The Weekender

Sake, Sunglasses and Horses on South Beach

Fifty shades of the weekend.

Thursday
A Polo Match in the Sand
HORSE PLAY

A Polo Match in the Sand

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.

A Night at the Bass Museum
SEARCH PARTY

A Night at the Bass Museum

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.

Friday
Drinking Like It’s 1995
ROLL BACK

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.

Through Apr 28, China Grill, 404 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, 305-534-2211

Saturday
Bidding on Incognito Art
GUESS WHO

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.

Tuesday
Stockpiling Swim Trunks for 60% Off
SWIMSUIT ISSUE

Stockpiling Swim Trunks for 60% Off

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.
