Gratis Cigars, $5 Cocktails at Area 31

Starting tomorrow, the Epic’s 16th-floor lounge channels Havana on Friday nights with a five-hour party set to live salsa music. Cocktails like the Copa Verde (tequila, lime, avocado puree) are half off and they’ll be doling out complimentary cigars all night long. Remember to wear your smoking guayabera.

A Bikini Show at Gulfstream
DULY KNOTTED

A Bikini Show at Gulfstream

And on the chance you’re hightailing it to Broward for a little break from South Beach, there’s this close-to-midnight bikini fashion show of handmade crocheted swimsuits. In other words, knitting’s higher purpose.

Saturday
Cafeina’s Military Burlesque Bacchanalia
STARS AND STRIPES

Cafeina’s Military Burlesque Bacchanalia

It’s Memorial Day weekend. (Maybe you’ve heard.) So naturally you’ll be commemorating the occasion the usual way: with a sexy burlesque troupe dressed in army fatigues, fire dancers, fireworks and complimentary “American Flag” shots. You’ve always admired women in camouflage.

Monday
DB Bistro’s Sandwich Bar
RAISING THE BAR

DB Bistro’s Sandwich Bar

Dilemma: you need a spot downtown for quick and casual lunches with clients. Something impressive, yet comfortable. Solution: the new sandwich menu offered at this place’s marble bar. Think Lobster-Shrimp Rolls and craft beers. Paving the way for the three-microbrew lunch.

Tuesday
DIY Roasted Pork Buns at Gigi
SELF-SERVE

DIY Roasted Pork Buns at Gigi

Gigi’s launching their take on the Korean bossam—a surf and turf mélange of oysters and roasted pork buns that you make yourself. Fourteen dollars gets you a platter with all the fixings including kimchi and pickles, while a bucket of five PBRs is five bucks. Which translates to DIY bartending.

Tuesdays starting May 31, 6pm-3am, Gigi, 3470 N Miami Ave, 305-573-1520, see the flier
