Things to do for May 15, 2014

The Weekender

South Beach Pizza and a Whole Lot of Fried Chicken

The weekend will take the next elevator.

Thursday
There’s a New Chef in Town
FORGE AHEAD

There’s a New Chef in Town

You could always count on the Forge for a solid bone-in filet. And you still can. It’ll just be prepared by new Michelin-starred chef Christopher Lee—a Miami Beach transplant from Manhattan. He brought you some Jamaican jerk bacon and duck pastrami, too, so he can stay.

Available now at The Forge, 432 41st St, Miami Beach, 305-538-8533

Coal-Fired Pizza and a Full Bar
UPPER CRUST

Coal-Fired Pizza and a Full Bar

You’re pretty tired of having to leave the beach for perfectly charred pizza from a coal-burning oven. So don’t. Anthony’s Coal Fired Pizza is now open in SoBe, and they’d like very much to get you a Paul & Young Ron pie (meatballs, sausage, peppers) and a martini.

Friday
Your Friday Beer Is Right Here
BEER IN HEADLIGHTS

Your Friday Beer Is Right Here

On a Friday during American Craft Beer Week, you can’t just do some normal beer after work. But you could go to Wynwood Brewing Company. They’ll be tapping a rare keg of Chocolate City—that would be like a Magic City Pale Ale, but more chocolaty. Whoa.

Sunday
Brunch and a Show. At R House.
SECRET’S IN THE SAUCE

Brunch and a Show. At R House.

Meet “Sunday Sauce,” the new brunch-and-music series at R House. They were either going to call it that or “Come Eat Chili-and-Coffee-Braised Short Rib with a Bottomless Bacon-Infused Bloody Mary While There’s a DJ or an Indie Rock Band Happening.” They probably made the right choice. Probably.

Wednesday
Michy’s Is So Very Good to You
CHICKEN RUN

Michy’s Is So Very Good to You

You’re always up for a challenge, but negotiating prime pool-party season along with the triumphant return of Michy’s unlimited-fried-chicken nights is going to be tricky. The chicken is so crispy. And there’s cornbread. Okay. Challenge accepted.

Wednesdays, $39, Michy’s, 6927 Biscayne Blvd, 305-759-2001
