Things to do for December 08, 2011

The Weekender

Pork Buns and Daniel Boulud

The weekend has no interest in playing third base.

Thursday
An Icelandic Rockumentary
POUR SOME SIGUR

An Icelandic Rockumentary

Maybe you’re dating an architect from Reykjavík. Maybe not. But either way, you might want to check out this pulsing, strobe-lit film, Inni. It chronicles Icelandic band Sigur Rós’s 10-year rise to fame. And is a great way to meet an architect from Reykjavík.

Dec 8-11, $10.50, O Cinema, 90 NW 29th St, 305-571-9970

Bacon and Cheddar Arepas in Midtown

Meet the boliarepa: a mini arepa made with bacon and cheddar. It’s now being served—along with similar South American delicacies like tequeños and empanadas—at colorful new Venezuelan joint La Latina in Midtown. Fridays and Saturdays, they’re open until 5am, in case you need a middle-of-the-night snack. Call it a pre-breakfast.

Now open, La Latina, 3509 NE 2nd Ave, 305-571-9655

Friday
Ice-Skating on the Bay
MISSING RINK

Ice-Skating on the Bay

’Tis the season... for mid-80s temps. But just because you’re still in linen pants doesn’t mean you can’t conjure a winter state of mind with some ice skates. An outdoor rink (flanked by a bar) is open across the bay at the InterContinental in Downtown. Just another blustery winter in Miami.

Monday
Sakaya’s Ribs and Pork Buns Downtown
TAKE A BAO

Sakaya’s Ribs and Pork Buns Downtown

This is an all-points bulletin regarding your pork bun and kimchi egg roll consumption: it’s about to go up. Way up. The Sakaya Kitchen empire expands with a Downtown outpost today, making midday honey orange ribs a lot more office-friendly. Better bring back a few for the BBQ fiends in accounting.

Drinking Cocktails with Daniel Boulud
TIPPLE EFFECT

Drinking Cocktails with Daniel Boulud

Monday’s forecast: hobnobbing with French chef Daniel Boulud. On the agenda: trays of passed apps and a bartender mixing drinks from Daniel’s book Cocktails & Amuse-Bouches: For Her & For Him, which you’ll also take home as a party favor. Consider it an early Christmas gift.
