Things to do for October 25, 2012

The Weekender

Riding Bikes, Eating ’Cue and Going to Space

Weekends don’t grow on trees.

Thursday
Friday
The Craft Brewjas Want You to Drink
SHE’S CRAFTY

The Craft Brewjas Want You to Drink

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.

Saturday
A Space-Age Party in South Beach
MOON WALK

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.

Oct 27, 9pm-3am (gratis tequila and beer 9-10pm), $15, Studio 743, 743 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, 305-674-0600, tickets here

Sunday
A Whole Day Dedicated to Your Bike
HOT WHEELS

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.

Oct 28, 10am-4pm, Gables Bike Day, Ponce de Leon Blvd and Miracle Mile, Coral Gables

Jazz Festing Like the French
SAY MERCI

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.

Oct 28, 4:30-6:30pm, The Biltmore, 1200 Anastasia Ave, Coral Gables, 855-311-6903

Tuesday
A Lone Star Throwdown at the Fed
WHERE’S THE BEEF

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.
