Things to do for November 29, 2012

The Weekender

Keith Richards and Glowing Cocktails. It’s a Weekend.

There’s no wrong way to have a weekend.

Thursday
Mysterious DJs and Free Vodka
THE GREAT UNKNOWN

Mysterious DJs and Free Vodka

So the Garret is doing this secret DJ party thing tonight. Which essentially means there’ll be a crazy dance scene, a gratis vodka situation and some mystery man on the 1s and 2s. Hope you like surprises (or, you know, complimentary cocktails).

Friday
A Bunch of Glowing Cocktails
LET THERE BE LIGHT

A Bunch of Glowing Cocktails

Hey, here’s something weird. On Friday, you might find yourself drinking at the W. Okay, that’s not the weird part. The thing is, the drinks—they’ll be glowing. Yup, stuff like vodka infused with galangal and a sidecar with bergamot syrup. All on illuminated coasters. Remember, don’t look directly into the light.

Sunday
A New Poolside Brunch at the Mandarin
ON DECK

A New Poolside Brunch at the Mandarin

Pool-party season: over. Pool-brunching season: just hitting its stride. Ask the Mandarin—they’ve recently upgraded their digs for the occasion with a new elevated deck and a Sunday brunch of champagne and endless seafood. There’s no such thing as too much lobster.

Monday
The Stones and the Beatles. Together.
PHOTO BOMB

The Stones and the Beatles. Together.

We’re not here to debate whether Jagger or McCartney had the better hair (it was Ringo), but you can judge for yourself next week. There’s an exhibit on Ocean Drive featuring rare pictures taken by their tour manager back in the ’60s. Keith hasn’t aged a day.

Dec 3-9, no cost, The Betsy Hotel, 1440 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, 305-531-6100

Tuesday
Escaping from Basel in a Private Spa
FULL RETREAT

Escaping from Basel in a Private Spa

The James Royal Palm’s spa is hosting a private lounge for Basel recharging. The scene: invite-only. The cocktails: flowing. The hand massages: pretty tremendous. And hey, we’ve got a couple of passes to give away if you want to try one. Let us know if you’re interested, and we’ll let you know if you’re in.
