Things to do for January 26, 2012

The Weekender

Dragons, De Niro and Biking for Beer

This weekend is taking D-Wade’s McLaren for a spin.

Thursday
Something Swiss for Your Wrist
PERFECT TIMING

Something Swiss for Your Wrist

So, Valentine’s Day. You need gift ideas. A thought: stopping by Breguet’s new Bal Harbour digs to pick up the kind of handsome timepiece that’s been spotted on the wrist of Robert De Niro. We suppose you could get something for your date, too.

Now open, Breguet, 9700 Collins Ave, Bal Harbour, 305-866-1061

Biking for Beer
SWITCHING GEARS

Biking for Beer

Riding bikes. Good for the environment, trimming the waistline and now, getting in on some Holy Mackerel action. Wood Tavern is doling out the positive reinforcement with half off all drinks when you pull up on your two-wheeler. Great excuse to break out the spandex.

Jan 26, 5-8pm, Wood Tavern, 2531 NW 2nd Ave, 305-748-2828

A Garden Party on the Beach
LUSH

A Garden Party on the Beach

The coming cold snap (i.e., 75 degrees) may find you in the mood for cocktails, barbecue and basking in a botanical garden. In which case, head here for vodka concoctions paired with exotic meats from your friends at Hogzilla’s. Careful not to get fried gator on your shirt.

Saturday
Dancing with Dragons on Brickell
NEW YEAR’S DEUX

Dancing with Dragons on Brickell

It’s time to celebrate New Year’s... again. The Mandarin Oriental’s throwing a Year of the Dragon party on their private beach in honor of the changing of the Chinese calendar. There’ll be an open bar, mu shu shrimp and the traditional dragon dance. Make sure your pocket square is flame-retardant.

A Huge Irish Block Party
PARTY BLOCKIN’

A Huge Irish Block Party

You love a good Irish block party. The people. The jigging. Good lord, the jigging. Anyway, this Saturday you’ll want to hit up the Lucky Clover’s Grand Opening Block Party. Free cocktails will flow as Spam Allstars play their Latin fusion funk. Perfect material for a proper running man.
