Things to do for February 23, 2012
Burgers. The Oscars. Paris. This Is Your Weekend...
It’s an honor just to be the weekend...
The Last of the Kobe Sliders at Duffy’s
The South Beach Wine & Food Festival: sold out. You: wisely avoiding the mobs at the beach. Duffy’s: slinging their Kobe South Beach Sliders—a gruyère-and-pancetta-laden number currently in competition at the fest’s Burger Bash—at their restaurants until the 29th, before retiring it forever. Your course of action: clear...
In Just a Few Hours, You Champagne
Here’s how tonight’s going down: four courses of bubbly at Villa Mayfair. We’re talking crusted rack of lamb with Lanson Extra Age rosé. Rougié foie gras and champagne jelly paired with brut. You might want to practice extending your pinky now.
Baryshnikov Wants You Here
Mikhail Baryshnikov: ballet dancer. Academy Award nominee. And... a bit of a voyeur. Sort of. Anyway, the man has a way with a lens. And tonight, you can scope out his first solo photography show, Dance This Way, featuring dancers doing what they do best. So maybe a teeny bit of a voyeur.
Your Oscar Party Is Right Here
Sadly, your walk-on role in Real Steel failed to be recognized by the Academy. Lick your wounds by watching the ceremonies on an oceanside veranda with libations like the Tree of Life (only slightly less confounding than the film itself). You don’t need a tuxedo, but it never hurts.
Your next dinner-and-a-movie date will go like this. First, a documentary on the vixens from the legendary Parisian cabaret Le Crazy Horse. Next, a live performance by local vaudeville troupe Shameless Burlesque. And finally, Italian fare from chef Michael Schwartz. Pasta should always follow pasties.
