The Weekender

Boozy Brownies, Bespoke Suits and a Pool Party

Well, if it isn’t the weekend again, back for more.

Thursday
Bacon Bourbon Brownies on Game Day
PROBLEM SOL’VED

Bacon Bourbon Brownies on Game Day

Football: it’s back. And when the game’s on, you can’t be bothered to man the grill. Here to help—the two Trump hotel chefs behind catering outfit Sol Kitchen. They’ll deliver a four-course feast including short rib sliders and Bacon Bourbon Brownies. You like to outsource your boozy baked goods.

Drinking Gin While Shopping
SUIT YOURSELF

Drinking Gin While Shopping

You may get bamboozled into attending shopping parties tonight as part of Fashion’s Night Out. Your play: suggest the Design District, where you’ll duck into Brit designer Duncan Quinn’s store for a few gin cocktails and maybe a bespoke suit fitting or two. You can never stop at just one.

Friday
Manu Chao Under the Stars
ME GUSTA

Manu Chao Under the Stars

So you’ve been courting this multilingual ingenue who’s got a thing for outdoor concerts and eclectic world music. Might have to take her to this performance at Bayfront, where French-Spanish singer Manu Chao will perform his danceable rock-funk in no less than six languages. Funk needs no translation.

Sep 9, 7pm, $33.50, Klipsch Amphitheater at Bayfront Park, 301 N Biscayne Blvd, 305-672-5202

Saturday
The Last Pool Party at the Four Seasons
PLAYING POOL

The Last Pool Party at the Four Seasons

Like any other Sunday, you’ll be sitting poolside sipping a caipirinha and nibbling on frozen grapes while a butler sprays you with Evian mist. Only this time you’ll be at the Four Seasons, bidding farewell to their weekly summer pool party with this last hurrah. Until next summer, that is.

Sep 10, 11am-7pm, $25, Four Seasons, 1435 Brickell Ave, 305-358-3535

Pies + Fried Chicken = Yes, Please
THIGH MASTER

Pies + Fried Chicken = Yes, Please

And if you’re more in the mood for homemade pies and fried chicken (and really, when aren’t you), then you’ll want to hit this country-themed hoedown at the Barnacle. Sample 30 homemade pies and then dig into Sustain’s fried chicken thighs. No word yet on fried chicken thigh pie.

Sep 10, noon-3pm, $35, The Barnacle, 3485 Main Hwy, Coconut Grove
