The Weekender

David Bowie, a Lunchtime Dance Party and a Rooftop Pop-Up

The Grapes of Weekend

Wednesday
The Bear Grylls of Pop-Up Restaurants
PREYDATOR

The Bear Grylls of Pop-Up Restaurants

There’s a new pop-up restaurant on the rooftop of the 1 Hotel called Prey. And the James Beard Award–nominated chef behind it has promised to hunt, dive and forage for everything you see on the menu. Like the feral roasted pig. And the carp ribs. Carp ribs? Carp ribs.

Friday
Your Weekly Pool Party Briefing
BE LIKE SPIKE

Your Weekly Pool Party Briefing

Another weekend, another pool party. Life’s tough, we know. Spike Mendelsohn’s hosting this one with a bunch of other chefs, and they’ll be competing against each other in things like raft relay races and pool treasure hunts while you drink drinks and eat things. Stay strong.

Just a Big Fat Lunchtime Dance Party
HEART OF THE MATTER

Just a Big Fat Lunchtime Dance Party

Normally, nightclubs open at... night. But this Friday afternoon, DJ Penguin Prison will be manning the decks for a lunch dance party where you’ll get a gratis cocktail and a prepacked lunch to take with you. Sorry we had to say the words “DJ Penguin Prison” back there.

Saturday
You’ve Never Seen Bowie Like This
I AM LEGEND

You’ve Never Seen Bowie Like This

Well, here’s a great reason to go to the Markowicz Fine Art gallery: David Bowie. You’ll find a bunch of never-before-seen photos of the Thin White Duke there that were shot by fashion photographer Markus Klinko. You can even grab a few for yourself if you’re so inclined. If. Ha.

Sunday
There’s a Farmers’ Market at This Brunch
FARMED, I’M SURE

There’s a Farmers’ Market at This Brunch

The Ritz-Carlton is relaunching their massive Sunday brunch with all of the usual suspects—carving stations, mounds of seafood, bubbly. But now, you’ll also find a farmers’ market there with fresh produce and other local things that you can take home. They’ll put a farmers’ market anywhere these days.

Last Sunday of the month starting Feb 28, 9am-3pm, $49 ($18 for Bloody Mary, mimosa and bubbly bar), The Ritz-Carlton Coconut Grove, 3300 SW 27th Ave, 305-644-4680
