This week, we’re handing you the keys to a Ferrari—and four other supercars—for a glorious day of racing. Plus, we’re airmailing you a bevy of holiday-appropriate meats from Robinson’s Prime Reserve for 25% off. And then helping you cook those meats to perfection with the ingenious iGrill. (We’ll explain.)
Things to do for December 15, 2011
$1 Oysters, Spanish Brunch and the Rusty Pelican
The weekend is your holiday bonus.
The Rusty Pelican: No Longer Rusty
The Pelican was always your go-to for Bloody Mary–drenched brunches on the open bay. And now, after a five-month renovation, the iconic spot is back, complete with a mod ’60s-style dining room and dishes like lobster crudo and Duck-Fat-Fried Australian Lamb Loin. It’s the turducken of lamb.
An Eight-Hour Happy Hour
Happy hour—by definition, a short-lived occasion. Except when it’s extended to a leisurely eight hours. Every day of the week. It’s happening at China Grill’s bar, where cocktails are two-for-one and apps like lobster pancakes and curried chicken satay go for less than $10.
$1 Oysters and Craft Beers Downtown
And if Brickell is more in your happy hour orbit, you’ll be pleased to hear that the new steakhouse at the Four Seasons is lavishing you with dollar oysters and steak skewers. Also: beers like Harpoon’s UFO White and Inlet’s Monk in the Trunk are half off. Enjoy responsibly.
A Seriously Porky New Brunch
Cap off the weekend by delving into a new culture. One where you get to drink sangria with breakfast. The gang at Pubbelly’s Spanish sibling, Barceloneta, is serving up eggs Benedict with pork belly and serrano ham with some seriously rich churros with chocolate. Wear your best matador pants.
