Crawfish, Tang Mimosas and Steak-Eating Secretaries

Take two and call the weekend in the morning.

Thursday
Anniversary Feasting at Makoto
TURNING JAPANESE

Anniversary Feasting at Makoto

Yep, here comes another birthday. This time, it’s Makoto. And in honor of their first year, they’re summoning all of their favorite dishes since opening day. Your job: pony up $45 and feast on eight family-style courses. Think short rib robata and Frosty Kobe Fried Rice. Family: optional.

Through May 31, $45, Makoto, 9700 Collins Ave, Bal Harbour, 305-864-8600

Saturday
Training with an NFL Running Back
ROPED IN

Training with an NFL Running Back

Willis McGahee: national champion. Broncos starting running back. Also, low-impact-aerobics instructor. Yes, this Saturday, the NFL pro will be leading a session of Whipped at Equinox (think tug-of-war and interval training... with lots of spandex). It’s okay to “let” McGahee win.

Sunday
Cereal Brunching at Eating House
BOWL GAMES

Cereal Brunching at Eating House

After three months of late nights, your favorite Coral Gables pop-up is launching a Wakin-N-Bacon brunch, with $5 Tang mimosas, Cap’n Crunch Pancakes and a breakfast sausage made of maple bacon and pancakes. It’s amazing how far sausage technology has come.

Sundays, 1pm, Eating House, 804 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Coral Gables, 305-448-6524

A Great Big Louisiana Crawfish Boil
CRAWDADDY

A Great Big Louisiana Crawfish Boil

According to our inside source (okay, it’s Julie Durda), Sunday’s going to be beautiful. Related: the Stage is hosting a crawfish boil, where you’ll sip on Abita specials as Shamarr Allen and the Underdawgs perform. We’re pretty sure that’s a band. We hope that’s a band.

Apr 22, 2-8pm, no cost, The Stage, 170 NE 38th St, 305-576-9577

Wednesday
A Holiday Worthy of Steak Frites
ADMINISTRATIVE DUTIES

A Holiday Worthy of Steak Frites

This Wednesday, secretaries from around the city will congregate in the name of scheduling, filing and... steak frites. That’s because DB Bistro Moderne is celebrating Administrative Professionals Day with a $24 three-course lunch and gratis happy-hour cocktails. You should really go... you know, to show your appreciation.

Apr 25, lunch noon-2:30pm, happy hour 6-9pm, DB Bistro Moderne, 255 Biscayne Blvd Way, 305-421-8800
