Capping Off the Week with Gratis Cuban Beer

The Wynwood Yard is hosting a week-ending happy hour. You will be plied with gratis Hatuey beer. Music will make your feet move around. A general environment of convivial chaos will reign. But mostly, you’ll hang out and drink Cuban beer.

After You Beer, You Bonfire

Dear Summer,

Unofficially, you’re just about out of here. But you’ve been particularly brutal on us. So at the very least, you owe us a party. On the beach. Some barbecue would also be nice. And please throw in a bonfire and some fire spinning. We trust you can handle that.

If You Must Sweat, Sweat Like This

1 Hotel has just launched a bunch of new fitness classes. You’ll find a 60-minute Spartan Revolution class using intervals and bodyweight, a high-intensity training session on their private beach and rooftop yoga. Oh, and the classes won’t cost anything through the end of the month. There’s that, too.

A Night of Robots and Art
MR. ROBOT

A Night of Robots and Art

Maybe you need a change of scenery. Maybe you enjoy gratis wine. Maybe you like... robots. Related: there’s a block party up in Fort Lauderdale with all of that. You can also pick up some art and do the silent disco thing with someone dressed as a massive LED-clad robot. Which is the robot part.

Fi’lia Is Coming. Here’s a Taste.
THE ITALIAN JOB

Fi’lia Is Coming. Here’s a Taste.

Michael Schwartz. No introduction needed. But he’d like you to meet his new Italian spot called Fi’lia. And even though it’s not open yet, he’ll be giving you a three-course preview of what’s to come for one week. Expect pizza, pasta and a tequila/Campari mashup. You’ve come a long way, meet-and-greets.

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.
