If Foie Gras Hosted a Lunch...
PÂTÉ ALL THE TIME

If Foie Gras Hosted a Lunch...

You remember Oak Tavern. Opened last month in the Design District. Anyway, they’re serving lunch now. Why you care: cheeseburgers. Cheeseburgers topped with foie gras and housemade maple bacon. Also, pork-belly banh mi stuffed with your old friend, foie gras. Well, just foie to you.

Mon-Fri, 11:30am-3pm, Oak Tavern, 35 NE 40th St, 786-391-1818

Ain’t No Party Like a Latke Party
HOT POTATO

Ain’t No Party Like a Latke Party

Nothing says the holidays like a plate of warm latkes. With vodka. You know, for dunking (or not). And you’ll find a heavy dose of both at the (wait for it...) Vodka Latke party at Eden Roc. There’ll be a DJ, dancing and rentable cabanas. Optimal potato-pancake-eating conditions.

Friday
A Surfboard Sale with an After-Party
BOARD ROOM

A Surfboard Sale with an After-Party

So, F1rst surf shop is having a sale, with 25% off the whole store. And we’re telling you because, well, maybe you need some Sex Wax. Or gratis drinks. See, there’ll be an after-party at a pop-up bar in the Jeronimo’s space. In case you needed a little extra motivation to swing by.

Dec 14, 5-8pm, F1rst Shop, 40 S Pointe Dr, 305-397-8103

Sunday
... And Now for Some Holiday Shopping
HOW BAZAAR

... And Now for Some Holiday Shopping

Holiday shopping at the mall is so... typical. You prefer to check off your list in the middle of... some flora. So head to the Miami Beach Botanical Garden for a curated bazaar filled with local artisans, food trucks and pet photos with Santa. Big moment for your goldfish.

Tuesday
A Dinner Based on Beer
EN ROUTE

A Dinner Based on Beer

This dinner includes a bunch of food that uses beer. Okay, simple enough. You’ll find five courses of stuff like oysters with CO2 beer mignonette, and duck confit with beer foam—each complemented by selections from Cigar City Brewing. So that’s five courses, five beers and one you. You like those numbers.

Dec 18, 6:45pm, $75, Route 9, 1915 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Coral Gables, 305-569-9009
