The weekend has all its turduckens in a row.

ON THAT NOTE

A New Jazz Lounge Lands in SoBe

Three steps to impressing your date at the new jazz-and-blues lounge that’s opened up in South Beach:
Step 1: Reserve a table.
Step 2: Note the subtle differences between cool and modal jazz.
Step 3: Play the hell out of a jazz flute up on stage.

Friday
An Epic Literary Battle. With Booze.
BOOK IT

An Epic Literary Battle. With Booze.

The book fair’s back. And this year, your friends at Bookleggers are bringing their roving library to Bardot for happy hour. Afterward, you can catch a local version of Literary Death Match and watch as four writers read their stories in a battle of intense wordplay. May the best syntax win.

Nov 22, 6pm, Bardot, 3456 N Miami Ave, 305-576-5570

Sunday
Poolside Beers and Roast Pig. Nice.
FEELING SWINE

Poolside Beers and Roast Pig. Nice.

We’re going to go out on a limb here and say that you could go for some pork. The kind that’s slow-roasted for hours. Begging to be enjoyed by a pool. With some beer. And bathing-suited persons of interest. Just call it a hunch.

THE NOTORIOUS P.I.G.

... And in Other Pork-Related News

Look, truth is, turkey’ll be dominating your life next week. You’re going to need a palate intervention beforehand. And if that means hunkering down with pork dishes from six local chefs (think: Giorgio Rapicavoli, Brad Kilgore, Jeremiah Bullfrog) and a bunch of cocktails, well, you’ve done far more for less.

Nov 24, 3pm, $50, Gab Studio, 225 NW 26th St, 305-200-5349

Monday
Listening to Music. Drinking Bourbon.
BLUES CLUES

Listening to Music. Drinking Bourbon.

Blues and bourbon. Classic marriage, those two. Seems only right that you honor their blessed union. So starting this Monday, you can swing by Swine, order up one of their bourbon cocktails on special and take in some live blues performances at the same time. You’re good like that.
