CGM Launch Party at Louis

A room full of models and an open bar make you one very satisfied partygoer. That's what you'll enjoy at Caroline Gleason Management's season launch party, when they unveil their latest crop of leggy, svelte talent.

DeVito South Beach Introduces Lunch
LUNCHING

DeVito South Beach Introduces Lunch

Danny DeVito's chophouse is still going strong, dishing out fist-sized meatballs and spicy calamari. Now you can get the belly-filling fare for lunch, though you might have to endure the wee man's movies looped on flat screens inside. (Fingers crossed for Twins.)

11:45am-3pm, Monday-Friday, DeVito South Beach, 150 Ocean Dr (between 1st and 2nd), 305-531-0911

Tuesday
Inauguration Station at SushiSamba
INAUGURATING

Inauguration Station at SushiSamba

The Brazilian-Japanese fusion spot gets all patriotic in honor of Obama's swearing-in, with a live broadcast and themed cocktails like the $11 Red (raspberries, rum, white tea). Show up as Uncle Sam and you may walk away with the cosplay cash prize. Or a person who's into Uncle Sams.

No cost, 7pm, Jan 20, SushiSamba Dromo, 600 Lincoln Rd (between Pennsylvania and Euclid), 305-673-5337

Wednesday
PopRocks Party at Buck 15

PopRocks Party at Buck 15

Wednesday is the new Friday, according to the folks at graffiti-embellished lounge Buck 15. Their new hump-day party, aptly titled PopRocks with DJ Zehno, lures you with two-for-one Skky Vodka drinks until 11pm, no cover and a laid-back atmosphere. Think of it as casual Wednesday.

No cost, 10pm, Jan 21, Buck 15, 707 Lincoln Ln (above Miss Yip), 305-534-5488
