The Weekender

Milkshakes, Tacos and Other Weekend Essentials

This is the first weekend of the rest of your year.

Thursday
A Wine Shop/Gallery Hybrid Downtown
VILLAGE VINES

A Wine Shop/Gallery Hybrid Downtown

A typical Downtown dilemma: you need a bottle of burgundy and some art. Okay, maybe not. But you’ll be pleased to know this new vino spot/art gallery—opened by the owner of Etra Fine Art—is around the next time you’re looking for a high-end French red and abstract canvases.

Icy Hot Chocolate on Lincoln
SUNDAE SCHOOL

Icy Hot Chocolate on Lincoln

The New York-ification of Lincoln Road continues with Serendipity 3, a milkshake and burger saloon based in Manhattan. Come here for post-movie sundaes garnished with deep-fried Oreos and red velvet cake, or for the restaurant’s trademark Frrrozen Hot Chocolate. It’s like winter in a cup.

Now open, Serendipity 3, 1102 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach, 305-403-2210

A Taco Truck Goes Stationary
LOOK WHO’S TACO-ING

A Taco Truck Goes Stationary

Food trucks: so last year. Brick-and-mortar restaurants: making a comeback. Hence the new stationary outpost of the MexZican Gourmet, the South Miami shack dispensing those Legacy tacos (brisket, chorizo and chicharrón) you’ve come to love.

Friday
Jeronimo’s Grand Opening Blowout
OPEN UP

Jeronimo’s Grand Opening Blowout

Jeronimo’s opened during the busy pre-holiday fray, so it’s understandable if you haven’t checked it out yet. Make it right this Friday by stopping by their official opening party, where three hours of gratis vodka, rum and gin cocktails await. But sadly, no eggnog.
