Things to do for October 25, 2012
Riding Bikes, Eating ’Cue and Going to Space
Weekends don’t grow on trees.
Not that you need a reason to cut out of work early, but the beer-loving Craft Brewjas are taking over Yardbird for a Southern-style social this Friday. They’re making it worth your while with half off all drafts and gratis bar bites. Sure, twist your arm.
A Space-Age Party in South Beach
Disco: dead. Space disco: alive and well. Also, the theme of a party in South Beach this weekend. Think Star Trek costumes mixed with go-go dancers mixed with gratis tequila mixed with moon-themed photo backdrops mixed with a complete lack of gravity. Just kidding, there’s gravity.
A Whole Day Dedicated to Your Bike
The thing about the Tour de France is... it’s in France. So Sunday, the Gables is shutting down two major roads for you to pedal freely on. Also, there’ll be a street party with bands, roller derby, bike polo and karate demos. Which... makes sense.
Jazz Festing Like the French
The Biltmore is having a little fete. For France. And jazz. But hey, you’re invited, too. They’ll be celebrating the Miami Nice Jazz Festival with free-flowing champagne, French fromage, quiche and the vocal stylings of Brazilian-American chanteuse Mônica da Silva. Lady has a voice like velvet.
A Lone Star Throwdown at the Fed
Some things are worth fighting for. Barbecue: chief among them. So this Tuesday, you’ll bear witness to a five-course Texas battle royal between Haven’s Todd Erickson (representing Dallas) and the Fed’s Cesar Zapata (holding it down for Houston). Your job: eat some ribs. Drink beer. And vote. With your mouth.
