Things to do for July 07, 2011

The Weekender

Twister, Rooftop Mojitos and Acrobats

The weekend works in mysterious ways.

Thursday
Crazy Cocktails at a Pop-Up Downtown
LOAD UP

Crazy Cocktails at a Pop-Up Downtown

There’s not much we can tell you about this secretive pop-up lounge. But we do know this: it’s organized by the chef from the GastroPod food truck and you’ll find food by the ’Pod alongside three space-age cocktails from a French Culinary Institute drink scientist. Yes, that’s a real thing.

Saturday
Rooftop Mojitos in the Grove
FAIR-WEATHER FRIEND

Rooftop Mojitos in the Grove

It’s about time you take your pool parties up a notch. Or at least up three floors. Hence, this new soiree on the rooftop of the Mayfair Hotel, where two DJs, mojitos and cabanas await. Proving what you always suspected: mojitos taste better with views of Biscayne Bay.

Saturdays starting Jul 9, 1-11pm, no cost, Mayfair Hotel, 3000 Florida Ave, 786-514-9886

Acrobats and a Vodka Open Bar
CIRQUE OF LIFE

Acrobats and a Vodka Open Bar

In a few weeks, Cirque Éloize (related to Cirque du Soleil) opens at the Arsht Center. But this Saturday, you’ll get a sneak peek of the proceedings—think acrobats, break-dancers and stunt bikers. Also, gratis vodka cocktails. Because you should never experience the circus with an empty glass.

Sunday
One Last Brunch at Four Seasons
WHOLE HOG

One Last Brunch at Four Seasons

Sad news: this is the last weekend Acqua will throw its massive brunch buffet before shuttering for a complete overhaul. Bid farewell by feasting on an endless raw bar, whole roasted pig, leg of lamb and bottomless champagne. Try not to get choked up at the caviar station.

Jul 10, 11:30am-3pm, $70, Acqua, 1435 Brickell Ave, 305-358-3535

Monday
Twister and Ping-Pong at the Standard
GAME NIGHT

Twister and Ping-Pong at the Standard

Mondays are great for kicking back and playing Scrabble or a game of Twister at home with friends. Or you could do the same at the Standard with a fully stocked bar, gaggles of yoga lovers and two DJs. Your Jenga skills deserve a good soundtrack.

Mondays, 7pm-midnight, no cost, The Standard, 40 Island Ave, 305-673-1717
