Your Perks: 1) 20% off the HiddenRadio—a beautiful, powerful (and beach-ready) wireless speaker. 2) An iPhone case that also works as four pro-grade camera lenses. 3) 27% off Spikeball, your new favorite beach game. It’s like volleyball... but better.
Things to do for August 08, 2013
Flan Cupcakes, Bellinis and Barbershop Comedy
Ain’t no weekend like the one I got.
Behold: The Birth of the Flan Cupcake
So, the cronut—ho hum, NYC. Guess that’s the best you can do. Sad, really. See, Sweetness Bake Shop’s new outpost has two words for you: flan cupcake. And it’s exactly that. A piece of flan stuffed into a vanilla cupcake and topped with burnt caramel. They’re good like that.
New Short Rib Dumplings in Wynwood
Put your ear up to the screen. No, really. Okay, now listen carefully. That would be the short rib dumplings and chow fun from the new Chinese joint in Wynwood, Soi, calling your name. So yeah, you should probably answer.
Kidrobot. You know, the guys behind those Munny dolls. Anyway, they’re launching a clothing line. And they’re throwing a party to celebrate. You should go. Sip some gratis drinks. Try on the button-down with pinstripes that double as stripper poles. Singles not included.
This Saturday, Junior & Hatter is hosting a stand-up show in their grooming den in Wynwood. Herewith, a numerical breakdown. Comedians telling jokes: five. Emcees hosting: one. Mandarine Napoleon cocktails consumed if all of the above bomb: too many to count.
Eating Brunch. In a Wine Shop.
Wine shops—you’ve been to a few. And brunch, well, sure. But brunch in a wine shop... now, that’s genius. Enter: Happy Wine. On Sundays, they’re dishing up short-rib-topped eggs and $1.85 Bellinis and sangria. Or hell, just pluck a bottle from the shelf. You know, seize the grape.
