Things to do for August 04, 2011

The Weekender

Sexy Cowgirls, $2 Sliders and James Bond

The weekend is a free agent.

Thursday
A Boozy Brownie at Michael’s
SINGLE MALT

A Boozy Brownie at Michael’s

Good: pairing dessert with a fine single malt scotch. Even better: combining the two in one bite. Say hello to this boozy treat: a Junk in da Trunk brownie, served in a pool of the Macallan 12-year toffee sauce with a scoop of smoked vanilla ice cream. Next up: tequila pie.

Meet 5 Napkin Burger’s $2 Slider
TWO-BUCK CHUCK

Meet 5 Napkin Burger’s $2 Slider

If there’s anything that happy hour on Lincoln Road could use, it’s more butcher hooks. And $4 draft beers chased with $2 sliders. And if that bar is also slinging two-buck spicy tuna rolls and pork taquitos, that’s fine, too. 

Mon-Fri, 4-7pm and 10pm-midnight, 5 Napkin Burger, 455 Lincoln Rd, 305-538-2277

The Essex’s New Movie Night
BIG PICTURE

The Essex’s New Movie Night

You’ve never been one to let high temps deter you from a summertime tradition: watching movies outdoors. Tonight’s screening of Johnny Depp’s Public Enemies—on the terrace of a hotel—sweetens the deal with gratis popcorn and a fully stocked bar. Mojitos always cool you down from the inside.

Aug 4, 8:30-10pm, no cost, Essex House, 1001 Collins Ave, 305-534-2700

Saturday
Just Some Mechanical Bull Riding
WELL HELLO, DOLLY

Just Some Mechanical Bull Riding

You’re invited to a PR maven’s mega-birthday bash this weekend. Why you’ll be there: “The Best Little Whorehouse in Miami” theme, which means mechanical bull rides, a haystack photo booth, cowgirls giving neck massages and three hours of gratis vodka cocktails. Don’t feel pressure to wear leather chaps.

Sunday
You, Duncan Quinn and 007
GOLD BOND

You, Duncan Quinn and 007

’Tis the weekend for movie screenings with cocktails. This time it’s at the Design District showroom of Brit tailor Duncan Quinn, who’ll be showing the Connery-era Bond flick From Russia with Love. And here the gin cocktails are gratis as well. Feel free to break out the tux.
