Things to do for February 02, 2012

The Weekender

Ping-Pong, Bikinis and Donuts

This weekend is putting the final touches on its end-zone dance.

Thursday
Sweetness Rolls Out New Dough
SUGAR DADDY

Sweetness Rolls Out New Dough

Maple bacon donuts. Three words that have never failed you. And now that Sweetness is doing donuts, you’ll be upgrading your usual glazed pastry with flavors like strawberry jam, café con leche and Lucky Charms. Morning meetings in the boardroom: now magically delicious.

Friday
Cocktails. Art. Ping-Pong. Go...
BASS HIT

Cocktails. Art. Ping-Pong. Go...

You’ll play ping-pong anywhere. Even at a museum. So you’ll want to check out the relaunch of the Bass’s monthly party where folks from Chalk will be setting up table tennis in the courtyard (in addition to the usual gratis cocktails and live DJ). Your drop shot: the real art on display.

Saturday
Pool-Partying at the Perry
SKIN DEEP

Pool-Partying at the Perry

Ah, pool-party season. The mojitos, the tanning, the requisite games of Marco Polo with Scandinavian IT consultants. The RX Pool Party at the Perry’s Rooftop starts Saturday with DJ George Acosta spinning until 8pm. Or, you know, until you find all the Norwegians.

Art Made by Wild Animals
ANIMAL PRINT

Art Made by Wild Animals

Your home—probably lacking in abstract nudes painted by rhinos. (We said probably.) To remedy the situation, head to the Bakehouse Art Complex for Savage, a fund-raiser for Zoo Miami where you can stock up on art made by giraffes, elephants and the like. Curate with the eye of the tiger.

Wednesday
Saying Ciao to Mai Tardi
CLOSING TIME

Saying Ciao to Mai Tardi

So Mai Tardi is closing. And they’re saying goodbye the only way they know how: with a farewell party at their Design District digs, replete with copious amounts of prosecco and gratis bites of pizza and salumi. Cured meats: always comforting.

Feb 8, 7pm, gratis prosecco till 9pm, Mai Tardi, 163 NE 39th St, 305-572-1400
