In Your Own Image

Rising art star/cultural prankster Bert Rodriguez unveils a solo show tonight comprised of 134 self-postcards that the bald artist left in Paris cafés, which were mailed back with hairstyles and features filled in by strangers. See which Bert looks the best in between long sips of wine.

Alba at Solé on the Ocean

The South Beach pool party migrates north with the launch of this swimsuit-friendly poolside happy hour in Sunny Isles. Drinks are two-for-one, there's a live DJ spinning oceany beats, and bottle service is available in the cabanas. Take that, Shore Club.

Saturday
Go Green Fashion Event
Eco

Go Green Fashion Event

You can celebrate Earth Day in many ways. We suggest watching models strut down the catwalk in eco-friendly vintage clothing at the Catalina Hotel. We also suggest enjoying drink specials, live jazz music and the company of eco-friendly fashion models.

Sunday
National Garlic Day at Prima Pasta
Bulbing

National Garlic Day at Prima Pasta

As you obviously know by now, Sunday is a major holiday—National Garlic Day. Prima Pasta is celebrating the occasion with dishes like the Vongole di Prima (baby clams, white wine, garlic and basil), priced at the incredibly low $4.19. Bring some Tic Tacs.

Tuesday
Absinthe Tasting at Morton's
Green Fairy

Absinthe Tasting at Morton's

Morton's is organizing a meet-and-greet between you and absinthe (as if you don't already know each other). You'll sample three different cocktails made with the green elixir, plus bar snacks like oysters Rockefeller (also made with absinthe) and sliced tenderloin mini cheeseburgers (wisely, absinthe-free).

$45, Apr 21, 6:30-8pm, Morton's, 17399 Biscayne Blvd (N. of 171st), 305-949-5934
