The Weekender

Gin Punch, Cigars and Dancing with Pandas

Rollin’ with the weekend.

Friday
This Place Is a Bit Over-the-Top
LIFE OF THE LHARDY

This Place Is a Bit Over-the-Top

Stuff you’ll find in the Gables’ new high-profile Italian saloon: gilded ceilings. Stately red leather armchairs. Negronis. Saffron-and-sausage risotto. Telemundo personalities. Hey, if it’s good enough for Telemundo...

Gin Punch, DJs and... McDonald’s Art
SOLID GOLD

Gin Punch, DJs and... McDonald’s Art

DJ-spun music and gratis gin punch at the Bass Museum. Sounds like a Friday night plan if we’ve ever heard one. Oh, and yeah: art. They’re featuring a bunch of installations (like McDonald’s cups and cocktail carts) covered in gold. Go for the gold, so to speak.

Mojitos First. Then, the Pandas.
DOUBLE HEADER

Mojitos First. Then, the Pandas.

You’ll start with mojitos... at TK’s in the Grove. Because they’re putting out 20 different kinds (like coconut and chipotle) along with hand-rolled cigars.
And then it’s on to... Rec Room’s Pandamonium party. There, you’ll find yourself surrounded by stuffed pandas, consuming cocktails served by bartenders wearing panda suits and dancing with a special panda guest. Probably not Ling-Wong.

Saturday
Bottomless Beer at Marlins Park
DRAFT PICK

Wednesday
Desperado at Taperia Raca
WITH THE BANDERAS

Desperado at Taperia Raca

Hey, new cinema night at Taperia Raca. This week they’re screening the seminal classic Desperado in their courtyard. Yes, Banderas was in fine form. But so are the Spanish nachos and salchipapas you’ll be snacking on.

Wednesdays in September, 7:30pm, Taperia Raca, 7010 Biscayne Blvd, 305-751-8756
