The weekend may or may not own a bunny suit.

PERK ALERT

Handsomeness in a Box, for 44% Off

We’ve hand-selected the finest shaving products Nickel has to offer—and we’re giving them to you for 44% off. Never before in history has such a collection of luxurious grooming material been assembled in one place. (Well, outside of Tom Selleck’s medicine cabinet...)

Watching Polo on the Sand
EQUESTRIAN

Watching Polo on the Sand

Polo season is here. More precisely, beach polo is here. For the next four days, the sand behind the Setai will be a blur of mallets, horses, white pants and—with a VIP ticket—vodka open bars and tipsy socialites. Your favorite kind of blur.

Apr 21-24, various times, $75-$150, behind the Setai from 20th to 22nd St, tickets here

Friday
Soccer in the Middle of Midtown
GOAL-ORIENTED

Soccer in the Middle of Midtown

Random fact: there’s an open-to-the-public outdoor soccer complex near Midtown. Relevance to you: this Friday, and every Friday thereafter, they’re hosting pickup soccer games on one of their astroturf mini fields (usually you have to be part of their league). Another random fact: you look great in a headband.

Fridays starting Apr 22, 8-10pm, $10, Soccer Town, 2728 NE 2nd Ave, 786-263-9305

A Pot Doc from the Cocaine Cowboys Set
UP IN SMOKE

A Pot Doc from the Cocaine Cowboys Set

If you missed the sold-out premiere of Square Grouper last weekend, it’s okay. You can catch encore screenings this weekend, starting with this midnight showing. The movie—from the Cocaine Cowboys guys—follows Florida’s pot-smuggling culture in the 1970s. We had no idea such a thing existed.

Sunday
Latin Brunching on the Ocean
HAVANA PARTY

Latin Brunching on the Ocean

So chef Douglas Rodriguez recently combined two restaurants into one—De Rodriguez Cuba on Ocean. Take in the pan-Latin seafood splendor this weekend when he kicks off brunch with pitchers of Plum Fig Spice sangria and a buffet of ceviche, roasted pig and Cuban sandwiches. It’s like Easter in Havana.

Sundays starting Apr 24, 11:30am-3:30pm, $30, De Rodriguez Cuba, 101 Ocean Dr, 305-672-6624
