The weekend is a lot of weekend.

Thursday
Brasil Night at JAM at MAM
Carnaval

Brasil Night at JAM at MAM

The Miami Art Museum's monthly cocktail event gets considerably more caliente this evening with a Sao Paulo theme that'll have you sipping caipirinhas, watching samba dancers and dodging capoeira demonstrations. Oh, and there's art, too.

$10, 5-8:30pm, Feb 19, MAM, 101 W. Flagler Ave (at SW. 1st), 305-375-3000

Friday
Artoconecto's "Fun" Raiser
Pony Party

Artoconecto's "Fun" Raiser

The wacky folks at Artoconecto are at it again, raising funds for art projects and tempting you with old-timey thrills, which in this case means free pony rides (for kids and adults), mini-burgers/mini-dogs and plenty of Grolsch and sangria to help it all make sense.

$10, 5-11pm, Feb 20, 158 NW. 91st St (near NW. 2nd Ave), 305-490-6906

Overthrow at the King Is Dead
Coup d'état

Overthrow at the King Is Dead

The city's hottest monthly party lands in the Design District this weekend with promises of world-class DJs (including MIA's tour DJ Contra and Jessica Who?), dance-induced mayhem and free Red Stripe until they run out. Hooray, revolution.

$10 or RSVP, 11pm, Feb 20, 10 NE. 40th St (near N. Miami), 305-573-3355, RSVP here

Sunday
Tasting Village at Sobe Wine and Food Fest
Taste Test

Tasting Village at Sobe Wine and Food Fest

A few tickets remain for Sunday's coveted Food-stock on the beach, where you'll have seven hours to knock back all the wine and apps you can manage from more than fifty wineries and a dozen restaurants. We're sure Padma will appreciate your stamina…

$212.50, 11am-6pm, Feb 22, 13th and Ocean (at the beach), 877-762-3933

Monday

Monday Mojitos at Level 25

The Conrad's 25th-floor bar is downtown's condo canyon nightlife gem. Monday they're celebrating a year of Blade Runner-esque views and strong cocktails with $6 raspberry mojitos and "Brickelltinis"—sort of like martinis, but with more beach.

6pm, Feb 23, 1395 Brickell Ave (between SE. 13th and 14th), 305-503-6529
