FRIDAY WINING

Riedel Wine Tasting at Morton's

Settle once and for all the question of how a wine glass affects taste when you quaff reds and whites using Riedel's new "Flow" series wine glasses. Complimentary petite filet mignon sandwiches ought to keep you fueled for discussion, and parting glassware lets you Flow at home.

SATURDAY SHOPPING

Metropark Opens

The LA-based streetwear emporium sets up shop in the Aventura mall. Overlook the Stussy tees and head to the denim stacks, where you'll find labels like Rock & Republic, MEK and Monarchy Collection. This way your dignity and wardrobe remain intact.

Earthdance at Soho Studios

Pile a posse into the Prius and head to Soho Studios for an eco-bacchanalia with live music from bands like Kingley and Locos Por Juana, dozens of DJs including Ray Milian and Mike Deuce and a plethora of art installations. Consider it green's clubbier side.

SATURDAY GALLERIZING

Art and Design Night

The galleries of Wynwood and the Design District wake from their summer hibernation with new shows and plenty of free booze. Federico Nessi's solo act at Spinello should attract the right mix of hipsters and art chicks. Oh, and we hear the art's pretty good too.

SUNDAY DINNER

Pacific Time Opens for Dinner

Jonathan Eismann's new Design District spot opens for Sunday dinners, which means you get to bid farewell to the weekend over dishes like grouper in red curry, Peking duck salad and tempura soft shell crab. It's like the Cadillac of hangover cures.

411: 5-10:30pm, Sundays, Pacific Time, 35 NE. 40th St (between N. Miami Ave and NE. 1st Ave), 305-722-7369
