The Weekender

Beer, Pork and a 12-Hour Picnic

Tempted by the fruit of a weekend.

Like Thanksgiving. But Now.

Like Thanksgiving. But Now.

Because it’s never too early to give thanks to the effects of tryptophan, Uncle Tom’s is putting out an off-menu, Thanksgiving-ish spread tonight. We’re talking things like smoked bone-in pork, roasted butternut squash, dressing, cranberry sauce, cornbread, green beans and pumpkin pie. Bonus: no relatives.

Watching Old VHS Tapes for Fun
TALE OF THE TAPES

Watching Old VHS Tapes for Fun

So some guys dug up a bunch of VHS tapes from garage sales and thrift stores, then decided to add live commentary to all of the weirdness they found and make a film festival out of it. That’s happening tonight along with pours of Brooklyn Brewery beer. Tom Bergeron sends his regards.

Important Heat-Season Intel

Things to know as we head into the Heat’s 2014 season:
A. You can now reserve your parking spot before the game starts using the ParkJockey app.
B. Hyde’s got a new menu with chicken katsu and The HYDEcar with cognac, Cointreau and lemon juice.
C. It’s pretty cold in Cleveland.

Here’s a 12-Hour Picnic
MISFIT BIT

Here’s a 12-Hour Picnic

To thoroughly break in their new back patio, Steam’s throwing a 12-hour-long picnic with gratis vodka punch and grilled meats, DJs and a mandatory costume policy. Okay, it’s not really mandatory, but it’d be a shame to let your A.C. Slater getup go to waste.

Day of the Dead–ing in a Pub
SKULL CANDY

Day of the Dead–ing in a Pub

Día de los Muertos. A solid imbibing holiday. Take the celebration at Clandestino Pub, for example. They’ve got the requisite sugar skulls and live music, but they’re also handing out gratis tequila shots when you make an offering at their altar. Marlins jerseys count.

Nov 1, 10pm, Clandestino Pub, 758 Washington Ave, Miami Beach, 305-397-8946
