The Weekender

Grilled Cheese, $3 Beers and Dreidels

The weekend will definitely be there by the third quarter.

Thursday

PERK ALERT

An Art Basel Dinner and Boozy Truffles

Basel’s finally here—the openings, the receptions, the after-parties with Brangelina. We’ve reserved you a seat at Duncan Quinn’s dinner party with five courses from STK, paired with champagne and cognac. Plus: Perks brings you the Black Tie Collection, an exclusive set of boozy chocolate truffles. Save some for Angie.

Primary Flight’s Circus Party
GAME ON

Primary Flight’s Circus Party

To celebrate the opening of the world’s largest street installation, Primary Flight is throwing a circus-like blowout at Cafeina tonight. This is your chance for gratis cocktails, Cheetos and a courtyard with board games like Candy Land. At press time, the inclusion of Sorry! could not be confirmed.

Dec 2, 10pm-12am, no cost, Cafeina, 297 NW 23rd St, 305-438-0792

Friday
A BBQ Trailer Inside an Art Fair
FLAME GRILLED

A BBQ Trailer Inside an Art Fair

The PULSE fair will have many jaw-dropping/mind-boggling/face-melting exhibits. Our favorite: this one by a couple of crazy Texans known as Okay Mountain. It looks a bit like the BBQ trailer that Homer Simpson would design, complete with everything from stylized condiments to a stylized gas tank. Your move, Weber.

Dec 3-5, $15, PULSE, 1400 N Miami Ave, 212-255-2327

Ms. Cheezious Truck Debuts
MOBILE CHEESE

Ms. Cheezious Truck Debuts

Another week, another glorious chuck wagon. This one’s slinging gourmet grilled cheese sandwiches like the Grilled Blue and Bacon (bacon, blue cheese and green onion on sourdough) and sides of brown gravy and chili fries. Find it at Rainbow City this weekend, or all over town post-Basel.

Saturday
Competitive Dreideling and Free Vodka
SPIN CYCLE

Competitive Dreideling and Free Vodka

You’ve won the Miami darts league. You captured the South Florida Billiards Championship. You placed second in the All-Valley Karate Tournament. And now it’s time to tackle the hyper-pressurized sport of competitive dreidel spinning. After your victory, you’ll cool off with some gratis vodka. And remember: it’s all in the wrist.

Dec 4, 10pm-2am, no cost, The Vagabond, 30 NE 14th St, 305-379-0508

Sunday
Brunching Goes Wild at Bar
DO OVER

Brunching Goes Wild at Bar

So there’s this outfit out of Los Angeles called The Do-Over. And what they do is go around organizing epic brunch parties. (Tough gig.) This weekend they’ll be bringing their show to 14th Street, taking over Bar for a daytime bacchanalia fueled by DJs, burgers and $3 beers. Nothing says bacchanalia like hamburgers.

Dec 5, 2-5pm, no cost, Bar, 28 NE 14th St
