Things to do for July 26, 2012
A Whole Lot of Olympics and Some Cap’n Crunch Mousse
The weekend is calling shotgun.
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.
... 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.
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.
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.
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.
