Things to do for April 07, 2011
Poolside Brunching, Boozy Snow Cones and Oysters
The weekend is pre-shucked.
Your favorite Airstream trailer/food truck GastroPod is making a rare Beach appearance at Chow Down Grill in Surfside tonight. Inside there’s a charity dinner happening, but outside you can feast on Bánh mì Pork Tacos and Short Rib Sliders. You prefer your tacos alfresco anyway.
’Tis the season for poolside happy hours on the bay. This week the Standard enters the game with half off beer, wine, cocktails, oysters and snacks (including $7 tater tots). It’s like your childhood cafeteria collided with a raw bar.
Boozy Snow Cones at Coco de Ville
At Coco’s one-year anniversary, you’ll find gratis boozy snow cones and, from 11pm to midnight, Jell-O shots. Then, the after-party: a haze of feather-clad dancers, confetti, dueling DJs and bottle service. So basically, just like your first birthday party.
When one of the best vintage houses in the city decides to mark down its wares by 90%, here’s what you’ll find: old-school ’80s Polo and Gant button-downs for $5 to $40. Oh, and for the ladies: Pucci scarves and YSL shoes. Footloose soundtrack sold separately.
Bottomless Brunching in South Beach
From now on, the National is giving you access to their 205-foot-long pool along with a massive brunch. For $39, you get waffles, leg of lamb and smoked salmon, while another $10 guarantees bottomless mimosas and Bloody Marys. Might want to bust out the gold Speedo for this one.
