Two Brewery Parties and One Burger Battle

Not to Mention That Massive Temple of Stores and Restaurants in Brickell

By Jackie Gutierrez-Jones

The way to a person’s heart is through their weekend.

Wednesday
Day of the Dead Meets Brewery
DEAD RINGER

Day of the Dead Meets Brewery

Most nights, you walk into Biscayne Bay Brewing and drink beer. Tonight, you’ll walk into Biscayne Bay Brewing and drink beer, yes, but also celebrate Dia de los Muertos with the BC Tacos truck, gelato pops and music from Suenalo. So it’s different tonight.

Thursday
Yep, Brickell City Centre Finally Arrives Tomorrow
CENTRE STAGE

Yep, Brickell City Centre Finally Arrives Tomorrow

The construction. The traffic. The payoff: finally here. Brickell City Centre is opening its doors tomorrow morning with over 60 shops, some interesting eateries on deck and a 150,000-square-foot environmental art installation where you can sit a spell with a cocktail. Which is the best kind of art, really.

Re: That comely vegetarian you just met

Just thought you should know that there’s a plant-based burger battle happening tomorrow with chefs from SunCafe in LA, Arlo’s in Austin and Nobu Hotel, plus beer from Funky Buddha and Lincoln’s Beard. Just seems coincidental, is all.

Friday
New World Center Goes Very South Beach
ORCHESTRAL MANEUVERS IN THE DARK

New World Center Goes Very South Beach

Well, look at that. New World Center decided to be a SoBe nightclub for Halloween this year. Sure, they’re a few days off the mark, but let’s not judge. Instead, go and revel in the electronic lights and the DJ Le Spam/mezzo-soprano mashup until 1am. Good costume.

Saturday
This Holiday Block Party Doesn’t Care What the Date Is
HOLIDAY CHEERS

This Holiday Block Party Doesn’t Care What the Date Is

Concrete Beach is about to close down a city block for a holiday party. One can never be too early with these things. Anyway, there’ll be food from Ms. Cheezious. Music by Afrobeta. Live painting, too. And pours of their new Deck the Walls brew. The ugly Christmas sweater stays home.

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.
