This week, we’re sending you on the ultimate three-day truffle bender—replete with a dog-guided hunt and insane levels of truffle consumption—at the finest resort in Tennessee. Plus, we’re hooking you up with custom iPhone cases (designed by you) and delivering mind-blowing coffee to your doorstep every two weeks.
Things to do for January 12, 2012
Cocktails and a Fancy Pork Feast
The weekend could get used to this 70-degree winter thing.
Swine, Wining and Cruising at SoBe Fest
There are still spots left for a few events at SBWFF next month. Our recs: Friday’s Party Impossible at the 1111 building, the salsa brunch cruise on Sunday and Debi Mazar’s Swine and Wine pig roast at the Biltmore. Which really trumps her work on Entourage.
Eating Latkes and Ribs on Biscayne
It’s Friday. 8pm. Your stomach starts grumbling for some comfort food—Chanukah Latkes with applesauce, baby back ribs and bacon-flecked potato salad. Good thing this place—a mod diner outfitted in vintage lunch boxes—is opening in the old American Noodle Bar spot. You hate to disappoint your belly.
A Nose-to-Tail Dinner at Edge
And if you’re really in the mood to pork it up, there’s this five-course pig fest paired with wines at the Four Seasons’ new steakhouse. Go from bread with whipped lard to Stuffed Trotter and Whole Head Tortellini. So much better than half-head tortellini.
You may find yourself perusing some galleries this weekend on Art Night. If so, be sure to stop by the Stage, where local artist and live-painting powerhouse Lebo will be brushing canvases and showing video art. Also, there will be PBRs, in case you get thirsty.
Face Time with a Cocktail Legend
Strong drinks in martini glasses—you’re interested. So you’ll be pleased to know that Dale DeGroff, a man who helped bring back old-school mixology, will be holding court and chronicling the history of cocktails. And yes, you’ll get to sample the goods as well.
