If you need to lay low for a while, we won’t ask why. Also, there’s a Perk for that: two nights at Impala—that hidden Spanish villa a few seconds from South Beach. Also, you’re getting 20% off Swiss-made portable speakers and 30% off Nova Scotia lobster—the same kind served on the tables of royalty.
Things to do for August 09, 2012
Cognac Sausage, Roundhouse Kicks and Pétanque
The weekend is filmed before a live studio audience.
Take some Samuel L. Jackson. Now, add a dash of Bruce Lee. The result: one badass, roundhouse-kicking, karate-chopping motherf**ker. Also, the lead character in Black Belt Jones, a ’70s B-movie martial arts flick screening at LAB tonight. Warning: may contain comical sound dubbing.
Stocking Up Your Kitchen. At a Museum.
Museums. Great place to experience some culture, learn about cubism or, this Saturday, buy cognac-infused sausage. See, the Coral Gables Museum is playing host to several local artisan vendors. They’re shilling things like jams and cheesecakes and spicy Mexican snickerdoodles. Also, that booze-imbued sausage. Grab a case.
Partying Like a Wine God in Wynwood
You like the Wynwood Art Walk. Solid night. Well, here’s a reason to like it even more: 31,000 square feet dedicated to wine-soaked, street-partying revelry. On Saturday, the Bacchanalia festival descends. And along with it: food trucks, an art auction and a whole slew of cocktails. Black toga optional.
There’s this huge pétanque tournament happening in Miami on September 2 (we assume you already had the date circled). And Bella Beach wants to help get you ready with weekly practice sessions on their sand court. Remember, stretch first. Or, you know, just swim some laps around their bar.
Michael Schwartz Makes Beer
So chef Michael Schwartz has a hobby. And normally, you couldn’t care less. But this hobby, it’s making beer. And this beer, it’s got brown rice and sugarcane, and it’s being poured in his restaurant, Michael’s Genuine, starting Monday. You should go and sample some. And by some, we mean a pitcher.
