30% Off Your Thanksgiving Turkey

This year, you’re getting the most prized breed of turkeys—a USDA Grade A, all-natural beauty from Robinson’s—delivered, for 30% off. And since you’ll need something to carve it with, we’re getting you up to 64% off the sharpest knives on earth. And, not Thanksgiving-y, but still: some handsome, exclusive vintage furniture.

Sushi from a Former Le Cirque Chef

You know Bondst. The sushi joint at the Townhouse. Well, they have a new chef. And he hails from Le Cirque. To honor his arrival: a special three-course menu filled with things like crab cakes, blistered shishito peppers and avocado tacos. That... is how you make a first impression.

Available now at Bondst, 150 20th St, Miami Beach, 305-398-1806

Pinups on the Big Screen

Hedy Goldsmith Does Marlins Park

In case you didn’t get enough sugar yesterday, we’ve got a certain cocktail party that might interest you. Pastry chef Hedy Goldsmith is throwing a confectionary fete at Marlins Park. On hand to taste: buttered-popcorn gelato, tangerine creamsicle pot de crème and cookies. Normal, non-fun-size cookies.

You Really Should Be Picnicking
PIE HIGH

You Really Should Be Picnicking

At this picnic party by the bay, the folks from the Fed will be slinging plates full of fried chicken along with sides and sweets from Whole Foods. Also, there’ll be a pie contest judged by Lee Schrager and Hedy Goldsmith. Yup, there’s that Hedy Goldsmith again.
