Things to do for March 01, 2012

The Weekender

Dalí, Tweed and a Jazz Party at the Dupont

The weekend is a daydream believer.

Thursday
50% Off Spring Gear at Item
SALE-ING

50% Off Spring Gear at Item

Just when you were about to abandon your lifelong quest for the perfect striped pullover, in comes news of Item’s spring cleaning sale. Also up for purchase: sweaters, pants, polos, coats... Let’s just say if you can wear it, it’ll be here.

Friday
Jazz-Era Antics at the Dupont
FILM NOIR

Jazz-Era Antics at the Dupont

Imagine: a 22,000-square-foot Jazz Age club with all the dancers, musicians and tequila you can handle. That, in short, is the Miami International Film Festival’s kickoff. You’ll sip on some tequila and wine, then cushion the blow with bites from AltaMare and Tuyo. It’s the anti-Prohibition.

Saturday
Riding a Bike, Wearing Tweed
JACKET REQUIRED

Riding a Bike, Wearing Tweed

Finally, a use for your tweed biking shorts: the third annual Tweed Ride. Nine miles of biking and old-timey clothes, followed by lunch at the Village Chalet and best bike and mustache competitions. Good time to start oiling your handlebars.

Wednesday
Five Days of Dalí at the Moore
SURREAL LIFE

Five Days of Dalí at the Moore

This Wednesday, the Moore Building opens its doors to Dalí Miami for five days. It’s plenty of time to take a date and get a closer look at some of his surreal classics, like the melted clock, the maternal egg and the Freudian drawers—dates love a pencil mustache.

An Indian Affair at the Mandarin
CURRIED AWAY

An Indian Affair at the Mandarin

Substitute teachers: never a bad thing. And for five nights, Café Sambal gets its own sub by way of Michelin-starred NYC Indian restaurant Devi. The chef will be dishing up fare from his new cookbook, Masala Farm. We hear it’s much spicier than Animal Farm.
