Fourth of July at Shore Club’s Penthouse

You’ve got access to the ideal fireworks viewing party: it’s at Shore Club’s penthouse, where you’ll have an open bar and a 360-degree view. Your other Perks: a month’s worth of potent cold brew coffee for 20% off. (If you’re with Outlook.com, make that 30% off.) Plus a stunning, limited-edition bike from California.

Here, Have Some Jellyfish and Sake

For tonight’s dinner plans, something simple. Just the five extravagant courses Chef Makoto will be serving at the James Beard House next week. You know, stuff like pickled jellyfish, razor-thin sashimi and Japanese tres leches, all paired with sake. Like we said: simple.

Jun 20, 7:30pm, $75 ($35 for sake pairing), Makoto, 9700 Collins Ave, Ste 107, Bal Harbour, 305-864-8600

Celebrating Surf Day with Beer

Huge holiday coming up. Sorry, huge non-holiday coming up. Yeah, it’s International Surfing Day. And F1rst is celebrating. So stop by. Drink a Mucho Aloha IPA. Watch Game 7 on their screen. Also, the first 50 people to spend $25 get a F1rst Heat tee. You’ve been running low on Sex Wax anyway.

Jun 20, 8pm-12:10am, no cost, F1rst Surf Shop, 40 S Pointe Dr, Ste 107, Miami Beach, 305-397-8103

Friday
You. Outside. With Bubbly.
ENDLESS SUMMER

You. Outside. With Bubbly.

This Friday’s officially the longest day of the year. Sounds like as good an excuse as any for a party. Enter: Area 31’s Summer Solstice soiree. You’ll partake in gratis appetizers on their renovated terrace, sip some Veuve and listen to a DJ spinning live. Go full-on Corey Hart.

Gratis Vino on a New Patio. Go.

Gratis Vino on a New Patio. Go.

Florida Cookery. Great restaurant. And now: great restaurant with a patio. Yeah, they’ve just opened up their new poolside terrace. They’re breaking in the space with a new summer seafood menu (think: watermelon-habanero ceviche), a raw bar and complimentary local brews. All the essential patio-inaugurating stuff.

Monday
An Asian BBQ Pop-Up at Bulldog BBQ
WOK THIS WAY

An Asian BBQ Pop-Up at Bulldog BBQ

If drunken crawfish, Korean-style barbecue ribs and sausage beignets sound like a dinner menu you might enjoy, well, yeah. Obviously. So you should carve out some time this Monday to drop by TwoWoks’ pop-up at Bulldog Barbecue. We’ll wait while you carve.

Jun 24, 6pm, $50, Bulldog Barbecue, 15400 Biscayne Blvd, North Miami, 305-940-9655
