Things to do for April 26, 2012
Sake, Sunglasses and Horses on South Beach
Fifty shades of the weekend.
Start your horses—polo has arrived. To be more precise, beach polo has arrived. For four days, you’ll watch all the excitement of steeds chasing a ball on the sand behind the Setai. And with a VIP ticket, you’ll also get an open bar, grandstand seating... and tipsy socialites. Keep that pinkie high.
The Bass Museum of Art. Home to Baroque paintings, Egyptian sarcophagi. And now, an epic 500-person evening scavenger hunt. Ready yourself to decode art’s greatest mysteries while filling up on gratis vodka cocktails and bites from Yardbird and Tiramesu. If the Botticelli starts talking, put down the vodka cocktail.
Drinking Like It’s 1995
1995. Good year. Mel Gibson wasn’t crazy yet. Coolio was relevant still. The Dolphins actually had a quarterback. Also, China Grill first opened on SoBe. So to celebrate the... 17th anniversary, most of their wine, sake and champagne is being rolled back to its original ’95 prices. Suddenly, you’re feeling very nostalgic.
Bidding on Incognito Art
You like a good surprise. So think of Locust Project’s Spring Fling as an artsy version of Clue. You’ll bid on one-of-a-kind pieces by painters whose signatures have been concealed on the back of their canvases. No flipping allowed.
In Miami, you can’t survive without a quality pair of sunglasses and a few trusty swim trunks. Also, food, shelter and potable drinking water. But for now, let’s focus on the former. And the beachwear sale GuyandGirl is currently hosting. Swimsuits: 60% off. Shades: 20% off. Waterproof fanny packs: suspiciously back-ordered.
