Burgers, Pool Parties and More Pool Parties

The weekend will be conducting business poolside.

JUST A PINCHO

Pincho Factory Thinks Outside the Bun

After rigorous lab testing, the burger scientists at Pincho Factory have decided to do away with the typical hamburger bun. Instead, the Toston Burger wraps your five-ounce patty inside a pair of twice-fried, flattened green plantains, and tops your burger with muenster and cilantro garlic sauce. You may never go back.

Eating BBQ Poolside at the Mondrian

Days good for barbecue and poolside carousing: Labor Day. Also: all other days. Find both this weekend when Asia de Cuba grills up dishes like lechón asado (roast suckling pig) and Caribbean Spiced Chicken along with sides of corn and jicama slaw. Feel free to nap poolside, too.

Oh, Just Another Rooftop Pool Party

Now that your penthouse waterslide is under construction, you’ll need a new rooftop pool party to fill your Sunday afternoons. That’s where this fourth-floor soiree at the Dream’s pool deck comes in handy. Live DJs, mojito pitchers and unobstructed views of South Beach abound. Bring your own floaties.
