B-Movie Karate Night at LAB Miami

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
WINE NOT

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.

Sunday
Pétanque Scrimmages at Bella Beach
INNER CIRCLE

Pétanque Scrimmages at Bella Beach

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.

Sundays in August, noon, Bella Beach, 18001 Collins Ave, Sunny Isles Beach, 305-692-5777, RSVP here

Monday

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.
