The Weekender

Hula Girls, Porktoberfest and Your Hair

The weekend is wearing a lei for some reason.

Thursday
Exclusive Shoes and Bacon Explosions
PERK ALERT

Exclusive Shoes and Bacon Explosions

We’re getting you the exclusive on a couple one-of-a-kind shoes from the venerable Maine-based cobbling outfit, Rancourt & Co. (Ralph Lauren’s go-to guys.) Then we’re airmailing you three Bacon Explosions (enough said). And finally, we’re getting you half off a champagne-soaked endless summer at NYC’s hottest hotel. Just go with it... 

Drinking Beer at a Barbershop
GROOMSMEN

Drinking Beer at a Barbershop

Your new favorite grooming den is throwing a grand-opening party tonight. On the agenda: a ribbon-cutting with the mayor and an open bar stocked with beer, vodka and wine. There’s also a local tailor to take custom suit measurements. They promise to match the suit to your new ’do.

Saturday
Weekend Luau-ing with Hula Girls
HOOP DREAMS

Weekend Luau-ing with Hula Girls

It’s been a while (okay, a week) since your last luau. This Polynesian-style pig roast in Sunny Isles Beach ought to rectify the situation. There’s a chance the hula girls, fire dancers and a bikini fashion show may distract you from the porky buffet and mai tai bar. A small chance.

Sep 24, 5-10pm, $25, Solé on the Ocean, 17315 Collins Ave, Sunny Isles Beach, 786-923-9300

20 Cigars. 20 Rums. Four Hours.
OLD STOGIE

20 Cigars. 20 Rums. Four Hours.

Saturday is also your chance to sample 20 different kinds of Caribbean rum and the same number of cigars while roaming the grounds of the Tempo Miami. Sip and puff as you make your way through, all the while wondering if this combo is the secret to Fidel’s longevity.

Partying with the Symphony
SYM CITY

Partying with the Symphony

Or you could bask in some high culture at this after-party for the New World Symphony’s season kickoff. There’ll be an open vodka bar, of course, but also musicians (playing Latin rock) and a high quotient of the city’s comely arts patrons. Consider it your unofficial start to gala season.

Tuesday
Pubbelly’s Porktoberfest
SPECIAL K

Pubbelly’s Porktoberfest

More is better. Especially when taken in the context of Bavarian pork specialties. Pubbelly’s celebrating German-style this week with an Oktoberfest menu including spätzle noodles with pork belly, wiener schnitzel and Ayinger Bräu-Weisse beer on tap. Time to dust off the lederhosen.

Sep 27-Oct 2, Pubbelly, 1418 20th St, 305-532-7555
