Things to do for August 02, 2012

The Weekender

Eating Sports Cars, Racing Burgers and... No, Wait, That’s Backwards

The weekend’s about to lose control, and it thinks it likes it.

Thursday
50% Off Some Necessary Summer Linen
LINENS ’N THINGS

50% Off Some Necessary Summer Linen

So today, the humidity was up around 90%. Next week: the same. October: more of the same. Basically, we’re suggesting you move to a different state. Or, better solution, swing by 120% Lino for a half-off sale on some summer linen. And also, get a fan.

Through Aug 31, 120% Lino, 342 San Lorenzo Ave, 305-774-1212

Saturday
Gunning It Around the Speedway
DAYS OF THUNDER

Gunning It Around the Speedway

This Saturday, the Homestead Miami Speedway is open for joyriding. They’ll supply a bunch of sports cars to rent (think Ferrari Californias and Lamborghini Gallardos) and you’ll supply the reckless abandon. Wear something fire-retardant. Just in case.

So You Want Burgers and Beer...
MEAT AND GREET

So You Want Burgers and Beer...

Here’s a good reason to head to Brickell: beer. Also: burgers and meatballs. Yup, it’s the first ever Burger, Beer & Balls Bash (better late than never). On hand: an obscene amount of brew and burger/meatball samplings from over 30 local restaurants. McDonald’s: not included.

Aug 4, 4-10pm, $10-$100, The Historic Miami Circle, 401 Brickell Ave, 305-200-8892, tickets here

Tuesday
A Semipermanent Pop-Up at Vesper
ROOM FOR TWO

A Semipermanent Pop-Up at Vesper

The Dining Room’s outgrown their tiny digs in SoFi. So they’ve decided to pop up in the Vesper space at the Shelborne until... well, your guess is as good as ours. What you can count on: panko-crusted sweetbreads and braised pork. Also, way more elbow room.
