ONE-LINERS

Karaoke + Jokes = Karajoky

Starting tonight, the folks at Van Dyke Cafe are tweaking your usual happy hour equation. The drinks are still half off, but instead of belting out “Don’t Stop Believin’,” you’ll be honing your standup delivery. We hear it’s how Louis C.K. got his start.

Thursdays starting Oct 6, 5-7pm, Van Dyke Cafe, 846 Lincoln Rd, 305-534-3600

SECRET GARDEN

A Sneak Peek at Brickell Bier Garden

Soon, this massive courtyard will open, bringing the joys of Bavaria to Downtown. Until that moment, you can get a taste of Germanic splendor this weekend with live DJs, servers in lederhosen and pints of Radeberger. Bring your good stein.

Friday
SushiSamba Introduces Battleship Sushi
WRAP STAR

SushiSamba Introduces Battleship Sushi

Basically, this is a little surprise in the form of sushi. Called gunkan maki—or battleship maki—it’s rice wrapped in nori and topped with things like salmon roe. Try the Wagyu with quail egg or the foie gras with pear and eel sauce to really get a feel for the medium.

Available now, SushiSamba, 600 Lincoln Rd, 305-673-5337

RING OF FIRE

Dancing with Hula Girls atop the Dream

We’ve all been there: you’re making plans to properly commemorate this month’s full moon, and suddenly you’re overcome with the urge to carouse with hula girls and Hawaiian fire dancers. Preferably on a rooftop in South Beach. Boom. This party at the Dream. Sometimes the answers are so simple.

Sunday
A Classy Teatime at Vizcaya Café
KETTLE

A Classy Teatime at Vizcaya Café

You’re already familiar with the charms of the bayfront café at Vizcaya. And now that they’ve added this new tea-on-the-terrace service, you’ve got an added excuse to hit the sun-kissed patio for a quiet date on a Sunday afternoon. That and you’re a sucker for scones and clotted cream.
