First, we’d like you to undress. And then accept a bonus $50 toward clothes from Gant, McNairy and more at the online handsomeness shop Wittmore. Next, pick out some nifty water-and-wind-repellent pants and coats for over 30% off. And for the final touch: slide on these HD-video-camera-equipped sunglasses. There. You’re set.
Things to do for January 17, 2013
A Massive Karaoke Party and Other Weekend Essentials
Argo weekend yourself.
Some Serious After-Work Drinks
Not all cocktail pitchers are created equal. Take SouthStreet. Starting tonight, they’re filling them with concoctions (like a Basil Collins) from the Bar Lab guys for $35. Also new: the happy hour bar menu. It’ll have fried catfish fingers. No, you can’t order them by the pitcher.
A DJ and a Cellist Walk into a Club
Tomorrow night, the New World Center is turning into a bona fide SoBe club. Yup, the Frank Gehry–designed building will be filled with pulsing lights, a thumping DJ and... a live symphony orchestra to accompany the sets. Great if you like your house music with a lot of tuba.
Here’s a good reason to go to Marlins Park: beer. Lots of it. Like a whole festival dedicated to the stuff, with live music, food trucks (Latin Burger, Ms. Cheezious...) and dozens of breweries. Expect locals like Wynwood Brewing Company and Gravity Brewbar... unless they get traded to the Toronto Beer Festival tomorrow.
A Secret 1920s-Style Speakeasy
So Art Deco Weekend starts tomorrow. It’s that weekend... that celebrates art deco... Anyway, this year they’re hosting a 1920s-themed speakeasy party. The location: secret. You’ll have to go to the Art Deco Welcome Center to get the address (and key). Also, you’ll have to really like flappers, caviar and vodka.
The Stage Gets All Karaoke on You
Tuesday night karaoke: you’re always game. And if there were ever a place to make it happen, it’s the Stage. Probably because it, you know, has a stage. Plus beer, cocktail and shot specials. Other karaoke essentials.
