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.
Things to do for November 24, 2010
Blueberry Bellinis, Pumpkin Gelato and the ’80s
The weekend is gobbling.
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.
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.
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...
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.
