The Weekender

A Secret Bar, a Luau and Gratis Tacos

The power of weekend compels you.

Thursday
Respice. They’re Having a Sale.
SPICE OF LIFE

Respice. They’re Having a Sale.

The cultural curators at Respice are doing the sale thing this weekend. They’re taking 30% off their clothes (think: Not Hatch), 20% off leather (think: Mimot and Steve Mono) and 15% off sunglasses (think: Wood and Etnia Barcelona). Like you can’t use a new pair of shades around here.

Through Oct 5, Respice, 5760 Sunset Dr, 305-661-5006

Saturday
National Taco Day Is a Thing
TACO THE TOWN

National Taco Day Is a Thing

Yep, another one of those “national holidays.” This time, it’s tacos. Anyway, good excuse to enjoy a few at...
Cantina La Veinte, with seven specialty tacos like beef tongue and bone marrow for $4.50 each.
Jalapeño Mexican Kitchen, with up to five gratis tacos when you say “Happy Taco Day.” Yes, with a straight face.

Wynwood Brewing, but in the Grove
ALE YEAH

Wynwood Brewing, but in the Grove

Beer gardens. Gotta love ’em. Especially when they do things like pop up at the Ritz, chock-full of Wynwood Brewing beer and a special menu of brats, pretzels and Belgian beer cookies. Which, incidentally, go great with more beer.

This Involves Grass Skirts and Rum
LEI OF THE LAND

This Involves Grass Skirts and Rum

7:06pm: Arrive at Edge’s rooftop luau.
7:07pm: Partake in one of two gratis rum punches.
8:00pm: Sample the roasted pork and Hawaiian-inspired sides from five local chefs.
8:45pm: Shut down the party with your patented hula dance. Or your patented “keep eating and drinking” dance.

This Bar Is Hidden in a Liquor Store
’EASY RIDER

This Bar Is Hidden in a Liquor Store

There’s a new bar in town... but only for one night. It’s called El Patio. Because, well, it’s on a patio. That’s hidden behind a liquor store. And they’ll be serving gratis scotch and rum cocktails there. Just letting you know.
