The Globe Throws a Block Party

If you’re up for a 10-hour blowout on Friday (and we assume you are), head toward the Globe. The street out front will be closed down for a Cuba Libre block party featuring live music, mojitos, salsa lessons and a mobile cigar shop. Don’t forget your smoking guayabera.

May 11, 4pm-2am, no cost, The Globe, 377 Alhambra Cir, Coral Gables, 305-445-3555

MODEL BEHAVIOR

Navigating a Party Full of Models

You may have heard that it’s Latino Fashion Week. What this means for you: spontaneous walk-offs around South Beach (well, more so than usual). Venture over to the launch party at the Shore Club, where you’ll enjoy DJ-spun tunes and gratis tequila cocktails. Then, show ’em how Blue Steel is really done.

Save the World. Enjoy an Open Bar.
LOST IN PARADISE

Save the World. Enjoy an Open Bar.

So there’s this group called the Paradise Fund. A charitable lot. Love a good party. Naturally, they’re launching their philanthropic society in Miami with a soiree at the Shelborne. There’ll be the requisite hors d’oeuvres and free-flowing open bar. Yes, you can write off martinis.

Saturday
Pop-Up Shopping in the Design District
FACTORY-MADE

Pop-Up Shopping in the Design District

Shopping is okay. Shopping with drinks, indie flicks and tunes from the Scratch DJ Academy is decidedly... more okay. As part of a once-a-month fete, you can check out over 40 artists’ wares at the District Factory while films from O Cinema play in the background. Just remember to silence your phone.

Sunday
Bossa Nova Brunching with Mom
MOMMY DEAREST

Bossa Nova Brunching with Mom

Sunday is Mother’s Day. You knew that. But in case you... were undecided as to where to take Mom, consider the following. SushiSamba will be hosting a bossa nova brunch. There’ll be eggs Benedict with lobster and live music from Brazilian chanteuse Mônica da Silva. She’s kind of a big deal in the bossa nova world.

May 13, 11am-4pm, SushiSamba, 600 Lincoln Rd, Miami Beach, 305-673-5337
