Let’s Bastille Day, Shall We?
BASTILLE THE ONE

Let’s Bastille Day, Shall We?

A sample itinerary for Brasserie Central’s Bastille Day celebration:

12:30pm: Guess the weight of a panier garni. That means “gift basket” in French. Yes, there’s wine.
1:15pm: Listen to Parisian tavern music. Partake in oysters and éclairs. Note the $4 champagne.
2:00pm: Glance at the mime.
2:01pm: Drink the $4 champagne.

Repeat as necessary.

Jul 14, noon-6pm, no cover, Brasserie Central, 320 San Lorenzo Ave, Coral Gables, 786-536-9386

For Those About to Salsa
RUM RUNNER

For Those About to Salsa

The Ritz-Carlton Key Biscayne is celebrating 15 years. So if you happen to find yourself at Rumbar on Friday, expect to be surrounded by comely salsa dancers enticing you with gratis rum drinks and inviting you to join them on the dance floor. The things you do for rum.

Saturday
Found You a New Place to Eat Donuts
PASS THE SALTY

Found You a New Place to Eat Donuts

The beach has a new donut shop. It’s the Salty Donut. Yes, your favorite purveyors of circular dough are bringing their talents to the other side of the causeway in the form of a pop-up. Talents that include maple bacon and glazed buttercream. Because they make donuts.

A Grilling Master Class. Related: You’re Going.

Los Fuegos is a great restaurant. Francis Mallmann is a great grill master. And on Saturday, he’ll be at Los Fuegos to teach you and 19 other people everything he knows, followed by a wine-paired lunch. When in summer...

Sunday
Watching Splash from a Pool Makes Damn Good Sense
SPLASH ZONE

Watching Splash from a Pool Makes Damn Good Sense

Screening an outdoor movie from a pool during the summer. That’s some sound thinking. And it’s happening this Sunday at the Standard, where they’ll be playing the ’80s seminal mermaid classic, Splash, starring Tom Hanks, Daryl Hannah and a ridiculous plotline.

Jackie Gutierrez-Jones finds unhyphenated names quaint. She believes that croquetas and gin cocktails are suitable precursors to running and hoisting heavy weights over one’s head.
