The Weekender

New Breakfast, Movies on the Sand and a Baguette Battle

The student has become the weekend.

Play Some Dominoes. Drink a Beer.
BONE UP

Play Some Dominoes. Drink a Beer.

Unpopular opinion: giant Jenga has had its day. Just has. Conveniently, the crew at Concrete Beach is essentially recreating Little Havana’s Domino Park every Thursday with beer flights and as many rounds of bones as you can handle. Your straw fedora moment is now.

Baguette Battles Exist, and You’re Going to One
BREAD WINNER

Baguette Battles Exist, and You’re Going to One

Three reasons you’ll want to bear witness to tomorrow’s baguette battle:

1) The likes of La Provence, Chocolate Fashion and True Loaf will be going crust-to-crust.
2) There’ll be a grand tasting of baguettes.
3) But also, charcuterie and a cheese buffet.

In a baguette battle, everyone wins.

Friday
New Breakfast Spot. New Lunch Spot. Go.
IT TAKES TWO

New Breakfast Spot. New Lunch Spot. Go.

When breakfast calls: The St. Regis’s pastry chef has his own digs now in the form of Bachour (pictured). Guava cream cheese eclairs and Nutella brioche are involved.
When lunch calls: Captain Jim’s got a new look, with a stone crab station and a shiny new bar. It’s a good look.

Saturday
Bogart, Bacall, Wine and a Bunch of Sand
SAND TRAP

Bogart, Bacall, Wine and a Bunch of Sand

The Edition is about to open up their lounge-y Sandbox for a screening of Bogart and Bacall’s Key Largo. You and your date will settle in and be proffered a picnic basket filled with wine, crudités, shrimp cocktail and kale salad. Feel free to bring some Mike & Ikes or something.

Sunday
Spasso and Brunch Are Now an Item
MY SPASSO CALLED LIFE

Spasso and Brunch Are Now an Item

That nice new Italian spot in the Grove, Spasso, is doing brunch now. One being manned by a chef with two Michelin-starred restaurants under his belt. What that means for you: egg and carving stations, homemade pastries and braised short rib on truffled mash. Champagne. It also means champagne.

Sundays, 11am-3pm, $36, Spasso, 3540 Main Hwy, 305-441-0219
