Things to do for March 08, 2012

The Weekender

Ping-Pong, Rooftop Cocktails and Tons of Chili

The weekend will see you now.

Thursday
More Oysters and Bubbly at La Cote
LATE BITE

More Oysters and Bubbly at La Cote

You already know about La Cote’s lunchtime beachfront views at the Fontainebleau. What you might not have known: they’ve extended it to dinner, every Thursday through Saturday. Moonlight. Mollusks. Good things usually ensue...

Ceviche Three Ways at the Mondrian
RAW DEAL

Ceviche Three Ways at the Mondrian

Asia de Cuba’s recently introduced a new ceviche raw bar, and they’re breaking out the tiger’s milk in celebration. So for 20 bucks, you’ll get three varieties of ceviche along with your choice of a mango, berry or classic mojito. Good ceviche usually comes in threes.

Friday
Rooftop Cocktailing at the Mayfair
FAIR WEATHER

Rooftop Cocktailing at the Mayfair

Great. Another rooftop happy hour. No, seriously: great. See, the Mayfair’s launching their first Friday rooftop happy hour of the season. So you can stop by after work, unwind on a sofa bed and sip on sangria mojitos long after the sun has set. Or until their chorizo-stuffed dates run out.

Saturday
And Now, James Bond Playing Ping-Pong
SERVED UP

And Now, James Bond Playing Ping-Pong

Sean Connery. Now there’s a guy you’ve always thought could serve up some serious backspin. And Chalk has the proof. They’re hosting an exhibit of photos with celebs like Bogart, Marilyn Monroe and the Beatles playing table tennis. Oh, and there’s gratis vodka cocktails, too—which’ll work wonders for your drop shot.

Mar 10, cocktails 10-11pm, no cost, Chalk, 1234 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, 305-532-8662

Sunday
Chili and Hot Rods, Together at Last
GAS IT

Chili and Hot Rods, Together at Last

You’ve got big plans this Sunday. Like judging-innumerable-bowls-of-beef-beans-and-peppers kinds of plans. So you’ll head to the Barnacle for their chili cook-off, where you can taste, vote... and scope out classic cars. Just don’t get any beans on the upholstery.
