented Morning After Rescue Gel—a hangover-curing face cream infused with caffeine, citrus and soy protein to smooth any lingering roughness. Now, our scientists at Perks are bringing it to you for 40% off. Let’s hear it for science.

Van Halen and Burgers in Aventura
FAIR WARNING

Van Halen and Burgers in Aventura

The space that was Bar Rosso is now a rock-and-roll den of beef and fries called Heavy Burger. You’ll want to bookmark this place for post-mall burger conquests of nine different patties, including the 10-ounce Angus-beefed Motley Burger and the avocado-injected Maiden. No word on Poison poppers.

80% Off at Tomas Maier
BEST SUMMER (GEAR) EVER

80% Off at Tomas Maier

We’re midway through autumn, but then again, stick your hand out the window: not so cold. So you’ll appreciate the fact that Tomas Maier is taking as much as 80% off their summer gear. Think inexpensive thin tees and swim trunks, slim-fitting polos for $30 (originally $150) and canvas jackets at just over $100.

Now through Oct 31, Tomas Maier, 170 NE 40th St, 305-576-8383

Friday
$5 Sake and Sushi at the Viceroy
TURNING JAPANESE

$5 Sake and Sushi at the Viceroy

The Viceroy’s 15th-floor restaurant has launched a sushi and sake menu, which means every weekday during happy hour, you can feast on sushi rolls and sake cocktails for $5 each. Chase that Japanese Lychee with a spicy crab/avocado/jalapeño roll. Then go home and watch Mr. Baseball.

Sunday
Nonstop Ceviche Diving
GOES TO 11

Nonstop Ceviche Diving

And now to this week’s most important item: the first annual Ceviche Throwdown. You’ll make your way through 11 chef stations, stopping at each to sample marinated seafood from the likes of Timon Balloo, Douglas Rodriguez and Clay Conley (all ceviche studs) and taste 11 different wines. Suggested attire is throwdown casual.

Tuesday
Endless Stone Crabs
CLAWING

Endless Stone Crabs

Tomorrow it becomes official: Dwyane Wade’s hamstring is fully healed. Also: stone crab season begins. Celebrate the latter at the Four Seasons’ 1435 lounge, where you can eat all the freshly harvested stone crabs you can handle, dished out to you in super-convenient one-pound increments. You deserve this.

Tuesdays starting Oct 19, 5-11pm, $65, 1435, 1435 Brickell Ave, 305-358-3535
