Things to do for May 03, 2012

The Weekender

Roller Girls, Derby Drinks and Chicken-Fried Burgers

Curses, the weekend is foiled again.

Thursday
A Margarita Gauntlet at Talavera
SALTED AWAY

A Margarita Gauntlet at Talavera

Talavera’s challenging any notions you might have about the humble margarita with four new twists on the classic: Cilantro, Spicy Almond, Tamarindo and Spicy Coconut Mezcal. You’ll want to pair them with some beef tenderloin in poblano sauce from the special Cinco de Mayo menu. Tenderloin: the peanut butter to tequila’s jelly.

Saturday
Derbying the Day Away at Yardbird
TRIFECTA

Derbying the Day Away at Yardbird

It’s the most thrilling two minutes in sports. But still—two minutes. So head to Yardbird, where in addition to hanger steaks and fried pickles you’ll fill the rest of your afternoon with the prerequisite mint juleps and a “best Derby hat” contest. Yes, time to break out the stovepipe.

Just Some Roller Derby Girl Action
WHIP IT

Just Some Roller Derby Girl Action

Roller derby: making skates look tough since... always. And this Saturday, our Vice City Rollers are playing their first home game of the season at Suniland. Grab a beer as they take the rink against the Bradentucky Bombers. Oh no, not the Bradentucky Bombers.

May 5, 6:30-9pm, $10-$15, Suniland Roller Hockey Rink, 9300 SW 152nd St, Palmetto Bay, 305-707-4443, tickets here

Sunday
A Vodka-Laced Garden Stroll
PEEP SHOW

A Vodka-Laced Garden Stroll

If you’ve never cocktailed your way through the lush bayside gardens of the Kampong, we’re going to suggest making your debut at Sunday’s Garden to Glass party. Essentially, it’s a clandestine gathering involving vodka drinks crafted from the exotic fruits grown on the property. Garden to highball.

Monday
National Hamburger Week. Get on It.
HERE’S THE BEEF

National Hamburger Week. Get on It.

You always stay at the forefront of all burger developments. So you’ll want to stop by Edge and taste the latest in patty technology for National Hamburger Week. Expect things like chicken-fried Angus burgers and a mesquite beast topped with egg, bacon and ham. You’re gonna need a bigger bun.
