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.

Friday
Seriously Rare Kegs of Beer. Here.
BBQ & A

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.

Saturday
This Gas Station Has Growler Fills
FILL ’ER UP

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.

Tuesday
Coral Gables Gets an Epicure Market
MARKET VALUE

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.

Wednesday
Cuban-ish Burgers at Bread + Butter
MEET A FRITA

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.

Wednesdays in May, 11:30am-4pm and 5:30-10pm, Bread + Butter, 2330 Salzedo St, 305-442-9622
