The weekend has turned off the weather channel and is headed to the beach.

Friday
Elastic Bond and Friends
FRIDAY BONDING

Elastic Bond and Friends

Miami musical ensemble Elastic Bond brings their funky mix of horns, percussion and downbeat electronica to Wynwood hipster haven Circa 28. Adding to the bohemian mayhem—live painting by artist Eva Ruiz. Because you like your art fresh.

SATURDAY DINING

Segafredo Brickell Expands

The nightlife gods have smiled upon Segafredo Brickell—the place is always packed with after-office tipplers. Now they've expanded their dining room and menu to accommodate the hordes. Stop by for new dishes like gnocchetti Sardi, ravioli D'Argosta and fresh branzino.

Saturday
Aquabooty Summer Session
SATURDAY POOLING

Aquabooty Summer Session

DJ wranglers Aquabooty take over the Deco-lovely pool at the Raleigh hotel for a daytime party presided over by Yoruba DJ Osunlade. Afterwards, the Dionysian revelry continues with a second party in the Raleigh penthouse. We recommend a swimsuit and an open mind.

SATURDAY READING

Brad Meltzer at Books and Books

Jazz Brunch at 1 Bleu

The ritzy 1 Bleu at the Regent Bal Harbour launches a weekly jazz brunch this weekend. In addition to the velvety vocal stylings of Nicole Henry, you'll riff on unlimited mimosas and bloody Marys, strawberry waffles and an ample raw bar. Consider the dessert buffet your encore.

411: $67, 11am-3pm, Sept 7, Regent Bal Harbour, 10295 Collins Ave (at the Haulover inlet), 305-455-5460
