Things to do for October 19, 2012

The Weekender

A Haunted House, a Birthday Party and 12 Hours of Beer

Like a good neighbor, the weekend is there.

Friday
12 Hours of Tapped Beer
BACK DRAFT

12 Hours of Tapped Beer

Twelve. That’s how many hours you’ll have on Friday night to drink pints of draft beer in celebration of the DRB’s three-year anniversary party. Twenty bucks gets you unlimited access to their rotating taps and a midnight champagne toast. Remember, it’s a marathon, not a sprint.

Sunday
Ditch Your Phone. Get a Cupcake.
CELL OUT

Ditch Your Phone. Get a Cupcake.

So Michy’s has a new Sunday night dinner series. Also, a new rule to go along with it. No electronic devices (yes, that includes your iPhone) allowed at the table. Make it through the meal sans phone and you get a gratis red velvet cupcake. Instagram it from the safety of your car.

Sundays, 6:30-10pm, $38, Michy’s, 6927 Biscayne Blvd, 305-759-2001

Tuesday
Pubbelly Turns Two. You Get Pork.
GET IN MY BELLY

Pubbelly Turns Two. You Get Pork.

Pubbelly, your favorite pig-friendly gastropub in South Beach, is turning deux. So they’re putting out a five-course meal for the next five weeks made up entirely of house favorites. Expect dates with chorizo, pork belly in butterscotch miso and short rib with black truffles. It’s not a party without black truffles.

Oct 23-Nov 23, $35, Pubbelly, 1418 20th St, 305-532-7555

Wednesday
Halloween Street Partying on Ponce
BOO BOOS

Halloween Street Partying on Ponce

Coming soon: Halloween. Which means you need to start practicing. Now. So head to this pre-Halloween street party in the Gables with cocktails, haunted houses (yes, plural), a costume contest and vintage-horror-movie screenings on the lawn. Pass the popcorn. Or the fun-size Snickers.

Feasting on Pig and Wok-Fried Rice
ROLL WITH IT

Feasting on Pig and Wok-Fried Rice

If you’ve ever wished that spring rolls had more chicharrón (yes, many times), well, good. Because tickets are on sale for Luckyrice—an Asian-meets-Latin culinary festival that’s stopping in Miami at the end of next month. Attending/cooking/cocktailing: Douglas Rodriguez, Todd English and the Broken Shaker boys. It’s a real murderers’ row.
