Things to do for May 08, 2014
Cuban Burgers and Gas Station Growlers
All of the weekend loves all of you.
About the Big Game Tonight...
So you don’t have tickets for tonight’s Heat game—50 bucks gets you into the Hyde AmericanAirlines lounge (no ticket required) where you can watch the game on huge LED screens. Reality isn’t high-def enough anyway.
Seriously Rare Kegs of Beer. Here.
The other night, you and a friend were drinking the same kind of beer. So embarrassing, like wearing the same pants. Well, Craft Bar & Q has the limited-release, just-launched Gubna Imperial IPA from Oskar Blues—it’s aged in añejo tequila barrels. Don’t invite your friend.
This Gas Station Has Growler Fills
Typically, you pay at the pump. But if you end up at the brightly colored Mobil on Coral Way (stay with us here), go inside—you’ll find cookout-ready growlers, and local beers like La Rubia to fill them. So much better than corn nuts.
Coral Gables Gets an Epicure Market
Finally, a 24,000-square-foot Epicure Market in the Gables—gone are the Sunday treks across the MacArthur for quart jars of matzo ball soup and cinnamon-dusted rice pudding. And they’re throwing a kickoff party with music and gratis wine. The only way to shop, really.
Cuban-ish Burgers at Bread + Butter
Good news: your favorite neighborhood Cuban gastropub has launched a pop-up called the Frita Shop. Every Wednesday this month, the chef’ll offer a special menu of hot dogs, sandwiches and beef-and-chorizo burgers. Opt for the Chino with kimchi, onion and ketchup, or... something else. Do what you want, really.
