Sushi, Hotel Cinema and Post-Game Scotch

The weekend is on the bubble.

Dinner Party

Rok and Roll at Kung Fu Sushi

Your new Thursday night itinerary: dinner at Catalina Hotel's open-air sushi resto, where twenty bucks gets you sake and two rolls. After dinner head to Rok Bar across the street, where your dinner receipt gets you in the door with a gratis shot waiting your arrival. Nightlife synergy is a glorious thing.

$20, 7pm, Thursdays starting Feb 26, 1720 Collins Ave (near 17th), 305-534-7905

Friday
The Beauvilles at the Vagabond
Garden Party

The Beauvilles at the Vagabond

The live music fiends at Sweat Records have organized a night of aural pleasure in the Vagabond's breezy backyard garden featuring the Beauvilles, a rock act dripping with R&B influences. Get there before midnight for $1 Stellas and PBRs.

Doors open at 10pm, no cost before 11pm, Feb 27, 30 NE. 14th St, 305-379-0508

Saturday
Dewar's Clubhouse
After-Party

Dewar's Clubhouse

Saturday night the Miami Heat take on the New York Knicks, and while we're not placing any predictions on the outcome, we're pretty sure we'll find you at the Dewar's after-party suite at the AA Arena once the final buzzer sounds. Complimentary cocktails are somehow appropriate whether or not your team wins.

No cost, after 4th quarter, Feb 28, Dewar's Lounge, Suite Level of AA Arena,  786-777-1000

Sunday
Four Short Films at the Standard
Screening

Four Short Films at the Standard

This weekend the hotel gives you four reasons to park yourself on a floor cushion, cold beer in hand. Artsy filmmaker Collier Schorr screens four short films on subjects like rodeo riders, wrestlers and Richard Prince. Make that four beers.

No cost, 8pm, March 1, 40 Island Ave (W. of Alton), 305-673-1717

Monday
Lunch at da Campo Osteria
Power Lunch

Lunch at da Campo Osteria

If you've been waiting for the perfect excuse to check out Todd English's new temple to fresh-pulled mozzarella, we've found it. The usually pricey restaurant just introduced a $20 three-course lunch menu that includes Chianti-braised short ribs and homemade gelato. It's a deal worth braving Broward County for.

Mondays-Fridays, 12-3pm, 3333 NE. 32nd Ave, Fort Lauderdale, 954-226-5002
