Your Perks: 1) A pair of custom-made jeans you can wear for the better part of 2015 (and beyond). 2) A unique print of famous superheroes like you’ve never seen them before. Seriously, look. 3) A few things to make happy hour healthier. There’s a sentence you never thought you’d read.
Things to do for December 24, 2014
Drinking Cuban Eggnog and Getting Blasted with Paint
’Twas the night before weekend.
Chinese Feasting on Christmas
First comes the Christmas morning part. That’ll happen tomorrow, naturally. Then comes the part where you start getting hungry for some sweet-and-sour whole snapper and Szechuan-style lobster. Then you’ll get to the “Oh, Monty’s Sunset is serving up exactly that” part. That’s the good part.
Get on This Cuban Eggnog at Area 31
It’s been too long since you’ve had eggnog—okay, no, you’re probably having some right now. But what you need to have is this: Area 31’s take on the Cuban version using coconut cream, condensed milk, rum and homemade dulce de leche—all mixed sans egg. You’ll be okay, really.
Life in Color. It’s a massive party. In Sun Life Stadium (see: massive). With aerialists. And fire shows. Also, DJs spinning while cannons blast gallons of paint all over everyone. Maybe just buy a new shirt afterward.
The New Brunch Scene at Porfirio’s
Porfirio’s is doing the brunch thing now. Every Sunday. Where you’ll find mole poblano chicken, slow-roasted pork and simmering pots of tortilla soup being continuously rolled out, alongside a steady stream of micheladas and mimosas. What you won’t find: people who hate excessive brunches.
What Else Is New
Crucial Beer and Ice Cream Intel
In frozen-dessert news: One of Argentina’s classic gelaterias has made its way to Lincoln
Road with pressed ice cream sandwiches using Hawaiian rolls. Challenge accepted.
In beer news: The Riverside Market crew has opened up Fort Lauderdale’s first brew supply shop and new home of Native Brewing. Prost accordingly.
