THE CORN ULTIMATUM

Typical Beer-and-Popcorn Pairing Here

Beer and popcorn. They’re the Rudolph and Santa of eating. We don’t know what that means. All we know is that Funky Buddha Brewery is pairing four beers to four popcorns to resolve life’s burning questions about the compatibility of Belgian pale ale and truffle/parmesan/black garlic. We should’ve said that.

Thursday
Seeing Ramen Where There Was No Ramen Before
RAMEN AT WORK

Seeing Ramen Where There Was No Ramen Before

Last time you went to Baby Jane, it wasn’t for ramen and dumplings from Japan’s Shimuja. There was no donburi in bowls made from volcanic sand. And no sake cocktails. Then somebody decided that situation had to change and handed the whole kitchen over. It’s for your own good.

Friday
Dance. Check Out a Banksy. Have Some Punch.
ORA BOREALIS

Dance. Check Out a Banksy. Have Some Punch.

Things you’ll see at South Beach’s new nightclub and lounge, Ora:

1) Paintings by Banksy and Murakami.
2) A menu of punch bowls.
3) A table butler arranging said punch bowls.
4) A lot of fetching strangers.
5) A lot of fetching former strangers.

Now open, Ora, 2000 Collins Ave, Miami Beach, 305-912-1010

Home Alone and Gremlins and S’mores
ALONE RANGER

Home Alone and Gremlins and S’mores

Gremlins and Home Alone are showing Friday at a drive-in double feature. You’ll enjoy a s’mores kit, and hopefully come away with a renewed sense of the holiday spirit and a deeper understanding of the dangers of neglecting psychotic, tiny entities. Like gremlins. And children.

Saturday
On Guava Mimosas. On Crab-Stuffed Lobster.
FEAST MASTER

On Guava Mimosas. On Crab-Stuffed Lobster.

Saturday morning: It’s off to Eating House’s Mañana Buena brunch for guava mimosas and porchetta pan con lechon with friends.
Saturday night: You’re with loved ones at Izzy’s New England–themed Feast of the Seven Fishes so everyone can have some Maryland-crab-stuffed lobster.

Your gift to everyone will be a clean kitchen on Sunday.

Hadley Tomicki lives in Los Angeles. He is probably going nowhere on the 10 Freeway this very second.
