Things to do for August 25, 2011
Brazilian Dancers, a Beer Fest and The Breakfast Club
The weekend is out of the cone.
Tonight, you’ll want to catch happy hour in the Gusman lobby, then take in a screening of Judd Nelson’s finest work (The Breakfast Club), then join a DJ-fueled dance party on the stage. A Simple Minds remix: all but guaranteed.
Caution: you’re about to be surrounded by leggy tigresses. Relax, it’s just the birthday bash of club owner Nicola Siervo. To get in the festive mood, he’ll be flying in DJs from Ibiza and giving out animal masks to partygoers. So much sexier than noisemakers.
You picked up a few pointers at last year’s Beer Cook-Off at Lou’s. (Your McMuffin Ale: breathtaking.) This year’s contest promises more of the same—namely, cheftestants distributing samples of their microbrew-spiked delicacies. There’s still time to hone your Belgian beer waffles.
Barefoot parties on the sand to the tune of Brazilian drummers—worth the trip to Rio. But this weekend, you’ll only have to travel so far as Key Biscayne, where gratis caipirinhas will be flowing from 6 to 7pm and samba rhythms will continue after that. Shoes: optional.
There’s no reason to go without wine on a Monday night. Vita is right there with you, knocking half-off bottles all night long—which, coincidentally, also dovetails with their Miami Spice menu. There’s eggplant parmesan and rack of lamb—because you shouldn’t go without lamb on Mondays, either.
