Things to do for February 12, 2009

The Weekender

Manson's Art, Morrissey and Side-Out You

The weekend aims to please.

Thursday
Happy Hour at Red Light
Sip

Happy Hour at Red Light

Kris Wessel's scruffy gourmet spot on the river introduces a lover's-weekend happy hour that pairs sour cherry vodka cocktails with "quicky" snacks like blood orange ceviche and "dripping hot" shrimp cocktail…along with plenty of food innuendo.

5-8pm, Feb 12-15, Red Light, 7700 Biscayne Blvd (at 77th), 305-757-7773

Friday
Morrissey Listening Party
Moody Pop

Morrissey Listening Party

Friday the 13th seems an appropriate date for a party celebrating rock icon (and perpetually distraught) crooner Morrissey's new album. Get there before midnight to score complimentary Grolsch and potentially two tickets to see the distressed singer live.

Saturday
Beach Volleyball Lessons
Spike

Beach Volleyball Lessons

Admit it, your volleyball serve could use some professional guidance. Thanks to the vascular folks at Equinox you can pick up pointers for free at their weekly beach volleyball tutorial in South Beach. With any luck you'll be spiking alongside those Brazilian ex-models who always seem to need an extra player.

No cost, 10-11am, Saturdays, 8th St and Ocean Dr on the beach, 305-673-1172

Closing Reception for "Trismegistus"
Art

Closing Reception for "Trismegistus"

Saturday's your last chance to bask in the watercolor phantasmagoria that is Marilyn Manson's creative output. Apparently the goth rocker has been diligently painting for the last decade. Predictably, it's dark stuff, even during those Rose McGowan years.

No cost, 6-10pm, Feb 14, 101/Exhibit, 101 NE. 40th St (at NE. 1st Ave), 305-573-2101

V-Day Menu at Red Koi

V-Day Menu at Red Koi

Nothing says casual romance like prix-fixe sushi, and when you book a table at this Coral Gables sashimi parlor, you'll have your pick of three special V-Day feasts starting at $32. A complimentary Passion on Fuegos cocktail sweetens the deal…and doubles the languages.

Feb 14, Red Koi, 317 Miracle Mile (between Salzedo and LeJeune), 305-446-2690
