Things to do for December 23, 2010

The Weekender

Massive Pool Partying, Co-Ed Steam Rooms and Pizza

The less said about the weekend’s reindeer sweater, the better.

Thursday
A New Taco Wagon Debuts
ROLL UP

A New Taco Wagon Debuts

Tonight you can catch the debut of black and green taco truck MexZican Gourmet. The taco selection includes a Legacy made with brisket, chorizo and chicharrón, and there’s also a deep-fried 10-inch hot dog, wrapped in bacon and guacamole. Might want to split that one.

Gratis Steam Room-ing at the Standard
SWEAT IT

Gratis Steam Room-ing at the Standard

You still need to get yourself something for the holidays. Our suggestion: buy a gift certificate at the Standard spa, and you’ll earn two free “get sweaty” passes, granting you access to the co-ed steam room and outdoor baths at the hotel. You love outdoor baths.

Now until Dec 31, The Standard, 40 Island Ave, 305-673-1717

Friday
New Pizza from Jonathan Eismann
LOTS OF DOUGH

New Pizza from Jonathan Eismann

The pizzas at Eismann’s Pizza Volante have never let you down, so you’ll be happy to know you can now find his Roman-style pies in the lobby of the Mayfair Hotel. Head straight for the wood-burning oven, churning out thin-crust pizzas with toppings like chorizo, speck and Prosciutto di Parma.

Now open, Spartico Restaurant, 3000 Florida Ave, 305-779-5100

A Poolside Blowout at the W
CONNECTIONS

A Poolside Blowout at the W

Christmas Eve comes but once a year. We say spend it with peers, colleagues and the occasional cougar. The W South Beach’s Eve Party is a thousand-person behemoth taking place poolside tomorrow night. Get there between 9 and 11 and you’ll score complimentary vodka cocktails.

Dec 24, 9pm-5am, no cost, Wall, 2201 Collins Ave, 305-938-3130

Sunday
Sweetbread Sliders for Brunch
POD CAST

Sweetbread Sliders for Brunch

Chef Jeremiah Bullfrog, the bearded chef behind the popular GastroPod food truck, strikes out with another of his pop-up “pod” brunches. Which means you can shrug off that holiday hangover with Sweetbread Sliders with Pickled Peaches and Watercress, Orange Crush Floats and Kahlua Ice Lattes. Happy shrugging.

Dec 26, 12:30-2:30pm, $28, Gab Studios, 105 NW 23 St, 305-200-5349
