Things to do for December 11, 2014
Champagne, Nutella Coffee and All the Ceviche
Jingle all the weekend.
Because Clothes Are Necessary
Clothes. You’re probably wearing some right now. Probably. So it just makes good sense to stock up on some more of them at the new Basico in Wynwood. What you’ll find: Moods of Norway button-downs, Swims boat shoes and Closed denim pants. Also known as jeans.
Eating Legit Kobe at Red
If it’s “Kobe” beef you want, well, just about everyone has it. But if you want the real deal, Red, the Steakhouse’s got you. See, Chef Peter has the paperwork to back up his Miyazaki Kobe. And it’s available for eating or gifting. The Kobe, we mean. Not the paperwork.
It’s Snowing at This Bar
This just in: snow. But before you start blaming that vision on your peppermint martinis, you should know that the Conrad is dusting their bar with a snowstorm look-alike every half an hour. And offering $50 bottles of Veuve that go up by $10 every hour. Time is champagne.
La Mar: Now with More Brunch
Your La Mar brunch strategy:
1. Order a pisco sour. Note that they’re “bottomless.”
2. Request a second one. To reduce wait time.
3. Peruse the ceviche and causa stations.
4. Order another pisco.
5. Realize that there are grilled-seafood stations... and great, now you have to start over again.
What Else Is New
Your New Caffeine Options
If you’re in Fort Lauderdale... Stache is opening up early in the morning with Rhino
Doughnuts and pours of Panther Coffee. Nice.
But if you’re in North Miami... There’s Nutella coffee at the new Limited Edition Caffe (pictured). At night, it turns into a wine-and-antipasti spot. As coffee shops do.
