The Weekender

Flappers, Pig Ears and Gin-Filled Olives

Ain’t got nothing but love, babe, eight days a weekend.

Elixirs and Empanadas in Downtown
PERFECT TEN

Elixirs and Empanadas in Downtown

So there’s this new Peruvian juice bar in Downtown. If you’re wondering what it takes to be a Peruvian juice bar, well, it takes Peruvian juice (like acai, lucuma and camu camu). Also, apparently, it takes empanadas and Panther coffee from Wynwood. But that’s obvious.

Now open, Ten Fruits, 143 NE 3rd Ave, 305-373-7678

Four Courses of Whiskey at BLT
MASH IT UP

Four Courses of Whiskey at BLT

Whiskey. Just saying it makes you feel better about the day. Of course, instead of saying it, you could go to BLT tonight and have a four-course dinner that features it. Expect glazed pig ears and sweet-tea-marinated Muscovy duck paired up with things that come from a barrel. Whiskey, specifically.

May 9, 7pm, BLT Steak, 1440 Ocean Dr, Miami Beach, 305-673-0074

A Gatsby-Style Soiree. With Flappers.
END OF AN ERA

A Gatsby-Style Soiree. With Flappers.

Villa Azur’s going all Jay Gatsby tonight. They’re filling the place up with flappers, they’re bringing in a sax player, and they’re pouring a bunch of martinis. Go. Do the Charleston or something.

May 9, 7:30pm, Villa Azur, 309 23rd St, Miami Beach, 305-763-8688

Friday
Who’s Hungry for Cocktails...
POLO GROUNDS

Who’s Hungry for Cocktails...

Hey, happy World Cocktail Week. We would’ve wished you that earlier, but, you know... we just found out it existed. Anyway, Doma Polo’s celebrating with some special drinks. The kind you eat. We’d suggest chewing on a caipirinha cup that’s filled with passion fruit foam and gin-jelly-stuffed Spanish olives. Way to make yourself useful, gin.

Rocking Out at the Stage
AXE MEN

Rocking Out at the Stage

Concerts. You love everything about concerts. Except drum solos. And anytime the band plays “something from the new album.” But still, if it’s live music you want, try the Stage tomorrow. They’re hosting a party with a bunch of local bands and a two-for-one drink special. Your favorite.

May 10, 7pm, The Stage, 170 NE 38th St, 305-576-9577
