Things to do for June 08, 2016

The Weekender

Poolside Rum Punch, Fried Chicken and Many a Copa Watch Party

Two wrongs don’t make a weekend.

Wednesday
Beer and Soccer. That Works.
COPA CABANA

Beer and Soccer. That Works.

Copa season’s here. And through June 26, you can rely on American to air Messi and the gang kicking balls around. Which just means that they’re screening the games. Which also means that you’ll be drinking $3 beers and eating short rib mac and cheese. And not bringing a vuvuzela.

Thursday
A Very Important Fried-Chicken Update
SPRING FEVER

A Very Important Fried-Chicken Update

Spring Chicken is opening an outpost in Fort Lauderdale. And for tomorrow night’s grand-opening party, you can expect:

Jun 9, 5-8pm, no cover, Spring Chicken, 2400 N Federal Hwy, Fort Lauderdale, 954-780-3050

Friday
It’s a Bookstore, but Also Not
LEBO KNOWS

It’s a Bookstore, but Also Not

Books & Books, fine local purveyor of... books, has joined forces with No Boundaries and Lebo to open up a new shop in Wynwood. There, you’ll find vinyl records, discounted tomes, bikes and signed prints from Lebo himself. So, yes, this is definitely in Wynwood.

Saturday
You Look Like You Could Use a Summer Block Party
DISTRICT CHAMPION

You Look Like You Could Use a Summer Block Party

The newly christened Leah Arts District is celebrating the impending event known as “summer” with a block party involving live music by DJ Le Spam and Big Chief Brass Band, the city’s best food trucks, art, beer, whiskey and more beer. Just saying. There’s beer.

Sunday
Wherein You Do Fun Things by a Pool
BOILING POINT

Wherein You Do Fun Things by a Pool

Time: Noon.
What’s Happening: A bayou boil.
Where It’s Happening: The Confidante.

You might remember it as the Thompson. No matter. Especially when you’re being plied with Louisiana rum punch and prawns by the pool. But also because they’ll have a group called the Bad Apples Brass Band playing. Also because of that.

Jun 12, noon-4pm, $30 at door, The Confidante, 4041 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-424-1234
