The Weekender

Blueberry Bellinis, Pumpkin Gelato and the ’80s

The weekend is gobbling.

Wednesday
An ’80s Prom at the Vagabond
LEG WARMERS

An ’80s Prom at the Vagabond

When you think about it, there’s really only one way to kick off Thanksgiving weekend: with an ’80s-themed dance party. Sweat Records is filling the Vagabond with half a dozen DJs, a photo booth, $5 prom punch and Molly Ringwald look-alikes. Your recommended attire: Gordon Gekko casual.

Nov 24, 10pm, $5, The Vagabond, 30 NE 14th St, 305-379-0508

Now Rolling: a Gelato Truck
SPOONS

Now Rolling: a Gelato Truck

It may be November, but it’s still hot out. Which makes you crave a tall ice cream cone packed with scoops of gelato in flavors like Pumpkin Pie and Coconut Grove. And preferably from the city’s first gelato-slinging truck. Which, you should know for identification purposes, is a brilliant shade of purple.

A New Mall for Food Trucks
PARKED

A New Mall for Food Trucks

And speaking of food trucks—you could use a place to find all of them. Enter this centralized meeting point for all mobile cuisine, called the Miami Street Food Court. Depending on the night, you’ll find the likes of the Fish Box, Latin Burger and CheeseMe Mobile. No word on Orange Julius.

Now open, Tue-Thu, 5:30-10pm, Bird Rd and SW 65th Ave

Friday
Half-Off Massages at the Viceroy
BETTER TO GIVE...

Half-Off Massages at the Viceroy

This Friday morning, the Spa at the Viceroy is giving you half off all massages and treatments at their Philippe Starck-designed relaxation hut, making that 60-minute hot stone rubdown $62.50. The only catch: you gotta bring two unwrapped toys for charity. You knew that old Boggle game would come in handy...

Sunday
Drinking Endless Organic Cocktails
BEACHSIDE

Drinking Endless Organic Cocktails

The post-Thanksgiving conundrum: you want to detox, but you also want to drink. Which brings us to the Palms, where they’re rolling out bottomless organic cocktails. Do the brunch buffet, and an extra $20 gets you unlimited nourishment like blueberry Bellinis and acai martinis. Your body deserves this.

Sundays, 11:30am-3pm, brunch $39, cocktails $20, Essensia, 3025 Collins Ave, 305-534-0505
