Things to do for January 09, 2014

The Weekender

Beer, Late-Night Dancing and Your New Sunglasses

Dress for the weekend you want, not the weekend you have.

Thursday
Babalú Pops Up at the Raleigh
THE GIFT OF BAB

Babalú Pops Up at the Raleigh

Meet Babalú. Yes, yes, you’ve already met. But... not at the Raleigh. Which is where the eclectic little Lincoln Road shop will be hanging out for a few months. Inside, there’ll be all manner of SoBe necessities: Tom Ford glasses, Comme des Garçons gear, suntan lotion. Everything except, you know, the actual beach.

This Is About a Club. For Beer.
FEELING VINE

This Is About a Club. For Beer.

Three days. That’s all you’ve got until Wynwood Brewing locks up membership to their Vine Club. So if you enjoy things like gallon growlers, special access to limited-release beers and extended happy hours, might want to get yourself signed up. Note: you enjoy things like that.

Saturday
The Maple-Bacon Beer Cometh
FUNKY BUNCH

The Maple-Bacon Beer Cometh

Funky Buddha had a feeling. That maybe, just maybe, you’d be feeling some holiday party withdrawal. So they’ve decided to host a little get-together for their maple-bacon beer’s special release. And they’ve invited some food trucks to stop by with Cap’n Crunch–chicken sandwiches. Always invite the Cap’n Crunch–chicken guys.

So There’s This After-Party Thing...
YOUNG GUNS

So There’s This After-Party Thing...

What: An after-party.
Where: The YoungArts Campus. Also known as Bacardi Plaza. Also also known as the place where groundbreaking rum decisions were made.
Why: Open bar. A wall cast projecting live performances. Dancing. Dessert. Getting to eat cake while bringing back the macarena.

Jan 11, 9pm, $125, YoungArts Campus, 2100 Biscayne Blvd, 305-377-1140, ext 1803

Monday
The Super Bowl of Lady Bartending
RACK CITY

The Super Bowl of Lady Bartending

Speed Rack. It’s a competition. A competition where you’ll witness the city’s best female drink-slingers work their cocktail magic inside Avenue D while you consume several adult beverages. Sadly, there’s no contest for that last one.
