The Weekender

There’ll Be Beer, Burlesque and Chris Bosh This Weekend

The weekend is in a glass case of emotion.

Thursday
Friday
An Irish Bar Full of Burlesque Dancers
PASTIE DECISION

An Irish Bar Full of Burlesque Dancers

Should you find yourself at the Lucky Clover tomorrow, you’ll notice an intriguing development: burlesque dancers. See, Priscilla Jade (they make lacy things) is launching their new line of lingerie with a burlesque runway show in the middle of the bar. Which makes... not a ton of sense, but you’ll suspend disbelief when tassels are involved.

Saturday
Color-Coded Dancing in an Art Gallery
RAY OF LIGHTS

Color-Coded Dancing in an Art Gallery

There’s art galleries, and there’s clubs. Not a whole lot in common. Until this Saturday. When LMNT throws a kaleidoscope dance party. Basically, every song played is choreographed to a different array of colors. Which sounds pretty cool... you know, unless you’re color blind.

Aug 25, 10pm-4am, LMNT, 59 NW 36th St, 954-465-5409

Sunday
Free Ice Cream from Chris Bosh
GOOD HUMOR

Free Ice Cream from Chris Bosh

Chris Bosh. When he’s not playing in the NBA and dunking on people, he’s... working at the Frieze. Yup, this Sunday, in honor of the ice cream shop’s 25th anniversary, Bosh will be jumping behind the counter to hand out gratis scoops. Remember to say thank you. For the world championship.

Aug 26, 3-6pm, no cost, The Frieze, 1626 Michigan Ave, Miami Beach, 305-538-0207

A Microbrew Cook-Off at Lou’s
CAN IT

A Microbrew Cook-Off at Lou’s

Microbrews. Normally, you’d drink them. And be happy. But Lou’s Beer Garden has other ideas. Eating-your-beer kind of ideas. So this Sunday, they’re having 11 local chefs compete in a cook-off. The catch: one of the ingredients must be a microbrew. Oh, and you’re going to judge. Be impartial.

Wednesday
Getting Your Just Desserts at Ricochet
SUGAR RUSH

Getting Your Just Desserts at Ricochet

We’ll keep this one simple: drop $10 for entry to Ricochet on Wednesday and you’ll get to sample 20 vendors’ worth of cupcakes, cookies and liquor-infused desserts (to go with your liquor-infused scotch). Stick around for the live music later in the evening. Or seconds.
