Things to do for February 09, 2012

The Weekender

Cigars, DJs and Oscar Winners

This weekend respects the power of oysters.

Thursday
Lighting Up at the Biltmore
BLOWING SMOKE

Lighting Up at the Biltmore

Cigars and the end of the week go well together. Especially when we’re talking hand-rolled stogies smoked alfresco alongside the Biltmore’s legendary pool. Also: a few rum cocktails to sweeten the deal. They always do.

Thursdays in February, 6-9pm, no cost, Biltmore Hotel, 1200 Anastasia Ave, Coral Gables, 305-445-1926

A Huge Party at the Wolfsonian
SPIN ART

A Huge Party at the Wolfsonian

Tonight, your cocktailing, dancing and general post-week carousing will truly be museum-worthy. At this soiree you’ll find French grub, curators DJing and still more rum cocktails. Next week: bottle service at the opera.

Saturday
Maybe the Easiest Date Ever
LOVE, ACTUALLY

Maybe the Easiest Date Ever

Wine and a movie. A foolproof date-night plan. Particularly at Wine by the Bay, where they’re screening four short films on all things amorous (including last year’s Oscar winner, God of Love) and throwing in rosé and chocolate-dipped strawberries. The yawn-arm-around-the-shoulder move: classic third-flick material.

Anniversary Partying at Cafeina
SEEING RED

Anniversary Partying at Cafeina

Cafeina’s turning two this weekend (they grow up so fast). Naturally, they’re throwing a party replete with pork tenderloin medallions and live DJs. Stay for the unveiling of their Rouge Garden, a Japanese-blueberry-tree-and-river-rock-laden sanctuary for late-night reflection. You do your best reflecting among DJs.

Sunday
$1 Oysters and Pork Belly at SushiSamba
TURNING JAPANESE

$1 Oysters and Pork Belly at SushiSamba

It’s T minus five days until the 14th. Luckily, SushiSamba is hosting a monthlong, Japanese-accented happy hour with $1 oysters, $6 pork belly buns and $6 sake. You should really be increasing your oyster intake right about now.

Sun-Thu, 4-7pm, SushiSamba, 600 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach, 305-673-5337
