Things to do for May 12, 2011
Pop-Up Concerts, Japanese Sangria and Jorge Perez’s Suits
The weekend has perfect pitch.
Normally you’d leave this annual charity sale to Ferragamo-obsessed socialites. But this year, bigwigs like Jorge Perez have given up their Ted Baker shirts and Zegna suits for the cause. Ties are $1 to $50 and suits are going for less than $500. Think of it as another mini real estate boom.
You’ve enjoyed symphonies in some pretty unexpected places (Jay-Z’s yacht was a doozy), but airline arrivals halls, not so much. And yet here it is: a free concert performed by a 90-piece orchestra in MIA’s south terminal. We hear there’s an after-party at baggage claim.
Sad news: stone crab season ends Sunday, making this all-you-can-eat stone crab dinner all the more poignant (and, well, tasty). Stake out a table on the oceanfront patio, and settle in for four hours of crustaceans, heirloom tomato salad and smashed potatoes. Seafood food comas are the best food comas.
Five Hours of Brunch at Vida
You’ve got your choice of two new brunches this weekend—this massive spread at the Fontainebleau works if you’re sticking close to the beach. Also works if you’re in the mood for lobster thermidor, a duck confit sauté station and endless mimosas. You prefer your confit prepared à la minute.
Japanese Sangria and Endless Sushi
... And across the causeway there’s the debut of Zuma’s weekend feast. Look forward to a robata buffet with beef tataki, steamed mussels and an ample sushi bar. In your bottomless glass: Japanese Sangria made with sake, or champagne refilled by magnum-wielding servers. Your job: helping lighten their load.
