Cocktails with Clairvoyant Todd Hershey

You're not typically one for psychics or tarot cards, but something tells us your future involves being at the Acqualina tonight for a cocktail party featuring Master Clairvoyant Todd Hershey and gratis drinks and hors d'oeuvres. You're getting very thirsty…

No cost, 7-9pm, Mar 12, 17875 Collins Ave (at 178th), 305-918-8000

Friday
The Grandest Happy Hour
Sipping

The Grandest Happy Hour

You already know the views and vibes at the Double Grand are worth braving the Doubletree for. Now the waterfront lounge provides a reason to make this your first post-work stop on Fridays, with two hours of absolutely complimentary mojitos and live DJs.

No cost, 5-7pm, Fridays, 1717 N. Bayshore Dr (S. of NE. 18th), 786-273-8136

Spam Allstars Concert
Audio

Spam Allstars Concert

We'll forgive the DWNTWN development committee their blatant disregard for vowels if only because they organize events like this Friday's free outdoor concert, featuring beer, breeze and your favorite improvisational Latin hip-hop troupe, the Spam Allstars.

No cost, 5:30pm, Mar 13, Bayfront Park, 301 N. Biscayne Blvd (at 3rd)

Monday
Spring Prix-Fixe at the Forge
Dining

Spring Prix-Fixe at the Forge

Starting Monday, the Forge ups the ante with a three-courser dishing out petit filet with truffle hollandaise, white chocolate key lime pie and escargot strudel. To find something like this anywhere else, you'd probably have to visit Dubai. (No, seriously—they've got a sister restaurant there.)

$45, Mondays-Saturdays, 432 W. 41st St (W. of Sheridan), 305-538-8533

Tuesday
St. Patrick's at the Irish Times
Blarney

St. Patrick's at the Irish Times

If there's one spot this week you choose to don a green hat and chug lime-colored beer, let it be the block party at Irish Times. Two live bands and many, many bars set up along the closed-off street. If this doesn't get you Riverdancing, nothing will.

6pm, Mar 17, 5850 Sunset Dr (at SW. 58th Ct), 305-667-4114

Wednesday
Wild Wine Wednesdays at Bistro One
Swirling

Wild Wine Wednesdays at Bistro One

Irish holidays aside, humpday usually finds you jonesing for a full-bodied red. The in-house resto at the Ritz now has you covered with 75 wines at 60 percent off—meaning you can start with a bottle for $15… and move on to a second bottle for $15.

5-10pm, Wednesdays, 1 Lincoln Rd (at Collins), 786-276-4008
