The Weekender

A Whole Lot of Olympics and Some Cap’n Crunch Mousse

The weekend is calling shotgun.

OPENING DAY

Where to Watch the Opening Ceremony

Common misconception: sports bars are the ideal spot to watch sports. Reality: pool bars are. So tomorrow you’ll sit by the Mondrian’s bayfront pool, drink a couple of jalapeño margaritas and watch the opening ceremony being broadcast via projector. Then, perform your synchronized swimming routine.

LONDON CALLING

... And Where to Watch It with Gin

You couldn’t make it to London for the Games. (Hey, you need more than a 48-month heads-up.) But you can still root for Team USA at Lantao. They’re showing all the events. Also, they’ll be serving special UK fare (think Scotch eggs and Pimm’s Cup pitchers). Javelin just got real interesting.

Daily starting Jul 27, Lantao Sandbar, 1717 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-604-1800

Sunday
Pool Partying on the Mainland
DIVE IN

Pool Partying on the Mainland

The rain. It’s finally gone. Okay, there’s a 30% chance that’s not accurate. But to that end, you’ll want to head to the Mayfair’s rooftop pool party on Sunday, featuring a DJ, champagne and masseuses delivering gratis chair massages. Yes, you’ll have to get out of the pool for those.

Tuesday
Eating House Says Goodbye
HOME SWEET HOME

Eating House Says Goodbye

You saw it coming. (Actually, Siri reminded you it was on your calendar.) But yes, Eating House closes its doors on Tuesday. Swing by and bid them farewell with plates of mac and cheese and bowls of Cap’n Crunch mousse. It’s part of a well-balanced breakfast.

Jul 31, 7pm-midnight, Eating House, 804 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Coral Gables, 305-448-6524

Wednesday
Conquering Miami Spice
SPICE TRADE

Conquering Miami Spice

This Wednesday marks the return of Miami Spice. You know the drill: three-course lunch and dinner specials all throughout the city. Your play: Bourbon Steak for Wagyu rib eye and Bianca for some summer-truffle-covered pasta. But sadly, no bottomless salad and breadsticks.

Aug 1-Sep 30, Miami Spice, various locations throughout the city
