Things to do for May 31, 2012

The Weekender

A Pool, a Chipwich and a Man Playing the Flute

The weekend is paved with good intentions.

Thursday
A Master Class in Miami Bass
SHAKE DOWN

A Master Class in Miami Bass

With all due respect to Jefferson Starship, this city was built on some good old-fashioned bass. So join music historian Dave Tompkins as he discusses the impact of bass on Miami’s culture, politics and... posterior chains. Afterward, enjoy vodka cocktails as he spins some classics. Then, shake what your mama gave ya.

Friday
Stocking Up at the Webster
TAKE IT OFF

Stocking Up at the Webster

Jackets. Trousers. Head-to-toe denim. Not exactly things you’re in the market for right now. However, the Webster is hosting a sale with up to 40% off Rag & Bone, Givenchy and Tom Ford right now, so perhaps purchase a few as an investment. Or purchase a few and move to Minnesota.

Ongoing, The Webster, 1220 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-674-7899

An Awesome Flute Concert. Really.
SOUND CHECK

An Awesome Flute Concert. Really.

The Sounds of the Walls concert series from Néstor Torres (yes, Gloria Estefan’s flute guy) kicks off at the Wynwood Walls this Friday. On the stage: Big Brooklyn Red and Monica da Silva. On your plate: chicken empanadas from Wynwood Kitchen & Bar. In your glass: Brooklyn Local 2. Hoist your lighter high.

Sunday
The Best Kind of Art Gallery
CANVASING

The Best Kind of Art Gallery

The best kind of art gallery: the kind with ping-pong tables... and chipwiches. So, enter the launch event for the new studio collection called Yo Space. There’ll be table tennis. There’ll be hookah smoking. There’ll be a bunch of Coolhaus ice cream passed around. Oh, and art, too.

Jun 3, 4-8pm, no cost, Yo Space, 294 NE 62nd St

A Pool Party with Rony Seikaly
SWIM MEET

A Pool Party with Rony Seikaly

What’s 12 hours long, has a ton of bourbon and features music from former Miami Heat center turned DJ Rony Seikaly? Answer: the new all-day poolside soiree at the Delano. We also would have accepted: your plans this Sunday.

Sundays, noon-midnight, Delano Beach Club, 1685 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-924-4071
