The weekend is there for you.

Fruity Beer Tasting at Bin No. 18
THURSDAY TASTING

Fruity Beer Tasting at Bin No. 18

Proving once again that beer is the most versatile beverage, the downtown drinkery plies you with complimentary tastes of Rogue Hazelnut Brown Nectar, St. Ambroise Apricot Wheat Ale and Unibroue Apple Ephemere. Let's see pineapple juice do all that.

411: 6:30-8:30pm, Sept 25, Bin No. 18, 1800 Biscayne Blvd (at 18th), 786-235-7575

Thursday
Sweat Records Benefit Concert
THURSDAY SWEAT

Sweat Records Benefit Concert

Indie record store and all-around town fave Sweat Records was recently burglarized, wiping out most of their equipment. Help right the ship by rocking out tonight to a dozen bands, including Down Home Southernaires. It's like Miami's version of Live Aid.

411: $7 donation, 9pm, Sept 25, Churchill's Pub, 5501 NE. 2nd Ave (at 55th), 305-757-1807

WEEKEND FEASTING

End of Miami Spice

Miami Restaurant Month (actually two months) ends early next week, so it's your last chance to take advantage of three-course $36 meals at succulent-prone restaurants like Bourbon Steak, Blue Door and SushiSamba. Consider it the economy's gift to you.

411: Ends Sept 30, various locations around town

Friday
Perry Ellis After-Party
FRIDAY ROMP

Perry Ellis After-Party

Brit-themed South Beach club Heathrow hosts the official after-party for Ocean Drive's Perry Ellis show. Attend and you'll be mingling with fashionistas, scenesters and hotties in a notoriously debaucherous setting. The possibilities, in other words, are endless.

411: 11pm-5am, Sept 26, Heathrow Lounge, 681 Washington Ave (between 6th and 7th), 305-534-7614

Saturday
Poplife Presents the Glimmers
SATURDAY GLIMMER

Poplife Presents the Glimmers

This week's Poplife party goes international with a set from Belgian DJ duo the Glimmers, hosts of Belgium's longest-running party. If you arrive early enough, you'll get a free copy of their latest album so you can continue the Euro revelry at home.

411: $10, 10pm, Sept 27, White Room, 1306 N. Miami Ave (between 13th and 14th), 305-995-5060
