El Mini Market Finds a New Home

Once upon a time, there lived a pop-up indie market. It was a happy little market, but something was missing. “What I require,” said the market, “is a barbecue dance party to accompany my wares. One with ’80s music, corn dogs and sangria.” And so it was.

Last Sunday of every month, 3pm, Brick House, 187 NW 28th St, 305-456-2629

Monday
Time for a Roller Skating Disco Party
ROLL WITH IT

Time for a Roller Skating Disco Party

Cut to this Monday. You’re at Grand Central, quads in hand. A stream of leisure-suited skaters freestyling around the floor. It’s just the kind of scene where you’d find an original Studio 54 DJ spinning some vinyl. Oh, and look. There he is. The time to start practicing your finger-gun salute is now.

Wednesday
A Party of Fire and Ice at 15th & Vine
PLAYING WITH FIRE

A Party of Fire and Ice at 15th & Vine

Brazilian margaritas. A charcuterie bar. Ice luges and fire pits. Yep, just another Wednesday at 15th & Vine. That’s because they’re taking over your favorite midweek day with a fire-and-ice-themed soiree set to some live music. Flame-retardant pants wouldn’t be entirely out of place here.

BBQ and Bourbon. Thanks, The Dutch.
’CUE BALL

BBQ and Bourbon. Thanks, The Dutch.

Summers are made for two things: bourbon and barbecues. Conveniently, the Dutch is hosting a weekly grill-out throughout the month of July. The first one: an all-American affair with smoked beef brisket, mackerel sandwiches and $40 summer punch bowls. And bourbon. Definitely bourbon.

Wednesdays in July, 7-10pm, $40 (drinks not included), The Dutch, 2201 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-938-3111, tickets here
