Five bucks. That’s how much a full year of Fast Company is going for—including unfettered access to its mobile content—on Perks. Plus, in time for spring: 25% off dapper cashmere sweaters from Christopher Fischer and up to 40% off handmade, Italian leather boots from Peter Nappi. You know what to do.
Things to do for March 07, 2013
Beers and Bourbons and Chocolate LeBron
Snap, crackle, weekend.
The Miami Fine Chocolate & Food Show kicks off this weekend, and in case you’re not sure what that entails, it means, well, chocolate. Eighty vendors’ worth. Along with 35 different wine and beer pairing stations and... a life-size chocolate sculpture of LeBron. Which is how you know you’ve really made it.
How to Cure a Hangover in Brazil
Brazil. Land of sun, sea, string bikinis and... stew. Yup, stew. They love the stuff down there. In fact, they make a version called feijoada (pork, beans, beef, miscellaneous stew stuff) that apparently cures hangovers. You can get it Saturdays at Tutto’s Mare. So drop by and, um, see if it works.
So the Grovetoberfest guys thought they’d herald in the spring season with, oh, say, 150 beers at Peacock Park. Classy guys. Anyway, they’re rounding up a bunch of brewers (Abita, Kona, Cigar City), food vendors and games like cornhole and giant Jenga. In case you’re feeling coordinated.
Pool-Party Season Is Back. Rejoice.
There’s something special about your first pool party of the season. Maybe it’s the intoxicating smell of mojitos. Or suntan lotion. Or all of that day-glo latex. Whatever it is, it’s returned to the Shore Club, along with DJ Irie, bubbly and brunch at Terrazza. Welcome back, old friend.
On Mondays, Blackbird Ordinary has a new addition to their menu... we mean, wall. Big-screen double features. Up first: a twin billing of Clerks and Empire Records. There’ll also be gratis popcorn and specials on daiquiris and Old Fashioneds. Those are three things that probably taste good mixed together.
