New Miami Perks

In case you missed it, we arranged for a few UrbanDaddy hook-ups for you, like discounted massages, free martinis and gym passes. It's okay, you can thank us later.

Atchana's East/West Kitchen
GRAND OPENING

Atchana's East/West Kitchen

This Coconut Grove newcomer has been getting a lot of buzz for its fiery coconut curries and crispy snapper. See if it's justified when the Thai spot hosts a grand opening shindig tonight with complimentary cocktails and hors d'oeuvres.

No cost, 5-8pm, Mar 26, Atchana's, 2951 S. Bayshore Dr, 305-774-0404

Friday
Café Bustelo Sessions 2009
LISTENING PARTY

Café Bustelo Sessions 2009

You're going to need plenty of café con leches to get through this weekend, so stop by this Gansevoort caffeine depot, where you'll also be treated to free in-cafe performances from turntable talent like Charles Webster, Tosca and King Britt.

Various times from Mar 26-28, Café Bustelo, 2319 Collins Ave, 305-535-9999

Bites and Booze at Andu
SIPPING

Bites and Booze at Andu

Andu's Jetsons-esque lounge is launching a new happy hour with $3 beers and half-price cocktails. Add to that bar bites like Moroccan calamari and rioja-steamed mussels, and you've got one more reason to leave work early.

Tuesdays-Fridays, 4-7pm, Andu, 141 SW. 7th St, 786-871-7005

Saturday
Jezebel at Sunset Lounge
Start Me Up

Jezebel at Sunset Lounge

Jade Jagger is many things—socialite, jewelry designer and daughter of Mick. Saturday she's also your lovely host for the evening, bringing her Ibiza-branded soiree to the Mondrian for a night of bayfront revelry.

No cost, 9pm-2am, Mar 28, Mondrian, 1100 West Ave, 305-672-2662.

Spring '09 at Big Drop
SALE-ING

Spring '09 at Big Drop

Take a midday break at this NY style haven to sip gratis cocktails and check out the new spring lines from Alexander McQueen, Shirt by Shirt and Trovata—all to the tunes of DJ Wasabi. For some reason, everything fits better when there's good bass.

Monday
Karaoke Mondays at 8 oz.
OPEN MIC

Karaoke Mondays at 8 oz.

Your favorite new eco-friendly burger bar introduces a weekly karaoke night, daring you to pair hormone-free beef with AC/DC. Something that should help: until the end of March, they're still giving out a free draft beer with every burger.

9:30pm, Mondays, 8 oz., 1080 Alton Rd (S. of 11th St), 305-397-8246

Wednesday
BYOB at Maya's Tapas and Grill
NO CORKAGE

BYOB at Maya's Tapas and Grill

Starting in April, the Lincoln Rd spot gives you another good reason to brown-bag it, as they graciously wave all corkage fees. Of course, they're also taking half off all bottles of their own wine, so as your friend Joe Pesci would say, either way you win…

Mondays-Wednesdays starting Apr 1, Maya's Tapas, 809 Lincoln Rd, 305-538-0058
