One and a Half Pounds of Crab. Go.
CALL A CRAB

One and a Half Pounds of Crab. Go.

Cutting right to the chase: Alaskan king crab is here. A whole month early. Because Red, the Steakhouse has just received the first shipment of their infamous one-and-a-half-pound specimens straight from the Bering Sea. Bib up.

LENS CRAFTER

Rum and Photography. In a Barbershop.

Going down at Junior & Hatter: a photo exhibition from BBC journalist Andy Gallacher. His stuff spans 20 years of covering events, from the jungles of Central America to the streets of San Salvador. Also going down: gratis rum. Just keep it away from the Barbicide.

Sunday
How Pubbelly Does a French Brunch
L’ECHON PLANS

How Pubbelly Does a French Brunch

Q: Is it true that L’echon starts brunch this Sunday?
A: You betcha.
Q: What’s on the menu?
A: French toast and frog legs. Also: popcorn pancakes with bacon ice cream.

Monday
Tacos, Margaritas and El Grito
REBEL YELL

Tacos, Margaritas and El Grito

This Monday you may find yourself screaming the names of Mexican war heroes in between bites of tacos al pastor. Because Talavera is celebrating El Grito. And serving pitchers of tamarind margaritas. You know what that means: time to learn the names of some Mexican war heroes.

Sep 15, 11:30am-11pm (El Grito ceremony 11pm), Talavera Cocina Mexicana, 2299 Ponce de Leon Blvd, Coral Gables, 305-444-2955

Wednesday
Watching Casablanca on a Rooftop
MI CASA ES SU CASA

Watching Casablanca on a Rooftop

Here’s looking at you, Touché. On Wednesday they’re screening Casablanca on their rooftop and pairing it with Negronis, fresh-fruit hookahs and Kobe beef meatball sliders from former Top Chef contestant Carla Pellegrino. White tux: optional.
