Things to do for July 19, 2012

The Weekender

First You Sumo, Then You Invent the World’s Best Burger

The weekend has danced with the devil in the pale moonlight.

Thursday
Friday
Cocktails. Interactive Sex Art. Go.
CANDY LAND

Cocktails. Interactive Sex Art. Go.

So there’s this cocktail/art party tomorrow where the theme is games. And sex. Sounds like a thing you should investigate. So head to Villa 221, where you’ll find nude coloring books, gratis vodka cocktails and almost certainly some form of Twister.

Jul 20, 9pm, no cost, Villa 221, 221 NE 17th St, 305-416-5280

Two Days of Soul at the Stage
SURELY YOU FEST

Two Days of Soul at the Stage

If you love trombone music, you’re in luck. The Stage is about to kick off a live, two-day funk music festival. If you’re indifferent to live trombone music, well, you’re still in luck. The Stage will also have live art from LEBO, bites from Harry’s Pizzeria and rum-laced Soul Shots. So, something for everyone.

Sunday
Sumo Wrestling at the National
A BOY NAMED SUMO

Sumo Wrestling at the National

There’s a pool party at the National on Sunday. There’s also inflatable-rubber-suit sumo wrestling at the National on Sunday. Come prepared to sake bomb, body slam and potentially set some sort of cannonball world record.

Jul 22, 3pm, National Hotel, 1677 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-532-2311

Building a Better Burger
ON THE BUN

Building a Better Burger

The perfectly constructed burger. You’ve longed to crack its elusive code. And eat it. Which brings us to the Palms. Starting this Sunday, they’ll be hosting a build-your-own-burger bar. You pick the patty, you pick the sides, you’ve got your dinner. Just remember to trademark it first.

Wednesday
Dinner with Daniel Boulud
LIVE AND LET DINE

Dinner with Daniel Boulud

Yes, we know Wednesday night is usually reserved for tacos, but we were thinking you could make an exception this one time. For Daniel Boulud. See, he’s hosting a charity dinner. And he’s enlisted the likes of the Yardbird, Katsuya and Bloom to help. All that’s missing now: your support. And a fork.
