Things to do for May 22, 2014

The Weekender

Weird Mojitos, New Shirts and Wet Sundays

The weekend will need a late checkout.

Thursday
John Varvatos Is at Bal Harbour Now
DEAR JOHN

John Varvatos Is at Bal Harbour Now

You’ve got that thing at Tobacco Road tonight. You’re thinking that John Varvatos ombre button-down with a subtle floral print would do the trick. There’s a new shop in Bal Harbour with white oak floors, a big leather couch... and a certain ombre shirt.

Friday
Mac and Cheese and Mint Juleps and You
FLOWER HOUR

Mac and Cheese and Mint Juleps and You

Happy hour on a Thursday: sure. Happy hour on a Saturday: little more rare. Happy hour on Memorial Day: not an unenticing prospect. Anyway, Orange Blossom now has... all those things, really, with a daily session of mac and cheese, juleps and salmon tartare. Weekend juleps just taste better.

A Whole Lot of Bourbon. Also, Pork.
FLIGHTS OF FANCY

A Whole Lot of Bourbon. Also, Pork.

Some bourbon tastings, you might get some peanuts. This one’s... not that. Think six pork-centric courses, like seared foie gras with candied bacon and dark chocolate. Oh, and also so much rare bourbon that there’s a four-figure cost of admission. Might want to consider dipping into your bourbon slush fund.

Sunday
The Fed’s Got a New Brunch for You
FED HEAD

The Fed’s Got a New Brunch for You

If the Federal can make Pig Wings a thing, you’ve got to wonder what they can do with brunch. Or not. What they can do is Green Eggs ‘n Ham (biscuit, creamed spinach, pork shoulder) and endless michelada mojitos. Yes, michelada mojitos. That’s what they can do.

Monday
The Return of Salvation Sundays
WET BAR

The Return of Salvation Sundays

You might’ve heard. Everybody’s got reason to celebrate on Monday. Yep, it’s the return of Salvation Sundays at Wet... kicking off on a Monday for some reason. Anyway, there will be poolside cabanas, there will be champagne, and there will be DJ Mark Gallo. Feels like old times, doesn’t it...
