Things to do for August 13, 2015

The Weekender

Eating Rum Popsicles, Block Partying and Boy George

Your weekend will be answered in the order it was received.

Thursday
Come. There Is Much Pasta to Be Had.
MAC IS BACK

Come. There Is Much Pasta to Be Had.

Last month, Macchialina closed its doors. Maybe you panicked. Maybe you didn’t. Maybe you did and secretly played it cool to the uninitiated who mentioned it in passing. At any rate, it’s reopening tonight with $10 plates of pasta like pappardelle Bolognese and spaghetti con vongole. But, yeah, you totally panicked.

Now open, Macchialina, 820 Alton Rd, Miami Beach, 305-534-2124

Block Partying in Downtown Tonight
RAISE THE FLAGLER

Block Partying in Downtown Tonight

They’re lighting up the historical One Flagler Building in Downtown tonight. Solid excuse for a block party. Also, a solid excuse for you to...

—Listen to live music.
—Eat some steak and popsicles.
—Drink some wine.
—Get to know your Downtown brethren.
—And... back to the wine.

Friday
Tomorrow: Boy George at Wall. Yep.
BY GEORGE

Tomorrow: Boy George at Wall. Yep.

If you’ve ever said to yourself, “Self, the ’80s were interesting. I’d like to relive them for a night with bolo ties, pegged pants and Boy George leading a rousing rendition of ‘Karma Chameleon.’” Two things: 1) the latter will be going down at Wall, 2) bolo ties never say die.

Saturday
James Dean’s Jacket. Classic.
DRESS REHEARSAL

James Dean’s Jacket. Classic.

What is Ocean’s 11 without Frank’s narrow lapels? Rebel Without a Cause sans Dean’s leather jacket? American Gigolo minus the Armani? If these burning questions are keeping you up at night, get yourself to Nat Chediak’s discussion and screening on classic film attire. And drink some warm milk or something.

Aug 15-Sep 30, no cost, Bal Harbour Shops, 9700 Collins Ave, Bal Harbour, 786-245-2200

Wednesday
Brewery Yoga Sounds Like a Fine Idea
SET IN CONCRETE

Brewery Yoga Sounds Like a Fine Idea

You could probably use more yoga in your life. Hell, we all could. But we could also probably use a beer. So this yoga class at Concrete Beach Brewery followed by a pint of beer might not be such a crazy idea after all.
