Things to do for September 19, 2013

The Weekender

Fried Chicken, Lucha Libre and Vintage Suits

Well, here’s another fine mess the weekend’s gotten you into.

Thursday
Friday
Vintage Threads and Drinking Bubbly
SUIT YOURSELF

Vintage Threads and Drinking Bubbly

Yup, it’s that time of the year again. When Ferragamo belts, Armani suits and Gucci shoes gather for your sartorial perusal. So think of the labels at Fashionably Conscious as an epic get-together of vintage handsomeness. And the kickoff to your self-gifting season.

Sep 20-22, $5-$25, Village of Merrick Park (on the ground floor, next to Lacoste), 358 San Lorenzo Ave, Coral Gables, 305-529-0200

Some Chefs Walk into a Monastery...
AMERICA, THE BEAUTIFUL

Some Chefs Walk into a Monastery...

Taste America’s this Friday. It’s an event where you’ll drink (thanks, Bar Lab crew), you’ll eat (five courses, courtesy of Michael Schwartz and Norman Van Aken) and you’ll swap bifocal-etiquette tips with Ted Allen in a Spanish monastery. Sounds solid.

Saturday
A Whole Day of Crazy Mexican-ness
MAIN EVENT

A Whole Day of Crazy Mexican-ness

This Saturday, you’re celebrating Mexican Independence Day. Again. Except this time, you’ll be joined by lucha libre wrestlers, roving mariachis, and 20 different food trucks and restaurants from around the city (think: Huahua’s and Ms. Cheezious). Also, there’ll be a burrito eating contest. So... throw your sombrero into the ring.

Sunday
Macchialina Goes All Brunch on You
LITTLE ITALY

Macchialina Goes All Brunch on You

Michael Pirolo’s decided you don’t have enough panettone with maple-pecan butter in your life. Polenta and eggs, too. Which is exactly why you’ll hit up his new brunch at Macchialina this Sunday. Because it has those things.

Sundays, noon-4pm, Macchialina, 820 Alton Rd, Miami Beach, 305-534-2124

Wednesday
A Fond Farewell to Fried Chicken
CHICKEN OUT

A Fond Farewell to Fried Chicken

Safe to say that Breaking Bad’s taught you a few lessons. Namely, all good things come to an end. Including things involving fried chicken. And so you’ll say goodbye to Michy’s all-you-can-eat fried-chicken Wednesdays. There’s only two of them left. No crying in the cornbread.

Wednesdays through Oct 2, $39, Michy’s, 6927 Biscayne Blvd, 305-759-2001
