Things to do for November 10, 2011
Stone Crabs, Fire Dancers and Sushi
The weekend is transitioning to a winter tan.
Tonight at Villa 221, you’ll usher in the full moon the usual way: with fire dancers, drum circles, henna tattoo artists, sitarists and the occasional hula hoop enthusiast. You’ll also be privy to free capoeira classes and on-call masseuses. So... typical Thursday.
Chophouse Miami: your go-to for power steaks and patio-ing. And now they’ve got a new chef (the guy from Celebrity Cruises), meaning you’ll come here for Harissa Chicken Wings and maki rolls from their sleek new sushi bar. Power sushi is the new power steak.
You’re fully aware that it’s stone crab season. But if you’ve yet to order your batch, here’s a little incentive: from now through Sunday you can score $25 off your order of fresh-from-the-Keys crustaceans from George Stone Crab. Finally, your monogrammed bib will get some use.
Apparently, 11/11/11 is a lucky date. Which ought to help your chances of scoring a handsome work of art at this party for the Bakehouse. You’ll bounce between artist studios while noshing on passed apps and cocktails as DJs spin ’80s tunes. Try not to spill anything on the art.
Fireman Derek’s Pie Truck Is Here
Local pie maker/retired firefighter Fireman Derek will debut his first truck this weekend at the Fairchild’s Ramble festival. Expect the usual suspects: apple, pecan, sweet potato and the maestro’s signature pie—the tangy and tart key lime. Your dessert rolodex has been needing this.
