The Weekender

Free Margaritas, Duck Waffles and a Bikini Sale

The weekend is going to go home, enjoy this one, and then it’s back to work on Monday.

Steak: It’s What’s for Thanksgiving

This Thanksgiving, you’re thinking beyond the turkey—by flanking your game bird with assorted chops, ribs and filets from Robinson’s Prime Reserve. $65 gets you $100 of the same premium meats that presidents, royalty and rock stars have enjoyed. Which works out, considering your Thanksgiving guest list (we’re looking at you, Bush Senior).

80% Off Swim Trunks and Lingerie
EXPOSED

80% Off Swim Trunks and Lingerie

In this great city of ours, it’s always swimsuit season. And negligee season. So you’ll like this warehouse sale, where Vilebrequin’s durable line of swim trunks starts at $25, and La Perla lingerie, underthings and bikinis are up to 80% off. You remain steadfastly pro-bikini.

Mon-Fri through Nov 19, Prima Vista, 1680 Michigan Ave, 305-538-3500

Consuming Free Margaritas and Tacos
SALTED RIM

Consuming Free Margaritas and Tacos

It’s not every day a tequila bar opens with four hours of free food and drinks. In fact, it almost never happens. But today it will. In honor of their shiny new agave bar, Tacontento is dishing you frozen ’ritas, shots, Mexican beer, shrimp and pork tacos and chicken quesadillas. Price: nada.

Nov 11, 6-10pm, no cost, Tacontento, 715 N Lincoln Ln, 305-673-1552

Friday
$8 Mint Juleps at the Mondrian
EIGHT IS ENOUGH

$8 Mint Juleps at the Mondrian

Friday night is the official start of your weekend, and now you can usher it in with Pear Sidecars, old-school mint juleps and tuna tacos at the Mondrian’s relaunched happy hour out by the pool. Everything is $8, including valet, cocktails and small plates of Char Sui Beef Sliders.

Thu-Fri starting Nov 11, 6-9pm, Mondrian, 1100 West Ave, 305-514-1500

Art, Now with an Open Bar
NICE PAINTING

Art, Now with an Open Bar

Another weekend, another liquor-fueled art party. This time, you’ll be treated to an open bar with rum cocktails, a grilled cheese station, pizza, cupcakes and a performance by the DJ outfit Panic Bomber. Oh yeah, you can also walk away with some art.

Sunday
Frog Legs and Duck Waffles in Midtown
TASTES LIKE CHICKEN

Frog Legs and Duck Waffles in Midtown

This Sunday, you could do scrambled eggs and pancakes. That’d be fine. Or you could frog leg it up with Sugarcane’s new brunch, with Truffled Toad in the Hole (frog legs on brioche) and Duck and Waffles with mustard maple syrup. No word on whether it’s Dijon mustard maple syrup.

Sat-Sun starting Nov 13, 11:30am-5pm, Sugarcane, 3250 NE 1st Ave, 786-369-0353
