The Weekender

Gratis Goat Sliders, Spa Perks and a Jamaican Easter

The weekend is putting all its eggs in one basket.

Thursday
1 New Perk
PERKS

1 New Perk

The Mondrian at South Beach just got a new spa, and thanks to Perks you're getting half-off your first rubdown. Don't worry: your usual masseuse will never know…

Friday
Andu's Smoked Pig Fridays
SMOKE OUT

Andu's Smoked Pig Fridays

Your Friday afternoons will now be more succulent thanks to Andu's new whole-roasted pig and mesquite-smoked goat happy hour. The pig and goat sliders are on the house, and beers cost you just $3—setting the stage for an epic beer-fueled pork vs. goat showdown.

5-7:30pm, Fridays, Andu, 141 SW. 7th St (at SW. 1st Ct), 786-871-7005

Saturday
Waltz with Bashir
SCREENING

Waltz with Bashir

Probably history's first cartoon documentary, Waltz with Bashir is filmmaker Ari Folman's haunting animated depiction of a 1982 Israeli army invasion, and it arrives in MB this weekend. You know, just in case you're not feeling like I Love You, Man.

Sunday
Easter at 1 Bleu
BRUNCHING

Easter at 1 Bleu

1 Bleu's Easter prix fixe runs long enough into the afternoon to justify binging on late-day eats like Jamaican braised oxtail and pistachio-crusted lamb rack. The sounds of a live string trio and some of the best ocean views in town ought to satisfy as well.

Matisyahu at LIV
CONCERT

Matisyahu at LIV

Sunday's Matzah Mayhem at LIV gets a serious jolt of star power when Hasidic Jewish reggae musician Matisyahu makes a special guest appearance, adding to the sounds by DJ Artime and the kosher bar. Bearding is optional.

$20, 10pm, Apr 12, LIV at Fountainebleu, 4441 Collins Ave, 305-674-4680, tickets here

Monday
Mezze Mondays at Anise Taverna
GRAZING

Mezze Mondays at Anise Taverna

The Upper East Side Greek house helps you banish Mondays by offering you twenty of their most popular dishes in tapas or mezze form. Which means you get to feast on grilled octopus with fennel, lamb in phyllo and spanakopita for around $4 a plate.

Monday nights, Anise Taverna, 620 NE. 78th St (at Biscayne Blvd), 305-758-2929
