A New Tea Bar Has Arrived

There’s a new performance art/tea joint in town called Tea & Poets. You’ll find live music and the occasional spoken-word night there. But also, a tea bar. With concoctions like the Green Dragon, made with gunpowder green tea, lime, sugar and firewater bitters. Gunpowder and fire: what could go wrong?

Now open, Tea & Poets, 5701 Sunset Dr, #126, South Miami, 786-216-7201

Sweet Liberty is now the only place you can indulge in plates of Michelle Bernstein’s famous buttermilk-marinated fried bird. And for $39, they’ll throw in a side, some dessert and one of their Tales of the Cocktail–approved drinks. Synergy, people. Synergy.

Available through Sep 30, Sweet Liberty, 237-B 20th St, Miami Beach, 305-763-8217

Full-Moon-ing in a Brewery

What you’ll find at Concrete Beach’s full moon masquerade:

—Beer.
—3D projections.
—Silent disco.
—Telescopes and a live electricity demo by the Frost Museum of Science.

Beer pairs well with knowledge.

It’s Practically Raining Croquetas Here

It’s Practically Raining Croquetas Here

Croquetas: they’re arguably Miami’s primary source of sustenance. And on Friday night, 20 purveyors of the deliciously fried food ball will be competing for top honors. You’ll get to taste each one while enjoying Night Owl cookies, beer from Biscayne Bay Brewing and Cuban coffee. Strong secondary sources of sustenance.

NEVER SAY DIE

It’s 11:30pm. Saturday Night. You’re...

... watching The Goonies in 35mm. At O Cinema Miami Beach. They’ll have beer and wine at the concession stand, too. Which is the preferred method of taking in the Truffle Shuffle in all of its glory.

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.
