New Tapas Place. You Should Go.

Should you find yourself meandering through the wilds of Wynwood soon, know that there is now a beacon of tapas shining boldly through the night. Its name is Rust. And there, you’ll consort with sausage croquetas, truffled mushroom fries and wine. You’re only as good as the company you keep.

Now open, Rust Wynwood, 2621 NW 2nd Ave, Space 28, 305-576-6811

We’ve Got Beach Chair Cocktail Delivery Now

Here’s a delivery app designed specifically for the beach. You fire it up and then food and cocktails from the likes of the Fontainebleau get delivered directly to your beach chair or towel. You could also throw sunscreen and a hat into your order, but it’s best not to forget your priorities.

How Purdy Turns Another Year Older

Purdy turns 16 on Friday. Reflect upon that for a moment.



Good. That was nice. Also nice: they’ll be celebrating with an ’80s-themed party, where you dress as your favorite ’80s movie character and they provide the open bar. You don’t have to reflect upon that part.

Dec 16, 10pm-5am (open bar from 10pm-midnight), no cover, Purdy Lounge, 1811 Purdy Ave, Miami Beach, 305-531-4622, RSVP here

To Hialeah, for Beer and Holiday Merriment

This Saturday, the Leah Arts District is throwing a holiday block party with all the trimmings: a food truck roundup approved by Burger Beast, DJs, over 40 pop-up shops and drinkable provisions from Unbranded Brewery. Three cheers for drinkable provisions.

A Bad Santa Brunch Is What This Is

You may have noticed an uptick in ugly sweaters and Feliz Navidad renditions around town lately. That’s because it’s the holidays. So you can’t blame Tap 42 for pulling together a brunch with red-and-white pancakes, Festivus cocktails and Santa himself handing out whiskey shots. Can’t blame them at all.

Dec 18, 11am-3pm, no cover, Tap 42 Coral Gables, 301 Giralda Ave, Coral Gables, 786-391-1566

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.
