Drinking Cuban Eggnog and Getting Blasted with Paint

’Twas the night before weekend.

Wednesday
Thursday
Chinese Feasting on Christmas
YOU REQUIRE: HOLIDAY SUSTENANCE

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.

Friday
Get on This Cuban Eggnog at Area 31
YOU REQUIRE: NOG. SIMPLE.

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.

Available now at Area 31, 270 Biscayne Blvd Way, 305-424-5234

Getting Blasted with Paint. For Fun.
YOU REQUIRE: DRY CLEANING

Getting Blasted with Paint. For Fun.

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.

Dec 26, 4pm; Dec 27, 2pm; $84.99-$204.99, Sun Life Stadium, 347 Don Shula Dr, Miami Gardens, 305-943-8000

Sunday
The New Brunch Scene at Porfirio’s
YOU REQUIRE: ENDLESS MICHELADAS

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.

Sundays, 11am-4pm, $55 ($25 additional for bottomless drinks), Porfirio’s Restaurant, 850 Commerce St, Miami Beach, 786-216-7675

What Else Is New
