Smaller in scope than the Sobe bacchanalia (but easier on your wallet), this food fest kicks off tonight with a walk-around tasting of 60 wineries and 30 restos, including faves North One 10, Timo's and River Oyster Bar. Any more than that would just be gluttony.
Things to do for April 23, 2009
Nonstop Wine, Bikinis and Brando
The weekend is contending.
We're hoping this "unauthorized" story of Marlon Brando's life focuses on his rebellious On the Waterfront years and not so much on his portlier Dr. Moreau days. Bonus points if you show up in a tuxedo and stroking a cat.
As a dedicated patron of the aquatic arts (read: bikinis), you'll want to make your way to Miami's marine stadium to watch this pro wakeboarding competition, which also features skate contests, BMX demos and a swimsuit fashion event. Well, what do you know.
Set at your favorite waterfront steakhouse, this wine-a-thon promises unlimited pours of more than 400 wines, with you casting your vote for best in show. It's sort of like that deal at the Westminster Kennel Club, only with cabs and chards instead of bloodhounds.
Just down the street from North Miami MoCA, this humble neighborhood joint is dishing out soulful Italian fare at recession-friendly prices. Drop in on a casual date and try their three-course feast—just sixteen bucks from 6-7pm every day.
