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.
Things to do for December 23, 2010
Massive Pool Partying, Co-Ed Steam Rooms and Pizza
The less said about the weekend’s reindeer sweater, the better.
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.
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.
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.
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.
