Flying Art in Wynwood

Today, we take you all the way back to... December 2011. To a magical thing called Art Miami. Well, it’s here again, sort of—the people behind it are bringing you Art Wynwood, with contemporary works from over 50 international galleries. Consider it spring training for Basel.

A Block Party with Food Trucks

Tonight, BrickellHouse is having a housewarming. Their gift to you: a block party with funk music (courtesy of DJ Le Spam), a food truck rally (GastroPod and Sugar Yummy Mama) and plenty of cocktails. So just like your last housewarming.

Feb 16, 6-9pm, no cost, BrickellHouse, 1300 Brickell Bay Dr, 305-938-5707

Late-Night Wine at AltaMare
DOUBLE VISION

Late-Night Wine at AltaMare

The folks at AltaMare want to make your late-night trysting a little sweeter with two-for-one on all of their libations—martinis, beer, champagne, even a $750 ’75 Château Lafite Rothschild bordeaux. Which really should only be enjoyed in pairs.

Saturday
Carousing in the Name of Science
BLAST OFF

Carousing in the Name of Science

So the Miami Science Museum’s Big Bang soiree is this Saturday. There, you’ll enjoy Cuba Libres and unleash your legendary running man to DJed beats. It’s black-tie optional, but maybe leave the periodic-table bow tie at home.

Wednesday
A Slice of Philly at Harry’s
ONE-NIGHT STAND

A Slice of Philly at Harry’s

Philly: home to cheesesteak, the Fresh Prince and a Michelin-starred restaurant called Vetri. And for one night, the chef will be taking over Harry’s Pizzeria, churning out Italian fare from his new cookbook like veal cannelloni and tiramisu. No, the Phillie Phanatic won’t be in attendance.
