Scotch and cigars. They go together like... well, like drinking and smoking. And yet, here we are in 2017 and still no vending machines spitting out hand-rolled cigars infused with 12-year-old Macallan on every corner. Until that situation is fixed and America is truly great again, turn your attention to Perks, where you’ll find some along with a healthy discount.
Things to do for January 25, 2017
Sugar, Aliens and Comfort Food
You Know, Your Average WeekendBy Ginger Harris
Bring a Date. Make Some Candy. Should Be Fun.
Spun Candy Miami is now open in Midtown. It’s the UK-based confectioner’s first stateside shop, and they teach master classes on how to make your own candy there. It’s also pretty close to Valentine’s Day. We’ll just leave those words right up there for future reference.
O Cinema Throws E.T. a Birthday Screening. Beer Is Involved.
Alien life forms. They grow up so fast. Take E.T., for instance, who turns 35 this year. O Cinema is showing the flick in Wynwood for nostalgia purposes, but also for beer-from-the-cash-bar purposes. Both are pretty good purposes.
Here’s a New Poke Place to Act Surprised About
When poke bowls and crispy chicken vaca frita buns happen, we all win. When tempura fries get dipped in Kona beer batter and feta-tofu dressing, we all win. When the guy from Makoto and Nobu Lana’i brings those things to Coral Gables, it’s called PokéBao. Sorry for breaking the theme there.
Bands. Lots of Them. By the Beach.
Take a beachfront stage and acts like Hot Chip and Ghostface Killah, add in vendors like Coyo Taco and Gramps, and you’ve got... a lot to process at the first-ever FM Festival. We’ll leave you to all that processing now.
Food of the Italian and Comforting Sort in Wynwood
Here, let Nonna’s homemade meatballs at this new Italian comfort food haven called Jack’s make it all better. The rigatoni with Sunday gravy should also help. Oh, and the homemade meat loaf, too. This scenario works best if you pretend something’s wrong.
