Things to do for April 14, 2011

The Weekender

Rooftop Bikinis, Bacon Burgers and Block Parties

The weekend always files on time.

Thursday
Cupcakes and Bacon Burgers in Midtown
ON POINT

Cupcakes and Bacon Burgers in Midtown

High on your list of needs: a morning-to-night croissant and red velvet cupcake hookup. Enter this place, a new café for casual dinners of Octopus Salad or the Sweet Point Burger topped with bacon, ham, fried egg and chips. It’s like a bacon burger, squared.

Saturday
A 17-Hour Block Party
BLOCK BUSTER

A 17-Hour Block Party

Your favorite indie record shop is celebrating its sixth anniversary this weekend. Their gift to you: a daylong block party with performances from two dozen local bands and DJs, a food truck rally and gratis beer. You love DJ-fueled birthday parties.

Apr 16, 10am-3am, no cost, Sweat Records, 5505 N 2nd Ave, 786-693-9309

Rooftop Bikinis Downtown
STRINGS ATTACHED

Rooftop Bikinis Downtown

It’s been a while since you witnessed a rooftop bikini fashion show (at least a week). Here to rectify the situation: this showcase of two-piecers populated by 40 models sporting the works of 10 designers. It’s best to approach these things with an open mind. And lots of cocoa butter.

Apr 16, 4-8pm, $25, Marriott Biscayne Bay, 1633 N Bayshore Dr, 786-600-8210, tickets here

Montaco’s Goodbye Party
VAMOS

Montaco’s Goodbye Party

Now that winter is over, the taco gypsies behind the NYC-based truck are heading back north. Bid them farewell at The Stage as they sling their last Playero tacos. Bonus: bring one of Montaco’s stickers and get half off Brendan O’Hara’s performance inside. Consider it a taco badge of honor.

Sunday
Bayside Brunching in the Grove
SHELL SHOCK

Bayside Brunching in the Grove

After a day of outdoor concerting, a restorative brunch may be in order. We suggest the Grove Isle’s latest mimosa-laden contender. Your spread includes unlimited champagne, oysters, Char-Grilled Flank Steak and amazing views of the bay. Nothing revives like a waterfront steak.

Sundays, 11am-3pm, $45, Gibraltar, 4 Grove Isle Dr, 305-857-5007
