STARRY NIGHT

Block Partying in the Gables

Tomorrow, it’ll be Friday night. Or as you like to call it... well, Friday night. And if anything’s worth celebrating, it’s the first one of the new year. On the docket: a block party with food from 11 local restaurants and live music under the stars. Let them guide you to... the bar.

Jan 4, 7pm-midnight, Giralda Under the Stars, 100 Giralda Ave (between Ponce de Leon Blvd and Galiano St), 305-569-0311

A Big Fishbowl of Beer
BOWLED OVER

A Big Fishbowl of Beer

Beer. It’s the kind of thing that tastes great after a long week. Or, you know, a three-day week. Anyway, the happy hour at the South Beach Tiki Bar has 32-ounce fishbowls filled with the stuff. Swing by on Friday and you can refill the thing for $5. Bring a ladle.

Saturday
Food Trucks and Sean Kingston
KEEP ON TRUCKIN’

Food Trucks and Sean Kingston

There’s a food-truck battle royal happening on Saturday. Seems like the sort of thing you should probably judge. The site: Magic City Casino. The field: eight of the city’s best mobile eateries (think Ms. Cheezious and BC Tacos). The halftime entertainment: Sean Kingston. Take that, Super Bowl.

Sunday
Harry’s Gets into the Brunch Game
PIE HIGH

Harry’s Gets into the Brunch Game

Hey—new year, new pizza. Specifically, breakfast pizza. Because starting this Sunday, Harry’s is doing the brunch thing with a different egg-topped breakfast pie every week. Plus, beer flights and anise sticky buns. Hey, for a balanced brunch.

Bacon Boats: Now a Thing
SEE WORTHY

Bacon Boats: Now a Thing

Here’s a viable reason to brunch in west Miami: bacon boats. Yeah, Pincho Factory’s weaving together 12 strips of bacon, and stuffing it with a cheese omelet (strong start, 2013). Also on the menu: red velvet flapjacks with mint frosting. You totally stopped listening after we said bacon boats...
