Things to do for May 15, 2014
South Beach Pizza and a Whole Lot of Fried Chicken
The weekend will take the next elevator.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
