Pop-Up Concerts, Japanese Sangria and Jorge Perez’s Suits

The weekend has perfect pitch.

SALE-ING

80% Off Hermès Ties and Gucci Suits

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.

May 13, 6-9pm, $25; May 14, 10am-5pm, $10; Shops at Mayfair, 3090 Mary St, 305-446-6216

Saturday
A Pop-Up Symphony at MIA
WITH THE BAND

A Pop-Up Symphony at MIA

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.

May 14, 2-4pm, no cost, MIA, 3rd Fl, Meeter & Greeter Lobby, 2100 NW 42nd Ave, 305-275-5666

Endless Stone Crabs and Water Views
STONED

Endless Stone Crabs and Water Views

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.

Sunday
Five Hours of Brunch at Vida
FLUTES

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.

Sundays starting May 15, 10am-3pm, $59, Vida, 4441 Collins Ave, 305-538-2000

Japanese Sangria and Endless Sushi
MISTER ROBATA

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.

Sundays starting May 15, noon-2:30pm, $75, Zuma, 270 Biscayne Blvd Way, 305-577-0277
