Things to do for August 22, 2013
Pork Belly, Endless Bubbly and Downward Dog
Have you ever danced with the weekend by the pale moonlight?
Tonight, you’ll leave the office. You’ll head directly to the Fed. You’ll drink untold amounts of Nicolas Feuillatte champagne. Then, you’ll proceed to eat all of the mini pulled-pork sliders, smoked chicken and cheesy biscuits you can handle. Repeat as necessary.
Quick heads-up: MOCA’s Optic Nerve kicks off tonight. It’s a screening of 14 award-winning flicks from around the world. So, go. Watch a few short films. Jump in on some discussions. Impress everyone by reciting all of the lines from Anchorman on cue.
Good news: your Sunday lunch plans are covered. That is, of course, if you like six courses of stuff like grilled pork belly and 72-hour-marinated Korean short ribs prepared by Shokudo’s chef. And hey, they’re also bringing $5 sakitinis into the mix. You can just bring your stomach.
Reasons you go to Pubbelly: 1) Those bacon-wrapped dates. With goat cream. 2) Bottles of frosty saisons. 3) Chefs Makoto (yup, from the Bal Harbour sushi joint) and Mendin joining forces for one night to make izakaya-style dishes for you. That last one’s happening this Tuesday. You’re welcome.
Listen, it’s yoga. We get it. But this one’s... different. It’s taking place inside Wynwood Walls. At night. Jugofresh will be there, and Wynwood Kitchen & Bar’s offering dinner specials post-downward-dog. And hey, don’t leave without getting that mat’s number.
