We assume you need to buy someone a gift. So here are three great options: 1) A snow-globe-sized wireless speaker, 30% off. 2) Spending $25 and getting $50 worth of handsome gadgets and accessories from LA gadget shop Alpha. 3) Impossibly delicious, freshly baked cookies delivered directly from Brooklyn.
Things to do for December 13, 2012
Potato Latkes, Foie Burgers and a New Longboard
Oh, the weekend’ll come out, tomorrow...
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
