Things to do for March 23, 2016
Rooftop Egg Hunting, Elton John and Betting on Hermit Crabs
You catch more weekends with honey than with vinegar.
It’s a Workspace, but It’s Also a Bar
There’s a new outdoor workspace in town. Well, “workspace.” See, it’s got a full-on cocktail bar with bourbon and gin and other things workspaces don’t usually have. It’s also got daybeds and “skill-building” classes, one of which involves learning to pick locks. None of this makes any sense, but you’ll allow it.
Just a Casual Thursday Hermit Crab Race
Bad news: the Kentucky Derby is 46 days away. Good news: the Krabtucky Derby is tomorrow. It’s also a race, but with... hermit crabs. And you can watch the most exciting 20 minutes in sports at Cafeina, with $5 beers and $2 sliders and ribs. It’s mostly about the hermit crab racing, though.
Elton John’s birthday is this Friday. And Fort Lauderdale thought it’d be best to celebrate that with a ’70s-era impersonator taking the stage and belting out his repertoire for you and whoever else might be into that kind of thing. Never change, Fort Lauderdale.
Private Cabana Dinner Parties at the Biltmore
The Biltmore’s opening up their poolside cabanas at night for private dinners. So that’s huge. You’ll grab a date, devise a four-course menu with the chef and maybe book some live entertainment while you’re at it. And then you’ll go on a date-related lecture tour.
First, You Brunch. Then, You Hunt Eggs.
On Easter Sunday, it behooves you to find your way to 15th & Vine, where they’ll ply you with lamb shank, short ribs and bubbly. And then let you hunt down eggs filled with various things, up to and including Toms sunglasses. Which somehow fit inside of eggs.
