Things to do for May 17, 2012
Eating Sliders, Smoking Cigars and Listening to Stewardesses Speak
Ask the weekend no questions, and it’ll tell you no lies.
Haven’s Turning One
Tonight, the Lincoln Road gastro-lounge celebrates a year of serving dinner by... not serving dinner. Instead, you’ll find a DJ, an open vodka bar and sample tastings from the chef’s upcoming new menu. We assume that’s in lieu of a goodie bag.
Your hips: they don’t lie. So this Friday, you’ll head over to PAX and drop some truth to the tune of Afro-Cuban funk music from Palo. In between dance sets, grab some stogies from Sosa and pork cigars from the Cubancube truck. Yes, they’ve already been smoked.
You love a woman in uniform. Also, a good lecture. So consider checking out a discussion from past Pan Am flight attendants at HistoryMiami this Saturday. They’ll chat about their career, how it’s evolved and the glamorous perks of a life spent in the sky. Unfortunately, no complimentary bags of peanuts.
Meet Your New Sunday Brunch Options
The scene: Delano, noon. The drink: Bloody Mary oyster shooters, multiple. The brunch: all-new. Yes, the midday offerings at Bianca have received a heavy overhaul. Naturally, you’ll want to stop by Sunday and welcome the recent additions (think sushi from Umi/waffles from Belgium). And by welcome, we mean eat.
A Slider Summit at Pincho Factory
The famous “rule of three.” Applies to celebrity deaths, baby births and, of course, cheeseburger slider exhibitions. For instance, take this Monday, when three elite patty purveyors (Pincho Factory, El Rey de la Fritas and Charm City Burger Company) are getting together to do what they do best. Make adorable burgers.
