La Gloutonnerie Launches Lunch
FRENCH OPEN

La Gloutonnerie Launches Lunch

La Gloutonnerie. You haven’t tried their lunch yet. Of course, there’s a good reason. It just started existing. Consider swinging by tomorrow for some duck confit, New York strip and dill-scented shrimp with fennel crisps. You can always do a salad Monday.

Mon-Fri, noon-3pm, La Gloutonnerie, 81 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, 305-503-3811

Yacht Hopping All Weekend Long
SHORE THING

Yacht Hopping All Weekend Long

Not all yacht shows are created equal. Some throw in live jazz. Cocktail bars. Oh, and a couple McLarens and M55s for good measure. That’s basically what you’re getting at the Epic Hotel this weekend. Good luck figuring out how to get a catamaran up your condo stairs later.

Saturday
You’re Invited to a Giant Beer Party
HOP TILL YOU DROP

You’re Invited to a Giant Beer Party

Here’s a good reason to head out to the Grove: beer. Check that: 200 types of beer. Yes, there’s a massive beer party going down this Saturday at Peacock Park. You’ll find local bands doing the live-music thing, cooking exhibitions, brewing seminars and, of course, sample pours. Many, many sample pours.

Oct 13, 3-7pm, $39-$89, Peacock Park, 2820 McFarlane Rd, 305-461-2700, tickets here

Sunday
Throwing Down Some Bones at Jimmy’z
DOMINO EFFECT

Throwing Down Some Bones at Jimmy’z

Drop by Jimmy’z this Sunday and you’ll find, well, mofongo. But also, a heated, bracket-style domino tournament. To the winners: cash, new domino tables and cases of beer. Beer > participation ribbon.

Monday
Midtown Gets All Ramen on You
USE YOUR NOODLE

Midtown Gets All Ramen on You

Ah, fall. Sunny, comfortable, 85-degree fall. You’re probably freezing. Well, this might help. We’ve got a new ramen joint. The name: Machiya. The specialty: warm bowls of noodles topped with things like pork belly and short rib. Slurp. It’s polite.
