The Weekender

A Pop-Up Beer Garden at Basel. Candied Bacon. The Weekend...

It’s beginning to look a lot like the weekend.

Thursday
A Pop-Up Beer Garden for Basel
ARTS AND DRAFTS

A Pop-Up Beer Garden for Basel

You love bacon. And beer. And combining the two: well, that’ll do. So check out the pop-up Basel Biergarten. They’ll be serving local brews from Due South, Cigar City and Michael’s Genuine, along with live art and music. Oh, and a bunch of candied bacon. We assume that’s for dunking.

A Night with Kurt Cobain
STATE OF NIRVANA

A Night with Kurt Cobain

Kurt Cobain. Lead singer of Nirvana. Maybe you’ve heard of them. Anyway, tonight the Gusman Center is hosting a night dedicated to Cobain with a short film, a “Smells Like Teen Spirit” dance number and a performance by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore. This calls for your finest flannel.

Friday
Your Between-Exhibits Maki Is Here
ROLL WITH IT

Your Between-Exhibits Maki Is Here

SushiSamba is lending its maki-making skills to Midtown for Basel. And if there’s anything that brings your art appreciation to the next level, it’s some tightly rolled tempura. Which is why you should grab some at their new pop-up while regrouping between fairs. Also great for regrouping between vodkas.

Through Dec 9, noon-midnight, SambaPop, 3252 NE 1st Ave, 305-673-5337

Saturday
A Crafty Pool Party at Deauville
DE NADA

A Crafty Pool Party at Deauville

To cap off your crazy week: some aggressive aquatic relaxation. The NADA art fair has you covered with a pool party at Deauville complete with live DJs, plentiful ’cue and some DIY arts and crafts. Decoupage is so soothing.

Sunday
So Long Basel, Hello... Brazil
THE GRAND FINALE

So Long Basel, Hello... Brazil

The guys from Eating House are shutting things down on Sunday. Yup, they’re sending off Basel with a live chocolate cook-off and some gratis chocolate caipirinhas at the Stage. Afterward, you can catch a screening of an Oscar-nominated Brazilian flick. Or skip that and grab another caipirinha.
