Things to do for November 20, 2008

The Weekender

Madonna, iPods and Steam

The weekend is recovering from last weekend.

Thursday
Georges Duboeuf Wine Party
BEUJOLAIS

Georges Duboeuf Wine Party

You and Beujolais need no introduction, as you two go way back. So be sure to welcome the 2008 vintage at this tasting and swilling at Nikki Marina, where you'll learn which dishes pair best with the fruit-centric wine. Think of it as speed-dating for your palate.

No cost, 7pm, Nov 20, Nikki Marina, 360 S. Ocean Dr (N. of Hallandale Beach Blvd), 954-602-8750

Friday
Balans Brickell Now Open
FOG

Balans Brickell Now Open

Late-night-brunch and crowd-pleasing-fusion spot Balans has opened an outpost for downtown office refugees in Mary Brickell Village. It's open until 4am on weekends—but the real draws are the glass bathroom stalls that go magically opaque when locked. Luckily, fogging up windows is something you have experience with.

Now open, Balans Brickell, 901 S. Miami Ave (between SW. 9th and 10th), 786-40-7972

Saturday
Gifts at Tommy Hilfiger
SHOPPING

Gifts at Tommy Hilfiger

To get you in the holiday spending mood, Tommy is giving away an iTouch to the first ten customers to spend $500. Plus, the first fifty customers to spend $300 get a Nano, and the first fifty to spend $150 get a Shuffle. Look at it as buying an iPod and getting a free rugby.

10am-9:30pm, Nov 22, Tommy Hilfiger in Aventura Mall, 19501 Biscayne Blvd (S. of Ives Dairy), 305-931-1631

Madonna's Directorial Debut
SCREENING

Madonna's Directorial Debut

Multi-talented Madge diversifies her portfolio with Filth and Wisdom, her first stint behind the camera. The plot centers on a Ukrainian immigrant who finances his dreams of rock glory by moonlighting as a dominatrix with his two female flatmates. Of course he does.

$10, 7:45pm and 9:30pm, Nov 22-24, Miami Beach Cinematheque, 512 Espanola Way (between Drexel and Pennsylvania), 305-673-4567

Sunday
The "GQ" at Lace Nail Lab
GROOMING

The "GQ" at Lace Nail Lab

Showing it has a masculinely coiffed side as well, the new Lace bureau in SoFi is taking the polybag off its GQ package, which involves a haircut, manicure, pedicure and borderline-pervy photo shoot with Terry Richardson. (Note: Last one is not true, thankfully.)

$85, Lace Nail Lab, 500 S. Pointe Dr (between Ocean and Washington), 305-532-0190
