Art in Action at News Lounge

Swing by this Biscayne Blvd lounge for a show featuring Miami's Krave, Claudio Picasso (aka, CP1) and live-painting powerhouse LEBO. Headlining the event will be the lovely Lady Miss Kier of Deee-Lite, reminding you that groove's location is, in fact, in the heart.

RUNWAY

Roberto Cavalli Fashion Show at Kitchen 305

No disrespect to contemporary art, but a night of models is a little easier on the eyes. The North Miami supper lounge brings you Cavalli's latest sartorial designs, plus his signature Cavalli Vodka cocktails. The man certainly knows how to branch out.

WEEKEND SPANAKOPITA

Anise Taverna Opens

The good folks from Ouzo's have packed up their South Beach digs and reopened in the former Renaisa space in the MiMo District. The waterfront spot still boasts seedy river views, but now thankfully there's plenty of tzatziki, fresh seafood and retsina to wash it all down.

Now open for dinner weekdays, lunch and dinner weekends, 620 NE. 78th St (at NE. 7th Ave), 305-758-2929

Thursday
Monsieur Gifting Lounge
SHOPPING

Monsieur Gifting Lounge

Your favorite grooming den has put together a nice roster of retailers for you and your spa pal. Expect guayaberas and cuff links from Marce, jewelry from Montica and classic shoes from Soulier Footwear. Cocktails via Bacardi, chair massages and snacks from Novecento ought to ease the credit-card relinquishing.
