Things to do for April 03, 2014
Dance with a Symphony, Swim Like a Poet
Anything so innocent and built like that just gotta be named Weekend.
Grilled Cheese, Beer and Pickles
So there’s a new Daily Melt in Fort Lauderdale. And because they’re not insane, they didn’t get rid of the Maple Bacon Melt—but at this one you’ll find wi-fi, pastries, wine and beer. Also: a gourmet pickle bar. Order them neat.
Go to Market. Talk to Jenna. Get Wine.
Your mission: impress your dinner-party host. Your plan: talk to Jenna, the dedicated cheese expert and sommelier at the new Flavorish Market on the Upper Eastside. While you’re there, you could also pick up a smoked-salmon sandwich from Zak the Baker... in case you get hungry on the way.
Chelsea Handler. The Fillmore. You.
You’re not exactly known for spending your Friday nights watching late-night talk shows. But when Chelsea Handler shows up at the Fillmore, and you go sit there and watch her and shake your head and laugh, it’s sort of like you’re doing that. Sort of.
Rooftop Drinking and Dancing to Tuba
So Friday night, the New World Center is turning into a nightclub. Obviously. Hit the rooftop for a cocktail first, then head down to catch DJ Laura of Miami spinning electronic beats between interludes by the New World Symphony. Classiest mashup ever.
Well, this is happening. The kind folks of O, Miami are throwing you an epic pool party with swim sessions, poetry readings and a water aerobics class led by Afrobeta’s lead singer, Cuci Amador. Some might say that’s poetry in motion. Some might not say that.
