Things to do for April 30, 2015
Champagne Sabering, Pecan Pie and Tattoos
<div> Weekend is the best medicine. </div>
In the Battle of Saber vs. Bottle...
Sharp objects and alcohol. Typically, an ill-advised mix. Unless you happen to be at the St. Regis’s new happy hour at exactly 7:30pm to witness the business end of a saber slice cleanly through the neck of a champagne bottle. Because waste not, want not... or something.
Cubaocho’s hosting a little fete this Friday. It’s for jazz. And you’re invited, too. They’ll be celebrating the Miami International Jazz Fest with a film screening, drinks and a jazz piano trio led by a guy who’s done NPR and Letterman. That’s how you know it’s legit.
The One About the Derby
Lots of things can happen in two minutes. Lots. But on Saturday, a certain two minutes dubbed “The Run for the Roses” will give you a reason to drink Kaffir Lime Mint Juleps and eat chocolate chip pecan pie while watching people don a bunch of silly hats. So that’s important to know.
Where You’re Watching the Big One
If you’re not getting to the actual Mayweather versus Pacquiao fight in Vegas on Saturday, you’ll find all the requisite champagne, sofa seating and communal fire pits at E11even. Oh, and both an indoor 30-foot LED screen and a rooftop 16-foot LED to take it in. Just keeping it simple.
Because It’s Nice to Have Options
For an all-night affair: Bodega’s got mariachis, a truck doling out gratis churros and a
“shot chair” until 5am.
For regrets: Toro Toro has a $5 DIY tequila bar and tattoo artists on hand.
For some fresh air: There’ll be a build-your-own margarita bar and piñatas on the Gale’s rooftop. Aim high.
