Discretion Is Advised

Sometimes Cupid gets liberal with those arrows. Which probably explains why Ora’s mistress-themed fete is happening tonight instead of on Valentine’s Day. Side project activities include dancing to a DJ, a kissing booth and sipping other-woman-inspired cocktails like the Angelina with mezcal, tequila and chili powder. Maybe have two.

Go Paint Something at Art Wynwood

This year, you don’t just see the exhibits at Art Wynwood, you make one. Artist Trey Speegle will be leaving his mural in your hands, along with his brushes and paints. Grab a date, follow his paint-by-numbers system, then brag to anyone who’ll believe that you showed at Art Wynwood.

How to Wind Up on a Yacht at the Boat Show

If you only see one yacht out of the many in town this weekend, make sure it’s the 111-foot one that’s included in the new VIP experience at this year’s Boat Show. You can eat on it. You can drink on it. You can get massages and dance on it. Good boat, basically.

The Mandarin Oriental Would Like You to Have This New Waterfront Terrace

There’s something new coming to the Mandarin Oriental. There will be a waterfront patio involved. There will be DJs and Peruvian-inspired drinks like the signature Yaku with rum, mango puree and chicha morada. There will be mussels and empanadas, too. Always with the mussels and empanadas.

Saturday
Beer. Many Different Kinds of Beer.

Beer. Many Different Kinds of Beer.

Eighty craft beers. Mana Wynwood. Saturday. Yes, some WakeFest 2017–related details are more important than others. Fine, the food truck fare from Ms. Cheezious, Purple People Eatery and the Salty Donut can stay, too.

On a typical Wednesday, Ginger Harris is likely seeking reposado tequila, squeezing her way to the front of a concert or jumping on the back of an Indian motorcycle. That’s just Wednesdays, though.
