The Weekender

Art, Wine and Murder

The weekend is excited for what happens next.

Friday
Happy Hour at Marinheiro
FRIDAY BOSSA NOVA

Happy Hour at Marinheiro

There's probably no better way to say goodbye to the workweek than by heading to the bayfront restaurant's Moleca Cachaca happy hour, where drink specials reign and ladies sip complimentary caipirinhas until 11pm. The after-party depends on you.

Saturday
Brosia Launches Saturday Brunch
SATURDAY BRUNCHING

Brosia Launches Saturday Brunch

Now that the humidity has lifted, Saturday mornings are all about sitting under the oak trees in Brosia's courtyard, sipping sangria and banishing hangovers with apple French toast with vanilla cognac sauce. During which you'll muse about your "wacky" friends who choose to live in snowy climates.

411: 11am-3pm, Saturdays, Brosia, 163 NE. 39th St (between NE. 2nd and NE. 1st), 305-572-1400

Saturday
"American Dream" by Laurent Elie Badessi
SATURDAY GALLERIZING

"American Dream" by Laurent Elie Badessi

Polish up on your Art Basel act at this Wynwood gallery reception composed of photographic portraits of soldiers wearing blindfolds. Powerful stuff, no doubt, so it's a good thing there'll be cocktails available to get the pontificating going.

Christy's Extends 30th Anniversary Menu
WEEKEND STEAK

Christy's Extends 30th Anniversary Menu

Leave it to Christy's to make turning 30 seem downright classy. From now until Thanksgiving the cushy Coral Gables steakhouse celebrates by giving you a three-course menu for $30 with dishes like filet mignon, lobster bisque and baked Alaska. In exchange you won't ask them about their plans to settle down.

411: Monday-Friday until Nov 27, Christy's Restaurant, 3101 Ponce de Leon Blvd (at University), 305-446-1400

Sunday
Brian Antoni Dies at Black Sunday
SUNDAY SLASHER

Brian Antoni Dies at Black Sunday

It's not often you get to watch a local scribe kick it in the bathroom of a nightclub. (Well, this week, anyway.) It all goes down at Bella Rose's infamous Sunday night party, where South Beach: The Novel author Brian Antoni hosts and eventually succumbs to the weekly party's slasher video ritual.

411: 10pm, Nov 10, Bella Rose, 423 16th St (between Drexel and Washington), 305-673-8634

Monday
Half-Off Wine List at La Goulue
MONDAY WINING

Half-Off Wine List at La Goulue

Bal Harbour's outpost of the celeb-loving Manhattan restaurant woos you with 50 percent off the entire wine list to pair with their classic French brasserie fare like cheese souffle, steak tartare and chicken paillard. Think of it as happy hour, super-fancied.

411: Monday nights, La Goulue, 9700 Collins Ave (in the Bal Harbour Shops), 305-865-2181
