The Weekender

Samba, Fat Tuesday and Blintzes

The weekend calls shotgun.

Thursday
Meat Dresses at STK
RARE OCCASION

Meat Dresses at STK

Tonight, the designer of Lady Gaga’s meat dress (no, it wasn’t a butcher) will be holding a fashion show at STK in collaboration with other designers. You can expect to see rib eyes on models and gratis Chivas 18-year scotch for the first hour. Fingers crossed for a bacon bikini.

Mar 3, 9pm-midnight, no cost, STK, 2377 Collins Ave, 305-604-6988, RSVP here

Sunday
The Forge Launches Brunch
FRESH START

The Forge Launches Brunch

You’ll easily spend half the day lazing at the Forge’s new brunch, kicking off this Sunday with a ceviche bar and a spread that includes ricotta blintzes, Angus Short Rib Pot Pie and Malted Berry Pancakes. Helping you wash it all down: unlimited mimosas and bottomless Bloody Marys.

Going Brazilian at SushiSamba
PERCUSSION

Going Brazilian at SushiSamba

And once 9 o’clock rolls around, you’ll no doubt be ready to channel a bit of Rio with this Carnaval event on Lincoln Road. There’ll be samba dancers, batucada drummers and black-eyed-pea fritters, along with Brazilian cocktails like a Tangerine Honey Caipirinha. Which is sometimes your nickname.

Mar 6, 9pm-2am, SushiSamba, 600 Lincoln Rd, 305-673-5337

Tuesday
Consuming $3 Beers and Shrimp Po’boys
FAT TUESDAY

Consuming $3 Beers and Shrimp Po’boys

The next best thing to being in New Orleans for Mardi Gras: being with Irina Shayk for Mardi Gras. But right after that: the Shrimp and Sausage Po’boys, Crawfish Étouffée and $3 drafts of Hoegaarden and Leffe at Angelique in the Gables. You’ll catch up with Irina on Wednesday.

Introducing Jipsy Nefarious
PARTY PEOPLE

Introducing Jipsy Nefarious

You’ve probably been snapped by nightlife photographer—and UrbanDaddy contributor—Jipsy Nefarious at a party over the years. Try and spot yourself (and other familiar faces) on the walls of Butter Gallery on Tuesday, when she debuts her first solo show. Which she’ll probably also document.
