Let sleeping weekends lie.

WHAT’S IN A GAME

The Sega Genesis Revival Starts... Now

Cafeina is doing a ’90s game night on Thursdays now. A DJ will be providing an era-appropriate soundtrack while you partake in $5 pours of beer and a few rounds on the resident Super Nintendo and Sega Genesis systems. In conclusion: ha.

You and a Date and Some Popcorn and Footloose
’LOOSE CANON

You and a Date and Some Popcorn and Footloose

Once, there was a small town where music was banned. Then, Kevin Bacon came along and angry-danced his way through a warehouse, which resulted in Chris Penn mastering the robot. The film you’ll be watching on the sand during Hyde’s next movie night should fill in the gaps, but yeah.

Saturday
This Is a Pretty Weird Game
REMOTE CONTROL

This Is a Pretty Weird Game

Your date: “Oh, I love playing games.”
You: “Cool. Let’s meet at the Miami Cemetery and put on a headset where a remote voice will tell us where to go and what to do and generally mess with our sense of reality.”
Your date: “I mean, Jenga’s fine, too.”

Sunday
Brunch Inside. Brunch Outside. Options.
TRAYMORE TO LOVE

Brunch Inside. Brunch Outside. Options.

Sure, the inside of the Traymore is lovely. But we have it on good authority that their new brunch menu of Maine lobster toast, roe-topped eggs benedict and gin cocktails stands up to the breezy elements of the patio quite nicely. Just something to think about, is all.

The Triumphant Return of a Classic Cuban Beer
CONCRETE JUNGLE

The Triumphant Return of a Classic Cuban Beer

In 1888, a brewery called La Tropical opened in Cuba. It had a garden, where much beer was consumed. After 120 years, it closed. Enter: Concrete Beach. They’ve recreated La Tropical’s recipe and are channeling its beer garden with a pig roast and cigar party on Sunday. Heroes.
