Things to do for March 10, 2011

The Weekender

Bespoke Burgers, Casino Parties and Jazzy Jeff

The weekend is chilling out, maxing and relaxing all cool.

Thursday
An Indian Feast at Café Sambal
CURRY FEVER

An Indian Feast at Café Sambal

You’ve always felt there weren’t enough decent sitar players on Brickell. Café Sambal understands. Tonight, and every Thursday thereafter, the bayfront spot will morph into an Indian banquet where you’ll get your curry—or kebab or saag paneer—fix with this family-style feast. No, the sitar player doesn’t take requests.

Thursdays starting Mar 10, 6-11pm, $45, Café Sambal, 500 Brickell Key Dr, 305-913-8358

Custom-Made Burgers at MIA
HOT BUNS

Custom-Made Burgers at MIA

Change is afoot on the airport burger front: West Coast slider purveyors The Counter just opened at MIA. So now you’ll wait for your flight by designing your own burger from a dizzying array of options (nine cheeses, 25 toppings, 16 sauces, four different buns). Don’t miss your flight.

Friday
Slots and Street Food, Together at Last
TRUCK STOP

Slots and Street Food, Together at Last

You’ve been to food truck courts at gas stations, lumberyards and railroad museums. But a casino—that’s a first. Make lunchtime history tomorrow when 25 chuckwagons (The Fish Box, GastroPod, Ms. Cheezious) gather on the grounds of Magic City Casino for a daytime food rally. Bring quarters.

DJ Jazzy Jeff at the W Fort Lauderdale
HOTEL BEL-AIR

DJ Jazzy Jeff at the W Fort Lauderdale

Seeing the ’90s hip-hop icon—and Fresh Prince costar—will be a blast from the past. Helping smooth things over: the swanky digs at the W’s Living Room bar and Miami’s resident spinner DJ Irie. Recommended attire: gold sunglasses.

Mar 11, 9pm-midnight, $20, Living Room, 401 N Fort Lauderdale Beach Blvd, 954-414-8302

Sunday
A Massive Paella-Fueled Brunch
PANNING

A Massive Paella-Fueled Brunch

Nothing against omelets, but your brunches could use more... caliente. Behold: the new buffet at Andalus, with three types of paella (including black squid ink), platters of roasted pork loin, Serrano ham and tortilla española. Plus your first glass of sangria is on the house. Nothing against Bloody Marys, either.

Sundays, 11:30am-5pm, $30, Andalus, 35 NE 40th St, 305-400-4324
