Things to do for April 30, 2009

The Weekender

Wine for Salmon, Beer for Golf and a New Shirt

The weekend feels D-Wade's pain.

Thursday
Spring Sale at Elie Tahari
Sale-ing

Spring Sale at Elie Tahari

We're not advocating an entire wardrobe overhaul, but a few new pieces ought to get you through the humid season. Elie Tahari is stepping up big today with a private three-hour sale in which the entire spring collection (pants, shirts, shorts) is 40 percent off.

Summer Whites Tasting at Bin 18
Sipping

Summer Whites Tasting at Bin 18

Your favorite numbered wine bar is helping you find your new go-to summer wine bottle with a gratis spread of off-the-beaten-path whites from around the world. Be sure to try the Australian Gewurztraminer, which is not only a lot of fun to say but also pairs well with things like sushi and smoked salmon.

No cost, 6:30-8:30pm, Apr 30, Bin No. 18, 1800 Biscayne Blvd, 786-235-7575

Friday
Back to the Garden
Opening

Back to the Garden

Start your evening at this exhibit, a cheeky riff on the Garden of Eden with figures in (highly) suggestive positions. Then move on to the afterparty across the street at Mayas Tapas, where complimentary sangria and plenty of gallerinas will help you make sense of it all.

Saturday
The Funky Pageantry of Style Miami
Perusing

The Funky Pageantry of Style Miami

Sort of a hipster flea market/carnival, this event combines all the things you love—complimentary cocktails, Grolsch and mini golf. You'll also want to swing by for sweaters by Krelwear, T-shirts from Gold Saturn and meats from artist/grill master Jason Hedges, who's bringing in a custom-made smoker.

Las Olas Wine and Food Fest
Samplings

Las Olas Wine and Food Fest

After a season of Miami food fests, you're ready to show Broward some love. Head to the famed street festival, where 60 restaurants (including Johnny V, Yolo and Cero) and 30 wineries will test your food and wine stamina. Good thing you've been training.

$75, 7:30-10pm, May 2, Las Olas Blvd (between 6th and 11th Ave), 954-524-4657
