Things to do for October 30, 2008

The Weekender

Sport-Fishing, Sushi and Absinthe

The weekend looks good in wool sweaters.

Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show
WEEKEND BOATING

Ft. Lauderdale International Boat Show

Satiate your nautical appetite with this mega boat show featuring rows upon rows of custom-made yachts, speedboats and high-tech fishing vessels. We hear the Bertram folks are offering tours of their new Bertram 540, a sport-fishing boat with an expanded bar. Because the open seas make you quite thirsty.

$18, 10am-7pm, Oct 30-Nov 3, Ft. Lauderdale Convention Center, 1950 Eisenhower Blvd (at SE. 17th St), 954-765-5900

Rice Asian House and Sushi Bar Opens
WEEKEND BENTO

Rice Asian House and Sushi Bar Opens

Brave the Russian expats in Sunny Isles and head to this new Japanese-Thai outlet that admirably attempts to class up its strippy locale with spare décor, fiery coconut curries and inventive rolls like the G.K. made with tuna, Tabasco, lettuce and masago. Because spicy mayo just doesn't cut it anymore.

Friday
Haunted Featuring Chromeo at Heathrow
TRIPPING

Haunted Featuring Chromeo at Heathrow

The blokes at your favorite Brit-club are out to recreate the absinthe trip from Mouline Rouge, complete with random midgets and scantily clad dancers. World-famous DJ duo Chromeo will also be there to provide aural pleasure. If you're into that sort of thing.

$20-$25, 10pm, Oct 31, Heathrow Lounge, 681 Washington Ave (between 6th and 7th), 305-534-7583, tickets here

Spooky Kabooki at SushiSamba
COSTUMING

Spooky Kabooki at SushiSamba

The Lincoln Road hotspot will be ground zero for all the dressed-up Sarah Palins and Don Drapers of the night (and hopefully a few French maids and naughty librarians). Alleviate your costume ennui with a KaBOOki Juice made from pomegranate vodka, orange puree and mango.

11pm, Oct 31, SushiSamba Dromo, 600 Lincoln Rd (at Pennsylvania), 305-673-5337

AltaMar Pairings and Pours
WINING

AltaMar Pairings and Pours

The humble Italian seafood emporium wines and dines you on Monday nights with four courses of belly-filling fare like grouper ceviche, veal osso buco and mango panna cotta paired with wines from small vineyards. A sure cure for a case of the Novembers.

$50, 8pm, Nov 3, 10, 17, AltaMar, 1223 Lincoln Rd (between Alton and West), 305-532-3061

Wednesday
Let It Snow Fashion Show
SNOWSTORM

Let It Snow Fashion Show

Head to outdoor adventure store Napapijri to peruse ski-wear from Spyder and sip complimentary Select Vodka cocktails as you fortify for the snowstorm that will surely ensue...thanks to the snow machine on hand.

8:30pm, Nov 5, Napapijri, 1008 Lincoln Rd (between Michigan and Lenox), 305-695-7301
